Cruises - Alaska

Alaska may be the last frontier, but should certainly be a first choice for cruising. An Alaska cruise provides the traveler with non-stop beauty and wonder. The beauty of the glaciers, the amazing wildlife and the brisk climate all combine to create a fabulous vacation. My preference is to cruise ...

Family Walt Disney World Trip

Good Afternoon Elaine! Spent our wonderful vacation in Disney World last week and just wanted to tell you... You did an outstanding job setting it up. One of the best family vacations we have had. Great experience overall. Everything you planned was perfect. The magic express, the reservations, the adjoining rooms, the meal plan, the express back to the airport. Everything went exceedingly smooth. Thank you so very, very much! Mark

Grand tour of Europe or perhaps South Pacific trip

Always helpful and please responses. Been in some difficult situations and she bailed me out - time and time again. Gives the extra time and work to find the better schedule, route and combination of travel support. Plus she provides fantastics on things to visit and experience.

In my opinion, she is the go to gal!

Retirement/birthday

This was a lengthy, detail oriented, coordinated trip. Elaine booked our flight & an overnight stay to Hawaii, helping us acclimate to the time change. She then booked us to Sydney for overnight, next day flew to Auckland, NZ. After 2 nights there we boarded a ship bound for Australia. After the cruise we flew back to Hawaii for overnight and the last leg back to Texas.
She made all hotel arrangements making sure the hotel was within walking distance to attractions. She coordinated the transfers from airport to hotel to cruise terminal.
She even notified the ship of my birthday. Once in my life I was able to celebrate two bdays in one year because of crossing the intn'l date line.
Trip of a lifetime...thanks to Elaine, couldn't have done it without you.

We found Elaine, no more searching for an agent.!

Elaine was referred to me by a friend who raved about her great service. Her recommendation was spot on. We have used her for four cruises and she has provided all the information required to make a informed choice that best suited us. She is friendly and makes you comfortable with your choices while maintaining a professional environment. For each cruise she has provided several options without overwhelming with choices and decisions. She has always gotten us the best price and an a occasional perk which we were not expecting. She is a great comminucator always taking our calls if possible. If she is busy, she with get back to us within a few hours.

I would recommend her to anyone who desires fast professional service with a can do attitude.
