Favorite Destinations Zoe’s passion and interest in both wildlife and the environment have led her to Alaska for the last 40 summers. Cruises to Alaska began in 1979 with Sitmar Cruise Lines’ Fairsea. Exploring the cultures and the history of South America, as well as Eastern and Western Europe, are also of keen interest.
Years With Zoe's Cruises While opening Zoe’s Cruises as an “avocation” in 1983, Zoe found the response of passengers to a unique business model focused on providing passengers more benefits in 1982 which is still practiced today, to be too successful! Zoe left what had been her “real world” professionally in Earth Sciences in 1990 to devote full time to Zoe’s Cruises passengers. Zoe’s Cruises is entering its 37th year of commitment toward offering a personal quality cruise experience for passengers ― just as it did in 1982.
Community Involvement Zoe has had a lifelong involvement in animal welfare through volunteer work in the community, 9 years of service on the Sacramento SPCA Board of Directors, both as Board Member and President, and with the formation of the McCrea 2000 Trust. The McCrea 2000 Trust annually funds grants to a variety of local, regional, national and international Animal Welfare Organizations.
