EUROPEAN RIVER CRUISE SPECIALIST

Cruising through the Rhine
Cruising through the Rhine

I have recently attended an ASTA RIVER CRUISE EXPO in the Netherlands visiting 12 different river cruise ships & learning in the differences each of these river cruise companies offer.  I loved learning about the ships in person & making new connections.  Currently I have sailed on six different river cruise companies and each company offers so many wonderful options to choose from.  I have a group booked this August sailing from Paris to Normandy so if you are interested, please let me know.  There is nothing like river cruising!


This past Christmas the spirit was so alive in Europe throughout my recent journey sailing on the Rhine River.  I enjoyed the culture brought to each city as well as the home made crafts, sounds of music song by children, home made goods, beautiful lights everything especially in Strasbourg, Switzerland and Germany.  If you want to experience one of my favorite times of the year, be sure to visit the Magic of the Christmas markets in Europe! 


I have personally experienced AMAWATERWAYS RIVER CRUISE twice once sailing through the Danube River as well as sailing on the Moselle River and Seine Rivers.   What a wonderful experience it was not only visiting wonderful places I have always dreamed of but also enjoying meeting fellow guests.   I truly believe river cruising provides guests the best travel experience possible!  I have also sailed on a VIKING RIVER CRUISE through the Romantic Rhine twice  and AVALON WATERWAYS through the Netherlands.  What an incredible journeys this was that will awaken, nourish and expand your mind. 


 Nothing compares to a River Cruise!  How else but on a river cruise can you journey into the heart of the world's greatest cities and most charming towns, discovering the true nature of the land and its people.  Immerse yourself in local culture, travel in comfort while enjoying excellent service and remarkable value designed with personal attention to every detail. 


Whether it is sailing on a VIKING RIVER CRUISE,,AMAWATERWAYS RIVER CRUISE, AVALON CRUISES, CRYSTAL RIVER CRUISES, TAUCK RIVER. UNIWORLD RIVER CRUISES or any of the numerous ocean cruise lines such REGENT, SILVER SEAS, VIRGIN VOYAGES, CELEBRITY, OCEANIA, DISNEY CRUISE LINE, or PRINCESS CRUISES just to mention a few, together we will find the perfect cruise vacation for your wants, needs and budget.  


 


THE WORLD IS YOURS TO DISCOVER, AND I BELIEVE I CAN TAKE YOU THERE!

The most unforgettable honeymoon!
Tina is an amazing travel agent! She was able to make a fantasy vacation of ours a dream come true! We can not recommend Tina enough if you are wanting to book a trip of a lifetime! Tina is very intelligent when it comes to the beautiful landmarks throughout all of Italy!

Always Wonderful with Tina!
I have booked several trips with Tina and the experience is always simple, stress-free and the trip is always wonderful! She is excellent at recommending resorts that fit what I am looking for and always provides a couple options with pros/cons to consider. I have only had an issue one time (not her fault) and she worked very quickly to resolve it. Tina also recommended destinations in Italy when we were planning our honeymoon, so her knowledge of fabulous places goes well beyond the Caribbean. I will keep booking through Tina and would recommend her to anyone!

Tina Kennedy responded:
Thank you Ashley for submitting a review on your recent trip celebrating your mom's birthday! It is always a pleasure booking trips for you! I enjoy recommending new resorts/destinations to clients after I have personally either seen them or experienced these destinations myself. Traveling leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller and after traveling extensively for over the past 35 years, do I have the stories to tell :). Thank you again for thinking of me!

Thank you Stephanie for taking the time to write a review and for such kind words, especially for being such a loyal customer. It is always a pleasure planning your groups to Mexico.

Italy - A trip of a lifetime!
Tina was thorough , patient and detail oriented while working with us to plan our trip. Then she met with me personally to deliver the travel documents (in a leather bound book) and took the time to review the details and give me LOTS of tips. The experiences Tina set up for us were so unique - not anything I could have found myself! And every day she planned was better than the last. It truly was a trip of a lifetime!
