About Us



After more years than we care to admit in the restaurant business, Peter and Suzanne joined the fantastic team at Golden Bear Travel, a well-known and highly respected leader in the luxury cruise market in 1993. We were known as "PJ" and "Taylor" at GBT and retained our travel industry pseudonyms when we opened our own travel business in January 2006 - hence "PT Cruises." We each served as Executive Cruise Consultant and Documentation/Operations Manager, while PJ also held the positions of Director of Hosting Services, Reservations Training Manager and National Sales Manager during our years at GBT.
 
American Express acquired Golden Bear in 1999. AMEX eventually closed the office in 2005 and moved the Mariner Club product to their Platinum Travel office in Miramar, FL. The move proved to be serendipitous for us as we did not wish to uproot our families and thus came the happy genesis of PT Cruises. Four years later we are going strong and continue to grow thanks to our loyal satisfied customers (see "Testimonials")
 
We still represent American Express as an independent affiliate of America's Vacation Center/Avoya Travel and as a result can offer great group rates, amenity packages (on board cash, complimentary shore excursions, cocktail parties, etc.) and hosted luxury cruises through the American Express Mariner Club because of this ongoing association. It also gives us the ability to match competitive offers.
 
While cruising is our specialty, it is by no means all that we do. We are a full-service travel agency and have booked just about anything you can think of - trips to China, South America (got to get to Machu Picchu and Iguazu Falls!), a "farm stay" (think Dude Ranch) in Australia, ski trips to Tahoe, honeymoons and much more. We always go the extra mile and our customers will tell you that they are treated like family (or better!). Mission accomplished!
