Luxury Travel, Honeymoon, Premium Cruise Specilist

Since 2010 I have been crafting dream vacation, honeymoons and destination weddings for clients just like you.   But don't worry, you will not get a "one size fits all" vacation with my agency. 

I love to travel and love helping my clients make vacation dreams come true.

I specialize in travel to the:

Caribbean: Jamaica, St Lucia, Antigua, Barbados and Grenada

South Pacific: Tahiti, Bali, Hawaii, and Australia

Asia: Thailand, and China

Africa: South Africa

Europe: Greece, Italy, Portugal and France

Most clients I introduce to these areas come back to ask me to organize vacations to other destinations, including Africa, Maldives, Seychelles and South America.  I travel extensively to Europe, Hawaii and the Caribbean.  I was born and raised in Jamaica and have great insight on the Island.

I enjoy organizing vacations centered on luxury travel, honeymoons, family travel, babymoons, and cruises.  I also book Incentive travel and meetings for corporate clients as well as groups.

Look forward to hearing from you soon!

 

 

Last Minute glitch!

St Mark's Square, Venice

My clients know they can count on me before travel and while they are traveling.

I once had a client traveling in Paris who booked a day trip to London, she woke up and could not find her documents and did not know what to do.  I called the driver at 4:00 AM EST and reconfirm her pick up and emailed her train pass for the trip.

After months of planning a 15 day European cruise and tour, the client with a foreign passport discovered he needed to renew. Client was told passport would not be ready in time for the trip.  I contacted the client's country council general office and was able to expedite the passport issuance in a timely manner to get necessary vias.

More than we could imagine!

Reviewed By Honeymoon - Bronx, NY | Traveled to Amalfi ~ Italy ~ Europe
Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!!!!
You are truly amazing at what you do.

Our honeymoon was more than what we could have imagined! The locations were perfect. The tours were fun, gorgeous and story filled. And the order in which we did it... just perfect. I had never thought much of travel agencies but now I can't even imagine how much better our previous trips could have been with your help. You were truly meant to be in this profession. I have told Xavier and Laura how great you are and thanked them for introducing us to you. I know I may have made things a little tough with our limitations but you took what we thought we could do and made it sooooo much more.

Joan Newton Most Knowledgeable Travel Consultant

Reviewed By Patti - Bronx, NY | Traveled to Europe
It was my good fortune to meet Joan Newton, President of JB Cruise & Tours in January 2017. From our first meeting, I knew I was dealing with a professional, who was very knowledgeable of the travel business and someone who was well-traveled and would guide me in the right direction. In short order she presented me with several considerations that were just the right fit for my discriminating taste. Joan even found single occupancy rates, which can be almost impossible to find. I booked my river cruise in January for July departure; and throughout the following months, Joan continued to be attentive and kept in touch with updates, reminders about payment deadlines, and all other pertinent matters. In fact because of her attention to all details, I purchased travel insurance which ended up being a wise choice because I had to cancel my trip but thankfully all costs were recovered. Thank you Joan for everything and I will definitely be calling upon you to re-book my trip.

Queen Mary Cruise

Reviewed By Ria - Yonkers, NY | Traveled to
Joan, did an excellent job planning my in-laws cruise on the Queen Mary. She added them to an upgraded list, which they were upgraded to one of the Queen suite and they had a great time! After they departed the cruise, there was excellent execution from the ship to their hotel in Hamburg and then onto Mannheim. I will definitely recommend Joan and her travel company if you're planning any type of vacation, convention or getaway!

Cruise Experience

Reviewed By Paula S. - Bronx, NY | Traveled to
Ever since I met Joan in 2015, I have had such great vacation experiences. Personally, I had never used a travel agent before. Once I met Joan, I have raved about my experience with her to others who might be interested in vacation, wedding, or honeymoon planning. She takes the headache out of trying to plan a trip. Joan is very on point, amicable, warm, upfront, and knowledgeable concerning her craft. She gets a feel of who you are, what you like, and where you would like to go, and puts together a package just for you. Not only is she interested in the "before" the vacation, but also the "after" of your vacation. She is very accessible, and should you run into an issue while on vacation, she can be contacted to resolve the issue. When it comes to her clients, Joan's focus is all about mapping out a beautiful vacation experience that they would enjoy and remember in the years to come. She is very accommodating, and always goes above and beyond to make your vacation dream a reality. Try her for yourself, and you will see how on point she is when it comes to your business.

She made our trip amazing!

Reviewed By Xavier - New York, NY | Traveled to
We are truly impressed with the attention to detail and constant availability of our agent, Joan Newton. Now a days people undervalue the need for using services of people who know the details of the destination. My wife and I, appreciated Joan's help & guidance in picking the perfect full itinerary and also organizing our requests. I highly recommend Joan Newton as a travel agent, she's a true professional, immensely qualified and extremely efficient.
