Luxury River Cruise Specialist
Cruising the Danube in 2017
River Cruising is one of my favorite ways to travel through a region and explore it in depth, without the hassle of packing and unpacking. I have personally cruised on the Rhine and the Danube, with the Mekong river next on my radar.
There are many river cruise lines in operation and many qualities that differentiate each one. I have trained with virtually all of the major river cruise lines, and regularly attend meetings with sales representatives and cruise industry events to stay current. There are a lot of choices out there, and my job is to help you sort through the overwhelming amount of information available to you. There are some significant differences between river cruises, and you should understand this before investing your money, and more importantly, your precious time in your vacation.
Once we find your perfect river cruise, I am here to help you plan your days pre and post cruise, with one of a kind, luxury hotels, ground transportation, and memorable, unique experiences. If you can dream it, there is a good chance, I can help make it happen!
Beyond the planning of your river cruise vacation, I am also here to support you while you are traveling, should you need it. Sometimes things don't go quite as planned, and it is good to know someone has your back.
There are some really special ships on the rivers, with extraordinary dining, service, wines, and amazing itineraries. Many travel through Europe, but you can also River cruise on the MeKong, in Russia, and there is a really special option on the Chobe River in Africa, the Zambezi Queen. I love helping my clients plan these incredible journeys.

Three Generations of Girls Trip
A single phone call to Diane Frisch got the wheels in motion. From start to the finish of planning our cruise, Diane was a wealth of information regarding all facets of cruising. It was the best decision I ever made using a travel agent as reservations could not have gone easier. Up to the day of our trip,
Most would think that is where a travel agents involvement ends; however, when we had an issue with the cruise line on the day of our departure due to an error on the part of the cruise line, one text message to Diane resolved a matter that three visits to Client Services aboard the ship did nothing.
In the words of a crew member “ You must have an excellent travel agent” and yes we did!
Thanks so much for your kind review! It was a pleasure working with you, and I am so glad that I was able to help resolve your problem (somewhat) promptly for you. I am fortunate to have some amazing folks working at the many cruise lines who can help make things right, when something goes amiss. This was clearly their error, and it just took getting in contact with the right person to make things right. Glad you could enjoy your sail away cocktail while I made the calls!
Diane was so helpful and full of knowledge of Barcelona and the places to go and I will definitely recommend her to anyone in any way I can!
Thanks so much for everything!
