Cunard's Luxurious Queen Elizabeth in Europe
The world is calling you to discover it. From the remotest undiscovered corners, rich with hidden secrets and natural treasures, to a rediscovery of destinations you thought you knew, full of unique twists and rewards, luxury cruises offer discerning travelers like you both authentic discoveries and the simplest of pleasures. Combining the best for both the adventurous soul and the discerning palate, your luxury cruise guarantees exclusive access, limitless options, and the surprising moments of a lifetime that transform a vacation from the routine to the life changing.
Every luxury cruise is different, and some are better suited to your interests and preferences than others. While the internet is full of popularity contests, self-appointed experts, and paid puff pieces masquerading as reviews, I bring a different perspective to luxury cruising. As a veteran of over twenty ocean and river cruises worldwide, on a wide variety of cruise lines, I can help you sift through the clutter and choose the right cruise for you – not for someone else. I’m also a skilled value interpreter, assisting you with sorting through the overwhelming array of promotions in the marketplace, to ensure that you not only choose the right cruise, but receive good value for your cruise dollar.
Are you interested in enjoying refined, personalized service while you travel? A plethora of the right inclusions, outstanding cuisine, and the best itineraries – including smaller, off-the-beaten path destinations with authentic experiences around every corner? Looking to combine an ocean cruise with a river cruise for a true destination immersion, or to plan pre- and post-cruise land arrangements that rival the quality of your cruise? Contact me to schedule a complimentary planning consultation, and we’ll get started choosing the right option for you!
