My Background

I've been in the travel industry over 35 years, have traveled to over 100 countries and sailed on 300 cruise.  I particularly enjoy helping clients select the perfect cruise, but my heart belongs to India and Africa.

Most recently I visited Paris eating, drinking and taking in all the sights.

Enjoyable experience

We had a great time. The lunches had the nicest variety of most of the ships we have sailed. The new Retreat Section in front of the ship had the pool on the same level and was quiet and an only adult area. We signed up for her sister ship The Regal.

Thanks Gina

Had a really great time

By: James


Reviewed on: 26 Apr 2015

Our cruise was really enjoyable. The accommodations were quite nice and roomy and the staff was very accommodating. The ship is not geared for guests that like to dance as the dance floors were very small and the band's repertoire was not very broad when it came to "rock and roll" selections. The meals were very good and the specialty dining areas were quite nice. However, there was not an Italian restaurant selection other than a buffet...in which I do not participate as I detest buffets with large "public" groups. The open dining concept meant that it was difficult to develop a relationship with the wait staff, a factor I enjoy on other cruise lines. The tours were very obviously well planned but the distribution of segments of a population of 700+ made the start of the tours somewhat hectic. A lovely time all in all, made better by the assistance of Gina, our exclusive cruise consultant.

TRIP TO HVAR AND PITVE

By: EDDIE


Reviewed on: 17 Jun 2015

Marian and Lewis were most professional and fun to be with. They planned a wonderful tour of Hvar; and, a super fun bus trip thru the countryside to the town of Pitve where we had a private tables for our group. It was fun to seel the vineyards and olice groves along the way. For lunch we had lovely wines to go with the seabass that was served. We could actually from our tables look down and see the seacoast. What a wonderful lunch they planned for us. As usual I had several glasses of white and red. They were both excellent. Next time Virtuoso plans a function on ship or on shore. Count me in.

Royal Caribbean - Liberty of the Seas June 4-13, 2015

By: Steven


Reviewed on: 18 Jun 2015

This was our 28th cruise, all but 4 on RCCL. This was a 9-day cruise: 4 ports; 5 sea days. Over half of the passengers were Royal repeaters. 1st time on this Freedom Class ship. We have previously been to all ports so we spent only a little time on shore. The entertainment was seriously outstanding. We loved the dancing at Boleros. Tried the FlowRider and had a ball! Crew were exceptionally courteous and attentive. Food and dining were very good although we missed the Asian cuisine for breakfast in the Windjammer. This is our perfect vacation. Toni, Gina, and Mike at Northstar Cruises are true professionals and have always provided good advice and service and are very attentive to our needs.

My driver from Siena to Florence was a woman with many years of experience who lived in Florence.She took me through the Chianti wine country and arranged for a private winery tour and lunch independent of any request of mine.Delightful surprise.My guide for my walking tour of Florence was a wonderful woman, again with many years of experience, who knew her history and art as well as shopping areas.She also had a great sense of humor and interesting stories about living in Florence which she had most of her life.The only difficult thing was leaving.Gina was architect of this wonderful experience.

First time Crystal Cruiser

By: Pat


Reviewed on: 19 Nov 2015

Hi Gina, All went better than well. Really terrific! Thanks for all your efforts on our behalf. Reservation, pick-ups, drop offs all good. This was our first experience with Crystal and we enjoyed it. It was a rigorous cruise - six ports in seven days - consequently didn't get much time at sea. So, relaxing it wasn't. However our time in Lisbon, Six Senses and surrounding wine country couldn't have been more delightful - beautiful, interesting and relaxing. The Four Seasons was lovely but, if I were to do it again, I would go with less expensive and a more central location. Our pre-cruise days in Monaco and Nice fun. Returning on Luftansa was a pleasure - great food, comfortable cabin and seats and most pleasant staff.

This was the second Crystal cruise Gina has booked for us. And she recently booked a third one - a Crystal river cruise in October. She has also booked airlines through Crystal for us on these cruises. She does an excellent job of handling our bookings. She responds promptly by phone or email when I have questions. I wouldn't book with anyone else going forward.

I have worked well with Gina on several trips in the past and have found her input insightful and valuable to us. This year, she was also helpful and helped us select Crystal for our river cruise and also found competitive business class airfare. However, her response time and overall organization was a little bit off from what I had experienced in the past. Hope it improves for next time.

My hotel arrangements in Barcelona at the Mandarin Oriental were superb. The hotel beautiful and hotel staff incredibly helpful. My cruise from Barcelona to Rome on the Seaboard Sojourn was an amazing experience. My suite was fantastic. Ship personnel were attentive and always asked if there was anything else they could do for me. My stewardess was particularly great. The variety of restaurants was great. There were so many choices and no required seating times. Reservations not required. Both of these gave me the freedom to eat when and with whom I wanted...or alone, which is often desirable. The food uniformly very good. The Virtuoso excursion was fabulous and one of my 2 favorite days. The only complaints I have were with two excursions from Marseille and Elba. In the Elba case, my cost was refunded after Seaboard contacted the shore destination organizers. Had to visit ship MD, who provided excellent care.

Encore! Another First Class Experience

By: John B


Reviewed on: 26 Dec 2016

Crystal is known to be among the finest cruise lines in the world. They do not disappoint. For our Caribbean cruise, the ports included the Cayman islands, Jamaica, Curacao, Martinique, Guadalupe, St. Bart's and the Turks and Caicos - a select itinerary not often found on other cruise lines. Aboard, there were so many activities to chose from including nightly entertainments, a variety of restaurants, lectures at sea, physical fitness programs, etc. - too many to recount. A nice touch was the "drink of the day" cocktail available poolside on this all inclusive voyage and pre-dinner martini made to my personal specification. We enjoyed several excursions including magnificent beaches, climbing upon bridges in a tropical jungle canopy, a catamaran sail and deep sea fishing. My wife and I plan to return to Crystal in two years - for another experience of a lifetime! [Thanks again to Gina and her staff for their excellent assistance.]

We worked with Gina on our cruise around England, Ireland, N. Ireland and Scotland. Our trip was great. This cruise I booked for a 50th birthday present for my niece/goddaughter. So, to be truthful, we didn't really work with Gina. She turned me over to another person. Was quite upset that we didn't even get a bottle of bubbly to welcome us aboard. I know traveling with Carnival isn't/wouldn't be what I am used to but this was the cruise line my niece wanted to go on. I would love to review the Victory but they never sent me a survey. I am NOT surprised. This was my 51st cruise and I will NEVER go aboard Carnival again.
