My Background

The world is big and think there’s no better way to explore it than on a cruise!

I’ve been in the travel industry since 1990 when I bought a cruise-specialist travel agency and never looked back.

While I love promoting any kind of cruising, I have a soft spot for the Baltic, being born in Denmark and knowing Scandinavia very well.

Due to my background and expertise I sell many holidays to the Scandinavian countries.

These days I also book a lot of river cruises for my clients including Uniworld (I’ve sailed with them 5 times!) Viking, AmaWaterways, Tauck and more.

But France and Italy are also favourite destinations! I’m proud to say that I have Elite Cruise Counsellor as well as Luxury Cruise Certification with CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association), Commodore status with Cunard and Princess and am a Uniworld specialist.

As I speak Danish, some Swedish and Norwegian, I have a lot of clients from those countries.

More and more we are hosting groups on cruises, the largest group being 225 on a cruise to Alaska.

I’d love to discuss your next holiday afloat and make that travel dream come true!

We booked a round trip cruise with Princess to Hawaii, with Annemari Hermans of Imagine Cruise and Travel. Annemari took care of everything in a friendly, professional manner ,so all we had to do was enjoy the cruise, which we did. It was totally relaxing and enjoyable,no flights involved which was an added bonus. I would highly recommend booking trips through Annemari...we have already booked our next cruise with her and like the last time,she has taken care of everything. Thank you Annemari!

My Family has worked with Annemari for several years now and have ALWAYS got the best service and pricing available. Annemari bends over backwards to make it happen for us. Wherever she is, whether at her office or in her car, or even on vacation, she tends to our needs efficiently and immediately. We cruise about 6 times a year with varying numbers of family members and we feel blessed to have her working with us. She and her husband Jan are a great team and I highly recommend them to everyone. The Hermans will look after you and there won't be any problems.

A most excellent travel agent!!!

By: Davcee

Reviewed on: 25 Oct 2017

We have used her services now at least six times and there is a reason we keep coming back... her service is impeccable. She knows what she is doing, is very open to helping us decide what WE want to do, and excels at getting us the best deals (upgrades, price changes, etc.). We cannot recommend her more highly and have directed our own daughter to her for the planning of a honeymoon! No hesitation in recommending Annemari... and she is our agent for all our travel adventures....

Flights and Cruise with "Norwegian Sun"

By: Old Dane

Reviewed on: 03 Jan 2018

It is very easy to work with Annemari Hermans, she can find the flights that suits me best for the trip, and to the best price. I prefer shorter flights even though it means getting more starts and landings and I was pleased with the three flights that took me to Miami all on schedule so that went well. Also the flight home from Santiago via Toronto to Vancouver went well. The depart from Santiago was delayed but in Toronto Air Canada had a new boarding pas ready for me for a later flight to Vancouver, so no problems. This was my fourth cruise with "Norwegian Sun" well arranged by Annemari for the sailing from Miami to Santiago.

Annemari is a delight. Although, she is professional, Annemari serves her customers with patience, kindness and thoughtfulness. She is very concerned that each individual has a wonderful time on their respective vacations. Annemari always goes to bat for us, in an effort to get " more Bang for the buck ". I appreciate her honesty and her personal love for travel. I consider Annemari and her husband Jan to be the best. You will too, once you have used their services.

Cuba Trip

It is a pleasure to work with Annemari, she will find the flights for me that suits me the best and respects my wishes for having multiple flights for long distances, an arrival time in foreign lands early in a day so I have time to travel on to my destination, a departure time from the foreign country not too early in a day so I have time to travel to the airport by public transport, and she will even get me my preferred seats in each plane= window seats far back in the planes.
