Testimonials do our hearts good. Feedback from clients makes it worthwhile.

We work hard to get our clients up to speed on how to successfully apply to the cruise ship speaker agencies. We offer our series and “intellectual property” for the give-away price of $200. But we continue to take an interest in our graduates. MANY have gone on to land many free cruises.

Some have done up to four a year! Personally, I only want to do two. But when a student sets a goal to be a speaker, it’s hard work. Getting the proper topics and honing your speaking skills takes time. AND the hours/days developing the actual talk. Some graduates do nothing; we don’t give diplomas and the class will not get you a raise at the bus company. They just fade away. Sad.

One of our stellar graduates is Fred Reggie. We worked with him – it was easy as he was open-minded to apply what we were telling him to do.  He originally wanted to give talks on Mardi Gras.  We felt this was too narrow a topic and would not apply worldwide.  He knew his stuff and was deeply involved in putting on the New Orleans Mardi Gras.

But do people really want four talks on that?  I suggested maybe a theme of festivals world-wide.  There are a lot of them and that would work anywhere.

A successful presenter on many ships – Fred Reggie

After spinning our fidget a while, I learned that he knows a LOT about famous crimes and the trials that followed the arrest. Wow – what a winner. He’s now carved out a niche that ships love. He’s filling up his day-timer with trips. FREE for him and his wife.

He recently sent us this testimonial. We’re proud to share it.  Thanks Fred. Join the team of SpeakOnCruises graduates. Hit the high seas.

And a message to our other graduates: jump into the pool. There are a lot of openings – Europe, Caribbean, Australasia and points north.

How to get FREE excursions on Cruise ships | No guarantees

If you are on a voyage, you will experience the opportunity to take tours in the ports you are landing at. That’s why people go on cruises. Yes, the food is good, the on-board activities keep you busy, the shows are entertaining and the swimming pools are wet. But you go for the tours.

Rain forest

Take the Rain Forest tour – Maybe for FREE

Passengers can pay good money to take local tours. We’re talking anywhere from $25 for a walking tour of an old village, to maybe $125 for a bus to a castle, to thousands for a flight to an archaeological site or glacier. Besides the cost of the ride on the boat, bills for excursions can run near $1,000 per person.

We’ve been on cruises and there is a way to actually get to go on a tour for free. How to do it? Well, first you have to be a lecturer. We’ve been sailing and speaking for nearly ten years. We figured out the game.

We can show you how you could easily save the $1,000 the guy who rooms next door to you pays. Really. Take our class. Become a cruise ship speaker. See the HIREUS page.

Knowledge is good. We want to share and do a Vulcan Mind Meld with you. We open the kimono and don’t hold back.

Just do it!!! You won’t get wet until you jump into the pool.

Practice your talks over and over – rehearse to feel comfortable

Look like professional speaker

We are here to help you get speaking assignments on cruise ships. What to do in the meantime?  Get a few talks written.  Then rehearse in front of your dog.  Not just by yourself. When you feel you have it down pat — don’t memorize anything – you should KNOW it and just talk to your dog as if it were a casual conversation. 

Read more on practicing

Next – get a live audience.  Service clubs LOVE noon speakers. Contact their programs person.  You’ll get real practice and a free rubber chicken lunch!
