Award-winning safe traveler specialist Captain Mike to shed light on safe cruising post COVID

Leading travel guru and a major franchise owner of Phoenix Cruise Planners, Captain Mike will host live online shows to clear doubts about cruising after the pandemic era.

Phoenix, AZ – May 25, 2021 – Great news for travelers struggling with a bundle of questions about cruising after the current pandemic period. Award-winning safe travel specialist Michael DeVilbiss a.k.a. Captain Mike has announced to host a virtual show to answer questions and doubts about sailing again post COVID. Aptly titled “Is It Safe to Cruise Again”, the virtual event will be a daily live broadcast show that will offer live footage to present a realistic picture of the cruising scenario after the current pandemic phase.

An esteemed travel guru and the 4-time winner of the prestigious “Best of Travel” award, Captain Mike is a leading travel blogger and former hospitality professional, backed by a solid 35 years of experience of serving guests. He has served as a Director of Operations for Las Vegas Hotel/Casino and as a General Manager for Yellowstone Resort and an Orlando Resort before becoming a travel blogger and spearheading a major Phoenix Cruise Planners Franchise in Phoenix Valley.  

“Cruising is still restricted in the US but we are looking forward to the day when the government will lift the restrictions and we would be able to sail out for our much-awaited cruising holidays again. But, we do realize that given the devastating nature of the current pandemic, a lot of travelers are apprehensive about the safety quotient of sailing again in the post COVID-19 era. Put simply, people want no adverse issues when they travel and naturally they have lots of questions about whether to and how to cruise again. In that light, we have started a daily live broadcast virtual show, ‘Is It Safe to Cruise Again’, where we will share and answer questions about almost anything our fellow aspiring cruisers would want to know about sailing after the pandemic times”, stated Captain Mike.

“I want to answer their questions, questions everybody has regarding what has changed- the same questions I have.”

Captain Mike forayed in the travel scene with his own travel agency “Capt’n  Mike’s” in 2011 in Phoenix Valley, the hub of fastest rising travel companies in the USA. Although the venture started as an independent travel company yet quickly signed up with multiple affiliates in Texas and New Mexico. Shortly after, Captain Mike teamed up with Cruise Planners, a leading American Express Travel Representative. Presently, his company is named as “Cruise Planners – Capt’n  Mike’s”.

Per his statements, “Is It Safe To Travel” series is aimed to help show others it’s safe to travel post pandemic, provided one signs up with the right travel/cruising partner. The show will broadcast live and recorded  interviews with cruise staff, guests, and will also stream live events from the ship to present  a realistic picture of the current cruise scenario. 

“We could have written a blog post or article about it but we have decided to go virtual this time because people need to see what’s actually happening in our cruise scene, not just hear or read about it. Thus, we will broadcast live interviews and events straight from the ship so that travelers get a genuine idea of the situation of cruising in the near future which would eventually help them to take an informed decision.” 

Speaking on, Captain Mike mentioned their upcoming cruising itinerary come June, with Cruise Planners’ one of the most leading cruises namely, Royal Caribbean. The ship has already traveled with over 400,000 passengers across Singapore and continues to lead the industry in health and safety protocols to ensure the safest cruising experience. The June voyage will mark the first sailing cruise from North America since the pandemic began in March 2020.   

Cruise Planners and Capt’n Mike’s are a full-service travel management company, providing an array of travel-related services to ensure comprehensive assistance for guests. From booking leisure/vacation travel to arranging all-inclusive’s to cruising to resort and theme park packages – the company offers all. They also serve as a full–service cruise entertainment event management company.
