  3. 3. Cruisitude is an excitement that begins with the completed booking of a cruise, builds with anticipation as the sailing date approaches and finally erupts as you are welcomed on-board "your" ship. Problems on land seem to fade away and all is well in your world. Dan Cottle
  4. 4. Get a new attitude with Cruisitude. Sherry Leybovich
  5. 5. Cruisitude establishes the vacation mood for the client.  It lets them know that their voyage has already started.  In the capable hands of a CruisePlanners travel agent, Cruisitude brings the dimension of expertise, proficiency and a can do attitude with a smile that a client will not experience any place else. Sherry Leybovich

  11. 11. Cruisitude - the best vacation experience there is! Where else can you sail to beautiful destinations around the world on a floating hotel and have just about anything your heart desires! Vera Kuemmel
  12. 12. Our idea: it would be great to be able to make PINS that can be bought in the Cruise Planners Store for agents to purchase to give to their clients.

  26. 26. My few thoughts about what cruisitude means to me: Standing over the wake and waving goodbye to the rat race…at least for a while! Cozying up on a lounge chair & falling asleep in the sun with the warm breeze in my hair, waking up once in a while to sip my rum drink! To sleep at sea is the best rest you can get & no snooze button needed! It's dreamlike waking up in a new country each morning! Jennifer Baptista

  33. 33. Elizabeth Dimichino & Angie Lippsett
  34. 34. I have a story where I had to get a “cruisitude” pretty quickly.  A couple of summers ago, I was playing on a co-ed softball team and I got hit right between the eyes with a ball and broke my nose in 17 pieces!  OUCH!  After several visits to the Ear, Nose, Throat doctor and a couple of surgeries, I gave him my business card and said, “Now that I’ve done business with you, I would love for you to do business with me”!  (That’s my cruisitude one liner!)  Since then, he has booked 3 cruises with me and the most recent, he and his 2 sons booked an Africa trip to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro and do a 3 day safari afterwards and will be departing the end of this month.  Just the Africa trip alone was to the tune of over $37,000!  This cruisitude turned pain into gain!!! JJ Kuykendall
  35. 35. When all you ever think about night or day, sleep or awake, work or play, is cruising, you have cruisitude. John and Diane Winkowski
  36. 36. When you need an intervention because you are hooked on cruising, you have cruisitude. John and Diane Winkowski
  37. 37. To me cruisitude is defined as: that Margaritaville, it's 5:00 somewhere, laidback, don't worry; be happy, easy, breezy, take it as it comes attitude. Carol Garza
  38. 38. Cruisitude: any cruise on any ships and any itinerary is better than staying home! Daejin Suh
  39. 39. Regroup. Relax. Revive. Repeat! Barbara Arendt
  40. 40. Counting ships, not sheep. Sandi and Terry Moore

  44. 44. The state of mind, where you don't mind anything - because you're cruising! Sandi and Terry Moore
  45. 45. Find your inner Cruisitude and change your entire latitude... Thomas O'Hara
  46. 46. A state of mind where all you can think of is your next cruise. The new ports you've never been to, the brand new ships and the excitement of being on one of them, dancing the night away, relaxation and feeling the ocean breeze on the top deck. That's Cruiseitude! Leona Greeves
  47. 47. Cruisitude is setting sail, standing on the Lido Deck and watching the magnificent sunset disappear over the horizon. Janet & Rich Abbott
  48. 48. Cruisitude is the distance between immeasurable pleasurable heights. Eulalie Young
  49. 49. Cruisitude is about finding the right latitude for the attitude! It’s about service, asking questions to discover my clients, real hopes and dreams for their vacations. Secretly desiring some rugged adventure?  How about Alaska or South America? To boldly go where nobody else they know has gone?  Let’s talk Tahiti or Asia! Everyone wants to travel, so I don’t have to sell that, but I have to set myself apart as the one who will help my clients explore the world of their dreams. In other words, my cruisitude is to help them discover  their  cruisitude! Janet McLaren
  50. 50. Cruisitude is convincing the general public what it is they are missing out on, if they have never been on a CRUISE. I always tell my clients that "IT ONLY TAKES ONE TO GET HOOKED ON CRUISING". If they would just give it a chance, and forget all the excuses of getting seasick, or being too structured or too expensive and really see how GREAT CRUISING REALLY IS. They would have a great CRUISITUDE and want the whole world to know about it. Sandy Heasley
  51. 51. Show us your Cruisitude! Mary House
  52. 52. Be a Cruisitude. Mary House
  53. 53. If it walks like a Cruisitude, and talks like a Cruisitude, it must be a Cruisitude. Mary House
  54. 54. Cruise Planners ....not an ordinary Cruisitude! Mary House
  55. 55. Have a Cruisitude Day! Mary House
  56. 56. Cruisitude is the excited feeling you get when you first walk on a cruise ship Lois Ann Cianci
  57. 57. Cruisitude is the serenity you feel as you sit on your balcony and see the vast ocean glimmering in the warm sunlight. Lois Ann Cianci
  58. 58. Cruisitude is the festive ambiance found on every cruise ship. Lois Ann Cianci
