My Background

I am a Virtuoso travel advisor based in Scottsdale, AZ, where I have been planning travel for 27 years. Before I became a travel advisor, my background was in technology.

I am a cruise specialist and personally love taking cruises around the world. Cruising lets you visit many different destinations, but you only have to unpack once.

I have visited around 25 countries. My favorite destinations include Euro, Alaska, South Pacific and US.

What I love most about cruising is convenient and different options.

Some of my favorite cruise itineraries are Alaska, Baltic and Hawaii. If you’re a first-time cruiser, I recommend you take a cruise to Alaska, Caribbean.

The cruise lines I love the most include RSSC, Crystal and Silversea.

I recommend spending extra time in the port cities of Stockholm, London and Paris before or after your cruises.

My clients would say I am detailed oriented, experience, knowledgeable and well organized from beginning to the end.

I am specialties on family travel, culinary & wine, destinations and special occasions.

I will host one Virtuoso Voyages sailings in June on 2018 for Alaska sailing.

I am a Pace Setter, I love to help clients’ travel dreams become a reality. As a Virtuoso travel advisor, I have access to our global network of hotels, tour operators, cruise lines, private guides, and more to create personalized, customized trips for you. If you book through me, I can access Virtuoso exclusive experiences, such as private shore excursions or behind-the-scenes tours, plus lots of hotel perks, such as room upgrades, spa and dining credits, and free breakfast. I look forward to hearing from you!

My husband Peter and I have worked with Laila Smith for the past 7 years. She is thorough, pleasant, knowledgeable and a great person to work with. She always has answers for all our questions and, if she does not know the answer, always researches and finds out. We have recommended Laila to many of our traveling friends and will continue to do so. Laila gets an A++ for the many times she has arranged our travels.

I have worked with Laila for a number of years. I followed her to Virtuoso from a prior travel service provider. I have been very happy with her suggestions, service and follow up when required. I have every intention of using her on my next travel.
