Meet Our Cruise Specialists
Ted is our Celebrity Cruise expert which is one of our most popular cruise lines with new clients. This year he, along with his wife, were honoured by Celebrity Cruise lines at a special presentation on the Summit for the ‘Most at Sea with Celebrity’ passengers. But Ted has also sailed with Regent’s Mariner on an 18 day Trans Atlantic from Barcelona to Rio de Janeiro. While he has a number of Celebrity itineraries planned for this year, he will be on Uniworld’s SS.Antoinette cruising the Rhine from Basel to Amsterdam, and later in the year back to Celebrity on a 17 day Australian and New Zealand cruise.
Bill retired from the business world after having worked for multinational corporations for 40 years that allowed working and travelling to most regions of the world. He made his first business trip to Mexico in 1977, Argentina in 1985, China /Singapore in 1986 and to India/Indonesia in 2000. Bill also worked in France for 4 years, and in Mexico for 9 months. His family did not have a cottage, so they traveled, first in Canada, and then made their first trip to Europe in 1960 for 3 months.
I specialize in booking personalized cruises to the world’s most interesting destinations! My goal as a travel consultant is to pair you with the perfect cruise in any destination at any budget.
With so many cruise lines and itineraries available, it can be difficult finding the right one. Today, many travelers are fooled into thinking that the Internet has all the answers and information one needs to make an informative decision. I have access to special suppliers, amenities and upgrades that you may not find on your own.
My promise to you is to provide peace of mind and accountability and a safety net should the unexpected occur. I am your advocate!

As an avid traveler, I love to help both new and experienced travelers discover the world and create lasting memories. There are so many corners of the world to discover including hidden gems in Asia, exhilarating experiences in Central America, and the fascinating culture of French Polynesia and Europe. With my guidance and your travel preferences we can create a spectacular vacation experience.
Ensuring you get the best value, superior service and extensive knowledge is a passion of mine. To better serve you, I continuously upgrade my professional education and have completed a wide variety of training.
Betty’s current passion is River Cruising. She has escorted groups on the Danube River with Avalon Waterways, the Yangtze River with a stay in China with Viking Cruises, the Rhone River with AMA Waterways and most recently a trip to Vietnam, Cambodia and the Mekong River with AMA Waterways. Betty believes cruising is one of the best ways for families to travel. When travelling with her husband, Peter, they prefer the travelling experience on the small ships of Oceania Cruises, Silversea Cruises and Windstar Cruises.
“There are so many different ways to travel and I am here to guide you. So, what is on your ‘Bucket List’ ? Africa, South America, French Polynesia, The World? I look forward to hearing from you.” -Betty
I grew up loving to travel and experiencing new cultures. I was born in England but have spent the majority of my life in Canada. Part of my career was spent working in the hospitality industry, but now my passion for travel has bought me to work in the travel industry.
I have travelled personally to many of the Caribbean sun destinations including Mexico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Jamaica and Bermuda. Over the years I have also been fortunate to enjoy many cruise holidays around the world and would like to share my knowledge with you to chose the perfect cruise holiday for you and to make your dreams become a reality! Whether you would like to cruise in Europe, the Caribbean or travel through the Panama Canal let me share my personal experiences with you.
