River Cruising, Italy and All Inclusive


River cruising has been extremely popular in recent years and those that have sailed always return with rave reviews. I decided it was time for me to experience river cruising and come to my own conclusions. In May, I sailed on the Seine from Paris to Normandy's Landing Beaches on Avalon's Creativity. I must confess, it exceeded my expectations! The ship was spotless and the intimate size made it perfect for a relaxing yet exciting journey. The staff was amazing and went out of their way to make passengers feel pampered and well taken care of. The cruise director was always accessible to answer questions making sure each passenger was enjoying their trip. This would not be possible on a large cruise ship. Excursions that were included in the fare were well planned and enriching. The tour guides were outstanding and gave colorful accounts of the places visited. I fell in love with the picturesque Normandy countryside, especially Monet's garden in Giverny and the village of Auvers Sur Oise where Picasso spent his last months. No words can accurately describe the beauty of the region. For those interested in history, the excursion to the D-Day landing beaches proved to be a somber yet rewarding experience. To visit the memorials pays tribute to the many soldiers that lost their lives. I found the people of France to be gracious and friendly belying the rumors of their cold manners. I always felt welcomed. Traveling along the river from one of the most romantic cities in the world was one of the best times of my life. With the many itineraries Avalon Waterways offers I will be sure to be sailing with them in the future.

Arranges Memorable Vacations

Reviewed By TropicBon - Powell, OH | Traveled to Panama Canal ~ Panama ~ Central America
We have used Michelle's services for many years. She's arranged an escorted tour in Italy, several cruises, and many vacations to Sandals all-inclusive resorts for us. She takes the time to listen to what you desire in an ideal vacation, and then researches the best options to book a memorable vacation at the best price. She has traveled extensively and can draw on her own personal experience in making recommendations.

Probably the most valuable part of using Michelle's services is that you know you have a reliable person who has your back in case unexpected issues come up during travel. One year we were returning from a Sandals resort in Jamaica. Our phones were turned off due to high cost of international cell phone service, but we had wifi at the airport and could access our email. That's when we learned that our flight was delayed. She kept in touch with us about more delays, which was most appreciated.

We would highly recommend Michelle Karn for all of your travel nee

Can't Imagine a Better Travel Agent!

Reviewed By Jay and Barbara - Westerville, Ohio | Traveled to Milan ~ Italy ~ Europe
Michelle has arranged several trips for us over the last 5 years ranging from a winter getaway to Riviera Maya, an Alaska cruise with land tours, a 10-day guided tour to Tuscany from Rome, and most recently, a (perfect) two-week trip to northern Italy.

We can't say enough good things about Michelle. She knows her business well enough to suggest worthwhile options about where to go, where to stay, and how to get there. Every itinerary she's done for us has been flawless. She pays attention to the details, and always follows up.

We've recommended Michelle to family and friends, and can't imagine ever planning another trip without her.

Best Trip

Reviewed By Arsenal Guy - Dublin, Ohio | Traveled to Mexico
Michelle was terrific from day one! She was extremely easy to work with on my family trip. She was very responsive and knowledgeable about our trip location, fly info, and etc. I personally have never worked with a travel leaders in the past. Any fear was out the door after a quick 5-minute face to face with Michelle.

Moving forward I will let Michelle do the planning of future trips and I will just claim all the great reviews from my family. Highly recommend.

Spectacular Experience

Reviewed By Ken - Westerville OH | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
Michelle listened carefully to our interests and helped us pick a tour that was perfect for us. She was an effective advocate for us with the tour company and the airline. No detail escaped her notice. She reminded us about visas and made sure that our fights were reasonably timed. We will always remember how much we experienced on a tour that was comprehensive, yet not too hectic.

We have used Michelle for many trips, all of them memorable. Michelle always comes through for us; she is the best.

Every Journey, Every Time Simply the Best

I have worked with Michelle 15 years now. The very first time was for our honeymoon and we have had a wonderful relationship and partnership sense. Michelle is very thorough and listen's to her customers needs, wants, and desires, as well as consideration for budget. Over the years she has planned all of my very special memories with my husband, family, & friends. Each time she has exceeded my expectations and is always very responsive with my many questions and follow-ups. Michelle has the special touch to make every travel journey more than just a vacation, more than just a dream come true, are experiences are simply amazing and breath taking. We are blessed that we can travel to various places like---Mexico, the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and Greek Isles, Disney World, Phoenix, Hawaii, and many other destinations. Each time Michelle delivers and experience that tops the last. Every aspect of planning; resort/hotel, flights, excursions, my spa/shopping, & my husbands golf.The BEST!
