Have a passport that expires at least 6 months after you plan to return (or you have a plan to get one). This is necessary for everyone traveling in your party, regardless of age.

what does it cost to work with you?
Here's the breakdown: - If you already know which cruise you want, or have up to 3 in mind that you want to compare, I will provide a complimentary quote and will book and service your cruise reservation at no charge. I do not charge booking fees. - If you would like me to do a search and provide cruise options based on your criteria, there is a $100 non-refundable research & planning deposit. The full deposit will be applied to your final balance but if you choose not to book with us, or you cancel in the future, the deposit will be retained as payment for services rendered. - If you would like me to design a custom itinerary for before, during and/or after your cruise, tailored specifically to your desires (no cookie cutter itineraries here!) the price for that service starts at $350 for up to 9 days of planning and $500 for 10+ days. This service includes:
Discovery call (if you wish)
Detailed proposal, customized to your preferences and delivered digitally (including an app you can download)
Two revisions, based on your feedback
Tips, restaurant and activity recommendations, city guides & troubleshooting advice
Access to exclusive industry rates and travel suppliers who don't work directly with consumers
Travel documents loaded into the app that can be accessed even if you are offline
Support before, during, and after the trip
CAN YOU HELP ME book my own AIR & HOTEL ARRANGEMENTS BEFORE/AFTER THE CRUISE?
I sure can! After you are booked, you will receive a guide to help you with your pre/post travel plans. It will provide you with enough information to book your own arrangements, but if you'd rather I research, design, and book a custom itinerary for you, I do offer that service for $50 per day of planning. There is no charge for me to book your air through the cruise line air program.
WILL I SAVE MONEY BY BOOKING WITH YOU?
It is very likely that you will save money (or get extra amenities) due to my partnerships with the cruise lines and my consortia. At the very least, you will pay the same price as booking direct but will receive a much higher level of service and expertise. You will also save yourself a ton of time and uncertainty.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I PLAN?
As far out as you can. This is usually the way to secure the best price and a prime cabin location. Cruise schedules can sometimes be released 2 years out (unlike air schedules, which are only available 330 days out). Last-minute deals are not something we see very often and you have to be SUPER flexible on your travel dates in order to nab one. These days, cruise prices are rising steadily so we recommend you lock it in ASAP.
