South Pacific Cruise

Cruising is a fantastic option for those not sure which island to stay a week or month at, as not every destination is created equal for all personalities.  So for example if you’re not sure which island is best suited to your character, then I suggest either boarding the Paul Gauguin ship which offers amazing itineraries to the South Pacific, such as 7 nts Tahiti and Society Islands or my favorite – Cook Islands/Society Island sailing, this offers you full day in Cook islands and Bora Bora, overnight in Moorea and Tahiti, so you can explore on your own, visit the historic sites, or enjoy watching the whales as you sail.
I have over 15 years of travel experience with destination experience that goes beyond just the basic travel book knowledge.  I have intimate knowledge of the places you want to go, the things you want to do and the ships you want to travel on.  As an insider, I’ll provide you with the itinerary to match your needs.  Then add with tours provide the local spice and culture to make you feel welcomed.  So, when it comes to Inside Passage, I know all the lines that sail to Alaska, which offer the best family options, which are the smallest ships, and which ones have the most luxurious experience, because I make an effort to travel on a different provider every time I go.  When choosing a cruise, it’s that inside information about the key differences from line to line that will make your experience amazing instead of just good.

River Cruises

What I like the most about river cruising is the unique and boutique experience that they have to offer.  They have all of the benefits of a larger ocean going cruise ship, but with a more intimate feel.  Also the best part about river cruising is that you pull up to a city and step off the ship and you are there! Since rivers were the artery for trade, culture and communication throughout many parts of the world, therefor towns and major cities were built right up to the river. You can stay in town or go back the ship easily.
While having over 15 years of Travel Counselor experiences, which include destination experience that goes beyond just the basic travel book knowledge.  I have been on several river cruises in France, Germany and Amsterdam.  I love being able to immerse myself in the culture of a country by going to several unique cities. Each city has its flavor and national identity. And the bonus that makes this all so great is that you don’t have to unpack again once you board the ship! You get daily tours, there are extra tours available, the food is amazing and every year they include more and more amenities. It is so great to get to know the shipboard staff too. It adds to the overall quality of service and fun. They get to know you; they treat you like valued guests and not someone just passing through. You feel the excitement, the awe, as everyone is awaiting their adventure.  As an insider, I’ll provide you with the itinerary to match your needs.
As someone who has been on several river cruises, I can recommend the best companies, best ships and offer tips for maximizing the experience. I can put together an incredible itinerary to match your budget and your need for comfort or luxury.  Whether you want to enjoy walking through beautiful cities or enjoying private tour of your destination port of call, I will be able to arrange everything your heart desires.  I can help you chose which tours will provide you with your best benefit and receiving the most experience.  I do my best to make your trip all about you and your traveling needs, without breaking the bank.

Australia

I love exploring the off the beaten path of Australia.  I take every opportunity to meet and get to know the locals and see how they live and what makes their town special.  Meeting strangers and becoming friends is easy in Australia, with the friendly and outgoing nature of the locals  and exploring the Great Barrier Reef, horseback riding in the Daintree Forest, and even white water rafting cannot be beat.
I have over 15 years of experience in planning customized vacations for my clients.  Having traveling and experienced the destination with local guides, taking cruises and participation in Familiarization trips gives me a leading edge in other specialists. Beyond my personal exploration and experience with Australia, I have completed their destination specialist program I love to know my clients received the trip of a life time thanks to my help and experience, and I take pride in building relationships to last a life time.

Hawaii Cruises

For Hawaii, many want to see as much as they want and not be locked into one island, as the challenging cost of fuel and food rises, cruising has become popular as you have dining options and activities for adults and children.  You have a full day in each port and that gives one plenty of time to sit on the beach, take a tour of the island, etc.
With 15 years of travel experience and destination experience that goes beyond just the basic travel book knowledge.  I have intimate knowledge of the Hawaiian Islands, know things you will want to do and which ships you want to sail. As many veterans cruisers know, getting on board a ship and sailing around to destinations around the world is amazing, from the moment you step on board the liner.  I want you to start getting excited and looking forward to your next Hawaiian cruise.
With intimate knowledge of the places you want to go, the things you want to do and the ships you want to travel on. As an insider, I’ll provide you with the itinerary to match your needs.

Northern Europe Cruise

Cruising is a fantastic choice for those not sure of which Northern Europe destination they would like to stay a week or month at, as not every destination is created equal for all personalities.  So for example if you’re not sure which Northern Europe city is best suited to your character, then I suggest boarding the Silversea for a luxurious small ship experience with this cruise line greater ability to overnight and stay longer in each port.  The great option about Silversea is their all-inclusive travel with no bar tab, their fantastic butler service in all categories.  Let’s not forget their luxury spa center for your massage.  One thing to remember none of their ships include a casino.  So whether you want to stay on board or disembark the ship and explore, Silversea butler will be guide to your day to what they offer.
