Caribbean Specialist

I have a special love for the islands and am a beach bum at heart! I have worked in the travel industry since 1995, having visited many of the Caribbean islands. My husband and I had our own island wedding in Jamaica. I have a few favorites but Aruba, Turks & Caicos and the US Virgin Islands are at...

Aussie Specialist

G’day mate! My most recent trip to Australia included an overnight in Melbourne, a stop in Geelong to visit a brewery and vineyard and then we were off to the Outback for our multi-day Uluru (Ayers Rock) adventure. Next we spent a few days in Adelaide where we went bush-walking in a conservation park...

Customer Testimonials

The cruise was beyond anything we had imagined!

The Beach Boys had two phenomenal concerts and can not forget The Temptations! To quote the Righteous Brothers song from their 2 concerts, "We had the time of our lives." Giving us the wine and the truffles was so sweet and such a surprise! NCL also gave us a cake and we also were given other goodies! We are looking forward to next one!

We had an awesome time in Turks and Caicos!

The Somerset on Grace Bay was the perfect choice for our family. The Beaches brand seems to appeal to the majority of people as they are looking for activities and opportunities to socialize with others. We were after a low-key vacation after doing Disney earlier this spring and The Somerset provided exactly that. The resort was under capacity at the time so there was never competition for a seat at the pool or beach (for the 5 of us). The location was great in reference to downtown (we used the courtesy bikes) and restaurants. We were invited to a happy hour one evening and also enjoyed the beach dinner party on another. Our youngest enjoyed the movie night and craft activities provided by the kids club. The concierge, Berry, was an awesome resource for booking our snorkeling, ATV and Jet ski outings as well as suggestions for restaurants. This is definitely a resort we would recommend and we would also return for a future stay. Thanks for your help planning this trip!

Great Job!

I just thought that now, back from Portugal, I would provide you with some feedback. Everything went well! I was impressed with Epic Sana hotels in both locations. I had read that the Epic Sana Algarve might be a bit isolated, but there is good and bad to it. Portugal is densely populated so where it is located is fine. (Most people would probably want a car, and we did.) I just thought the hotels were outstanding. Great job!

WOW! We had a great time in Spain and Portugal!

I'd like to share my opinions on the hotels we stayed at so it may help you in the future when booking for other clients! 1. Hyatt Regency Barcelona Tower: Beautiful, large hotel. Our room was larger than expected (considering its Europe) and the bathroom was very spacious. 2. Chic and Basic Gravity Hotel: This hotel was my favorite of the trip. Every staff member I encountered went out of their way to say more than just a "hello". The rooms were nice but a standard size for Europe. 3. Porto Bay Marques: Another very cute hotel in a great location - we walked almost everywhere from the hotel. Very friendly staff who was helpful in recommending places to check out nearby. Thank you again for all of your help. We look forward to booking our next adventure with you!

We had a great time!

Just wanted to say thanks for helping us with our vacation. Everything was extremely smooth. We loved Dreams Onyx and the United flights were great! I’ll get with you whenever we’re ready to talk about our next trip!

We look forward to going on another DCL one day!!

We had a wonderful time from our hotel in Miami, until our return. Loved Disney Cruise Line. All 3 of us had an amazing time. We did a swim with dolphin excursion in Mexico and totally enjoyed it.

Couples Swept Away

My review on Couples Swept Away. We had an amazing time. We were so glad to get there, drinks were great, they served top shelf liquor. It was a true all inclusive. Snorkeling, Scuba diving, you name it. Food was a 5 out of 10, but we are not picky so it didn't bother us. The rooms are really wide open, Beautiful with all wood shutters with screens, and you have to shut them all, to have privacy from other rooms. You hear everything. Resort is beautiful, very clean. Across the street they have an amazing spa and wellness center! WOW!! All 27 acres of this place was beautiful. They do a catamaran cruise included every evening, we had so much fun on. Staff was great, very accommodating on everything. I would totally go back to a Couples. At Couples a lot of people are repeaters, most had been there 5, 8 and 10 times. Everyone seems very happy to return and I would agree. Thank you as always for your help.

We hadn't cruised in years and were fine with never cruising again... Until our last experience, which was fabulous. It was great to see my workaholic husband completely relax, fully engaged in everything the ship had to offer. I was right there with him. Our room was wonderful and in the PERFECT location. Mere steps from a cafe, the casino, the dining room, the lounge. ....I think we had the best room on the ship. Room 5594. We loved every minute on this delightfully intimate ship and we thank you for helping make this trip a wonderful reality for us. DoubleTree Bahia Mar was a fabulous hotel as well and we'd highly recommend it to anyone traveling to fort Lauderdale, with no hesitation whatsoever. So ..I think we'll definitely be cruising again before too long!!!

First time to Cancun and we loved it!!!

We had a great time in Cancun! The place was beautiful and the service was outstanding. Alfredo at the front desk upgraded us to a wraparound balcony room. If that was from you, thank you! ?? We feel that we may go back sometime in the near future. Lomas was excellent too. No issues whatsoever Once again, thank you for your outstanding service! Jody and Danny

Best Trip Experience!
Brandi is wonderful to work with. She's always there to answer my questions and makes great suggestions to make sure we get the best experience. On a recent cruise she made sure we had our excursions booked when we registered so that we didn't miss anything. She goes above and beyond!
