Paul Gauguin Cruises | TN cruise agent


We can help you follow your bliss – in style, without breaking the bank.

Starboard Cafe Cruises is a boutique travel agency based in beautiful Franklin, Tennessee. We are focused on providing free, top-of-the-line customer service to ordinary men, women and families throughout the planning and preparation stages of booking a cruise.

Our value proposition is simple: personalized, down-to-earth service you won’t enjoy at any of the big busy travel agencies or when booking directly with cruise lines.

While larger cruise travel agencies often fail to provide the personalized attention people need to make all the right choices, and the cruise lines themselves have no interest in saving cruisers money, our intentionally small cruise travel agency will leave you feeling confident about your vacation.

Let us handle the legwork, research, and deal-shopping on your behalf. It’s the best way to ensure your cruise vacation lives up to your expectations and goes off without a hitch.

We’ve been in the business since 1989. Over the years, we’ve learned so much about the leading cruise lines, all the options available to cruisers, and how to avoid potential pitfalls along the way. Our job is to share these insights with you so you can have a higher-quality, less stressful, and more affordable cruise vacation.

Modern cruise vacations are complex, and the deals are always changing.

You can use our behind-the-scenes insights to maximize your pleasure and cut the pain out of planning a great cruise vacation. Our client-centered services make all the difference.

If you are interested in learning more – or if you’re ready to start planning your cruise right away – give us a call at (615) 689-5864.

We can also be reached via email. Simply feel out this brief, two-minute form and a real human being with professional cruising experience and insights will get back to you as soon as possible.

Happy Cruising!
