Cassandra Mellick – Graduate of Tourism – Travel Program


My dream job is to become a travel agent. I really want to specialize in cruising and help families, adults and kids find the best cruise For their money and for their experience Something I’m really working towards right now. Originally, I worked on cruise ships for two years with Carnival Cruise Lines. I came home and I just decided that travelling is really what I want to do. So, I decided to take the program and see where it takes me. The program focuses mainly on, tourism and hospitality as well as travel. So it prepares you for: if you want to be working as a travel agent. If you want to work in a hotel industry or even if you want to work like right now I work for conference services. So if you want to do something like that, like event planning or something It really helps with preparing you for the kind of professional careers We cruised on the MSC Seaside and we flew to Miami out of Toronto And it took us to San Juan, Puerto Rico St. Maarten Nassau, Bahamas and St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands There was one day that we did have a whole day with our professors. We did an excursion and it was kind of behind the scenes on the ship So it’s kind of cool. but it was mostly either beach, you set out by the pool or you enjoyed your night out with dinner with everyone as a group. Then you went out and kind of found like a theme for the night or something like that. I like experiencing different cruise lines and I like experiencing different ships because it’s something that’s important as a future travel agent. To be able to know what audience each cruise line will target or each port or activities.
