My Background

My mission is to provide my clients with the best in class vacation by going the extra mile & paying attention to the details.

Originally born in Cuba, I immigrated with my family to the U. S. in the 1960's. I am an island girl at heart & lover of all things tropical. My travel passion started when my parents introduced me to different cultures & history through travelling.

I have been a travel consultant for 25 years. I have developed  relationships with hoteliers & cruise lines. These relationships are key to making my client's trip extraordinary. I specialize in Sun & Sand destinations, as well as, Cruising. I have traveled extensively in the Caribbean, Hawaii & Mexico.

My choice of cruise lines are Celebrity, Crystal, Oceania & Regent. I believe these cruise lines' philosophy of service matches my same level of service & dedication to the details.

Let me help your find your dream vacation, whether it is an African Safari or a Sandal's Beach Vacation. I am your personal travel partner!

Excellent Rooms Received thanks to Ileana

By: Don1

Reviewed on: 28 Aug 2015

We were upgraded to a larger suite on the first part of our Trip in Orlando at the Waldorf Astoria, but the the best was yet to come, we were upgraded to a Residential Apartment in the Towers of the Waldorf Astoria In New York City New York, wow a 1750 sq ft Hotel room. Fantastic stay, which meant that Ileana had done it again this year, as she has for the last 5+ years she has gotten us more that we could ever ask for.

The Very Best!

I am so lucky to have Ileana as my travel agent. i cannot imagine anyone better. Ileana has all the qualities you could wish for in a good travel agent: detail-oriented and organized, knowledgable and engaged. But most of all and what distinguishes Ileana from other travel agents I've worked with is, quite simply, Ileana genuinely cares. She cares as much as I do that that each trip is a success and a magical experience (which is the reason why we travel, I think). I am obsessive about planning trips--always reading up on the latest hotels and intriguing travel options. And there's no better partner in planning than Ileana. I can send her emails and follow-up requests at all times of the day and night, and Ileana is always kind, always the most helpful, and always succeeds in finding the best options. I would never plan a trip without Ileana. She is as essential to my travel planning as a passport!

Diligent service provided.

The hotel gave us a room with a non-existent view, not close tot the elevator as requested. I emailed Ileana and she immediately got us a room change -- to a larger room with a view close to the elevator. It is invaluable to have a travel agent who is so responsive and fast-acting. She cares about her clients and I always know she will take care of any blips along the way.

Ileana has been the best thing that has happened to us for planning our trips . She has planned a few other vacations for us and they went so smoothly. That is why we again reached out to her for a cruise to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday in January. We would call her at any time with the craziest questions and she always answered them in timely fashion and never made us feel anything but very important. I hope you can see how we feel about her and we plan on having her expertise and friendship in the future!

Ileana was there for us to anticipate and help with every detail. Ileana took care of airplane seat preferences, hotel and cruse ship bed arrangements, airport transfers, birthday recognitions, and more! She even found extra credits for our cruise ship account and provided a special shore excursion. We can vouch that Ileana will go the extra mile to ensure that your preferences are satisfied and that every available extra or enhancement is added to your experience! If you appreciate friendly and professional help with your travel plans, Ileana is the one. Cannot overstate how much having her there for us gave us peace of mind and a vacation that could not have been any better!

iLeana, Arianna & Tomoko : Great cruise to Alaska! The weather was great except in Juneau. Dah! We took the tour package of three for a one time cost and found that to be a great value. The entertainment was entertaining. The staff entertainment was awesome. The ship Solstice was a magnificent ship which we enjoyed immensely. Thanks for the help and the ship board credit plus tips.

Extraordinary Alaskan Cruise Experience

We sailed with friends aboard the Island Princess and Ileana managed all the cruise arrangements, shore excursions and transfers with great skill. She was also able to afford us some very nice on board credits that would not have been available to us had we booked direct. She was thorough, attentive and very responsive to emails and phone calls. As we grew close to our sailing date, she assured that we had everything we needed to simplify boarding. In addition, she mailed us our luggage tags and included clear plastic holders so the tags would be visible. Working with Ileana was a joy and we highly recommend her.

Ileana is the personification of excellence and professionalism. Her attention to detail allows us to plan a stress-free vacation, knowing that even the slightest detail will not be overlooked. The questions and concerns that did occur to us were quickly answered and explained, and in most cases, already anticipated and handled! If we had a question on options, we had plenty of choices to fit our preference. For example, when we asked about transfers, we were given rates for Viatour, taxis, and cruise line plans. Another plus was her hard work on our behalf to find every possible discount and benefit that was availabe to us. In short, we never had a concern that we might have missed out on an opportunity that would have helped us have a more enjoyable or value added vacation! Illeana is the best!

Illeana is always there to make sure your trip goes as planned. We always remember a couple years back when we were in London, Illeana called to check on the hotel, we were given the wrong room class and within a few minutes the front desk was calling to get us into the right room. We had a problem this time with the hotel on the second visit and Illeana worked her magic and we were very well taken care of.

Ileana is a truly wonderful travel advisor. I have worked with Ileana on multiple trips and each one is better than the next. My latest trip — a cruise combined with pre- and post-stays that we’re outside the normal ship offerings — once again proved why Ileana is so invaluable. She is thoughtful and kind, unfailingly upbeat and open to possibilities, and always on top of everything — what more could one ask for in a travel advisor?

Ileana was outstanding to work with, an agent that I would continue to use in the future and recommend to anyone.

Saved Again by Ileana

Ileana Weingart comes through on Mission Impossible again! We all appreciate attention to detail and follow up to ensure all requests have been handled to our complete satisfaction. But these sort of details are a given with Ileana. On our latest cruise vacation, we received a nice on-board credit gift, which is always well received, but basically SOP when working with Ileana. What made this a Mission Impossible (her second) was a personal issue at home that required my attention up to the point I was going to miss the boarding date of our cruise. After sending the rest of the family on ahead Ileana was able to book flights and a hotel minutes from the next port of call which was timed perfectly to have me ready to meet the ship. She also contacted the cruise line to let them know what had happened and sent me an email with documenting my permission to join the cruise at this port. All worked to perfection with mission accomplished and my vacation rescued!
