My Background

I would love to share my travel experience and expertise to help plan a wonderful trip for you.I have been a travel adviser for 9 years and I travel often.

Iwas married in St. Lucia and I have been on several wonderful cruises. Ihave cruised on Princess, NCL, Celebrity, Disney cruise line, Azamara andCrystal Cruises.

Our agency specializes in Luxury Cruises and we are a Crystal cruises platinum agency. My last Crystal cruise was to New England. It is such a beautiful area. Crystal has the most attentive staff and excellent service. The food was fabulous as well as the entertainment.

My Azamara cruise to the French Riviera last year and the ports and the overnights on Azamara were unique and special.

My last trips were to Dubai at the Fairmont resort on the Palm, Belize and on Holland America's Eurodam, AMA Waterways Amsterdam to Basel.

Canyon Ranch, Tuscon AZ is AMAZING, I want to go every year!

Please contact me to help you plan your next fabulous vacation.

Seabourn Caribbean Delight

Another amazing cruise on Seabourn. Every expectation I had of them was once again exceeded.

Michelle did a great job! The hotel I wanted to stay at was booked for the time frame I needed, but she checked it every day to ensure we were able to get a room for the days we needed. We'll definitely be calling back for our future travel needs!

SErenity Med cruise

By: Ken

Reviewed on: 08 Jun 2015

Great itinerary - naming cruise for Formula one race a terrible idea - seats were not "EXCLUSIVE" as pushed in excursion propaganda, seats were very hard, seat cushions were a joke; sat in bleachers for 3 full hours before race even started - why?? Lunch was awful and no program - had to spend another 10 Euro to get some idea what was going on - big screen TV was no help - way too far away and announcer spoke primarily in French - only a little English & not much info given out - sitting in the stand we had no idea what was going on - For $950 per ticket(which were $450 tickets) would have expected a TOTALLY different experience. Crystal should be ashamed. AS far as the ship goes - food & service were very good & there was a lot to do. Magic show (up close type) was FANTASTIC!! The guy was so good that even tough we were only a group of 20 sitting close to him the stuff he did was unreal. Virtuoso excursion in Barcelona was great - very unique - winery was a mind blower - especially

Desperate for coffee😀

By: JB

Reviewed on: 05 Jul 2015

The only thing I would complain about is the lack of service at checkout time. I would have deeply appreciated coffee availability in the lobby the morning we departed. Our hotel departure time was 6:45 a.m. The closest cup of coffee was approx. a 1/2 mile away at the hotel beach. The man at the front desk could have cared less. However, until we departed, the staff was very accommodating and courteous. It was truly a beautiful resort.

Helpful, friendly cruise advisor

By: Madshoppershari

Reviewed on: 16 Jul 2015

Helpful - sent good reminders on due dates to keep plans moving and on track. Friendly - always friendly and professional. Cruise Service - really appreciate the upgrade to VIP status on the cruise. This was not expected and truly appreciated. Virtuoso Tour - both the happy hour and train ride were exceptional. The hostess, Monica, and her husband were wonderful. Plane travel - not optimal for everyone especially my 70+ year old mother. There could be some improvements on trying to make exceptions when it comes to this. Silversea - will go again on this cruise line. Loved it. This was my first cruise.

Fairmount Banff and Calgary


Reviewed on: 17 Sep 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed escaping Texas heat over Labor Day weekend and getting my 'fall fix on' in Alberta CAN. Two distinct Fairmount experiences,e.g., large, historic resort in mountainous Banff, and city center, intimate property in Calgary - adjacent to the Tower. Both made for great and convenient access to both environs - and just the right amount of time for each (3 days / 2 days) to get a good sense of the area. Thanks to Michelle for making the reservations...

Fantastic Agent

By: VM

Reviewed on: 08 Apr 2016

Michelle Harvell is not only the most knowledgeable, but the most caring travel agent I could possibly have had the good luck to have handle my travel experience. She anticipated my needs, for example in getting me a wheelchair when I doubted I needed one (Boy she was right there) and getting me both to and especially from the airport. She kept fully in touch throughout both the planning, always making sure I met my deadlines, and the experience of the journey. I cannot thank, nor recommend Michelle highly enough.

Canadian Rockies

By: ken

Reviewed on: 28 Jun 2016

fabulous trip - even with bad weather the entire time - Canadian Rockies put Colorado to shame - train is spectacular but do not do it for more than 2 days - it is the perfect length of time - we were not prepared for how cold it was - ice fields were minus 10 F chill factor. Lake Louise was literally unbelievably beautiful. Michelle did a great job, as always.

Tulum Mexico

By: Eddie

Reviewed on: 03 Aug 2016

Experienced some incredible memories. It is a beautiful resort. They keep you entertained, well fed and the drinks are great. A couple of glitches with the room (one toilet did not work but we had another handicapped shower/toilet in the room. )They were booked and could not give us another room until the following day. The day of the wedding we were told to go to the lobby after the ceremony and we would be shuttled to the venue. They had one large golf cart, we asked about the other two that were parked near by and were told they are dead. We had about 80 guest.

Expert friendly service

By: Connie

Reviewed on: 02 Oct 2016

Great cruise with 3 friends in 2 adjoining cabins. Denise Goldner made our plans and handled most of the communication with you for us. I recently had knee replacement surgery so was happy to have wheelchairs to get on and off the ship. I'm sure we'll be using your services again. Thank you for the wine vouchers. Perhaps next time it would be easier to give each cabin a full bottle of wine instead of giving each person a half bottle. This caused problems with billing in the dining room and the oddball system Princess has of getting shipboard charges to the front desk. However, this is minor and we all really appreciated your efforts and the wine.
