Luxury Cruising

Regent SS Explorer
Regent SS Explorer

I had an opportunity to take an inaugural cruise on the Regent SS Explorer, the most luxurious ship in the world. The ship was beautiful from the restaurants, to the dining rooms and the suites. The staff on board were extremely friendly and helpful and made all of us feel extremely relaxed. The Regent Explorer is an all-inclusive cruise ship, where your shore excursions and all of your beverages are included. You did not have to be concerned about what size of a bill you would receive at the end of the cruise, because there was not one. There would have been charges if we had used the spa, shopped in the boutiques or frequented the casino. We were able to sample the food in the buffet and bar cafe at lunch time and in the evening we savored the meals in the Prime 7 and Compass Rose Restaurants. These excellent meals were paired with wonderful wine choices in a business casual setting. We had a fabulous experience on the Explorer and I know that anyone who sails with Regent will experience the same excellent service as we had. Let me know how I can assist you in setting up an unforgettable cruise experience.

A fabulous trip
LaVonne spent lots of time with me helping me plan our trip. She was very patient and gave good advice when I was confused or unsure of something. I had a small problem with a reservation while in Scotland. I emailed LaVonne, and she took care of it for me. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.

Great trip to Switzerland
We enjoyed the trip. As far as moving around to different seats on the bus, most people didn't think that should have been a big deal.

Retirement Celebration - Royal Carribean Cruise
This was our first trip to Italy and it gave us comfort working with a travel agent and agency just in case there were any issues. She provided valuable information as we were making our plans.
