Ireland, Luxury Cruises & Destination Weddings

Me and my wife at the Cliffs of Moher, Ireland
Me and my wife at the Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

I have been in the travel industry for over 20 years and have extensive knowledge in planning luxury cruise vacations and tours of Europe, especially Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales.  I lived in England for 2 years and fell in love with the beauty, culture and history of the United Kingdom.  

I also specialize in church group cruises, which allow me the opportunity to facilitate marriage retreats, family retreats, or whatever type of retreat a church may want to focus on for its members. I will even coordinate the meeting space and guest speaker for the group as well as private venues for church services or workshops.

I am also a CLIA certified Luxury Cruise Specialist, specializing in ultra-luxury cruise vacations on lines such as Crystal, Regent Seven Seas, Seabourn, Silversea, SeaDream Yacht Club and Cunard. What I love most about many of these cruise lines is the all-inclusive nature of a luxury cruise, along with the exceptional and unmatched service they provide. I truly enjoy pairing my clients with the right luxury cruise experience as well as customizing pre- and post-cruise packages for them. I have been on 46 cruises to date. Whatever vacation destination is on your "travel" bucket list, I would love the opportunity to help customize the perfect experience for you.

Honeymoon

We booked our honeymoon with Marty. It was a very good experience. This was the first time that we have traveled out of the US and he was very helpful. I will be booking through him every time we go on vacation! :)
