About Dean Barreca

Dean Barreca on CTVDean Barreca has had the pleasure to accomplish many life experiences from trumpet player, missionary, producer of musicals and business entrepreneur. In all these, travel played an integral part.

Having decided that he needed more “fun” in life, he gave up his business in 2006 joined a cruise travel agency as a full time independent consultant and zero clients. In 2007, he organized and escorted his first large group of seniors on a seven day cruise. In 2009, he received his Master Cruise Counselor accreditation and has since helped hundreds of clients residing in both Canada and the USA.

Dean currently resides in Cambridge, Ontario along with his lovely wife, Olga and dog “Milo”. When Dean is not at sea, he’s usually out playing golf in summer, taking Milo out for walks or sipping his favorite glass of red wine over a fine Italian meal with friends and family.

You’d think the highlight of a Mediterranean cruise would be the glorious sights — well they were something to behold along with the comforts of the lovely ladyship Noordam, but a very close second was the great hospitality and attention to detail of the cruise consultant, Dean Barreca. Dean has the 'know- what-to-sweat' instincts that make travel for his clients very carefree. Dean, we loved cruising with you. You are made for this job, unflappable, calm in a storm! And really, there was nothing to sweat, he made sure of that. Where you go, we go! Thank you Dean!" Anne and Gord - Kitchener, ON
