All About Cruise by Mandy


Cruise by Mandy began when Mandy took her very first cruise in 2000--and fell in love! Since then, her passion for travel at sea has taken her career to new horizons. As a worldwide traveler, Mandy is more than qualified to speak on a number of locations throughout the oceans. Some of her favorite locations include summers in Japan, the waters of Cape Horn, and Český Krumlov, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This expansive firsthand experience and knowledge are unrivaled in the industry! Her favorite part of being a travel agent is helping others get the most per mile out of their travel, both with pricing and experiences. Her compassion and commitment to creating lifelong client relationships mean she treats every trip and finances as if they were her own. She looks forward to a long future of serving clients in the cruise industry, fulfilling dreams, and putting a smile on each and every client’s face with memories to last a lifetime.

Meet Mandy, Our Cruise Expert

Meet Mandy

With a heart for education and the spirit of a world traveler, Mandy Goddard has been committed to the art of cruising for over twenty years. After her first cruise, she saw the potential in all that they could be--more than just a cruise! They’re avenues to volunteer for those who love to give back, they’re classrooms to engage with the world as your teacher, and they’re venues for two people ready to become one. In fact, that’s exactly what Mandy and her husband Curt did in 2003! With their toes in the sand on St. John in the Caribbean sea, they tied the knot and committed to their forever travel partner. Together, they share two beautiful daughters who have inherited their parents’ travel bug; they already have over 200+ nights of cruising to give their mom notes on cruising as kids, pre-teens, and now teens. 


Taking notes from kids is a bit of a role reversal for Mandy, who’s used to giving the notes as a former teacher. With a background in education, including a degree in Mathematics, and experience in teaching levels from sixth grade to junior college, she’s used to breaking down big concepts and making things much more manageable. This is an invaluable skill in travel planning, which she was also able to hone in project management in the airline industry. An impressive career background, a zest for life, and a keen eye are all the key ingredients that make Cruise by Mandy the premier agency to turn to when you’re ready to set sail!
