 This month I attended a luxury and exotic travel training seminar. To say that there is a ship, yacht, resort, or tour for everyone is an understatement. Luxury travel isn't as far off as you think. If you compare a contemporary cruise line price plus the added amenities you pay for...gratuities, speciality dining, drink package, shore excursions, transfers, and even the price of a luxury cruise you find that the price isn't too far off and you get quality service with less passengers aboard. Seems like a no brainer to me.

At this seminar I met with my business partners from UnCruise, Crystal Cruises, AmaWaterways, African Travel, Oceania, Uniworld, Sandals, Disney, Scenic, Ponant, Regent Seven Seas, G Adventures, and more. These business partners are my direct contact (not a customer service phone line) for all my questions and needs. They help get the best group deals, request upgrades or amenities, and even solve travel issues. Together we work as a team for you!  

Trip Requests

These past few weeks have been full of exciting trip planning. Here are just a few of the requests I received: 

Honeymoon in Jamaica- This couple picked Couples Tower Isle in Ocho Rios, Jamaica an All-Inclusive Adults only luxury resort! Scuba diving is even included for free if certified or a small fee if they want to become certified! 

Family Disney Vacation- Mom and Dad are the only ones that know that their three little girls are getting a Disney World vacation for Christmas this year. I would love to be a fly on the wall when they open that gift. 

River Cruise in Europe- This couple wants to do something big for the husband's 50th birthday. Viking River Cruise it is! 

Honeymoon in Europe- This couple wants to visit Amsterdam, Paris, and London. They are going to have the most amazing two week honeymoon!
