Gina, Mike, and their talented staff, have grown NorthStar Cruises into one of the most respected vacation advisor companies in the travel industry. While NorthStar’s production numbers continue to increase each year, the most significant changes have occurred in our marketing, website presentation and travel industry affiliations. NorthStars valued clients are the driving force behind these changes.
