Why you should use me to plan your next vacation
I have been in the cruise business since 1990 and traveled the world. My favorite city is Paris and my favorite type of travel is Cruising. I have sailed on 77 cruises. I have been on Holland America Line, Princess, Carnival, NCL, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Costa. I took my very first cruise Thanksgiving 1962 on a 12-night cruise on Holland America Line’s Nieuw Amsterdam. The cruise ship I have sailed on the most is the original Rotterdam from 1958 for a total of 8 times.
I am a graduate of Royal Caribbean’s WOW University, Celebrity’s 5 Star Academy, Azamara Club Academy, Princess Commodore, Cunard Commodore as well as AMAWaterways, Globus Family of Brands, Emerald Waterways, Scenic Cruises as well as CLIA Certified. I accomplished ACC, MCC, ECC and LCS distinction.
I have also taken training with some land resorts as well from Sandals/ Beaches and Couples Resorts to Playa Resorts to name a few.
