Ocean and River Cruise Specialist
The best travel advice comes from Mark Twain who wrote, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
As a retired professor of Literature and Humanities, I followed Twain’s advice and discovered that the greatest lessons go beyond reading about places in the world to actually exploring and discovering the world through travel. I have traveled extensively throughout the Americas and Europe and I am passionate about sharing my expertise and encouraging my clients to “throw off the bowlines”. Making my home in Florida, I can attest that there are many ships waiting in its harbors and dream vacations across our globe can start from any port or point my clients call home. I am a trained travel professional who will help you and your family to explore, dream, and discover.
My greatest expertise is with ocean and river cruising for couples, families, singles, and the LGBTQ community. I have sailed over 40 cruises with multiple cruise lines to Alaska, Canada, the Caribbean, South America, the Mediterranean, and the Baltic, as well as in the US. Living in Florida, I also focus on family vacations as a Disney Certified Vacation Specialist for Disney Properties and Experiences world-wide with additional training by Universal Theme Parks.
In our technological world, it easy for people to go to a website and book a vacation…but then what? With so many choices, how does one choose? The larger question involved in such a large travel investment would be: “Have you chosen wisely?” Having a travel advisor, saves you time and money with NO service fees. As your agent, I provide personalized attention and I will work as your advocate. I work with all major suppliers maintaining up-to-date information and timely certifications to provide you with the best vacation packages and itineraries. Working together, I can offer the best options that will fit your budget and your travel expectations.
As a travel professional, some of my accomplishments include:
- Cruise Lines International Association Certified Cruise Counsellor
- Disney College of Knowledge Vacation Specialist & Wedding Planner
- Norwegian Cruise Lines – Masters Certified
- Celebrity Cruises 5 Star Academy Certified
- Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines Certified Expert
- Viking River Cruising Specialist
- Personal travel to 4 Continents and 40 US states
- And more!
In my 30 years of professional experience as a professor of Humanities, I have lived, taught, and traveled the globe. I have guided my students from the rain forests of South America to the greatest of museums and castles in Europe and these adventures can also be yours. As your experienced travel agent, you can trust that I focus on every detail to ensure a safe and stress-free dream vacation for all of my clients.
As your personal travel advisor my specialized training and attention to detail will help to assure that vacation planning begins and ends is a safe harbor. When you are ready to throw off the bowlines and Explore, Dream, and Discover, I am only a phone call away.
