European Ocean and River Cruise Specialist
I am a retired IT consultant turning my many years of travel into helping others find their dream vacation. As a consultant I had the opportunity to travel the world but I am especially fond of Europe and their waterways. I have been on both ocean and river cruises through Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Poland, The Czech Republic, and Italy. I have travelled through Italy quite a lot visiting cities such as Venice, Florence, Rome, Siena, Montepulciano and all over Sicily. Most of my cruise experience has been on Viking and I am a Viking Cruise Line Specialist.
I have also made extensive travels in the Caribbean. Some of my favorite destinations there are: St. John, St. Thomas, Puerto Rico, Grand Turk, Cancun Mexico, Punta Cana, St. Croix, Sint Marteen, Martinique, St. Vincent, Grenada, Barbados, Dominica, Antigua, and St. Kitts. I have experienced the islands on a Holland America and Celebrity cruise. I have also visited most of the Hawaiian Islands multiple times (Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and Hawaii)
I have future plans in 2019 to visit Sicily and Switzerland. In 2020 I will be taking another Viking cruise through France visiting Paris and Normandy regions.
