Diana Whiteside

Cedar Park, TX

River Cruise, Alaska, and Group Travel Specialist

I am Diana Whiteside, owner of Cruise Holidays of Northwest.

I have been a resident of Austin since we moved her when I was in second grade, so I consider myself a native. After graduating from high school in Austin I went on to Texas A&M and received by Bachelors Degree in Education. I returned to Austin where I became a teacher and raised my family. During that time my family and I cruised often so it didn't take long for me to make a transition to becoming a business owner of a travel agency.

Though we are called Cruise Holidays of Northwest Austin, we plan other land vacations for our clients. Over the past eight years we have planned trips all over the world.

Can vacations be booked online?...Of course, but I take a hands on, personal approach to make sure your vacation is customized to your exact needs. I treat your vacation as if it was my own. I takeaway  all of the frustrations of planning a complicated trip so you can save your energy for your dream trip.

For Instance; when planning a cruise, what about airline reservations, pre and post cruise hotel stay, transfers to the pier, where is the best cabin location for your needs, what's included in the price, will I need forcing currency, what acceptable ID's do I need? The questions are endless and information overwhelming. Fortunately, I am here to help.
