Citrus Heights, California Travel Agent
Expert Planning for Resort and Cruise Group Events
I always get excited helping people plan awesome group cruise events because I enjoy this way of traveling so much.
With a passion for tropical destinations, I take every specialist training available to stay informed about my favorite places. Those destnations and regions include:
- Mediterranean Sea
- Caribbean Islands
- Hawaiian Islands
- South Pacific
Over the years, my travels have spanned 6 continents and 57 countries. I've dreamed of travel all my life. After living in France as a cultural exchange student at age 16, I was hooked! Being an international flight attendant allowed me to continue my travels around the world.
In previous careers with recreation management, professional counseling, and social work, I've enjoyed working with groups in every capacity. An extensive travel history, coupled with my group experience, instilled in me the skills needed to assist you in planning an exceptional group event at sea.
I am the author of "The More the Merrier, How to Plan the Perfect Group Vacation". I will show you how to hold your group event on a fun-filled cruise ship while sailing to exotic ports-of-call. No matter the size of your group, I can arrange cruises for a wide variety of occasions and events, such as:
- Friendship getaways
- Theme parties
How am I qualified? First and foremost, I love cruising, the sea, and sand between my toes! I received my Accredited Cruise Counselor designation in 2014, and I have planned group events to the Caribbean, Hawaii, and Mexico on Carnival, Norwegian, and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. I am currently completing specialist trainings for many other major cruise lines.
With my Hotel Sales Specialist Certification, it’s a breeze planning pre- and post-hotel arrangements for my groups. I am a Fort Lauderdale Destination Specialist, and also belong to cruise line and travel agent organizations. I have established working relationships with many sales representatives for cruises, resorts, hotels, land travel, touring, shore excursions, and travel insurance. I am also a Sandals Specialist and love planning resort group events.
The most rewarding part of travel planning is when my clients keep coming back and even refer their friends and family to me.

"A great big thank you to Gloria for helping us plan this great vacation. What a great resource and guide. She was available to answer questions most of the time, and if she took a day off, she responded the next day.
"She gave us great recommendations as to how to dress, suggestions for excursions, and tips for packing. It was nice to have a personal touch. I would definitely recommend her. I plan to use her services on my next vacation!" —Florette Grado, High School Reunion Cruise 2014
