Diane and Arnie Ross met through a matchmaker and bonded instantly over their love of travel. They were married 7 months later and planned their first trip together- a week in Nice and Eze in the south of France followed by a Windstar cruise through the French and Italian Riviera. Twenty-one years later, their travels have taken them on more than 30 cruises and throughout the world. Their favorite domestic destination is Santa Fe and international highlights include Bora Bora, Barcelona, and Shanghai.
In 1992, Diane became a travel agent to help others construct their perfect vacations. She became a CTC (certified Travel Counselor) and MCC (Master Cruise Counselor) in her quest to be the best and learn as much as possible to create dream vacations for her clients.
The Certified Travel Counselor designation is conferred by The Travel Institute upon travel professionals who complete an advanced certification program, demonstrate extensive industry knowledge and experience, and exemplify the highest standards of professionalism.
MCC, Master Cruise Counselor, is a designation reserved for travel agents who have completed a rigorous program with CLIA (Cruise Line International Association). This includes demonstrating proficiency at recommending and selling cruises through seminars and exams, ship inspections, and personal cruise experiences.
Today Diane and Arnie are working together to plan vacations for honeymooners through retirement “trips of a lifetime”. So whether you’re travelling to Boston or Bora Bora, we’ll make your trip as easy and pleasant as possible. Through our association with Montrose Travel we are able to obtain great rates and give a high level of service.

We can't thank you enough for everything you put together for our Cancun trip. The time we had together was absolutely priceless - the weather was stunning, the food was delicious, the people were so warm and welcoming, and the hotel was marvelous. We would have never even thought of going to Secrets - SilverSands if it weren't for you, so we really do owe you a huge thank you. Wanted to thank you as well for the directions at the Cancun Airport. Mary and I thought it was going to be worse than it was, but the advice really helped (avoiding all people who wanted to take your luggage for you, cab rides, etc) We are definitely looking to do something next summer as well so we will be coming back to you and your agency again. Thanks again, DIane...we absolutely loved it! Jeff and MaryJeff and Mary Kingsbridge Travel
Diane Ross is an exceptional travel agent. Her attention to detail and to finding the best price for your trip is incomparable. Last summer she booked a Greek Isles cruise for my husband and me, which we had to cancel. Diane had found low-cost travel insurance for us, and we were reimbursed every penny within a couple of weeks. She has rebooked a cruise for us this summer, and before paying our final balance she found a way to save us $3600 Ã¢â?¬â?? more than half of what we were originally going to pay Ã¢â?¬â?? for the same level of accommodations! Diane also offers great travel tips and suggestions for saving time and money (such as how to get through Customs faster). I highly recommend Diane for all of your travel needsÃ¢â?¬Â¦you canÃ¢â?¬â?¢t do better than booking through Diane! Gail Abrams, Highland, CAGail Abrams Kingsbridge Travel
Our travel agent, Diane Ross, planned a trip-of-a-lifetime for us. We wanted to cruise, but also to tour. Because Mom is 88, navigating around a large ship would have been too strenuous. A river cruise was the answer! Diane had so much knowledge about various lines, and was able to narrow down the selection for us. An elegant environment was important to us, as well as cuisine. She found an ideal itinerary (on the Avalon Creativity) and knew which cabins were the most spacious and well-located. The ship's staff knowledge of the (60th) birthday made the celebration more memorable (which Diane facilitated). She inquired about our interests to enhance our enjoyment of the trip. As a result, while docked in Paris, she arranged a Walking Tour of chocolate boutiques for us! In addition to her professionalism, Diane's depth of travelling experience allows her to recommend and implement trips for clients on every scale, from a local getaway to an around-the-world voyage. I can't recommend her services highly enough.Ilyse
Many thanks to Diane for the extra efforts she put into our amazing New Zealand and Australia bucket list trip... from assuring we had the best cabin we could afford and wonderful accommodations along the way to all her little hints - we'll never book another trip without herMichelle S
