My Background

After graduating at the top of her class from a local Southern California high school, Leah went on to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology and European/WWII History at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1997. It was in Santa Barbara that Leah decided a career in education might prove rewarding. Leah graduated from UCSB and pursued an even higher level of education from California State University, Long Beach. Here, she received her graduate degree and credentials in primary education. Leah taught for three years in the Long Beach and Anaheim public school system focusing on reading development and child advocacy.

Upon meeting Jay Johnson and his family, Leah took interest in the luxury travel industry. She recognized that she continued to have a great passion for learning outside what textbook pages could offer and could still use her educating skills in this field. Leah’s goal is to provide the utmost in travel advice and customer service, and takes great pride in being part of such a phenomenal Virtuoso agency. Your wish can be a dream fulfilled and realized as she plans every detail of your next adventure.

Unfortunately the shore excursions were messed up because they were booked thru coastline and not the cruise line. Many times were changed. One excursion was supposed to be 4hrs and was 9 hrs. The cruise line didn't know as much as they should have about the shore trips. I was booked on a last day trip and dropped off at the airport, they didn't even know it existed. Very frustrating.

Everything was perfect.  Love Princess for their food, service, military credits, etc. etc... The entertainment on this cruise was better than usual.  I have nothing negative to say except the band didn't play one or two nights due to injury or illness of the drummer.  Could not be helped.  Leah got us a good spot on the boat for our room as well as a super price.  We traveled with another couple and this was the first time we were next door to our friends.  Usually we find ourselves on separate floors.  It was very easy to coordinate dinner etc.  Leah even got our friends a great price.  The ports were really good.  Smoothest water conditions we have ever had.  April is a good time of year to go to Belize.  Leah followed up with us after the cruise which was nice.  We have used Coast Travel and Leah for several cruises now including Country cruises and we will definitely do it again.

Transportation, lodging, and tours were all planned and executed extremely well with Leah acting as local contact. We used the same tour company to do private tours in St Petersberg (Exeter). Leah also coordinated assuring that our Russian Visas were in order and delivered in plenty of time. We are always skeptical when relying on someone else to plan on our behalf.

Leah does a great job every time. We have gone on her trips for 8 years and she is always available to answer questions. I do have 3 comments this time about things we did not enjoy. The flights were terrible. It took us all day and especially the flight home. You get off of a cruise extra early and then your flight isn't until that night. That was exhausting. I would rather pay a little extra for better times or nonstop flights. The dance instructor was too advanced for us and the dancing seemed way more advanced than usual. I guess we are used to and loved Shawn Parr- he would make it easy and fun. I would have rather just had some of the people in the group teaching it as the song goes along as it was many times in the past. I enjoyed the band once in awhile, but honestly we enjoyed the dj playing current songs we know or have heard better. Leah always does a great job and I don't want this to be a dig for Leah.

Leah recently arranged the Viking River Cruise trip for us, 22 members in our group. The first contact to Leah was made about one and half years ago. During a such a long period, there were several changes to be made, lots of questions to be asked, various numerous contacts needed and special arrangement requests necessary between Leah and our group. Sometimes I felt as if she was using all her working hours for our group. However, Leah was very patient all the time and dealt the difficult situations superbly well. For example, due to the misunderstanding regarding the air option, Leah had to go the extra mile to resolve the problem with Vikings. Leah not only solved the problems, but also arranged our flights with better value. Thanks to Leah, we all 22 people had a great time in cruising the Danube River.

Time after time, Leah proves herself as professional, gracious and a delight to work with. There are no surprises when Leah plans your travel; she is efficient and always ready to answer any question or solve a problem. And if somehow she doesn't know the answer (very rare, indeed) she'll quickly get back to you with the correct answer. Calm and cool under pressure, Leah manages you gently through the miasma that much of travel has become. This was our second cruise on the Paul Gauguin. It was seamless from start to finish due in no small part to Leah. She made sure every detail was in order. Trust me when I say you'll thank her countless times during your travels. I don't think I'd bother to plan a trip without her. There's simply no benefit to that! Cheers, Leah! You're a joy to work with. Thank you for your wonderful service. Coastline is blessed to have you.

Always great to have Leah helping us out with the planning stages of our trips. She is open to my preferences and willing to make suggestions that, so far, have never led me down a wrong path. Viking was not Leah's first choice for river cruise company's but Viking had the itinerary we wanted and we definitely wanted casual and NOT an ornate ship. She gave us the pros and cons of several river cruise lines. We chose to stick with our original Viking trip and were well pleased; great itinerary, we encountered no "glitches", and the whole trip was seamless. Leah arranged the pre and post cruise stays, the transfers to the ship and the hotels, and stayed on top of any cruise discounts we qualified for. All deadlines were met. We have used Leah for 3 years of our international travel plans, I never worry about if the tickets will arrive on time, if the transfers will go through, etc. Travel can be stressful but having Leah cover the details is very reassuring!!!

By: sheshe

Helpful but slow to respond to questions once she gets your money. Very dissappointed there were not enough men to dance with on the 2013 Alaska and 2015 Coastal Cruises. Instead of Coastline paying for free drinks, tee-shirts, Coastline crusing bags, plastic luggage tags and prises, you would make your single females much happier if you would offer discounts to men to act as dance hosts. Also, would like more traditional, older line dances played rather than the newer, more intricate dances. It's silly to learn dances that are never played locally at the dances at home. It's much more enjoyable to dance to dances we have committed to muscle memory. Our poor brains can't cope with deviations like traveling to the kick ball change in Black Velvet. It doesn't allow the step to be performed properly when traveling.

Generally, on balance, the trip was fun. A few mild stumbling blocks....although we had specified with whom we wanted to be seated for dinner well before the trip began and were assured it would be so, it wasn't so when we boarded and we had to go through some lines and waiting to get the Maitre d' to rearrange things...but not a big problem. Another criticism from my point of view....the line dancers just dominated the floor and left very little room, if any, for twosteppers, until the last couple of days of the cruise when a request was made to leave the periphery open and allow twosteppers some room....again, not a biggie. Thought the food was acceptable, but not particularly great entrees. Choice was limited. Deserts were good. Service everywhere was exceptionally good...Staff friendly, courteous, very willing to help out. We did Alcatraz on our own and that was a great tour, as was touring the USS Midway in San Diego. Love cruises that begin and and in LA.

Advertised Bona Fide Band, no show, no explanation. Never greeted with a hi, how are you, glad you came. Did not feel welcomed. Organizers consistently late for scheduled events or classes. Asked about bathroom amenities and was told there were none (might be dispensers in shower). Leah asked for them to ship to her brother in the military overseas. The dance floor was too small for the number of people. Babies were allowed to crawl on the dance floor. I personally had to avoid stepping on one a couple of times. I should not have to worry about a baby on the dance floor, especially at 10 and 11 o'clock at night. Classes scheduled for 3 or 4 hours, but only water was provided. A light snack would have been nice. The only reason we had a good time is because a few friends came together.

Leah planned a great trip. The ship was very well appointed and the itinerary was great.

However, I did enjoy some of the specialty restaurants on board the Riviera and the staterooms were very spacious.

For my 25th anniversary, I wanted to take my wife on a trip to a surprise location.

Also, since this was a surprise for my wife, I had limited times when I could call Leah. I appreciate that she was able to deal with that as well as making sure that correspondence went to my work location so it wouldn't be "intercepted".

The hotels they chose were excellent and several times we were upgraded to rooms with better views, larger traces or junior suites. The hotels also were tailored to our specifications (in a great location in Madrid or outside the city in other places) The suggested private guides were knowledgable and personable; we understood how lucky we were not to be herded around in a large group with no way deviate from a planned program. We booked our own flights on miles but they used our flights to get get better rates for our car rental.

The terrain was only a challenge for those who chose to ignore Leah's direction for decent footwear (the flip flops were doomed from the start). Dance classes at sea were awesome with Shawn while the Country Heat program added lots of fun. Evening dancing with DJ Mark - whether it was in a salon or under the stars - was great each night with the glow and costume parties treats.

The Country Splashdown Cruise 2016 to the Caribbean was fantastic! All of the pre-cruise information, pre-cruise hotel accommodations and transportation was great and everything went so smoothly. From the time we got on the boat to the time we got off, all of the CS events and get-togethers were wonderful. I know there was an immense amount of planning behind the scenes and Leah did a fantastic job! She was always there to greet us all and make sure we were having a good time and if we needed anything. I hope she had the chance to enjoy the cruise as much as my sister, Debbie and I did!! Thanks to Leah, we had an amazing vacation!!!! Thanks and thanks again!! :- D

We had a great time, the excursions were great. It would have been nicer if we didn't have to do so many of our events on the deck the lounge room was a better place but I'm sure that was not Leah's fault.

It was a wonderful experience working with Leah throughout this past year. She always responded with any questions I had and gave me advice on what she felt was the best scenario for shore excursions, insurance, hotels etc. Leah is friendly, caring, and loves to be around people and to hear about our experiences onboard the ship. She is so knowledgable and a pleasure to work with when setting up a trip. Thank you to Coastline for Leah's way of making everything on our wonderful Caribbean trip the best it could be!

I enjoyed the cruise in general. I did not participate in the two excursions by Coastline only because there were other things I wanted to do. I honestly did not enjoy the dancing that much for a couple of reasons: (1) the venues for dancing were not the best, and (2) the playlist was very repetitive. We also had late dinners so we did not get to evening activities until later. I enjoyed the cruise overall, and would go again in the future.
Not Recommended

Well coordinated but disappointing

By: 1st timer

Reviewed on: 25 Nov 2016

Leah is friendly, efficient, and likable. I have no complaints about her as a person. The Country Splashdown portion of the cruise was disappointing for a couple of reasons. #1 reason was the limited playlist at the dance parties. DJ Mark played the same few songs over and over to the exclusion of many others. It seemed like his favorites were mostly "old" songs (more than 2 years) for which I did not know the line dance. (Even though I've only been dancing a couple of years, I go out every week and have a lot of current dances under my belt). I think some people on the Country Splashdown were there to reunite with old friends & acquaintances from past cruises, but as a new timer, I was not one of them. #2 reason was the lack of good dancing venues on the ship. Too small (inside) or inappropriate floor (outside). Given that this event has been put on for 10 years, I think it should have been better. Clearly, Jay, Leah and Shawn do not dance.

Wonderful and Helpful

My favorite part of the cruise was the turtle excursion. The line dancing was fun for the line dancers! It was fun to dance on the aft of the ship at night! The place for the lessons in the morning was too small. The Vista Lounge was great. Everything was VERY organized and fun. Leah worked real hard to make sure we were having a good time. Shawn always kept things fun and upbeat.

The cruise was great fun! The food and service were good. On the other Princess ships, they had craft classes everyday, but not on this trip. I enjoyed having a large room for all our events because it was so humid when we met at the outside bars. I especially liked The Voice as I am a big fan of the t.v. show. Please let us know if Shaun's brother is going to be on, as we have a connection for getting tickets. You and Jay did an outstanding job, as always! The excursion we did with the group was well planned, thought out and a lot of fun.

What fun to be included in Splashdown 2016. You did a fabulous job planning, Leah, and you were available to answer many questions before the trip. I appreciated that! Your suggestion of a room, all the activities, meeting new faces, learning new dances, enjoyable meals--as well as a few great land tours--made for wonderful memories. Thanks a lot!
