    The Group Advantage

  • Save money by traveling with a group
  • Comfort ~ being with others of the same interest and background
  • Many have traveled with us before
  • The “details” have been taken care of - for you


    • Why No Fees

    As a professional Travel Advisor .... I DO NOT CHARGE A FEE, but here is what Travel Advisor fees are typically for:

    Fees are not for bookings, they are for YOU. Fees are based on your Travel Advisor’s advice, expertise, recommendations, and valuable connections.

    Commissions, on the other hand, are for what the Travel Advisor does for the supplier.

    We can help you select the cruise that’s right for you .... such as: Active ~ Art & Handicraft ~ Culture & History ~ Culinary ~ Family ~ Photography ~ Romance ~ Slow, Peaceful, Relaxing, Journey ~ Wellness & Fitness.

    Our services are designed to save you time and money and keep you from getting ripped off.

    As a professional Travel Advisor, I DO NOT CHARGE A FEE!

    "WHY WE TRAVEL" by Pico Lyer ("SALON MAGAZINE" March 18, 2000)


    "[Travel] whirls you around, turns you upside down and stands everything you took for granted on its head.

    "We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world.   We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed.   And we travel, in essence to become young again - to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.

    "There is wisdom in turning as often as possible from the familiar to the unfamiliar; it keeps the mind nimble; it kills prejudice, and it fosters humor.

    "Romantic poets inaugurated an era of travel because they were great apostles of open eyes.   Buddhist monks are often vagabonds, in part because they believe in mindfulness.

    "And so if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it is a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed.

    "That is why the best trips, like the greatest loves, never really end."
