Suzanne Fisher, Clia Master Cruise Counselor. Email me: email@example.com . I am a Florida Native, born and raised in Bartow in central Florida. Graduated from Florida State University in Fashion Merchandising/Marketing degree in 1984 and moved to the Tampa area. Retail brought me to Jacksonville in 1989 with the opening of The Landing. I started a new career in Travel in 1991 at Cruise Center and have been here ever since. I truly love traveling and have been helping clients create memorable trips down to the finest detail for over 25 years now. Happy clients that have great trips are my biggest reward! Fortunately, my husband Scott loves travel as much as I do, so we make the perfect pair! Aside from cruising and traveling, I enjoy the outdoors biking, boating, kayaking, the beach and fishing whenever I can!
Kathy Harris, Clia Accredited Cruise Counselor. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Born in Greensboro, NC being a Navy brat is how I ended up in Jacksonville in 1974. If you told me then that I would have a passion for travel, I would have told you that you were crazy. All the moving around for the Navy instilled a love for Travel. I have a very long Bucket List and try to work on this list as often as possible. I am fortunate to traveled to the Baltic, Australia, the Caribbean, Alaska and the Galapagos Islands. I have two sons, Brad age 33 and Chandlor age 24. Chandlor is my traveling buddy and claims he has been on 17 cruises. I have a very close knit family. My parents Chuck and Marie Marshburn just celebrated their 50th Anniversary. My sister Karla and brother Chuck all try to travel together as much as possible. We like cruising as a family as it is a great way to travel when you have multi-generations there is plenty of activities for everyone.

Ginny Perkins, Clia Master Cruise Counselor/Outside Sales. Email me at email@example.com I have been with Cruise Center since just before Suzanne and Kathy purchased it. Fifteen years and counting! My husband and I started cruising in the 80’s. We fell in love with it and cruised on many different lines. In 1995, I found the perfect job, travel agent and I still love it. I am a native of Baltimore, Maryland and have two adult children and one granddaughter. My husband’s work brought us to Fl in 1997 and we both just love it! The heat lasts too long but you don’t have to shovel it like you do the snow! Gardening, quilting and going to the beach are other activities I enjoy. I firmly believe everyone deserves a vacation. A time away from the stress of everyday living to recharge and relax. Whether just a few days or a once in a lifetime trip, I truly enjoy working with people to give them the best experience possible. After working in the office for several years, when my husband retired I became an outside agent. I am not in the office so to contact me, call my cell, 904 614-1466 or send me an email. If you don’t get right back to you I might be on a cruise or island somewhere!
