Introduction: My focus is providing customers with memorable vacations and top-notch customer service. Although I help with all types of travel (tours, resorts, personalized journeys, trains, hotels), I am a cruise fanatic. I specialize in river and ocean cruises with luxury lines, themed trips, and world voyages. I have earned the highest certifications with more than a dozen cruise lines. I only book air when it accompanies other types of travel, such as tours, cruises, or all inclusive resorts. If you are looking for the cheapest prices, there are agencies that are more likely to offer that. I focus on giving the best value and help my clients with every aspect of their trip. My host agency is affiliated with American Express and offers the many benefits for Gold, Platinum, and Centurion cardholders. I may work online, but I am not a member of a call center or online website. I am a travel agent who can help identify your best travel options. Plus, someone is available for assistance 24/7 when you travel. I often develop personal relationships with my clients because I enjoy working with them and I think they can tell I care about them and their trips. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with an incredible vacation!

Julia is delightful to work with! She really cared about the trip I had in mind for my little family and worked with me to make it happen! But then, COVID hit! Our plans had to be postponed! As soon as we felt ready to plan travel again, I didn’t hesitate. I reached out to Julia. She made such a great impression on me, I know she’ll help me plan a trip that my family will really love! And after all we’ve been through the past couple of years, we deserve a great one. It feels good to go into the planning stages of our next adventure knowing I have a fantastic travel agent I can count on ready to help us plan the perfect trip!

. I worked with Julia Bowen. I picked her because of her rating and she lived up to every star she has. I wish this site would let me chose all 5 instead of just 3. I was booking multiple rooms and was pretty picky about location of rooms as far as being together, near an elevator some with ocean view one with central park view with limitations on dates. an easy task for one or 2 rooms but this was for 3 or 4. she came up with multiple choices, responded to my texts immediately and worked with me into the evenings. She made this such an easy stress free and fun process. I usually booked my own but since covid I found it more difficult for me to coordinate and find what I wanted. I don't think I will be booking my own cruises anymore.

I never worked with a travel agent before and if I’m not able to use Bowen Cruises for my next vacation, the next travel agent is going to have HUGE shoes to fill. Very professional and always available. Julia gave me great information and was open and honest. From the hottest deals to the latest knowledge in all kinds of cruises, Julia was patient and always happy to answer my MANY questions. I would HIGHLY recommend Bowen Cruises to new (like me) and veteran cruisers alike.

Julia has been amazing! She spent a lot of time on the phone answering all my question. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She knows where her expertise is and where she can help. She even referred us to a colleague who had even more knowledge about the cruise we were interested in. It has been a pleasure dealing with her and we look forward to dealing with her more in the future. If you are looking for a person who will help and who is a pleasure, Julia is your lady!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I usually have great pricing that my clients are happy with. If you are looking for the lowest price possible, I would recommend that you contact an online website. The calls are usually taken by a call center, and you may talk to a different person each time, but you will get among the lowest prices possible. I provide full service for my clients and they appreciate that.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I have been traveling since I was a child and love everything about traveling. I left my corporate career to go into this field. Selling vacations is the closest I could get to selling happiness.
