Travel Advisor

I craft luxury cruise experiences for well-traveled retirees, empty nesters, and discerning professionals seeking cultural enrichment.

My invitation: experience the perfect balance of destination exploration and relaxation on your travels. You want to delve into a new destination or rediscover a favorite one, but you also want to come back from your journey feeling recharged, refreshed, and reconnected. A well-planned luxury cruise journey delivers just that, especially when the planning is enjoyable from the very beginning.

Some of my favorite travel destinations include:

  • Mediterranean
  • Caribbean
  • Pacific and Polynesia - especially The Islands of Tahiti
  • Europe - especially Italy, Germany, France, Czech Republic

For luxury ocean cruises and river cruises, I partner with top premium cruise lines such as:

  • AmaWaterways
  • Crystal Cruises
  • Cunard Line
  • Explora Journeys
  • Oceania Cruises
  • Paul Gauguin Cruises
  • Regent Seven Seas Cruises
  • Ritz Carlton Yacht Collection
  • Riverside Cruises
  • Seabourn Cruise Line
  • Silversea Cruises
  • Tauck
  • Uniworld River Cruises
  • Viking Ocean Cruises
  • Viking River Cruises

I simplify the entire planning, booking, and travel process for you by researching and preparing your travel so you can have an unforgettable journey. I take great care in ensuring you receive the best value, specialized service, and an exceptional travel experience from start to finish.

With a professional background in international relations, a Ph.D. in German, and having lived abroad in multiple countries, I use my travel expertise and travel partner connections to create seamless, inspiring luxury cruise journeys. I excel at taking care of the details for a smooth journey every step of the way.

My process is simple:

  • Connect: We chat on a complimentary consultation call to talk about your travel style and the cruise travel you're dreaming of.
  • Plan: I research and present my recommendations for your ideal cruise. I'll then create a custom courtesy hold for you to review, and we’ll refine or change to ensure it is just right for you.
  • Book: Sit back and relax while I professionally book your reservations. As your journey approaches, I'll keep in touch with details about travel insurance, shore excursions, dining options, and optional pre- or post-cruise travel planning.
  • Travel: Embark on your luxury cruise, creating travel memories to last a lifetime.

So whether you’re dreaming of exploring ancient temples while drifting down the Mekong, (re-)discovering the romance of Europe, or simply reconnecting with your loved ones while on a relaxing getaway…I am here to help you make the most out of your vacation time so you can enjoy a truly memorable cruise journey, stress-free and with peace of mind.
