The Cruise Planners travel franchise isn’t the largest home-based franchise agency for nothing. Our network of more than 2,500 travel advisors has been nurtured over the course of three decades to make us leading experts in our industry — and we aren’t just tooting our own horns!

"Being named one of South Florida Business Journal's Top 100 Private Companies is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our incredible team of franchise owners, advisors and our Home Office Team,” said Michelle Fee, CEO and founder of Cruise Planners. “We are proud to be part of the vibrant South Florida business community and will continue to push the boundaries of innovation in the travel industry.”

Michelle, a young mom, travel advisor, and visionary, founded the Cruise Planners business model in 1994 with the idea of changing the travel world, to make travel more accessible and fun for everyone, and to allow franchisees, particularly women-owned businesses, to benefit from expert resources and guidance. Today, Michelle and the rest of the Cruise Planners team work hard every day to make sure franchise owners have the technology, marketing, and training they need to be the best in the industry, taking a hands-on approach to ensure Cruise Planners travel advisors are equipped for success.
