Alaskan Cruise

Hi Anna-- I wanted to thank you so very much for all your help getting our Alaska adventure worked out. Everything went off without a hitch! Thank you also for the lovely steak dinner. We entered the Inside Passage on Monday and our first stop was Ketchikan. We took a float plane and flew over the Misty Fjords. We landed on a lake by a waterfall and all got out on the floats. It was great fun.. Tuesday was our day in Juneau. We went whale watching in the morning ,and spent time at Mendenhall Glacier in the afternoon. Whale watching was so much fun. We saw two momma Humpbacks and their babies. One momma was so close to our boat that you could hear her blow hole opening and closing. We also saw lots and lots of eagles, sea lions, and seals. On the way back into the bay we could see the Mendenhall Glacier--a river of ice. All in all, it was the best adventure ever! Thanks again for everything! I hope to work with you again in the future.

Hubbard Glacier and Glacier Bay were extraordinary

Reviewed By PK - Albertville | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Everything was great. The cruise in Hubbard Glacier and Glacier Bay were extraordinary! Weather was overcast, but travel agents can't control the weather. We would do it all over again.

Anna took care of all the hotel arrangements post cruise. She was always available to answer any questions along the way. Great to work with!

Fantastic Family trip to Cancun

Reviewed By Lana J - Anoka, MN | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Hi Anna,
I cannot tell you what a fantastic trip we had in Cancun. We are ready to go back.....tomorrow!
A couple questions:
We LOVED the all inclusive...if we went to Playa next Winter, what is a reasonable hotel for us and would it be similar in price? Just curious! It is so overwhelming to look at all the hotels, etc. online.

Thanks,
Lana

Absolutely Wonderful Trip

Reviewed By Sue N - Medford, MN | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico

How was your trip?
Our trip was absolutely wonderful - hotel was great, we even got upgraded to a family suite which was amazing! Food was good and the kids program was very nice - our kids loved it and it was nice to have a place for them to go so that we could have some time to ourselves :) One small annoyance was that everytime we walked through the lobby, we were approached by someone trying to get us to try something (a restaurant, or do an excursion or something). we learned to just say no thanks and keep walking, but it was everytime we walked through.
How was your experience working with us?
Working with travel leaders was very comforting - we were nervous but Anna was wonderful and always there to help ease our worries and explain everything we had questions on! thank you!!!

An Awesome Trip

Reviewed By MIke M - St Michael, MN | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean

Mike M
Agent Name: Anna

How was your trip?

The trip was awesome!!

Lots of sun and ocean time. We stayed at Barcelo Punta Cana. The grounds were immaculate and the pools were great. The food was OK. Lots of choices but not my favorite. The Japanese(Kyoto) restaurant was the best. Great food! We did the Pirates of the Caribbean excursion. This excursion was good for kids. We snorkeled, had a stingray encounter and swam with sharks. There was also a lunch provided. Punta Cana is a great destination to get away from the cold:)
How was your experience working with us?
Fast and easy. Always helpful when we had questions.

It was the best adventure ever!!

Reviewed By Marlene J - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Hi Anna--

I wanted to thank you so very much for all your help getting our Alaska adventure worked out. Everything went off without a hitch! Thank you also for the lovely steak dinner in the Crown Grill. It was a nice surprise! Here's a quick rundown of our adventures:

Michelle, Gerrene and I had a blast! It was so nice to be away from everything (mostly school) even if it was just a week of fantasy :). We loved our mini suite on the Grand Princess. Our steward, Rey, took good care of us. The room was just big enough for the three of us. We each took over our own area. It was just the right amount of activity so that Michelle did not get too tired out. We cruised the first two days so we got familiar with the ship and took advantage of some of the fun presentations onboard. We ate in the dining room for dinner each evening. That was a real treat and we liked having the flexibility of our dining time. We had lots of fresh seafood and steak.

We entered the Inside Passage on Mond
