Getaway to Mexico and stay forever. That is how it goes right? The Yucatan Peninsula and Riverira Maya is an incomparable stretch of paradise. The Margaritas and authentic tacos are the finishing touch. I have spent time in this area, with Tulum a...

Cruise Travel Agent Specialist

Cruises offer a unique vacation experience, presenting the perfect blend of relaxation, adventure, and luxury while you sail across the high seas. Immense floating resorts, cruises take you to multiple destinations while offering the convenience of unpacking just once. Here’s why opting for a cruise might be one of the best travel decisions you'll ever make:Multiple Destinations, One Journey A cruise vacation allows you to wake up in a new port or country almost every day. From the sun-kissed Caribbean islands to the scenic fjords of Norway or the historic Mediterranean ports, cruises cover a multitude of routes where the journey itself is part of the adventure.All-Inclusive Comfort Most cruises come with all-inclusive pricing, which often covers accommodation, round-the-clock dining, entertainment, and transportation between destinations. This means not having to worry about the logistics of meal planning or moving your luggage from one place to another.Amenities and Entertainment Onboard Cruise ships are well-known for their onboard offerings, including Broadway-style shows, casinos, movie theaters, and live music performances. Sprawling decks with pools, slides, and hot tubs ensure relaxation and fun in the sun, while luxurious spas offer pampering treatments and fitness centers help you stay active.Dining and Cuisine Dining on a cruise is a delight, with a variety of restaurants offering everything from buffet-style meals to fine dining experiences. Specialized eateries serve various cuisines including Italian, East Asian, and seafood. Some cruise lines even feature menus designed by celebrity chefs.Excursions and Explorations Shore excursions are a huge part of the cruise experience, allowing you to dive into the local culture, history, and activities at each port. Whether it's climbing a glacier in Alaska, snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef, or touring ancient ruins in Greece, there's an excursion for every interest.Family-Friendly Adventures A cruise is a perfect family getaway since most ships provide programs catered to children and teenagers. Kids' clubs, dedicated youth coordinators, and specially designed activities ensure that younger passengers are engaged and parents can relax.Cultural Immersion Luxury cruises often invite experts to give lectures on destinations, offering insights into the history and natural science of the areas visited. Evenings may highlight the region’s cultural music and dance, giving a taste of the local flavor without even leaving the ship.Voyaging in Tranquility For many, a cruise is a chance to disconnect (although WiFi is available), gaze out at the endless ocean, and indulge in the simplicity of maritime life. The tranquility of being at sea, combined with the ease of having every need met, creates a deeply relaxing holiday.Cruising is more than just a trip — it’s a mode of travel that turns the sea into your highway and the ship into your home away from home. Whether you are basking in the sun on deck, feasting on gourmet meals, discovering new lands, or dancing the night away, cruising offers a spectacular way to see the world.

Great Trip planned by an even Greater Travel Agent
Monique did a wonderful job planning a family trip for myself and my siblings to Williamsburg, VA. While I was already somewhat familiar with the area, she was able to provide us information on 'hidden gems' within the area that we were not aware of!
She was very thorough from the beginning to end of the trip by all the right questions to ensure she had all information needed to plan a wonderful family vacation. She was very responsive to all questions and did a great job of ensuring we were as prepared as possible for our long weekend. She made sure we were able to include fun activities for everyone (children and adults) as we visited Busch Gardens, Lounged out on the beach for a day, and we were even able to do a little retail therapy at the Tanger Outlets after a little wine tasting at the Williamsburg Winery (only the adults ;-) ). I cannot wait until my family is ready for another weekend retreat, as we will be reaching out to Monique for her wonderful services once again.

Her Help Made Me Cruise into Relaxation
I have become a frequent casino goer and have logged quite few cruises from it, but needed help on how to set myself up with getting to the ports successfully. Not only that, but reaching out to Monique was useful in knowing when to arrive for a cruise, where to stay, transportation services, documents, as well as what to pack so that I could enjoy myself at sea. She's great!

Gave Me Confidence
Monique was great, she made traveling to South Africa much less daunting than when I first approached on the idea of traveling there. She found tours and interest to fit my need in every direction, and definitely helped to make the most of my time. I learned so much about the travel process, became confident in my traveling solo, and would not have been able to complete this trip without Monique. Hands down the best!

The Most Stress Free Vacation Ever!
After a rough last year, I really needed a vacation but did not want to stress figuring out all the logistics for my wife and I. That's why we found this amazing agent to do it!My Wife and I shopped around, and felt instantly connected during our consult and never looked back. The time we had in Puerto Rico was relaxing, yet invigorating, with the perfect touch of unwind and adventure. Now we have decided to vacation every year and headed to Tulum, Mexico next. Guess whose planning it? You got it!

A Magical Agent for Our Magical Trip!
I have wanted to take my family to Disney for years, but we were never quite ready. I started seeing deals more frequently about Disney, so decided to reach out to an agent about it, just to see and learn some more about the parks, dinings, resorts, etc. On my own it was overwhelming! Monique was the best decision ever, helping understand the options and the deposit beauty- our family had the most magical time! From the planning to the tips and tricks, packing list, Genie+, it made it less stressful. I would highly recommend!
