Celebrity Summit

By: Frequent Crusier

Reviewed on: 27 Nov 2015

We had a wonderful time and feel we received an excellent cruise value since our package included a drink package, tips and onboard credit. Joan's recommendation for Aqua class was right on. We enjoyed having an opportunity to use the smaller Blu dining room with a very friendly restaurant manager. As always, we recommend a couple days in San Juan before the cruise. Rent a car and visit the rain forest and Old San Juan. Consider a drive down to Ponce.

Taste of Bordeaux

By: Butch

Reviewed on: 04 Oct 2016

My first trip abroad. Flew into CDG. BTW, one corridor of CDG (2E) has more gates than Lindbergh Field! After a couple of action-packed days in Paris, we were off to Bordeaux to get on the AmaWaterways ship, the AmaDolce. Great staff, great ports, great tours & really good food...non-stop for seven days. The chateaus, the castles, the villages were awesome. It was a stretch, but we managed to squeeze in a Normandy trip at the end with a great visit to Bayeux. Our agent did a terrific job for all of us. Looking forward to the next trip!

Joan is the ultimate professional. She is patient, she is informed, she will work all her resources to put together a trip that works best for you and your fellow travelers. As a family of 5 with kids of different ages it is always hard to make everyone happy but Joan helped put together an amazing trip for us and we had an amazing time.

Joan is great to work with. She is knows "her stuff" and is great at arranging tours, hotels, car services and cruises. We've used her to book several trip and she is always professional and thorough. She's always willing to check on different prices, different hotels and different cruise categories for us. I will use her every time.
