Redington Shores, FL – Travel Weekly is proud to announce that professional travel advisor Marilyn Burrows is selected to participate in the STAR (Select Travel Advisor Recognition) Program during its annual CruiseWorld event. STAR participants must meet strict qualifying criteria and demonstrate what it means to be a qualified professional in the travel industry.
CruiseWorld brings together approximately 800 travel industry professionals to participate in certification programs, hear from c-level industry executives, and partake in immersive educational and networking experiences. The STAR Program works to curate a group of the industry’s most dedicated and professional travel advisors through an application and review process that involves reference checks and an evaluation of current business practices.
“I’m very excited to be selected for the STAR program and to re-engage with Industry experts,” says Burrows who owns Your Dream Travels located in Redington Shores. “I have high expectations for the event and the resurgence of the travel industry after a tough year due to COVID. It’s wonderful to be able to fulfill my client’s dreams of travel again.”
While attending CruiseWorld, Burrows will hear keynote addresses on the state of the industry from top industry executives, learn about destinations, products, and new protocols. She will also be meeting with supplier partners and connect with high-level travel company personnel.
All of these valuable experiences combine to arm STAR advisors with the knowledge and tools they need to navigate the post-COVID world and provide the best service for their clients.

We have heard countless stories about their perseverance, dedication, and determination throughout the past year,” said Alicia Evanko-Lewis, Executive Vice President, Travel Group Global Events, Northstar Travel Group. “The team vets all applicants to ensure all STAR participants are serious about their business and giving their clients the best possible service.
