With many options for ships, itineraries, and budgets, clients are able to find a cruise vacation that fits their criteria. From small river cruises through storybook Europe to the mega-ship experiences in the Caribbean to the bucket list adventure of Alaska by land and sea, there really is a cruise experience for everyone.

Why is cruising such a popular vacation choice?
Cruising is a fun experience that can easily be tailored for everyone's vacation preferences: - Solo travelers can engage with other passengers through a variety of meet-and-greet activities organized by the ship's crew, or simply enjoy a quiet vacation dotted with sightseeing and relaxing. - Couples can enjoy romantic dinners for two, dance the night away in one of the ship's night clubs, explore nature, and interact with other newlyweds and not-quite-so-newlywed through a variety of ship activities. - Families with children of all ages can utilize the kids' clubs on board (most cruise lines offer these services) or in-stateroom babysitting services so the adults can have special time, then regroup for family memory-making together. Cruises are also very popular for family reunions, multi-generational vacations, or milestone birthday celebrations! - Large groups can take advantage of conference rooms and facilities to organize special events, meetings, lectures, or hobby-based activities while simultaneously enjoying the ship and itinerary offerings. - Destination weddings are also possible on cruise ships - get married at sea, or make arrangements for a port wedding with your closest family and friends.

Food and drink on board cruise ships are both incredible - ships once known strictly for endless buffet are now also praised for intimate specialty dining restaurants, wine tastings, family-friendly parties and character meals, and more. With optional all-inclusive beverage packages available, along with champagne tastings, martini bars, coffee shops, and poolside service, sipping at sea has never been so extravagantly delicious.
Some clients plan a cruise itinerary with many sea days while others like the activity of many port visits. No matter the preference or itinerary, each passenger is able to arrange a vacation that is as relaxing or as busy as desired. Zip-line through the jungle in the morning, then enjoy a book and a nap by the pool in the afternoon…with cruising, anything is possible. Be lazy or be active - the choices are endless when planning a day at port or at sea! I am also happy to help guide clients in their excursion planning so they do not feel stressed about deciding how to spend their limited time at various ports.
Because each cruise port has so much to offer, passengers can experience many cultures and activities in one vacation. Sampling many destinations without unpacking and repacking is a perk of cruising that many clients love because they can see a variety of destinations within a short period of time.
Cruises are an outstanding value. When considering everything included in the cost per day, many clients are amazed at the type of vacation they can enjoy, even on a budget!
