There will be no salaried positions or fees paid to anyone connected with the company.

A Message from our Founder:

I retired from the cruise industry after a 40 year career as a sales, marketing and business development executive with major cruise lines and large national cruise travel retailers. In 2005, I was honored to be chosen for induction into the Cruise Line International Association’s Hall of Fame. I am personally providing the start-up seed funding for this program. We have contracted with CruiseOne/Dream Vacations, a nationally recognized cruise travel agency chain, to handle cruise bookings generated by our efforts.

I created the concept of using booked cruises to generate donations for military charities as a way to combine two of my passions – Cruising and Veteran’s causes. I served with the U.S. Army Infantry in Vietnam from 1969 to 1970 with the 11th Light Infantry Brigade of the Americal Division. I received an honorable discharge in 1971 with the rank of Sergeant E-5.

The fund raising process is a very simple program. We have identified a group of veteran-owned and operated CruiseOne/Dream Vacations franchises each of whom has agreed to make a donation to a 4 star military charity for each cruise purchased. To insure your cruise booking is registered as a “Voyages For Veterans” booking INITIAL contact should be made only via the specific toll free number on the site. Once you have identified the specific agent handling your business you should ONLY contact them via their local number which they will provide.

Each completed booking triggers a donation that is made to the charity directly from CruiseOne/Dream Vacations.The cost of the cruise in neither marked up nor influenced by the donation.

Thank you for your support.
