In 2000 he attended the University of Miami to complete his study as a Master Cruise Counsellor.
Dean established Dean's Cruise and Travel in 1993. In 2002 the company enhanced its service portfolio and was re-named USA Cruise Groups. Its emphasis remains on Pacific Coast cruises but also combines air and land packages to enhance the ocean voyages.
USA Cruise Groups specializes in “repositioning” cruises - sometimes known as the “Las Vegas” cruises. During May, ships that have been cruising the Caribbean all winter travel up the West Coast to spend the summer on the Alaska routes. In October, they return or “reposition” to the Caribbean.
As they travel up or down the West Coast, the ships take on passengers and offer a variety of 3-day trips to Pacific port cities such as San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Vancouver. It's an ideal opportunity to combine an ocean cruise with visits to exciting tourist destinations like Sea World, Disneyland, Fisherman's Wharf, the Space Needle, or Canada.
Whether it's a 3-day trip or week-long, multi-port voyage, these cruises offer a wonderful value for first-time and experienced cruisers alike. Hundreds of satisfied travelers have taken these trips, and it's no wonder! They're the least expensive trips available.
Whether you want to dance, party all night, study sea and animal life, relax, or enjoy friends and family, USA Cruise Groups will arrange and coordinate all aspects of your special cruise experience at an economical price. More importantly, your trip will be personally managed by a Master Cruise Counsellor - Dean Fisher himself.
USA Cruise Groups is known for prompt service, meticulous follow-up and direct personal contact. For reservations or information, call: 206-956-9222.
