What can I say about Arthur except he’s the best? Through the years “The Art of Cruising” has booked over 20 trips for me and has handled every detail in an impeccable manner only he possesses. Prior to my relationship with Arthur I used other travel agents who couldn’t hold a candle to his uncanny ability to get the best deals from the best companies.
He’s an expert at individual travel plans and for group travel. Need a river cruise for a group of 4 friends? What about a romantic birthday cruise to Tahiti with your husband? Or say a 60th birthday party cruise to Greece with your 2 best friends? Along with that birthday party how about a 2 week extension in Italy with a private driver? Do you need to reward your top 20 clients with a weekend cruise to Mexico including excursions and private buses? Then Arthur Fessenden is who you should call!!! He has the expertise as well as the contacts to make all of this happen flawlessly while adhering to your budget needs, attending to every detail, and managing to get extras you wouldn’t expect, nor receive, from other agents.
Perhaps the nicest thing I can say about Arthur is that I consider him a friend as well. He has an infectious laugh and a true desire to give his clients the trip of a lifetime, and there’s no doubt he’ll work tirelessly to ensure you’re not disappointed. Give him a call today – you won’t be sorry!!

The ART OF CRUISING is the BEST: experienced, professional, and reliable. Every aspect of each trip was seamless. They made all of the arrangements, guided me through various options and always focused on my personal preferences. Arthur, of the ART OF CRUISING, has been my travel agent for over 35 years including ocean cruises, river cruises and land tours.Some trips were with the entire family, some with my son and daughter- in- law, and some alone.Each trip was unique and became a memory of a lifetime. Arthur has always been so personable and helpful! His tips and suggestions not found in brochures were great.I have always had confidence in him and without exception, every trip has been a delight .

“My husband and I started using Arthur when he owned Travel Made Easy. He has been our agent exclusively for roughly 20 years, and we cannot imagine using anyone else’s services. His knowledge and experience are immeasurable since he has personally traveled so extensively; everything is firsthand! We just returned from an Alaskan cruise, and Arthur made the entire experience one that will not be forgotten. Arthur has the unique ability to custom design each and every cruise that he arranges; he not only met our expectations, but he far surpassed them. Arthur really knows how to take care of the clients’ needs. Tom and I just rely on him for everything when it comes to our vacations. It’s so easy and he’s such a joy to deal with! We have become friends with Arthur over the years. He has ALWAYS treated us as if we were family when it comes to planning any vacation.”

“We just went on a cruise to the Panama Canal, and my wife and I could not have had a more enjoyable and hassle-free vacation. The Art of Cruising is a full service cruise only travel agency, therefore they can answer any question that arises. With the extensive experience that its staff has, including the individual expertise of Arthur, we have been loyal customers for many years. Since Arthur has so much travel experience, he is able to personally advise us on what to see and what to avoid in each and every port of call that we have visited. The entire staff makes you feel like you are their one and only client – that’s what we like. We’ll never use anyone else.”

“My wife and I have had the opportunity to take many cruises, and we could not imagine anyone putting together our trip than Arthur and The Art of Cruising. I must say that it really helps talking to an agent who has been to as many countries that Arthur has been to – he knows the out-of-the-way places to go that not too many people are privy to. The professional way the agents treat you is exemplary. They strive to make you feel very special and you’re not just another number. Since cruising is the only way we like to travel with our entire family, it’s nice to now that there is an agent who has not only the knowledge but specializes in cruising. He’s been our agent for over 15 years and we will never change!!!”
