I live in the beautiful Fraser Valley of BC and am so fortunate to have 2 cruise ports so close in Vancouver and Seattle! I acquired a taste for cruising in my early 20s when my mom took me on a cruise to Alaska and have since been on 3 more Alaska cruises. I have been on many other cruises and ships during my Travel Agent years as well. When I was 26 I backpacked around Europe on my own and the desire to travel and see the world stuck! I have travelled through many places including England, Scotland, France, Austria, Italy, The Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Mexico, all over the US including 10 times to Las Vegas and more.

I choose cruising for my own holidays most of the time, I enjoy the service and food cruises offer and love seeing many destinations in one trip.

I was always helping friends plan their vacations in my spare time, so in 2009 the logical step was to start doing it as a business.

Education and updated knowledge on everything travel is highly important to me, I attend cruise conferences, supplier training and immerse myself in all the online courses I can find. I take cruise ship tours often and have obtained my Accredited cruise counsellor and luxury cruise specialist designations.

I specialize in cruises and group cruises but I can put together your dream vacation no matter what your preferred style of travel is;

  • Cruises
  • Group Cruises
  • Honeymoons
  • Destination weddings
  • All Inclusive
  • Land based tours anywhere in the world
  • Flights including complication itineraries
  • Family trips to Disneyworld
  • Golf packages
  • Europe packages
