All Inclusive Resorts and Cruise Expert

I love to help my clients plan the perfect vacation getaway!

Cruising is one of my favorite travel experiences and I have sailed on over 40 different ships throughout the Caribbean. Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises are my favorite lines because I feel that they have the most amazing ships and exciting itineraries. I have completed extensive training on both brands and would love to help you select the perfect cruise vacation.

I also think nothing is more relaxing than lying on a beautiful beach with a cold fruity drink in your hand at an all inclusive resort in Mexico or the Caribbean. I mean, wouldn't you really rather be there right now?!? There are so many different options to choose from that the process can seem overwhelming, but I am an expert in AM Resorts, Beaches and Sandals Resorts, Barcelo, Palace, Riu, Hard Rock and Iberostar Resorts and will narrow down your choices to help you decide. Whether you are interested in golf, spas, sightseeing, snorkeling, scuba diving, fine dining or simply relaxing, there is an all inclusive resort that will exceed your expectations.

I can't wait to help you make your dream vacation a reality!

Destination Wedding and Honeymoon Travel Expert

Honeymoons are one of my favorite types of trips to plan and both cruises and all inclusive resorts make a great option for newlyweds to relax and enjoy your time together. I can also assist you in setting up an online honeymoon registry, where your friends and family can give gifts to offset the expense of your trip.

Cruises Only for Twenty Years!
Planning a vacation with Julie who is an expert in her field will guarantee a stressless trip from beginning to end. Julie knows how to get you the best value while getting you the best room, the best ship, the best flight, and even travel to and from the airport. We would always choose Julie because time and time again she is a knowledgable and if she isn't certain she researches and gets back to you ASAP. Very professional and she cares about her clients. We would not think go going on a vacation without first consulting Julie. Large vacation or small we are alway treated as a valued client. Thank you Julie and staff. Sincerely, Marc and Mary

She makes me look good every year

Reviewed By Barry - Southfield, Michigan | Traveled to Las Vegas ~ Nevada ~ USA
I have been personally using Julie for a decade or more. She primarily works with me regarding a group trip every year and has done a masterful job dealing with a group of lawyers who travel, and they are not easy to satisfy. She does just that however.
I have used her for simple feedback and assistance personally as well. She is easy to reach, talk to, and follows through on everything needed to make things right.
Using her services and those of The World of Travel is a necessity in dealing with the myriad of potential problems that can arise trying to plan your travel needs yourself. This is easier. Much easier.

Twenty years of Julie

Reviewed By Oldies, but goodies! - Bloomfield Hills, MI | Traveled to Caribbean
Julie has been planning our trips for over twenty years. Family Caribbean, European, cruises, South American, South Africa and river cruises---Julie has done it all! Even though earthquakes in Chile and New Zealand. However, this form only allows for one destination! Of the more than 50 trips, 20 have been in the Caribbean.

Trip of a lifetime!

Reviewed By Sheel - Novi, MI | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
My family has trusted Julie with many of our big vacations over the last several years. The places we have gone were new to us and we did not know the area or where to stay. Every property we were booked at was in a great location and was a fantastic hotel/Resort/villa. Julie helps us by doing the research and taking care of the details I don’t have time to do. And we have never had a problem anywhere we have went.

The Best Trip Ever has to be all 3 cruises

Reviewed By Janet - Livonia, Michigan | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
I started utilizing Julie's services for work-related travel for my boss due to the close proximity of her office to ours (back when paper tickets were necessary). I then started utilizing Julie for personal travel and have referred her to my friends at the office (who also utilize her for work-related travel).

She has provided A#1 service for both work-related travel (last minute hotel changes, finding hotels when it appears that the city is entirely sold out, helping with rebooking flights at the last minute, etc.) and for my personal travel (coordinating a cruise for my entire family including the airfares with 3 adjoining cabins). We have booked a total of 3 cruises (2 Caribbean and 1 Alaskan) through Julie and all 3 have been wonderful and went forward without any glitches! (including having a pack-n-play in our daughter's cabin for our granddaughter).

I have had nothing but good experiences with Julie.

Great Trip!

Reviewed By Carrie - Rochester Hills, MI | Traveled to Hawaii Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Julie is very easy to work with. She is very accommodating and helpful with any question I had. She is my go-to gal when my travel plans are challenging.

She gave me different packages with different Hotels, Booked a pkg with Delta to reduce costs, which I would not have considered. Helped us find a Go San Francisco card to our tourism needs (which was very cool, by the way).

Everything she put together worked very well for us.
