Travel style

I believe travel, at its essence, is the process of transforming our dreams into stories we can tell. At this stage in my life, I have realized that traveling by cruise ship is magical! Once you find an itinerary you love with a cruise line with the amenities you seek (and the selection is endless!), you only have to board and unpack once! And if it’s the right cruise line – you don’t even have to unpack! The butler does it for you! Whether it’s ocean or river, ten nights or 180, luxury cruises are my idea of the perfect way to see the world.

The good news? There is virtually a cruise line and itinerary for any trip and situation you can imagine. Would you like to combine that with a safari? I can make that happen. Pre- and post-cruise trips can enhance any cruise vacation. My husband and I always do this with our trips.

When looking for your luxury cruise experience, let me help you navigate the complexity of choices available. As a Fora Advisor and a Virtuoso member, I can add special perks for you once on board. Let’s talk about how we can transform your dreams into stories you can tell.

Amy's reviews

A true professional! Local knowledge in a city like Dubai is of paramount importance. Being a local in this rapidly evolving global city helps Amy to tailor a hotel for your specific requirements. I particularly liked the $75 credit she was able to procure. She also arranged to have breakfast included. (not an insignificant perk.) I will use her services again!
