Luxury and River Cruise Expert
I specialize in luxury ocean cruises in destinations including Europe and Alaska. I also specialize in European river cruises. I help both experienced and novice travelers to navigate the over-whelming amount of information available in order to plan the perfect vacation.
I have been in business for over 10 years. Since my early years, I have had a passion for travel and experiencing different cultures and customs. I also am very interested in art, history, and architecture. Sometimes I enjoy relaxing on a quiet beach and water sports such as scuba diving. These interests are ultimately what attracted me to a career in travel.
I have traveled to many parts of Europe including:
- the Baltic region
- both Eastern and Western Europe
I have been on land vacations here as well as ocean and river cruises. Europe fascinates me because of the history, art and architecture. I have also visited Alaska by both land and sea. The natural beauty of snow capped mountains and the calving of the glaciers is inspiring. I hold many certifications including:
- Accredited Cruise Counselor (ACC) from CLIA (Cruise Line International Association)
- Certified Personal Cruise Expert from Cruise Holidays
- Completed various cruise line certification programs for Royal Caribbean International, Regent Seven Seas, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, Cunard Line, Silversea Cruises, Princess Cruises, and Holland America Line
Professionally, I am known for my service. I will continue to work with you until your trip is fully planned from beginning to end Often times this involves making suggestions...possibly things you haven't thought about. I possess a great wealth of personal knowledge as I have cruised on all major cruise lines and various river cruise lines.
I can assist in planning a pre or post cruise stay or provide guidance on shore excursions. I strive to make your cruise vacation planning as easy and stress free as possible and to work with you so that your vacation exceeds your expectations in every way.
Why I Travel
Glacier Bay, Alaska
I recently returned from a river cruise along the Seine, France. The ship departed from Paris and cruised through the Normandy region of France. As part of this cruise, we visited small towns with architecture unique to this region of France. I will never forget visiting places like Omaha Beach and the United States World War II Cemetary. And of course Paris, the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triumph, and the magnificent Notre Dame Cathedral.
My favorite quote sums up best why I travel "The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page"..St. Augustine.
