My first taste of travel came as a child with parents who believed that travel should not only fun but that it could be educational as well. Loving travel and learning about different peoples, places and things makes my job the best job in the world!
I have over 30 years experience in the travel industry and I have enjoyed seeing and discovering the world by ship and by land. My years in the travel industry have allowed me to get to know and work with many cruise line and tour company executives and their counterparts enabling me to handle any problem that might arise on a cruise or land tour.
The many specialist certifications I have completed allow me to be able to suggest experiences to wonderful destinations. I have planned and sailed with groups as small as 6 and as large as several hundred. Groups, whether large or small offer me the opportunity to work and create the experiences that will be memorable and enjoyable. My knowledge of accessible travelers' needs allows me to guide my clients so they have the best experiences available.
I have been to all 7 continents, most recently Antarctica. After going on more than 106 cruises, I have gained the experience and knowledge to help me match the best cruise line and ship to meet the expectations and desires of my clients. I've also discovered the beautiful cities of Europe by river boat and on land tours. My experience enables me to select destinations based on what I feel will create the most memorable of vacations.
Do you want to see the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx? Take in the wonder that is the Taj Mahal? Take a toboggan ride down the streets of Madeira? Ride an elephant in Bali? Have a true Neapolitan pizza at a local restaurant in Naples, Italy, the birthplace of pizza? Working together I can make your dreams a reality. I really do "sell the world".
Marilyn worked hard to get us isle seats like we really wanted. She talked to us many times about the trip and made sure that we under stood everything and made sure it was what we wanted. She is very pleasant and fun to work with. We would commend using her if you get a chance. I know we will always use Marilyn when we travel.
