"I love being a PVP because I am able to create relationships with like-minded people who enjoy cruising as much as I do. Through the years I have cultivated relationships with cruise families while working for Carnival Cruise Line.  Not only do I get to book my guests; I book their children, as well as their parents not to mention all their friends and cruise buddies. This is an amazing career where you are able to make dreams come true for your guests plus also get them the best value for their vacation. Best career ever!!"

Lorelei Elite Personal Vacation Planner

"One of the main reasons I love being a PVP is because you feel like you are a part of a family. Even though we work in a highly competitive sales environment, you always feel like your fellow teammates are rooting for you; in fact they are the first ones to congratulate you on reaching your goals and surpassing the biggest sales milestones."
