Our first cruise...beyond our expectations
This was our first cruise and we were clueless as to how to proceed with our plans. JoAnn was our life saver. From the first time we met with her until we sailed, she was our trip planner, advocate and mentor. From the time we arrived at MSP airport throughout our Vancouver arrival, transfers to the cruise line, boarding the ship, all on shore excursions and the final train ride into Anchorage and transfers back to the Anchorage airport and then home our trip was flawless. Because this was our first cruise we had numerous questions and concerns and JoAnn was extremely patient with us and basically explained how the entire process works and offered many options and suggestions. She was available to us whenever we needed to meet with her or contact her by phone. She kept us informed of any flight changes and time restrictions so we had ample time to make all of our connections. The call to wish us a good trip and the follow-up call when we returned were very special. Thank you

JoAnn Plans Our Best and First Cruise
JoAnn is friendly and efficient. She met with us several times to plan our Alaskan cruise.
She gave several options choosing a ship line. She answered our many questions. She showed us options like choosing a beverage package and specialty meals package. She was knowledgeable about shore excursions.
She was patient with us about our indecision on choosing something. JoAnn is the most knowledgeable travel agent we've ever worked with. The cruise came off with no problems. I would definitely go back to JoAnn to plan my next trip/cruise. She scheduled flights. She did it ALL. What a caring person.
This gal is the BEST!

Travel Agent JoAnn was our savior!
My sister and I traveled to Venice, Italy for a Greek Island Cruise in August, 2017. JoAnn made reservations for us with excellent results: transfer from airport to Venice hotel, hotel in Venice near ship port, and our Greek Island Cruise Ship. However, even more impressive was how JoAnn helped us in our time of need during a misadventure on our cruise, causing us to miss our ship. My sister tripped with a Coke bottle in her hand in a gift shop in Corfu, Greece and sustained a large laceration in her left palm. After an ambulance ride and stitches, they refused to release her because of her blood work. My sister has been fighting cancer for 10 years and has some chronic blood count issues. JoAnn was our shining star, navigating us through it all: making our plane reservations, giving me our travel insurance information, advising us in our challenging predicament. We were able to get back on the ship and enjoy the rest of our fabulous vacation. Thank you, JoAnn!

Beauty/Adventure--JoAnn helps/back on missed ship
My sister and I were in the middle of deciding when,where to take a cruise for my 60th bday. Met with JoAnn -she gave me info,brochures. We decided NCL for Greek cruise start in Venice. JoAnn answered all our questions thoughtfully. I especially liked if she did not know she was willing to pick up the phone and check.---we also changed type of room to balcony for one of us with her--no prob--my sister was only a few rooms away-this was late in game. JoAnn arranged van service to/from Venice. Loved the little hotel on canal in Venice she booked for us and yet a good price. We received all our documents etc needed. Did not have to wait for email responses,or to reach her.
--important in Corfu!!!! I tripped,fell on broken coke bottle with hand,needed stitches hospital.. We called her from Greece-she arranged plane reservations next day -- got to Santoriniand BACK ON BOAT AGAIN!! Recently visited her,asked her about remote beach in Greece--she said sure--I'll check on it. Going back.
