over 35 years ago. Since then, it has grown into one of the largest and most well respected tour operators for student groups in the country. I am proud of our association with our vendors, attractions, hotels and cruise lines. These relationships allow us to provide you with an outstanding valuable experience, from every aspect. We look forward to servicing your group in the very near future and keeping our tradition of receiving “Straight A’s” from you!!
Christine Benitez, Director of Operations
: Since starting with Straight A Tours, I have had the pleasure of working in several areas within the company. I started out as the administrative assistant to our general manager, and while doing that I also became the land department’s coordinator assisting the consultants with trip details for their school groups. I am currently the Director of Operations, where I still help out everyone as much as possible and maintain the financial records for both Straight A Tours
and Festivals At Sea
. I look forward to hearing from you soon so we can help plan your next trip with ease, so you can just sit back and enjoy your trip
Joanna Puccio Ball, Director of Cruise Operations: I started out in tourism industry when I began my degree at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management and have been in love with the travel industry ever since. I had the privilege of working for Holland America and Princess Cruise Lines in Alaska for a summer. My studies and experience in the industry have brought me here to Festivals at Sea, where I feel very much at home. I am excited to meet you and work with you on making memories that last a lifetime!
