Perfectly Planned Vacation
Reviewed on: 18 Jun 2016
Kathy was extremely helpful in setting up our cruise plans. We enjoyed the cruise very much. The best part was that Kathy checked the stateroom rates just a few weeks before our cruise and we were able to upgrade room types without paying more. Overall the vacation was a great success and Kathy did a great job helping us plan.
She is FANTASTIC!!!!

Kathy is WONDERFUL!! Very helpful and always checking for the best price and deals for my family. Made special accommodations when necessary, and made special arrangements for celebrations. She is polite, and a pleasure to work with and we will definitely continue to work with her.😊
Kathy is a joy to work with!

Kathy is very honest and sincere. I trust her completely; not only because she is honest, but because of her knowledge and experience in the cruise line industry. I wouldn't work with anyone else, and feel totally comfortable recommending her and Odyssey Travel to my friends and family!

Good. She was very helpful to us as we were first time cruise travelers. She was able to answer all our question.

Kathy went over and above to make arrangements for our trip. At one point she even traveled across the state of Florida to meet with our group. She made sure we got the itinerary we wanted, which wasn't easy with a group of six, and made sure we all had cruise credits which was a nice savings for all the travelers. Entered all our credit information separately which was four different accounts so it was easy to settle up in the end. She had herself previously taken this trip so was very knowledgeable about our ports. All and all we all had a wonderful time, and it was truly a trip of a life time. Thank you Kathy for all your help and guidance.

We started the planning for our cruise with Kathy. She made all of the reservations for the ship and everything went smoothly When it came time to get hotel rooms in Venice and Rome, I volunteered to find the hotels for the group. I found a hotel in each city and sent them to Kathy to make the reservations. She had time to make the reservation in Rome, but was leaving to go on a cruise of her own and suggested that I make the reservation in Venice, which I did. When she returned, I sent her the reservation confirmation for Venice, and that's when the difficulty started. She was extremely upset that she didn't get credit for the reservation and was , very frankly, quite rude to me in her emails. One of our other travel companions had a very long conversation with Kathy, who was very reluctant to provide any other planning assistance for our cruise, saying on a number of occasions, "have Bob do it". We ended up making all of our shore excursion plans with no help from Kathy.

I have booked with Kathy for years and let me tell you I feel she is the BEST!! We are a family of 10, and she goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is happy. The adults are pleased with their rooms and services and the children are pleased with what the boat has to offer. She makes vacationing very simple for you
