Diane, this was one of the best vacations I have been on.  Thank you for being in touch just enough to put me over the edge to actually book to make me 1 of 22 in our group.  The ship credit was a nice surprise and the seating arrangement at dinner went without a hitch.  Thank you again!

Expert friendly service. The best!

Diane works hard to know just what we want and how to get the best of everything at a good value. She gives such personal attention to all details and is so flexible when something gets cancelled or changed- she gets problems solved. I would (and will) go to the ends of the world with Diane.

Cruise to Alaska

Great! She offered us choices and followed through quickly with our selections. When we had trouble with the ship credits at final billing on board, she was able to remedy it with a phone call. My daughter and I loved our cruise and the ship Diane recommended was really first class.

A Classy Proactive Travel Agent

By: Merle

Diane was wonderful. This is the 6th or 7th (maybe 8th) trip she has done for us, and they have all be wonderful. What I like about her is that she is proactive, -- not just doing the things we ask, but recommending things that will enhance our trip. She has such vast experience that she has been at virtually every place we consider, so she knows what can be accomplished.

Diane was introduced by a member of the group. Since it was our first cruise and traveling with a large group , we had a lot of questions to ask. Through multiple emails and phone calls, she answered all the questions and handle the situations promptly and professionally.
