Why do we specialize in cruises & European vacations?
Because we LOVE it and we want to share it with you! We became certified cruise and European Travel experts so we could better share our experiences. Cruising offers great value, wonderful cuisine, romance, great destinations, multiple activities for any age -- it is a floating resort that provides simplicity, luxury and fun! We have sailed on or inspected many cruise ships over the 19+ years we have been in business; and, we cruise once or more a year. Europe is a destination that combines history, culture, beauty, great food and wine, and fascinating people. It never disappoints and continues to make us want to go back for more. We are so hooked on every aspect of the old world, we visit Europe at least 2 to 3 times each year.
