If you have booked with a travel agent and something goes wrong, you are not a “small fish in a big pond” – you have someone with influence to advocate for you. As a member of Travel Leaders, the largest network of travel agencies in North America, we enjoy great support from our travel partners.

Great Value 

The biggest misconception about using a travel agent is that it will cost more. However, we offer a price that is the same or lower than what is available directly from the cruise line or other travel supplier, often with exclusive extras for our clients.

Expert knowledge & advice 

When it comes to cruises, we’re proud to say we’re know-it-alls. Cruise vacations are our specialty – there’s nothing about cruises that we don’t understand thoroughly and deal with daily. We are able to recommend which ships and destinations are right for you. We have the answers to the questions you probably wouldn’t even think to ask so you can be confident that your vacation will be perfectly planned, hassle-free, and filled with moments you’ll never forget, with no unpleasant surprises. Not only can we book your cruise, often with additional amenities, but we can arrange your air, transfers, excursions, hotels and packages, and travel insurance. We efficiently manage all of the travel-planning details.

Personal Experience 

We can make recommendations based on our personal experience. Our travel advisors have sailed on over 90 cruises on various cruise lines to different destinations. We’ve also toured many ships so we’ve had a firsthand look at many of the available choices.  And if we haven’t personally ‘been there and done that’ then the odds are excellent that we’ve had a client that has.
