Frequently Asked Questions


What is a Cruise and Vacation Specialist?

A Cruise and Vacation Specialist is a professional travel consultant with the resources, connections and expertise to add great value to your travel plans. Specialists work in partnership with you to select and plan travel experiences that are tailored to your unique wishes and budget. The benefits of using a travel agent/specialist are many, and you may find you uncover new perks each time you work with your travel specialist.

In contrast, some travel agencies with large call centers are often inbound marketing specialists with little to no actual travel experience. They are encouraged to sell certain properties and cruise departures. Their goal is speed and volume – that means taking your order and moving on to the next customer as quickly as possible. The disadvantages of using a large call center travel agent is that they may not be able to provide guidance or answer questions about the destinations, cruise lines or properties you are interested in. Many times, due to their marketing partnerships they offer “one-size-fits-all” vacation packages.

Why Should I Use A Cruise and Vacation Specialist?

Your time away from home with family or friends is your most precious resource. You want to take advantage of an expert to help you invest it wisely. The very best travel agents, like the Cruise and Vacation Specialists of McGehee Cruise & Vacation offer great value that adds a richness of experience to your vacations and getaways. Not only will the experience you have on your vacation be enhanced, the planning will also be a much less stressful and time consuming endeavor for you. Through our status as a preferred partner with virtually every luxury travel provider in the world, we are able to offer our clients preferred rates, special amenities and sometimes credits that they cannot access on their own, through the Internet or by booking direct.

A Message to our Trusted Clients about the Coronavirus Situation


Dear Valued Friends and Clients,

At McGehee Cruise and Vacation, the health and safety of our clients is always top of mind. As the coronavirus situation evolves, we want you to know that we are working hard to stay up-to-date on all the facts so that we can help address any of your travel concerns. We’re here to help you travel smarter. We are also in constant contact with our suppliers (i.e. airlines, hotels, tour operators and cruise lines) to understand their latest policies and terms to benefit all of our clients whose travel has been impacted.

Here is some information that may be helpful.

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) resources:

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are monitoring the situation in real-time. Both organizations have issued guidance for preventing exposure to respiratory illnesses. Older adults or those with chronic medical conditions may want to seek the advice of a medical professional.

Travel warnings and advisories:

Both the U.S. State Department and governments and official tourism bureaus of destinations are great resources. They will give you up-to-date travel advisories as well as any information about the spread of coronavirus in their countries.

Making the decision to travel:

Many of our clients are continuing with their current travel plans or adopting a “wait and see” approach for future trips. We are happy to talk through any concerns you may have so you can make the best decision for you and your family.

Practical advice when traveling:

As you prepare to travel, please follow the CDC recommendations for health precautions. Practice good hygiene, good hand hygiene, cover your cough, avoid contact with symptomatic people, stay home if you are ill, and use a disinfecting wipe to clean hard surfaces while traveling.

When traveling internationally, we encourage you to enroll in the STEP program. The Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) is a free service that allow U.S. citizens and nationals traveling and living abroad to enroll their trip with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. As an enrolled traveler, you can receive important information from the Embassy about safety conditions in a destination country, help the U.S. Embassy contact you in an emergency, and help family and friends get in touch with you in an emergency.

What if I have to change my immediate plans?

Talk to us about ideas for booking a fall, winter or 2021 vacation. Many travel providers have great value-added offers and have introduced flexible policies in the event your plans change. We can assist you in finding an alternate vacation destination or moving your trip to a later time.
We know this is a difficult time for your families and businesses, as it is with ours, but we are in this together. The travel industry will persevere, just as we always have in the past.

No matter when or where you are traveling, having a trusted travel advisor can give you peace of mind. As always, we appreciate your business and are here to serve you. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Many Thanks,

Your friends at McGehee Cruise and Vacation
