World travelling with confidence

Reviewed By Kevin - Sneads Ferry, North Carolina | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
Gary (and his wife Kelli) have looked after my family's travel plans for nearly 20 years. They have arranged several World Cruises for my wife and myself, from Cunard, Radisson, and then Regent. We have benefited from the deep knowledge of the business that they have and their ability to contact many in the industry to resolve problems. And problems do arise. My family now uses them too.

From my experience the travel business is changing rapidly, There is more foreign competition, and many foreign ports are extending their docking space to encourage ships to visit. While that is good for their economies, five ships docked in one port makes life ashore a little crowded and that is where you need an Agent who has a wide knowledge of the Travel Business. Gary handles these problems very effectively.

Cruising to see the world!

Reviewed By Cruisers - New Philadelphia, Ohio | Traveled to Ohio ~ USA
We have been working with Gary and Kelli Spadaccini since 1999. Almost 50 cruises later, most have been booked by them. They have served us well. They respond promptly to queries. They work with us to get the best deal available and provide valuable advice. Several times they have had to "go to bat" for us when there was a glitch with a booking, not of their or our making. The outcome always has been satisfactory. They like feedback after trips which allows them to help others. Despite the fact that we live several states apart, their attention has been as good or better than working with a local agency. We communicate effectively by telephone, e-mail, or text. The cruises we have booked with them have taken us to all continents except Antarctica. I was unable to express that below under "Your Destination" so I listed our home state instead, which ultimately is the final destination for any trip! We've recommended them to friends and relatives as well.

Tuition Free - FINALLY!

Reviewed By Angel - Merrimack, NH | Traveled to Caribbean
Gary helps us to find the perfect vacation to suit our dreams and our budget! He knows everything about every ship and every port and could help us to make the perfect choice in our cruise, it was AWESOME! There is so much information out there that we could have gone crazy. All we had to do was make a call or was it a quick email? to Gary and BOOM! Choices of exactly what we were looking for and an easy decision was made. Gary's professional guidance made all the difference for us, we didn't have time, or the experience and knowledge, to try to look at different cruise lines . He saved us time, found us the best pricing and continued to help us with questions right up until we got on board! Someone who may be considering cruising or an experiened cruiser, would benefit from Gary's expertise. Plus, he's just a good guy! We work too hard to trust our precious vacation to anyone else. Thank you Gary!!!

Gary has booked and managed 7 wonderful vacations for my family since 2010. Every vacation has been better than the previous one. This year we went on our first European river cruise, from Budapest to Prague. It was fabulous.

We like to visit new places each year and Gary always provides expert guidance to ensure we have an enjoyable, worry-free vacation. Gary handles all of the important details and I can easily contact him directly, without having to speak with a stranger on a 1-800 number.

We highly recommend Gary for all your travels!

Reviewed By Betsy E. - Dallas, TX | Traveled to Bermuda ~ Caribbean
Gary was very responsive to our questions as first-time cruisers. He also made sure we had the necessary parental consent forms to take our daughter's friend with us. We would've never known that we needed special, notarized consent, and the cruise line asked for it at check in. Thank goodness we were prepared. Gary also made sure we had the lowest fare available and got us a lower price after booking.
