Ocean & River Cruise Specialist

Ready to sail away? What's your style ... River cruise? Ocean cruise? No matter which I can help. Having traveled on more than 10 cruises, I have first hand knowledge on Avalon, Viking, Disney Cruise Line, Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruise Line, Princess Cruises ... an MORE!


My favorite part about cruising is that you get to see more of the world as you visit multiple destinations. There is so much to do in each port whether it's a guided tour or excursion or you explore the destination at your leisure.


What style do YOU prefer? Ocean cruising offer many tropical options with larger ports and on a river cruise you have the opportunity to explore small quaint towns. An ocean cruise has endless activities on board and while a river cruise ship offer plenty of things to do it offers a more intimate and relaxing vibe.


When you're ready to hop on board a river or ocean cruise give me a call!!

Our trip exceeded our expectations!
We worked with Karen several times to put together our trip. Karen did an excellent job finding hotel locations and pick-up and drop-off recommendations to get us to and from several locations.

A great time on Kauai
Karen did an excellent job setting up our Hawaii trip. Flight connections worked well. The condo on Kauai she selected far exceeded our expectations. The beach, the grounds, and accommodations were outstanding.

Wish We Could’ve Stayed Longer...
Karen was very easy to work with as we planned our Caribbean vacation. She presented us with excelleny options in our price range. She answered our questions promptly. She provided our travel documents in plenty of time before our trip, and sent us a friendly reminder about paying our final bill. The resort we stayed at (Excellence El Carmen) exceeded our expectations.
