Caribbean Travel & Cruise Specialist

Custom-designed is always better than one-size-fits-all, especially when it comes to travel. That is why I strive hard to customize the itineraries that I create for my clients to their specific needs and travel preferences. For example, I recently booked a cruise for a group to Cuba. I wanted them to enjoy something unique and special, so I arranged a customized shore excursion that included a walking tour of Old Havana, admission to Ambos Mundos Hotel (where Ernest Hemingway wrote the first chapters of For Whom the Bell Tolls), and visits to a number of Cuba's most popular attractions, including Camara Oscura and Plaza Vieja.

My main specialty is booking cruises. I love helping my clients to choose the right cruise line, ship, and excursions for their traveling preferences and desires. Another area that I specialize in is the Caribbean. Although I was born and raised in New Jersey, my family spent most summers in Puerto Rico, so I'm very familiar with the Caribbean culture and all that it can offer visitors.

As the owner of a travel agency, I also pride myself on continuing my education so that I can stay up-to-date on what is going on in the travel industry. The following are some of the certificates I have earned:

  • Norwegian Cruise Line PHD Holder
  • Sandals CSS

In addition to booking your vacation and ensuring that your itinerary is seamless, I will also be there if trouble should strike. Traveling is fun, but because it is composed of moving parts, it's not unusual for unexpected issues to arise. Fortunately, if you book your vacation with me, I can help you deal with any problems that might occur, advocate on your behalf and also make any new arrangements that may be necessary. Some of the problems I've dealt with in the past include: 

  • Making special arrangements for clients to get home ahead of schedule when they've become ill while on vacation
  • Helping clients who have discovered their passports have expired the night before travel to get a new one issued

Please contact me, so I can provide you with more information about the many services I can provide for you.

Maria has been an absolute blessing to work with while planning our 1st ever family cruise to Bermuda in October! She has handled all of my endless questions and inquiries with ease, has been extremely polite and very helpful. We don't go on our cruise until October but I am so excited to finish planning all the other details in the upcoming months with Maria! Thank you Maria for all of your help so far - we can't wait to cruise with our kids!!

Maria is the best travel agent! I gave her my general plan for a graduation trip for my kids and she got back to me right away with a number of choices, well within my budget and all the details clearly outlined. Hotel, airfare, transfers, fees, everything detailed and all in one package. Helped us out with passport questions too! Best trip ever!!!! Can't wait to book our next one with her!!!!

Vacations

Reviewed By Kat - Linden, NJ | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
So far I've had two great vacations in less than a year thanks to Maria's expertise. She suggested two different resorts in Punta Cana both of which I couldn't have been happier with and handled everything down to the last detail leaving me with nothing to do but pack. She's quick and efficient and I definitely recommend her!

Detail oriented and professional

Reviewed By PAAC - Brodheadsville, PA | Traveled to
We used Maria services to book a hotel for some of my staff who needed to go to a training, this training was in an area that we did not know, so I wanted it to be safe as well as affordable because we're only a small business. Maria found the perfect Hotel, staff was happy, it was close to their conference, and they were thrilled when she called them to make sure everything went smoothly with check in !

Everything was GREAT

Reviewed By CeeLo - New Jersey | Traveled to
I gave Maria what I was looking for and she found the perfect vacation for me, Nothing was overlooked or taken for granted on her part. This made the vacation that more relaxing. Maria even went above and beyond to make sure everything that was discussed was available to me while on vacation. I had an issue with the sleeping arrangement and I called Maria and she took care of it within 5 minutes of getting off the phone. I have already recommended her to friends and will definitely use her again.

I wish I could give her a ten star review!

Reviewed By MRP - Scranton | Traveled to
Maria helped a group of us book an excursion to an all - inclusive resort in Playa Del Carmen. She worked with us to find a vacation that fit our travel specifications, as well as our budget. The resort that we stayed at was literally cut out of the rain forest and offered our group excellent service, exciting nightly entertainment and unique dining options. The resort was perfect for our little teachers getaway! Unfortunately, we encountered some issues on one of our return flights home due to a mechanical problem with the plane. Maria was immediately in touch with the airline and kept us posted on the root cause of the delay, and even tried to get us on a different flight home. She went above and beyond in her dutiest. We are in the process of booking our next adventure with Maria and couldn't be any happier with our travel agent.

Maria is a true travel specialist

Reviewed By DivaQueen - Brooklyn, NY | Traveled to
I put the planning of my daughter's college graduation gift of a cruise in Maria's hands and what I didn't know was... (SHHH- SHE IS A SECRET JUGGLER because those hands sure did some tricks). Not only did we get the trip we wanted, but it came with a great discount. Her juggling also allowed other family members to be able to join us on this trip. She made sure I didn't miss my deposit deadline with friendly reminders. She is now also helping us with transportation to get to our cruise port and back home. And she doesn't even stop there, she is also providing information on the ports and activities on the ship. I cannot wait to go on this trip. I WISH I COULD TAKE HER WITH US.
