Cruise, Family & European Travel Specialist

I went on my first transatlantic flight at the age of 3 with my family, and I haven’t stopped traveling since! To date, I have traveled to over 35 countries around the world and have lived in five European countries as well. I speak German, and am always fascinated by the world’s cultures and sights.

I became a travel agent because I wanted to use my experience and passion to inspire others. I have the knowledge and tools to expertly prepare a vacation, and I love helping families, couples, and groups have life-changing adventures.

I specialize in Caribbean, European, and South Pacific cruises, resorts, and custom itineraries along with leisure vacations and all-inclusive stays in countless destinations. I work with a wide variety of people including families with kids, empty nesters, couples, and more.

Some of my favorite destinations include:

  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Taiwan
  • Belize
  • Curacao

I have years of experience with top cruise lines like Celebrity, Azamara, Viking, Disney, and Royal Caribbean. I know which cruises are best for certain occasions and groups, and I will match you with the perfect cruise line every time. I will simplify the booking process by researching and preparing your travel for you so you can relax and have an unforgettable vacation. I will also provide unique practical tips so you get the most out your trip. Whether it’s advice on time management, personalized activities, or great cultural excursions, I will help you create a customized trip tailored just for you!

I am very responsive and am always available to answer your questions and fulfill your requests. I am happy to assist you throughout the booking process and while you’re on vacation. 

One of my favorite vacations was a trip to Belize with my husband. We loved exploring the jungle for half our time there, and then relaxing at the beach for the second half. I love helping couples and families have relaxing and exciting adventures at top-notch resorts, on cruises, and while exploring new destinations. Vacations have brought my family closer together, and I want to help everyone experience the same magic at their dream destination.

My Travel Experiences

All-Inclusive Luxury in the Dominican Republic

My husband and I loved our recent stay at the luxurious Majestic Mirage Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. From the welcome we received from our butler Emilio to the special touches (e.g., rose-petal bubble bath on our private balcony!) throughout our stay, we had a wonderful time unwinding poolside and on the ...

Wonderful family trip!

Reviewed By Sherry - Chesapeake, VA | Traveled to Germany ~ Europe
Christina took the time to understand what kind of vacation we wanted and she was even willing to revise the plan until we were completely happy. The accommodations she chose for us were great and so were the pre-booked tours. She also offered some great suggestions for authentic local things to do in each city that we would never have discovered ourselves. I would definitely plan another trip through Christina!

A Great Vacation Experience

Reviewed By Dan - Charleston SC | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
We had a great experience working with Christina. She was very receptive to our requests, and she was very prompt working with us on our short notice vacation. She gave us multiple options within our price range and vacation desires. She made sure everything we would need for a smooth and successful trip was included in our package, but gave us options for splurging and making our trip even better, all at our discretion.

All questions we had for her were quickly and thoroughly replied to, leaving nothing uncertain or questionable. It was a pleasure working with Christina on our vacation and we look forward to doing it again sometime soon.
