Cruise, Alaska & Hawaii Travel Specialist

To me, there is nothing more exciting than setting off on another adventure on the high seas. Cruising is such a wonderful way to travel, because you get to check into your luxurious stateroom, unpack your bags once, yet experience many different destinations throughout your journey. There's more amenities than you could ever imagine on board the ship, yet you also have the option to explore the ports that are part of your itinerary.

As a cruise specialist, I love to match my clients to the perfect cruise for their interests and desires. My favorite types of cruises to book include:

  • Alaskan Cruises — Personally, I have enjoyed several different Alaskan cruises with various itineraries. This allows me to provide my clients with accurate recommendations for their own Alaskan adventures. I often find myself telling my clients to add on a cruise tour to their Alaskan cruise. The northern wilderness is unimaginably beautiful, and no one ever regrets this additional excursion!
  • Multi-generational Cruises — Cruises are the ideal option for multi-generational families that want to travel together, because there's something for everyone. I am an organized and detail-oriented agent who knows how to coordinate the logistics of these large parties to make it fun, stress-free and memorable for everyone who is traveling together.

I am certified with many of the premier cruise lines, including Princess Cruise Lines and Norwegian Cruise Lines. I also am a graduate of the Disney College of Knowledge, which allows me to plan magical Disney vacations as well as book fantastic Disney Cruise trips. In addition, I am an Alaskan and Hawaiian destination specialist.

I've traveled extensively and enjoyed many unforgettable cruises across the globe, so my clients are frequently asking me what was my best trip ever. My response? It's simple: My best trip is the one that I'm planning next! I am always looking to visit a new destination, try a different cruise ship or experience an itinerary that is exceptionally unique.

Our first trip was a short 3 day cruise from our home port in San Diego to Vancouver BC Canada, second was a 12 day cruise to the British Isles and the last one 8 days Alaska. Reba did a wonderful job for these 3 group sailings. I would recommend her services for any travel needs. The group has returned home from our latest group cruise and can get excited about the next in March 2015, a repo cruise 14 day Tampa to Baltimore. Thanks Reba. Renee D. San Diego, CA Reba has helped my friends and family on a number of occasions. She has been a huge help in organizing my daughter's honeymoon cruise celebration. I highly recommend Reba to all my family and friends! Phil K Santee, CA

It was great working with Reba. She was ontop of getting things done and finding just what we were looking for and in the price range I asked for. I had booked several months prior to our trip to Cancun, MX and she made sure we were well informed once we got there. We were a group of 4 adults and 2 children everything from our flights, resort and car service was all taken care of we even got picked up in a limo! My stepson defenitly wont forget the time he got to ride in a limo for the first time.

Helped make our family vacation a great trip

Reviewed By Kurt - El Cajon, CA | Traveled to
Reba was a great help when planning our family vacation. My in-laws mainly dealt with Reba but when the rest of us had questions, Reba always got back to them very quickly with good information. Reba also handled a lot of little details (i.e. telling Carnival that my son had a birthday while on the cruise) that she did not have to do but she wanted to make sure the trip was the best it could be.

Future cruise

Reviewed By R - San Diego, Ca | Traveled to
I have used Reba Sohn for several cruise group booking in the past several years. We have 2 more cruise vacations on the books with her now. One cruise is set for embarkation this March 15, 2015 and another for March 6 2016. Reba is very good at getting each of the group members questions and needs met when adding them to the group sailing. She spends much extra time and effort answering individual questions. We all love her service for both land and cruise vacations and appreciate her passion to make sure her clients are number 1. Renee Donte

Super Helpful

Reviewed By Super Happy - McMinnville, OR | Traveled to
My wife and I had been planning an Alaska cruise for years. I had done all the research online for the best prices and dates we wanted. I run into Reba one day and just for the fun of it I asked her to see if she could come up with a better price. I was dumbfounded when she came back with a price almost half of what I found and meet all the requirements we were looking for. She was always available to ask questions and willing to help with everything. I can only say I will go back to Reba for all my travel needs.

Yet another great job done by Reba

Reviewed By Frequent Floater Group - San Diego California | Traveled to
This cruise was my groups first experience on Princess Cruise Line. We have had Reba book many sailings for us on Carnival for us in the past and she always did a great job. This time I personally had tons of questions being on a new line to me. Reba made sure each question was answered in a timely manner and took care of special requests I asked of her. It sure makes travel much nicer to have an agent on your side that provides first class service. She goes above for her clients do what it takes to ensure the vacation is the best it can be I often tell people that are afraid to use a agent because "they charge more" that that is incorrect. You get the same price and often a better one as the agent will look for that for you. We already have another group cruise booked for next year as well as Reba is checking on a Alaska sailing for the group to do in 2018. A huge THANKS for another job well done for all of us.

Very Helpful and Efficient

Reviewed By Nanette - Santee, CA | Traveled to
We undertook a very ambitious project planning a family cruise for 21 people from ages 9 months to 60 years. Reba was so organized and followed up promptly with and questions or concerns we had. The trip went smoothly and the recommendations provided were perfect. She planned all our flights, the hotel and the accommodations on the Carnival cruise ship. With members of our family coming from different states and cities it was a challenge, but we all arrived within an hour of each other and were off on our adventure.
