Creativity is our passion.  Our profession is selling cruises.  When you put cruising and creativity together you get one memorable vacation!  Our desire is to create fun and relaxing vacations where you can bask in the richness of cruising while enjoying your favorite hobby. 

Our cruise agency has over 30 years of experience while we have a lifetime of creative thinking and crafting including scrapbooking, stamping, sewing, interior design and graphic design. In 2006 we created Cruise & Crop. Hop on board one of our scheduled cruises or organize your own special retreat.  We can book individuals and groups alike of any size. Space is limited and prices are subject to change so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.

Gail Pastor has been working with Dream Vacations (a CruiseOne company) for over 30 years.  She was one of the first people to purchase a franchise from CruiseOne, back in 1992.  She loves cruising and has sailed on over 60 cruises during this time.  Gail says, "Helping other people plan a perfect vacation has been almost as much fun as going myself!  I enjoy sharing my expertise and giving you hints of those special places to see in your ports of call." 

Cheri Thomas is Gail's daughter.  "I guess all of that cruising when she was a child got in her blood, too," says Gail.  Cheri started working for CruiseOne in 2006 a few years after she graduated from college.  She is also well traveled and has a passion for detail. You can find Cheri all around Cruise & Crop's Social Media outlets keeping you posted on the latest crafting cruise announcements. 

Gail & Cheri were honored by CruiseOne in 2011 to be chosen their “Franchise of the Year”.  This honor is given each year to the CruiseOne Franchise that exhibits excellent service, sales and an overall well run business plan.   Being the one chosen out of 700 other agents was such an honor. 

In Spring of 2016, they changed the name of their CruiseOne franchise as part of a corporate franchise initiative that is reinvesting in the travel brand’s growth, speaking to all types of vacation experiences, not just cruises. The new name of the travel franchise is Dream Vacations.

Dream Vacations A CruiseOne Company, the nation's leading home-based travel agent franchise, named franchise owners Gail Pastor & Cheri Thomas a member of the 2012 (charter year), 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 “Circle of Excellence,” an elite program that recognizes agents for top sales achievement.

In 2017 we welcomed, Sara Jones on our team. Sara helps with a little bit of everything in the office - from making bookings to mailing out cruise documents. In 2019, Gail decided it was time to "semi-retire." So you may see her on an occasional Cruise & Crop cruise or helping out in the office from time to time. But for the most part - she is enjoying time with her husband, grandkids, and of course traveling often.

Since we all work together as a team, you can feel free to discuss your travel plans with any one of us.
