Introduction: I specialize in utilizing the perks of group cruising, to craft once in a lifetime vacations. I have cruised around the world, and have been fortunate enough to enjoy unusual destinations from the tunnels of Cu Chi in Vietnam to the pyramids of Giza. I have dined with locals in their homes in Morocco or Japan, and have some excursion experience in China, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Israel, Turkey, Ukraine, and Alaska. I hold certifications with the following ocean cruise lines: Princess, Regent Seven Seas, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Virgin Voyages, Carnival, Azamara, and river cruise lines AmaWaterways, Uniworld, and Avalon. I have experience in Alaska, with a cruise and tours several times this past year. I enjoy both the planning aspect of cruise vacations, as well as hearing about the stories after the trip. In addition to planning group cruises, I also have a career working in mental health.

Gary was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about all the cruises available to me. He listened to what I was looking for and responded with all the right suggestions. I was very happy with the way he worked with me. I would highly recommend him.
