My Background

I have been selling travel experiences for 30 years.  First selling corporate travel, then leisure travel.  I have been to many countries around the world and specialize in honeymoons, destination weddings and family travel. 

I have a great ability to find the best airfare to international destinatoins, both economy and business class.  Traveling to new destinations to experience first hand where I send my clients is my goal.  I take advantage of learning about new destinations when we have office visits by hoteliers as well as when I travel there on my own.  I have expereinced Egypt, Ireland, Morocco and most Caribbean islands, and have taken my children to experience Costa Rica as well.  I look forward to making your travel dreams come true.

I could not be more pleased with Michelle's planning of my trip to Ireland. She handled a last-minute request with grace and set us up in places that I would never have found on my own, and that made the trip. What's more, she secured for us upgrades and airline rewards that I am 100% sure we would not have gotten but for her intervention (and she continued to work for us even after we returned home). I've recommended her to several people already, and I look forward to calling her again.

The best partner for an important trip

Michelle went out of her way to coordinate a very "special event" for me. My father was recently diagnosed with a terminal disease and I wanted to give him a trip of a lifetime - I was an exceptionally high demand "customer" given how memorable I wanted this to be, and she never failed to accommodate my requests, advise on options, and see through the execution of a very complex 7 day adventure. Very reliable and always pleasant to deal with. I could not have asked for a better partner.

Michelle planned our trip to California and most recently Italy. Traveling to Europe for the first time was a bit unnerving, but she kept our mind at ease. She does a wonderful job with making sure all the small details are taken care of, so her clients do not have to worry. Michelle always books us in wonderful resorts with great amenities. I would recommend anyone to work with her and the rest of the Cruise and World Travel team.In this day in age, its very easy to plan a trip yourself via the internet. However the service Michelle has provides makes us want to use Cruise and World Travel for our future trips. Michelle deserves top recognition and my highest recommendation.

Michelle planned a trip for me and my husband to Munich, Salzburg, Vienna and Prague, making hotel reservations and purchasing train tickets for us. All of the hotels Michelle recommended were excellent in terms of their location for sightseeing, room décor and overall service. In fact, three of the hotels graciously upgraded our rooms. While all of the above are important, Michelle went above and beyond, by intervening when our airline flights were cancelled the day of our departure due to a pilot's strike. Michelle tenaciously pursued booking us on an alternate flight, and we were able to arrive in Munich as planned. Without Michelle's efforts, our trip could have been a disaster, but instead, it was a trip we will fondly remember.
