Rochester Hills Business Owner Jill Skrzynski Wins
Cruise Holidays "Golden Anchor” Award


Minneapolis, MN (November 8, 2010) — Cruise Holidays, North America’s oldest cruise-specialty retail franchise, honored Cruise Holidays franchise owner Jill Skrzynski with its most prestigious award, the Golden Anchor, at a special ceremony during the network’s Annual Convention held November 1-6 at El Dorado Royale Resort & Spa in the Riviera Maya, Mexico. Skrzynski is based in Rochester Hills, Michigan.


The Golden Anchor award celebrates the franchise owner that stands out because of the following attributes: They must participate in Cruise Holidays programs, attend Cruise Holidays meetings and conventions, contribute to the success of the network by generating ideas or participating in focus groups, and generally be willing to help other franchise owners reach their goals. In other words, the owner must make significant contributions to helping fellow business owners while still fulfilling his or her original mission – to fulfill their clients’ travel expectations.

"To plan your vacation through Jill is like having a good friend on your side – before, during and after your trip,” said Mark Schiffner, vice president of Cruise Holidays. "She was one of our original home-based Cruise Holidays franchise owners and has quickly built a very positive reputation throughout the Rochester Hills area due to her commitment to customer service,” added Schiffner.


Skrzynski joined Cruise Holidays as a franchise owner in 2004, and she has worked in the travel business for more than 30 years. She has personally sailed on nearly 40 cruises, but also arranges many all-inclusive resort packages for her clients. For more information about her business, she can be contacted at 248.981.2290 or online at
