European Luxury & River Cruise Enthusiast

Today, luxury is not made of marble. Luxury is offering exclusive experiences the ordinary traveler doesn't have access to. Wanting to try a new destination? With "over 25 years" of being a travel; snob, I understand that having coffee with kangaroos in Australia, a Vespa tour thru Tuscany. Southern France shopping at the supermarket with the local chef followed by cooking lesson in his kitchen are all things that make travel extraordinary, after all the devil is in the details.

10 Reasons to River Cruise

On a River Cruise you get to enjoy the changing scenery from your stateroom balcony as you sail through multiple countries and visit charming European towns along the way. 

Here are a few reasons why you MUST take a River Cruise: 

Greece = Food, history, beaches, OPA!

I traveled to Greece for the first time after so many years of this being on my bucket list.  It was everything I had hoped for and so much more!  I spent time in Athens, Mykonos, Santorini and Crete.  So much history and beauty. 

Mykonos is a beautiful rugged island with quaint ... Read more from my Greece = Food, history, beaches, OPA! story.

The food, sights and smells of Spain

I recently took a trip to Spain in March 2017.  I had the opportunity to travel with some of fellow travel agents and Insight vacations.  We started in Madrid.  What a majestic city.  Shopping on the Gran Via (high end shops).  We went to the Prada museum and I was so impressed with ...

Missy is a joy to work with

Reviewed By Cindy - Minnetonka MN | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Missy is one of the most passionate agents I know. She really truly cares
about her clients. I know this because I am one of her Whole Sale Business Development Managers. I have worked with Missy for many years. She puts her heart and soul into every booking to make sure she is giving the best advise for the best price to each and every client. When things go right she is so excited about the trips she has planned and takes delight in hearing her clients stories. The very few times things go wrong she is right there trying to get things fixed to the satisfaction of her clients. If my family or friends were looking for an agent Missy would be one that I would recommend. She is knowledgeable, she listens to what your needs and wants are, she makes suggestions based on her experiences and she does this all with a smile.

Why would you not use a travel agent??

Reviewed By Mrs. Palmer - St. Paul, MN | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Missy has been amazing since the first time we used her services! She went above and beyond to help us plan the most amazing wedding trip ever! We have continued to work with her and send all our friends and family to her because she always makes sure you're taken care of.

On our first vacation, we encountered an issue with our room reservation. I got Missy on the phone and explained the issue. She said "Don't worry about it. Go have fun and I'll take care of it." Sure enough, 2 hours later, a resort employee found us and told us everything was taken care of! Amazing!

Not only that, but working with her on picking this resort proved to be way worth it! She helped us narrow down our options and we ultimately decided on Secrets Silversands. She told us that she loved these resorts and that we were picking a great one, and boy was she right! We have continued to go back to Secrets because they are so wonderful!

Missy really knows her stuff!

The Holy Land Cruise by Princess Cruises

Reviewed By Petmommy4 - Maple Grove, MN | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Missy is and has been nothing but a pleasure to work with. She is kind and patient and works tirelessly to get us the best arrangements based on our budget and unique family's needs. She has provided crucial insight and advice on multiple worldwide trips that my family and I have taken over the last several years. Her recommendations are always spot on and her extensive travel experience has saved us from the many pitfalls that surely would have occurred had we tried to navigate these countries on our own. On the rare occasion that we have had a glitch in our plans, a quick call to Missy is all it takes to get us back on track and moving. I would never consider traveling far or near without a call to Missy the first step in our plans.

No trip, but still great service.

Reviewed By Tom - Edgewater, FL | Traveled to Europe
Missy planned a superb trip for us, which unfortunately we were unable to take due to illness. So my review is primarily about the great job she did securing complete refunds from the cruise line and insurance company, including all airfare and deposits. I filled out a couple of forms and she took it from there.
If every trip went off without a hitch, we wouldn't always need a great travel agent. But they don't, and we do. And Missy is a great travel agent.

Missy saved the day!

Reviewed By Tony - Eagan, MN | Traveled to Cozumel ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Missy was amazing! She arranged a great vacation for us at a good price. Our only criteria were "an all-inclusive someplace warm".

Unfortunately one day into our trip, we experienced a medical emergency and had to fly home. This is where Missy truly shined! She was able to get our return tickets transferred to a flight home that afternoon, and not only that, was able to get us a very generous voucher for a redo on the trip.

After our experience, it's safe to say we will be using Missy for all future vacations, and recommending her to anyone we know who will be traveling.

While interrupting your vacation in an emergency situation is never what is intended but this is the reason you use an agent.

Living in Minnesota by the time January comes we are in need of some Vitamin D and Sunshine, For 19 years Missy has been providing us wonderful adventures in the Sun. She has put us on Cruise ships, sent us to Ixtapa, Cozumel, Cancun, Playa, Riviera Maya, Cabo San Lucas and Punta Cana.

Each destination has been wonderful, this year we went to the Riu Palace Baja California and did several Whale Watching trips and had an amazing time.

Missy is always there for us if we need her and she makes sure that we know everything about where we are going and what we will need.

She has made our Winter getaways the best they could be and she is always willing to find us a new resort with great amenities and we have always had wonderful experiences. We travel with anywhere from 8 to 14 people and our love for Cabo San Lucas has grown so much, this was our 4th time there.

38 days through the Pacific to NZ and Australia

Reviewed By pdq - North Oaks, MN | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
Missy has planned a couple of trips for us now, and she's shown herself to be both knowledgable and easy to work with. For instance, I recently (foolishly!) had her book with a carrier against her advice, because it was a little cheaper than her original recommendation. My attempt go cut corners backfired when the cheaper carrier cancelled our return flight, and we had to book on the airline Missy had originally recommended, at the last minute. I learned my lesson- she knows her stuff!

We have enough confidence with Missy and her agency that we can let them book tours for us on our travels, and they've always turned out great.

Snow storms are never fun and glad we were able to get you re-accommodated so you weren't stuck in St. Lucia (although some would say that wouldn't be so bad). Your trip down under in Australia was so much fun to plan and I am glad it was just as rewarding.

Everything was Perfect!!

Reviewed By Frequent Travelers - Minnetrista | Traveled to Europe
Missy did a fabulous job of arranging every detail of our trip and was exceptionally responsive to our every question and especially our last minute requests.

Our 12 day trip thru parts of Italy and Switzerland included stops at 5 different hotels. Our rooms were consistently in terrific locations and exceeded our expectations in terms of views they offered and cleanliness.

Missy prearranged our transportation from city to city.....everything was perfect.

The trip was a gift to our daughter and son-in-law. Our son-in-law had not been to Europe before. We all had an exceptional experience.

Best of Italy

Reviewed By Mimi - Shoreview, MN | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Working with Missy made our first trip to Europe seamless and very enjoyable. Her expertise in cultural norms, tips on "things you need to know" and her patience in finding the right flights for us were invaluable. It was great to be able to book optional excursions ahead of time through Missy as well as taking care of gratuities for our Director and bus driver so we had one less thing to worry about. We were constantly given updates on our trip status and any emails with questions that arose were answered immediately making for a stress free experience.

Perfect Destination wedding!

Reviewed By The Palmer's - St. Paul, MN | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
My husband and I worked with Missy to plan a special trip with many of our friends and family to Secrets Silversands in Riviera Maya, Mexico in February. It was a one year anniversary, vow renewal, and honeymoon all wrapped up into one amazing vacation! We absolutely loved working with Missy! From the first contact, every meeting, e-mail, and phone call was received with such enthusiasm. We could tell she wanted to make this a very memorable experience with as little work for us as possible. Mission accomplished! We had a total of 20 people join us on our vacation over the course of the week and for our vow renewal on Valentine’s Day. We did not have to do one thing in planning for our guests. Missy took care of everything! Not to mention how she helped us narrow down our choices of resorts. Missy has so much experience in traveling, that she knew exactly what we would like after asking just a few questions. She was spot on! In working with Missy we had pretty high expectations of
