My Background

Having lived and worked abroad in the travel industry  for many years I have been concentrating on the cruise world - oceans and rivers - since 1992.

I truly believe there is a cruise for everyone, from small yacht-style to mega family ships on waterways worldwide. I love the ability to visit exotic and otherwise inaccessible destinations by ship. 

I have experienced everything from Tahiti to Antarctica by expedition ship and enjoy sharing my experience and expertise with new clients.

I have travelled extensively throughout Europe, the Americas, China and South-east Asia by land as well as by sea and riverboat. So just ask me and I'll share my tips on what to avoid, what to see and what to do world-wide to make your vacation dreams come true!

Another great cruise arranged by North. He is easy to deal with and understands what we expect from a cruise. North is the best and we book at least one cruise per year

For many years my husband and I have taken cruises, 36 cruises, and North was always ready to advise us about all of them. We did enjoyed all of them very much.

North has done a great job for us.

My husband and I are newly retired (3 years) and have enjoyed traveling since. This past year we have gone on 3 cruises and have enjoyed each of them. Thanks North.

Millenium Cruise Sept Oct 2014

This fellow has been handling cruise arrangements for us for YEARS. At least 6 cruises from HAL, to Celebrity, to Norwegian and perhaps a Princess as well. The itinerays are complete with no hidden EXTRA charges. I recommend this gentleman to anyone interested in travelling. In fact I have passed his contact info along to dozens of fellow travellers and friends and family members thru the years. He is only a phone call or an email away and we are bowled over by his level of service and helpfullness, I wish we lived in Vancouver and not over here on the island so we could take trips more often. His weekly news letters have my mouth watering almost every week, after seeing one of his selections that i would LOVE TO TAKE. If anyone ever needs a testimonial or a further explanation on our high level of satisfaction with all aspects of his dedicated work for us, they just need to ask.

North has helped me out with two cruises. I found his advice to be invaluable. He knows what he is talking about. I couldn't be happier with the level of service he provides. He's a keeper.

This was the 3rd if not 4th cruise we have had North Munro help us plan. This trip we required return air fare as it was not included in our cruise of choice & we also decided to spend a couple of days pre & post cruise in hotels. North quickly found a wonderful deal on the air fare & put us in contact with an associate that gave us several hotels to choose from that suited what we wanted. Everything was booked well in advance & our travel days went smoothly. We have never been disappointed with North's advice or help. We would highly recommend him to anyone.

Wonderful day tour

We have been fortunate to have experienced several tours with Virtuoso, all with North's recommendation. Even though we have been to Maui many times (it's our favorite place) we went to the Iao Valley , which we had never visited and found it to be very scenic and worthwhile. We had also been to Gannon's for lunch, although it was called Sea Scapes then. Beautiful views from there, and such a delicious lunch. We enjoy all the meals on the ship, but this lunch surpassed them all. The Mahi-mahi was delicious and such a large serving. We had mahi-mahi several times on the ship and it couldn't compare to Gannon's. Shirley and Gary were excellent hosts and we enjoyed their company at the welcome reception on the ship and our day at Kahului. We would certainly go with Virtuoso again if possible and highly recommend them.

Excellent, as usual!

The visit to Kahului was great, as was the restaurant. We had been there before, when it was known as Seascapes, so it was nice to go again. The meal was superb, very thick halibut (one of our favourites) done to a turn. We have enjoyed halibut on the ship, but it couldn't compare to Gannon's. Hawaii is our favourite place in all the world and we have spent a lot of time in Maui. Saying that, we hadn't been to the Iao Valley State Park before, and it was certainly worth the visit. We enjoyed the whole trip, also the company of the hosts. Virtuoso certainly does a good job and I wouldn't hesitate to take advantage of their services again.

Very well informed and easy to talk with.

I found the booking of our last cruise a pleasant and simple exercise thanks to North's easy and affable persona. His obvious level of expertise made all the arrangements completed in an acurate and timely manner, completely stress free. He made sure all facets of our trip were explained fully including all relevent costs involved, including the trip cancellation need. This last item proved fortuitis as my wife came down with shingles one week before departure, requiring us to cancel the cruise. Once again, North handled everything fast and had our refund on its way back to us in very short order. I have nothing but high praise for the job North did on all things related to our planned trip. Very pleased

I have been booking my cruises for the last 20 years with North, he is the most knowledgeable cruise expert, his recommendations are always the best and he makes sure that we are provided with the best prices. His expertise and service makes it easy for me to recommend a cruise to the group of family and friends that I travel with. I will always book my cruises with him and have recommended him to all my family and friends. Thanks and have a great day
