Cruises Inc.® Honors Dix Hills resident Melissa Cohn with OPAL Award for leadership and community service

Dix Hills, N.Y. (March 6, 2020) – The original home-based travel agency Cruises Inc.® celebrates Women’s History Month in March by honoring a female Cruises Inc. vacation specialist with the sixth annual OPAL Award for Women. The company has named Dix Hills resident Melissa Cohn the 2020 recipient of this prestigious award.

The OPAL Award recognizes a female Cruises Inc. travel agent who demonstrates Outstanding Performance And Leadership. The honoree is active in community and civic organizations, is among Cruises Inc.’s top selling agents and has exhibited strong business skills. 

“Year-after-year Melissa continues to inspire me with her innate ability to balance motherhood, a career and community service,” said Debbie Fiorino, chief operating officer of Cruises Inc. “She exemplifies the pillars of what we look for in an OPAL Award honoree and is a role model to all.”   

Cohn is a former Deputy County Attorney who became a travel agent with Cruises Inc. so she could have a flexible career while her son was in pre-school.
