Visiting the Home of My Ancestors

One of the highlights of my travels has been visiting the home of my ancestors in Germany -- some came from the north (near Berlin) others came from the south (near Munchen/Munich).

What a thrill to get off the ship in the port of Rostock and travel about 145 miles to reach the capital... Read more from my Visiting the Home of My Ancestors story.

What a cruise!

Reviewed By Happy Traveler - Houston, Tx | Traveled to Buenos Aires ~ Argentina ~ South America
I have been working with Karl for several years now. He has researched options and provided the best value for the price on cruises I have taken. He is a dedicated travel agent, willing to consider multiple options to give his clients the best experience. Since he has experience traveling, he has many suggestions that helped me make my decisions. He has never let me down.

Alluring vacation

Reviewed By Lee - Houston TX | Traveled to Caribbean
Karl was up-to-date on everything, including Covid regulations and accessible options for our cruise on Allure of the Seas. He secured an early boarding time for us and assisted us in booking shore excursions. The trip was very relaxing and I didn't have to worry about a thing as he coordinated all the details with me. He was aware of our needs for assistance and booked an accessible balcony for us. That room had better facilities than any I've seen. Thanks for your help, Karl, in planning this vacation.

Enchanted vacation

Reviewed By Lee - Houston TX | Traveled to Caribbean
Karl was on top of things - searching for the best, most economical opportunity to sail on the beautiful, new Enchanted Princess. He planned the trip to coordinate with other activities on our agenda and kept in touch with us prior to the trip as well as following up afterwards to make sure we had a good time. Importantly, he kept us up to date on all the Covid requirements. I look forward to working with Karl because he is the best, most engaged agent I have ever had.

Our Cruise Was an Enjoyable, Memorable Experience!

Reviewed By EdwinK - Sun City, Texas | Traveled to Chilean Fjords ~ Chile ~ South America
Karl listened when I explained what kind of vacation we wanted to have. He thoroughly researched and presented us with a couple of options. We selected the one we wanted and Karl did the rest -- planning, organizing, and arranging everything for our cruise as well as our pre- and post- cruise stays. He is great! He did everything for us. Karl has traveled in South America and previously took the same cruise we did. Our vacation was well worth the the cost! Much better than I could have done on my own. I am already talking with him about our next trip.

Enchanting cruise on Enchanted Princess

Reviewed By Lee - Houston Tx | Traveled to Caribbean
Karl carefully researched and provided the most appropriate options for my cruising experience. I'm older, don't like a lot of noisy "music", like to eat, etc. So he interviewed me and used that information to plan my trip , calculating costs and interests and matching that with the cruises available as well as my budget. It was a late season cruise - no hurricanes - and we had smooth sailing all the way. Enchanted Princess was lovely and we were welcomed in all the ports that she visited. Karl advised me about Covid restrictions for each location - much easier when coming on a cruise ship than when you fly into one of these islands! He checked with me regularly to make sure everything was on schedule, my flights and hotels were appropriately booked, and that I was content with the choices I had made. He followed up with me after the cruise to make sure all had gone as planned and offered his services for my next cruise. I will be delighted to use him again!

The Best Thing I Ever Did Was Take A World Cruise

The best thing I ever did was take a world cruise. Visiting all those countries. Seeing all those ports. Talking with the local people and experiencing the things of their every day lives is beyond words to describe these. Yes, it is a big chunk of time, and it does cost more than a shorter cruise, but it was well worth it, and I am hoping to do so again. You meet new people, who become your friends. You see the exotic -- kamoto dragons, the haka dance and the traditions of the Maori people, the tallest buildings in the world, whales, and canals. This is a once in a life-time experience that I will always treasure and never get tired of talking about. What about you? Let Karl arrange your world tour for you as he did for me.

Fears Gone Cruising Is The Best!

I did not want to go on our first cruise. I tried to get Mr. Mills to book an all-inclusive resort instead, but we had a special deal for Royal Caribbean. I was so nervous, and was sure I was going to be miserably anxious and overwhelmed the entire time. I came out of that experience not only happy we went, but absolutely in love with cruising. In my opinion, it is the best vacation someone with an anxiety condition can take, because there’s so much preparation that is done to make sure you have a good time.
