"18 years later, Karolina's contributions have not only helped The Cruise Web become what we are today, but her advocacy and professionalism have benefited all travel retailers and the greater travel industry community.”

Throughout my 18 years in the travel industry, I have always been impressed by the unwavering creativity, professionalism and resilience of travel advisors. Advisors are the heart and soul of this industry and their hard work will assure our industry will not only persevere, but thrive."
