Personal Cruising History
Over ten years ago, my family took our first Caribbean cruise and we have been hooked ever since. After returning from our first cruise, we vowed that we would continue to cruise as often as possible.
To date, we have taken eleven cruises - ten to the Caribbean and one Mediterranean cruise.
We have visited countries such as Jamaica, Belize, Cayman Islands, Mexico, Turks & Caicos Islands, US Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, St. Maarten and The Bahamas - several times.
In addition to vsiting several fun Caribbean islands plus ports of call in France, Spain and Italy, I have sailed with some of the top cruise lines: Carnival Cruise Lines, Costa Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean International.
One of the greatest things I love about cruising is that it offers families such as mine (we have three children) an opportunity to have a fun-filled vacation at a tremendous price.
It was therefore so easy to specialize in offering cruise packages to families, when I decided to pursue a career in the travel business.
My Pledge To You
My family continues to cruise, taking one such vacation per year. One thing we always do is to check for the best itinerary at the right price. This is what drives my efforts to help other famiiles decide on a cruise vacation.
I understand that families work hard, deserve memorable vacations, but also do not want to break the bank to get away. My clients can always count on me to offer them the best value for their hard-earned money.
Today I am always excited whenever a new family sits down with or calls me to plan their cruise vacation. I am always ready to go again, but I am also eager to set them up for the best vacation they will have (I believe cruising is the best vacation a family can take).
New Personal Venture
In addition to helping families and couples plan for a memorable vacation, I have begun a new venture called a "Mission Cruise." This is where I invite people along on a cruise vacation with a "mission twist." The twist is simply bringing needed items along to donate to a local school or orphanage.
My inaugural Mission Cruise occurred in October 2014. Eight cabins of passengers sailed via Carnival Victory to Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands.
In Ocho Rios, we were met by a representative from a local school. We visited the school and handed over school supplies to the Guidance Counselor, who shared them among the neediest children.
That was simply an exciting event!
I plan to do this every year and invite you to consider joining me.
Addressing Your Personal Concern
If you are hoping to take your family on vacation, but are uncertain what to do, please allow me to share with you why you should cruise.
Think about paying one ticket price and getting all your meals, accommodations, activities and entertainment, plus the opportunity to visit new places.
This is second to none! It is one of the main reasons why I love to cruise and also to help others experience this thrilling experience.
I promise to work with you to offer your family the best vacation package, at a price that works for you.
Visit Orlando Specialist
While I have devoted most of my travel career to helping families plan exciting cruise vacations, I believe that I can help in another area.
I recently completed a "Visit Orlando Specialist" course and I am now ready to assist families with planning trips to the highly exciting Central Florida area.
I know that completing a single course on an area is not enough to prepare one to offer expertise, but there is more...
My family has visited the Orlando area on several occasions. We own a timeshare with Starwood Vacations and our home resort is in Orlando. To date, we have stayed at the Starwood Vistana Villages and the Starwood Vistana Resort.
In addition, we have visited all Disney Theme Parks on two different occasions. In fact, we will be visiting Disney again this spring break. We have also visited other fun places such as Universal Studios, Holy Land Experience, The Kennedy Space Center and others.
I have even attended a Travel Agent Bootcamp at Universal Studios.
I am ready to help!
