Excellent service

Patty did a wonderful job in planning our trip to Europe. Her suggestion to use Travel Bound to pick us up at the airport, book our hotel, and transport us to our ship was just what we needed to make our trip complete. We will use her services again and recommend her to our friends. We've already used her to book another cruise.

Patty has helped us with cruise after cruise, & she always gives us great tips & information. She shows us choices of cabins available (we need accessible) & lets us know what's good about each one. We always know she is just a phone call or E mail away for planning!

enjoyed the trip. Especially like Holland American because they have daily Mass. For some reason they decided my son and' I who were using the same stateroom. were married. Most embarrassing for both of us. Also, I don't think they knew this was my fourth cruise on Holland American because I was not aware of any Mariner benefits. I recommend you,Patti, and the Holland American line frequently.

Thanks to Patty, our Disney Cruise was a big success. Despite our booking in October for a December cruise, she was able to secure great rooms for us. At the time we booked, early seating was full. Patty put us on the waiting list and upon arrival we were assigned to early seating, which made the trip much more fun for our grandchildren. We so appreciate her help in making the trip a great experience for all of us.

Her help secured a great cabin which was conveniently located.    When online info was needed, she guided us through the process to make it easier.   We knew she was just a phone call or E mail away during all our months of planning.    We wouldn't try booking a cruise without her help!

Mrs Shelley planned a round-trip from Corpus Christi to Bangkok, March 24 through April 14, 2014.  She found a very reasonable airfare for me.  I thought that some of the connections were a little tight, but they were not.  I made all of them, and did not spend a lot of time in airports.  She was very knowledgeable about all of the possibilities, and was very patient with me as we went over them and I made up my mind.Very nice and very good.  I already have recommended her to someone else.

I went on a 60th Birthday Girl's cruise that Patty helped plan! It was great with perfect cabins, food and weather! Patti had planned our family trip a couple of years back and it went very well! I look forward to having her plan future trips for me and my husband. Thank you Patty!

Patty Shelley did an excellent job for us on our recent Disney Cruise. She was able to get adjoining rooms for our family (they were going fast) and kept after Disney to get early seating at dinner (important for little kids). It was a great trip and everything went very smoothly. We will definitely use Patty for our future trips. She always does a good job for us.

I had never been to Chicago, but as usual Mrs Shelley got me a good flight and pleasant hotel with my particular requests, such as a breakfast buffet. Everything went well.

We found a cruise on the internet. Patty advised us as to date, cabin selection, and cruise price. She did a wonderful job for us and booked it very quickly. She also made sure we received the Virtuoso benefit. We highly recommend her.
