About Cruise Holidays and Comfort Tours

Our 35th Anniversary in Business... 
is similar to watching your kids grow.  Where does the time go?  
One day you have a baby and it seems like the next day your child is a 30 year old adult.

On June 6, 1988, we cruised on the SS Norway with a sports theme with our close friends, Donna and Steve Young, and Kit and Mike Mair. We had the time of our lives and we determined that this was the business we should embark on! With Mimi's background in retail from working at the Jones Store, and Mark's background on the wholesale side, working for Armstrong Carpet and Sealy Mattress, we felt that those two complimentary skill sets would help us succeed. We loved the fact that the cruise lines held all of the inventory and that their wasn't the issue of trying to collect payments from clients.  We thought this would be a wonderful small business for us to eventually run together.  We opened our doors on November 14, 1988 with a location of about 600 square feet in an office building in Gladstone, MO.  We were blessed to have Jackie Harrison join our team early on who helped us grow our business. Mark joined Cruise Holidays in 1991 full time and we then moved into our current location in December of 1995. In 1996 we decided to open a full service agency Comfort Tours and Travel, to serve the needs of our clients that wanted to take a land vacation.   

We've weathered many storms throughout our career from September 11  to the economy faltering in 2008-2010 but the perseverance of our team and God's grace we not only survived but flourished.  

As owners of Cruise Holidays and Comfort Tours, Mimi and I sincerely want to thank you for your business and your referrals.  You, our valued clients, are the reason we are in business.  We always believed, and have never changed our belief that THE CUSTOMER (YOU) ARE KING & QUEEN!

What a joy it is to help you plan your dream vacations.  Our mission statement says “WE CREATE MEMORIES THAT LAST A LIFETIME.”  We all live daily with this mission and are honored that you have selected us to help you with your vacation planning.

Mimi and I are also like proud parents, we are so very proud of our incredible staff.  We believe that we have the most knowledgeable, caring, and professional staff in America.  They are trained to help you plan any kind of vacation that you might desire including ocean cruises, river cruises, all inclusive vacations and customized land tours worldwide. 

Again, thank you for your business and referrals.  We look to help you create many more memories that last a lifetime.
