Do you know what's the main difference between Ocean Cruise and River Cruise?  Can I share with you more?  Either Ocean and River Cruise can potentially take you to any part of the world.


Why cruising? With cruising, you only need to pack once and have the opportunity to explore the ports at your own pace!  Or you could be led by excursion guides!  


Each cruise line is designed to serve a defined population, as a specialist with many cruise lines, I am ready and qualified to recommend the perfect itinerary that is guaranteed to please you!  


Cruise duration can start as short as 3 days to as long as 6 months.  


Travel is about connecting people and places.  What I love the most is making new friends both onboard the ships or on land with the local guides from all around the world, many of whom I have continued to stay in touch with.

UK, Scotland & Ireland 2018
This was my first trip alone and Katherine was very helpful in easing both mine and my parents stress and ensuring that I had the best time by making sure all the little things were checked off. She regularly checked in with me while on my trip to make sure it was going smoothly and was genuinely interested in where I went and what we did that day and answered multiple questions in the days leading up to departure.

A week in paradise- “Ya mon-Jamaica is where its a
Katherine was over the top when it came to excellence . She was very attentive to everyones needs (there were 10 of us) and strived to accommodate everyones special requests. She sent us on our way with a travel guide and a few extra treats, kept in touch with us during our stay at one of her recommended resorts- the Luxury Grand Bahai Principe, and followed up after the vacation to ensure everything went as planned. Excellent service-Thank you Katherine
