She's here to share her love of sailing and some great deals we have going for you this month on our partner cruise lines. Make sure to read to the end for those.

I blame my mother for introducing me to cruising. I remember going into a travel agent’s office, when she wanted to plan a cruise for an anniversary trip. Even though I wasn’t going on the trip, I kept that brochure and had the ship layout memorized within hours. When they came back from their trip, I inundated her with questions about the whole experience, and couldn’t wait until I got to go on a ship for myself.

Thirty years and over a dozen cruises later, I still love cruising for so many reasons. Exploring new ships is always exciting, as each line and each ship has something unique to offer their guests. The convenience of unpacking once and waking up to a different destination every day allows me to enjoy my vacation to the fullest. Cruising is also be a great way to sample different destinations in a relaxing manner and discover places that I may want to return to in the future.

In addition to the practical benefits of cruising, there is also something special about being out on the open sea, enjoying the fresh air and the beautiful views. It can be a very relaxing and rejuvenating experience. I just love it.

There is truly something for everyone on a cruise and a cruise line for every preference. From active to relaxed, budget to uber-luxe, popular destinations to small exotic ports, there is a cruise line to suit anyone.

Whether you're interested in relaxing by the pool, trying new foods, learning about different cultures, or trying new activities like rock climbing or zip-lining, I would love to help match you to the best cruise and itinerary for you!
