Luxury Cruises, World Cruises & River Cruises

Hello from the Mediterranean, yachting Star Pride
Hello from the Mediterranean, yachting Star Pride

My mission statement is “Move life forward – live life now, don’t wait!” Whatever your interest: music, history, culinary wildlife, adventure, or something else, I can help you create your next travel memory. 

I started my travel industry career with Holland America Line at 24 years old and I understand that oceans connect and move us. They, along with the destinations that cruise ships bring us to, offer life, color and beauty. I have been with Cruise Specialists since 2012, and this allows me to bring together my passion for travel along with my desire to offer an enriching travel planning service to discerning travelers. My expertise lies in planning World Cruises and Grand Voyages, Hosted Voyages, river cruises (including unique back-to-back river cruises) and expedition cruises. 

My passion for travel has taken me to many intriguing places — I’ve been to Alaska at least 10 times and have covered much of the Caribbean several times over. I’ve experienced Europe, throughout western and eastern Europe (including a Danube river cruise), and many other wonderful places. Travel is what connects us and I cherish these memories, as well as helping my clients make their own. 

In order to be able to answer your questions and enhance the services I offer to you, I have experienced these cruise lines firsthand:

  • Crystal Cruises
  • Holland America Line (worked there for 10 years)
  • Oceania Cruises
  • Viking River Cruises
  • Windstar Cruises
  • Seabourn 

I have also toured and inspected ships with the following cruise lines:

  • Celebrity Cruises
  • Crystal Cruises
  • Oceania Cruises
  • Princess Cruises
  • Regent Seven Seas Cruises
  • Royal Caribbean
  • Seabourn
  • Silversea
  • UnCruise Adventures
  • American Queen Steamboat Company 

Some of my favorite cruise highlights include:

  • A two-week Crystal Cruise in the Caribbean. The all-inclusive nature of Crystal makes it such a relaxing experience! And the staff-to-guest ratio is truly outstanding.

  • A 7-day cruise on Oceania Sirena, from Barcelona to Malta. The cuisine on Oceania Cruises is touted as The Finest Cuisine at Sea. I can personally attest that their food is beyond incredible, with an emphasis on fresh, local ingredients their chefs gather in the ports being visited. 

While I have been on many more cruises, the above experiences help highlight some of the ways I am looking to enrich your travels. 

Voyage Host 

Another cruising highlight that has enhanced my understanding of client needs is that I have served as a Voyage Host. As a Voyage Host on a Windstar Cruise in the Mediterranean, I was an extra resource for a group of 40 travelers who had reserved their cruise through our special group. You can read more about this in my Hosted Cruises bio. 

Finally, as a Cruise Consultant with Cruise Specialists, I have the support of a strong and experienced team that helps me respond to any need you may have. We have decades of experience in working with detailed reservations, planning pre- and post-cruise hotel stays, travel protection and much more.   

I look forward to meeting with you via phone or email, hearing about your travel dreams and making your next trip unforgettable.

Very easy to work with

Reviewed By Ming-Hsi - Mountain View | Traveled to World Cruise
Teresa was very helpful as my mother isn’t very tech savvy for on line reservations and planning. She was integral into coordinating for us and seemed quite happy to do so. She is also definitely not a high pressure sales person. Friendly, outgoing and easy to work with!

Teresa has been terrific to work with. She always has, or finds answers to my most obscure questions. If cruise prices change, she has been able to get reduced fares or cruise credits for us. She is very knowledgeable about all the cruise lines and remembers our preferences, when making suggestions for current, or future cruises. Thank you Teresa!!

Great Cruise Booking Experience

Reviewed By Krzysztof - Lakewood | Traveled to Danube
Teresa Skeim a true professional who truly cares about her clients. She steered us to a wonderful River Cruise experience which we just came back from. She made sure all the details were covered and if she saw any price reduction or any extra benefits subsequent to the booking, she would steer them (no pun intended) our way. I highly recommend her as she is excellent in her profession. I was truly lucky to have discovered her. She is friendly and a very nice genuine person
