March 19, 2018, Coppell, TX - Cruise Planners Coppell is proud to announce and welcome two new travel associates, Becky Barnes and Kari Williams.

Becky Barnes, joined the Cruise Planners team in May 2017 and has been an independent graphic designer for the past 10 years. She and her family are twelve-year residents of Coppell, and Becky’s primary volunteer role is serving as Choir Booster Co-President at Coppell High School where her son is a junior.

Royal Caribbean (RCCL) has certified Becky with a “Bachelors of Adventure”. She’s also working toward her “Masters” with RCCL and certification with Holland America Line. Becky’s background in marketing and design drive her to promote travel in creative and interesting ways, and she loves the opportunity to assist clients in planning the vacations of their dreams – land or sea.

Cruise Planners Coppell welcomed Kari Williams to the team in September 2017. Her desire is to bring families together through travel to create memory bookends. Serving as the agency’s Disney specialist, she’s had nearly 20-years of experience booking Disney World and Disney Land, so it’s no surprise she, her husband and their son LOVE all things Disney. Kari is also pursuing her certification as a honeymoon and destination wedding specialist. 

Our trailblazing original associate Janet West is entering her third year with the company. Having been involved for many years with the Spina Bifida Association of North Texas, it was an easy choice to become an SNG Certified Accessible Travel Advocate.  Additionally, she is a certified agent for American Queen Steamboat Company, an American Cruise Lines Certified Agent and a Hawaii Destination Specialist.  And, as a “foodie” she just might have an amazing restaurant recommendation wherever you may travel.

A Coppell resident for over 11 years, Janet volunteers at church and with the Cottonwood Creek PTO where her daughter attends.  Her corporate background in healthcare and marketing gave her extensive experience in all types of events.

With more than 30 years of travel industry experience, Brett Schneider and Nichole Bentley launched their local full-service travel agency in Coppell 3 years ago.  Part of an exclusive American Express Travel Network, Cruise Planners franchises offer land and cruise travel worldwide and have access to exclusive perks and amenities through a vetted network of travel providers.
