Testimonials from our Customers

I was looking to take my wife on a surprise anniversary trip to cancun and was not sure where to stay. I called Mrs.Paula and she recommended I take a look at the royal cancun. I looked at the pictures they were so beautiful so that is where I decided I wanted to go. Mrs.Paula got everything lined up for me. On May 14 we used the park and relax shuttle buses. They would follow you to to your car and pick up and put you luggage on the shuttle bus for you and the take you straight to the airport. We then left RDU airport heading to Cancun. When we got there the transportation that was set up was there waiting for us to take us to the resort. Olympus Tour gave us a cold bottle of water and gave my wife a piece of paper with some local art in it explaining what the artwork was. After we arrived at our resort we were given a cold glass of champagne and a cold wet towel, were taken to desk where the concierge checked us in. About 4:00 PM we were taken to our room and the bellboy was not far behind us. The bellboy brought our luggage in and set it on the table. The room was nice and big. We had a king size bed, a two person jacuzzi, a very nice big balcony with a hammock, big two person shower with jets coming out of the wall and a rain shower head, a nice vanity just outside of the bathroom with a nice vanity inside the bathroom. That night I surprised my wife with a romantic candlelight dinner on the beach. It was great. When we returned to our room the covers was pulled down and a romantic scent oil was lit and 2 Hershey's kisses on the bed telling us sweet dreams. All of the food was great, you can go to any of their restaurants and there is nothing that was not good. Everybody that worked there was so nice they would literally do anything for you. They also greeted you with their hand over heart and saying ola. Upon arriving back at RDU the shuttle bus was there waiting and we jumped on on. They took us right to our car and dropped us off. Thank you Mrs. Paula for everything. We can't wait to go back.

Both my trips with Southern Cruise Connection have been “first-rate”.  A long weekend trip to New York included a multitude of venues, plays, dinners, great transportation.  Paula is very organized and we stayed on schedule.  She really goes out of her way to ensure everyone has a good time and memorable trip.
The longer trip to New York was more of the same.  Stayed on schedule; visited all the venues on the itinerary; allowed time on arrival to rest and prepare for the cruise (her recommendation based on the travel time to Hawaii. 
Prices on both trips were very reasonable and I absolutely received my money’s worth and more.
Paula goes way beyond the expectations of her clients.  Would travel with her again……hands down

Four of us girls took a trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.  It was a very rememberable, exciting and relaxing trip.  We swam with the sharks, snorkeled with the sting-rays and even tried the paddle boarding.  The water was a beautiful two-tone blue.  The resort we stayed at was marvelous and staff were so friendly, helpful and eager to assist.  Everyone spoke English very well.   Thank you Paula for planning such a wonderful trip for us.  We will be calling on you again.

I have traveled with Paula Anderson, Southern Cruise & Travel, on several occasions. I went to New York with a group of forty. We went to two shows, ate at spectacular restaurants, and did some shopping. This was all worry free for me, Paula did all the planning, all I had to do was be ready to meet the group and off we went with no worries. Great trip.

My second trip was also with a group to Hawaii for ten days. We were in Honolulu for three days then cruises for seven days to Maui, Hilo, Kona, and Kauai. Everyday Paula planned excursions, all I had to do was be ready for beautiful sights and all worry free. Unbelievable trip.

I will travel with Paula, Southern Cruise & Travel, again knowing it will be worry free, and all I need to do is just enjoy. I suggest if you want a worry free vacation travel with Southern Cruise & Travel and enjoy your vacation.

Thanks Paula for making my vacations worry free and enjoyable.

We had the best time on our 30th anniversary trip to Hawaii.  What a beautiful place,  You made us feel so special.  Everything was perfect.   The hotel in Honolulu was 1st class.  We had the best views from our balcony.  We really enjoyed the tours around Oahu that you arranged before we left on the cruise.  The cruise was fantastic.  The excursions you arranged for us at each port could not have been better.  You had everything so well organized.  We wanted to see as much of Hawaii as we could while we were there and you certainly covered all the bases.  We will be contacting you again for our future travel plans.
