I am Barry Russo, affectionately known as "The Cruise Admiral".  In the dictionary they say this about "Admiral":  the title and rank of a senior naval officer, often referred to as a flag officer, who commands a fleet or group of ships of a navy or who holds an important naval post on shore."  MY important post on shore is right here at Clearwater Cruises.  My "command over a fleet or group of ships" is my vast knowledge of most of the major cruise lines in the world.


In 3 short years I will have half a century of cruise experience, I started when I was VERY young and I was hooked on cruising right away. 


My experiences are probably more important to me then they are to you, except for when I can draw on them to help you avoid making an unwise vacation purchase or decision.


Oh, and by the way, like you I have 2 ears and one mouth so I will listen to you twice as much so when you call me to plan that annual cruise, anniversary cruise, family reunion cruise, company reward or meeting cruise, seminar at sea, social group cruise, friends cruise or whatever cruise you are taking, you should plan on doing most of the talking.  After all, how else can I learn from you what you are hoping to do on YOUR cruise.


My areas of expertise and certification are:

  • A.C.C. accredited cruise counselor awarded by CLIA
  • Certified Celebrity Cruises agent award
  • Five Star Holland America Line award
  • Royal Caribbean top agent certification
  • Carnival Cruise Lines, top 1%
  • Princess Cruse Lines, Captains Circle Club

I am constantly seeking new certification, there's strength in knowledge.


"Premium Brands" I represent are, but not limited to:

  • Seven Seas Cruises
  • Oceania Cruise Line
  • Crystal Cruise Lines
  • Seaborne Cruise Lines
  • Cunard
  • Viking River Cruises


 Worldwide destinations I am intimate with are:

Caribbean, Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada / New England, South America, Panama Canal, Mexico (Caribbean and Pacific), Hawaii, Tahiti , South Pacific and Australia / New Zealand, Alaska inside passage, Gulf of Alaska, Canadian Yukon, cruises and tours. Central and Western Europe as well as the Greek Isles and Turkey.

Transatlantic crossings, Repositioning cruises and World Cruises.


So if you are interested in taking a cruise to any of the destinations I have listed on any cruise line, Talk to me.  You'll be glad you did.
