First-hand knowledge from extensive travels (including destinations in Africa, Alaska, Asia, Canada, the Caribbean, Central America, Europe, Hawaii and the South Pacific) help me in assisting my clients plan their travel. I have sailed on many types of ships: from large traditional cruise ships to small exploration ships; a clipper ship, a yacht and an all-suite luxury ship. I have enjoyed riverboat cruising – both in the United States and Europe. I help my clients find the right ship and destination for their special trip!
