I love sharing my first hand destination experiences with my clients, with top tips and insider knowledge to really help my clients get the most from their vacation.  While I have completed the highest levels of training and certification with our cruise line partners, I find it is my first hand personal experiences that my clients really appreciate when putting together custom vacation packages.

I’ve been fortunate enough to experience several different styles of cruising – from big ship ocean cruises, to intimate river cruises, and six-star luxury cruising with Crystal Cruises.

My favourite trip?  I think sailing the Rhone river aboard the 160 guest SS Catherine with Uniworld Boutique River Cruises.  The up close and personal look at life in the South of France was fascinating, and the focus on local cuisine and winemaking gave us a true taste of the region!

“We have now booked over 20 cruises with Samuel who is a very knowledgeable and professional travel consultant. Samuel is able to provide assistance and advice on all aspects of cruising in addition to arranging transfers, hotels and tours. Most advice given is through his own personal experience travelling with these lines. I would definitely recommend Samuel given his in-depth knowledge of the industry.”  – Maggie.
