GENERAL MANAGER, CRUISE & LUXURY TRAVEL SPECIALIST

Biography

Cruise and luxury travel expert, with over 20 years experience

I specialize in cruise vacation planning, with a particular specialty in small-ship, luxury and river cruising.  I love to share my first hand experience, knowledge and expertise with my clients to ensure exceptional, out of the ordinary vacation experiences.

I have over 20 years experience in the travel industry including working for cruise lines, airlines, hotels, and for the last 8-years as the owner and general manager of Ocean & River Cruises Travel – an award-winning cruise specialist agency.

I love sharing my first hand destination experiences with my clients, with 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 on over 70 cruises including:

  • Big ship ocean-liners
  • The small sailing yachts of Windstar
  • Intimate river cruise ships in Asia and Europe
  • Expedition style ships, such as the 88-guest Tere Moana with Paul Gauguin Cruises.

Whether you’re looking for an amenity filled ship with plenty of onboard facilities, or something upscale, small and unique – I’d love to hear from you.

Planning a cruise also runs well beyond the onboard ship experience.  Over the years, I’ve built up great relationships with hoteliers, tour guides and our travel suppliers that I’ve met during my travels or through top level industry events.  Leveraging these relationships allows me to bring great value and choice to my clients.

Contact me for an initial discussion about your travel plans – no pressure, no hassle.  After a detailed consultation, I’ll put together a proposal with my recommendations for the cruise vacation packages that will be a great fit – just for you.

Best of all, for my river cruise, luxury and small-ship clients, this expertise and knowledge is just part of the value that you’ll enjoy from working with me.  I’ll also guide you through the exclusive amenity packages and value added offers that our agency is often able to add to bring even more value to your vacation.

Your travel dreams are my passion – I look forward to hearing from you.

“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.
