All About Us

Cruise Lady and Her Team

Cruise Lady is a full-service travel agency that caters to an LDS clientele. Our company was established in 1997 and specializes in escorting groups of Latter-Day Saints on cruises all over the world with “headliners” (well-known and well-loved speakers or musical artists) who lecture or entertain the group during sea days.

Cruise Lady offers customized shore excursions that complement our headliners’ lectures whenever possible.

In 2006 Cruise Lady began offering trips to Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Church History sites, Germany/Austria, and British Church History land tours, with more land sites on the drawing board.

We are proud of our Cruise Lady team. We are excited to offer you the opportunity to travel with us and to help you create a memory that will last a lifetime.

While much of our business is escorting group cruises and land tours, we are a full-service travel company. If you want to plan a family cruise, honeymoon, school reunion, company incentive cruise, or a land trip to a destination resort, just give us a call: 1-888-707-4386.

Cruise Lady got "Smart"er when "C.L.," the company car, joined the staff in May of 2008. Diane had a toy "Smart Car" on her desk for 7 years (a gift from Michael Ballam) as she waited for the "real" cars to come to the United States. After being on a waiting list for 1 1/2 years, it finally arrived. Don't be afraid to honk or wave when you see Diane or someone else from the office "Cruising" around town!
