Cruise Counselor and Sandals/Beaches Specialist
What Baby Boomer doesn’t want to wake up in the morning on a European River Cruise and look out the window to see the great Cathedrals and beautiful Vineyards of Central Europe? As an Elite Cruise Counselor, I have the knowledge to help clients pick the cruise that best suits their interests, whether they are foodies, wine enthusiasts, or history buffs.
And how about those honeymooners or couples looking for a romantic getaway? Wouldn’t they love a destination wedding/honeymoon or romantic stay at an all-inclusive Sandals Resort in the Caribbean? As a Certified Sandals Specialist, I have visited nearly every one of the Sandals and Beaches resorts in the Caribbean. And I have been trained on-site as a Sandals WeddingMoons Specialist. I can easily recommend the location best suited to my clients’ wishes and needs.
My extensive cruise experience has taken me aboard Royal Caribbean, Princess, Norwegian, MSC, Holland America, Disney, Crystal, Celebrity and Carnival ships. There’s nothing better than firsthand experience to be able to recommend the cruise line that best suits my individual clients. As a Princess Commodore, I have the knowledge necessary to plan that dream Alaskan cruise. Holland America’s Panama Canal itinerary took me to new islands not included in normal Western Caribbean itineraries. As a Freestyle Certified agent of Norwegian Cruise Line, I expanded my personal cruise experience with Norwegian when I sailed the Hawaiian Islands.
I continually seek to further my education with individual cruise lines, adding additional certifications continually: Royal Caribbean Expert, Norwegian Master's Degree, MSC Specialist, Celebrity Five Star Academy Grad, Carnival PhD of Awesome. An ever-growing list!
Additionally, I have trained with various hoteliers affording me certifications including Hilton Travel Professional and Starwood Pro.
Traveling to Abu Dhabi opened my eyes to the beauty of the desert and introduced me to a land of peoples from many nations. Standing on the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa 125 floors above Dubai, visiting the Gold Souks in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, boating off the Arabian Gulf, touring the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, taking a desert safari, visiting a camel farm, all were experiences not to be missed.

Betty, Thank you so much for making our family's first cruise one that we will never forget. We loved every minute of it. We didn't want to leave. It made our 20th anniversary even more special than it already was. The banners and streamers in the room were such a nice touch. Every detail was perfect thanks to your hard work. We can't wait to travel by cruise again in the future. We look forward to booking another trip with you.Thank you so much.RN
Betty, We cannot thank you enough for helping us plan our honeymoon! Sandals St. Lucia was absolutely beautiful and we had an incredible time! And [my husband's] life was forever changed by the couples massage; we are grateful for you help with planning that. He's hooked :) Thank you so again!WT&a
