Praise from Clients to Cruise Lines

“We had a really good experience working with Ellen in planning our son’s
Bar Mitzvah in Costa Rica.

She had lots of great suggestions on how to plan our trip, and was incredibly responsive to our needs – even when we were
actually on our trip and sending her questions via e-mail.

Costa Rica is a really beautiful place, with so much to see and do. We also
had a great experience with the congregation at B’nei Israel. We felt truly
welcomed and embraced — as if we were family.”

Sincerely, Jonathan

Dear Ellen,

I want to thank you for the successful Bar Mitzvah cruise groups that you have entrusted to us here at Royal Caribbean International. We appreciate your knowledge and expertise in providing the detail throughout the planning process for these important events for your clients.

We realize that these joyful and memorable trips require specific experience and understanding of what the needs of the clients are. Additionally, your knowledge of local synagogues in our ports is impressive, and serves your clients well.

Thank you again for your support of the Royal Caribbean product. We look forward to welcoming your groups onboard our ships in the future for many more memorable Bar or Bat Mitzvahs!
Best regards,

Darlene Rosborough
Business Development Manager
Royal Caribbean International

“I told Ellen I wanted a family event for 18 people, ages 12 (Bat Mitzvah girl Hannah) to 76. It had to be close to Hannah’s birthday (mid-winter) and in a warm place. We wanted to focus on family rather than a big affair. We liked the idea of celebrating for a week in a relaxed atmosphere, while maintaining the religious significance. Ellen was so easy to work with at every step.”
Donna, Bat Mitzvah Mom
