Since starting Starboard Speakers, Miranda has found me the best speaking engagements I’ve had in 15 years of onboard lecturing. She’s found me great opportunities with the best cruise lines in the business, to some of the most beautiful places in the world. She works fast, so make sure you’ve got your passport and packing list handy at all times!

Reba Merrill 
Special Interest Speaker   

"Having worked with Miranda Cook for years I would say that if this were a standard job recommendation for Miranda I would use phrases like honest, good mind for details, people oriented, and dependable,
and they are all true. She is always helpful, keeps you informed and works really hard to get you the
cruises you desire. Perhaps the easiest thing is to simply say she is good-people who cares."

Bill Fawcett

"Miranda nurtures her clients, giving us a wide range of constantly expanding opportunities on fine cruise lines.
She is easy to contact with any questions, and has created a supportive community for her speakers.
I am delighted to be on her roster."
