Elizabeth (Beth) Cardinal, Independent Cruise Specialist

My love for travel started in my late teens when I traveled to Montreal and spent time at the Expo 67 site. Once I got the travel bug there was no holding me back and I traveled as much as I could from that point on.
I was late entering the travel business as I had a long career with Maritime Tel & Tel/Aliant in their IT division. I retired in 2003 as a Project Manager. In 2005 a chance meeting with the owner of Cruise Holidays in Bedford, Nova Scotia enticed me back into the work force in a business that I had a passion for. After the Cruise Holidays in Bedford closed their door in June 2014, I made the transition to work as a home-based independent agent with Cruise Holidays of Oakville.
