My Background

I have been in the travel business since the year 2000 but have been interested in this field since my teens.  My travel experiences have taken me on adventures of seeing and learning about the places of visit.  These journeys include history, architecture, the arts and the beaches in places like Turkey, Russia, Greece, Italy, Spain, Carribean and Bermuda.  Most importantly I love learning about the people and their tastes, traditions and stories.  I am detail oriented and will help with all your needs of travel.

The Best travel agent and agency !

By: Contessa Barbara

Reviewed on: 10 Nov 2014

This cruise was a last minute decision and planned so well with the guidance and help of my wonderful travel agent Toni ! She knows all my likes and dislikes from air travel, hotel type accommodations and cabin location on my favorite cruise line Crystal . The cruise ended approx. 25 minutes from the home of my travel agent , so we arranged to meet for dinner aboard Crystal Serenity on the last night before I disembarked to fly home. I was surprised by the owners of Northstar Cruises along with Toni who I have booked over 50 cruises with but never met in person ! They thanked me for my business and we had the best time connecting over dinner ! I know I am in wonderful hands for every trip and the difficulty of travel minimized thanks to the professional guidance,experience of Toni and the entire Northstar staff !

A Cruise Master

Recommended by a close friend and cruising veteran, we have been very pleased with Toni's assistance. She is responsive and accommodating and sends helpful reminders and tips (such as cabin placement) to insure we are prepared for every excursion, including the most recent to Antarctica. On a previous cruise my luggage was lost and Toni helped us to successfully process the forms via our Travel Insurance. We feel she is our ally.

Our trip was wonderful and Toni did a superb job planning each and every detail. She was so patient and helpful with any requests and was able to answer any concerns that we had. The Crystal Symphony was fabulous, such a terrific staff who took care of every need and was always cordial and happy to help. We appreciated the assistance of Virtuoso as well on the trip. Each port was beautiful and the history in that area is all over whelming. We can't wait to plan our next trip with Toni!

Once again Toni and the staff @ Northstar out did themselves ! The flights and prices Toni arranged for me were outstanding and an excellent value . The VIP Airport pickup in Istanbul was a bonus arrangement and the hotel Ritz with the bonus of an upgrade thank you to Virtuoso to Concierge Club level was greatly appreciated ! The associated tour company arrangements Sea Song was a wonderful added experience which I could not have done on my own. The cruise and transfers were smoothly arraigned by Toni and her staff and made my travel experience so more better . I highly recommend Toni and have at least 7 more cruises planned knowing they will be expertly handled by Toni and the entire wonderful professional staff at Northstar.

Toni has provided our family with superb service and advice for many years. She knows the industry and helps guide us through the often difficult process of selecting the right cruise line, cruise ship and itinerary. She knows the details of most of the ships and if not, she will obtain the required information from her colleagues. She is a pleasure to work with and promptly returns calls and emails -- which is a rarity today.

Once again Toni helped me plan the perfect vacation. This time we were off to Venice on a cruise to 3 Croatian ports of call, Montenegro and Slovenia. All of these were new places for us to visit. We loved them all and, as always, appreciated Toni's advice, preparation and follow through. After 15 years with Northstar, the gang knows us and what we want in a holiday. Toni has been instrumental in helping us plan and execute over a dozen special trips abroad. We look forward to many more years together. Thanks Toni!!
