Expedition Cruising in Antarctica
Expedition Cruising in Antarctica

For many people, their passion for cruising develops over time as they embark on one voyage after another. For me, my passion for cruising began when I lived and worked aboard many of the Royal Caribbean cruise ships. While it sounds like a permanent vacation, the work could be challenging and tiring at times. However, I loved the fact that cruising allowed me to explore the world while earning a living.

After discovering a shipboard romance, I knew that my time at sea was coming to an end. Rather than accepting cruising was a chapter in my past, I decided to pursue a career as a travel agent who specializes in cruises.  I am the best travel agent to book your next cruise because:

  • I have an intimate knowledge of the cruising industry that many other travel agents lack. My time working aboard cruise ships has allowed me to understand how to make the most of your time while you are on vacation.
  • I am able to work with those who are new to cruising as well as those who are experienced cruisers. Ultimately, I strive to help my clients navigate the waters of the cruising industry. There are so many options, and I like to find the best ship and itinerary for your personal needs.

While there's no such thing as a bad cruise, I do love to recommend expedition cruises. These cruises sail to exotic destinations and allow people to experience unique and authentic adventures.

For example, you may sail to the Galapagos Islands and swim with the sea lions there, or you may board a ship that's heading to the Arctic or Antarctica, where you can see polar bears and penguins in their natural habitats.

When you set sail with me, the possibilities are endless. Contact me today to book your next cruise.

What my clients have to say:

Emma makes travel planning so easy! Her response time is quick, she offers options, and is quick to make requested changes. She keeps in touch to be sure we are on track with our planning. I have referred her to many friends and family.


Emma is very personable, enthusiastic, caring and professional. Could not be happier! This was our most major trip yet so it was important for us to get it right. We feel like we know Emma just through this booking. Highest praise for her!

Amazing trip!

Reviewed By Penny - San Antonio | Traveled to Europe
Emma is wonderful and so easy to work with! She is very responsive to our needs and always has great advice or suggestions for our trips we would never have thought of on our own. We have worked with her for many years and she knows our travel style, where we have been and where we still would like to visit. Having an agent who knows us so well makes the planning process easy, and she will share any cruise itinerary with us she knows we will be interested in without any pressure. We have recommended her to all of our friends and family who feel the same way.

From newbies to seasoned cruisers in a year!

Reviewed By Eileen F. - Haverstraw, NY | Traveled to Caribbean
Emma Cakmak has been our go-to travel advisor for many years now. She has planned multiple trips for us, from European tours to Caribbean cruises, as well as anniversary and retirement trips. Emma is adept at getting to know our preferences and, with her help, we have been building a travel "bucket list." When we had to cancel a trip at the last minute for a medical issue, Emma assisted us in providing all the information we needed to properly access our travel insurance. We appreciate her quick response time to inquiries and the way she touches base before and after trips, always valuing our feedback. In one case, she shared our poor experience with a particular tour company, which led to a partial refund and apology from the company. The personal attention we receive from Emma is unparalleled, and we recommend her services without hesitation. Just be careful - our wanderlust and her swift responses and ability to find great deals have led to four trips in less than a year!
