Cruiseland USA has been helping travelers with cruises since it was founded in 1989. President Eppie Epstein also known as the "Would-be-Traveler" has been producing and hosting a Travel Talk Radio Show in Southern California called the "Cruise Club" since 1985. While his radio show went through a variety of changes, it was still the same motivation - to inspire people to plan ahead to get the best deal on cruises and other vacations. In the early days, a large portion of the show was spent dispelling the myth that cruising was basically for the old and very rich. The myth became history... cruising has become the vacation of choice by all classes of people, from singles to young families to retirees.
Eppie, as most everyone knows him, has been responsible for some major marketing innovations in the travel industry including the creation of his radio show. He also co-authored a travel book titled, "Cruise Secrets Exposed". Mr. Epstein began his travel career promoting "theme" cruises which attract special interest groups such as soap opera fans, who can rub elbows with their favorite stars. Then he packaged seminar groups aboard cruise ships with famous personalities. Eppie once featured a top morning drive radio personality broadcasting live ship-to-shore during a week-long cruise.
In 1989 CRUISELAND USA was opened in Los Angeles and Incorporated in the State of California in 1991. As a Cruise and Tour Agency it attained National Account Status with most Major Cruise Lines. Over the past several years, Mr. Epstein has also been consulting some of the country’s leading independent agencies, and was commissioned to create by several Vacation Destinations, Tour Operators and Cruise Lines some new and innovating concepts. Specially packaged affinity Tours & Cruises are being created in cooperation with Nationally Certified Organizations. Other groups are going to be performance level competition vacations in fitness, sports, games and the performing arts.
For 2016, Mr. Epstein intends to continue to move CRUISELAND USA Inc. into the forefront of the new digital economy. Utilizing the newest of technologies, we will continue to use much of the same creative dynamics from our successful history to make CRUISELAND USA a leader in Cruise and Tour Affinity Groups. In cooperation with several national, state and local organization, CRUISELAND is about to enter another decade of innovation.
While the Travel Industry and the National & Worldwide economy are struggling to recover from unfortunate times, we plan to do what we do best, as we all will and have in the past, in the greatest country in history. CRUISELAND USA Inc. is proud to be American and we said that over 20 years ago when we created the name of our company.
