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.

Roy became hooked on cruising ten years ago and has turned that passion for travel into his second career, after retiring in 2016 from 35 years of service with Toronto Paramedic Services. Cruising has taken Roy from the top of the world (visiting the Arctic Ocean on an Alaska cruise tour) to the bottom of the world experiencing the magnificence of the Antarctic Peninsula.

He has been captivated by the fascinating history of the Panama Canal and has a wealth of knowledge in this area – having sailed to this area several times. What does he think of his new career? “I’m excited to help people turn their vacation dreams into wonderful memories.” Roy is eager to continue discovering more of the world by cruising its oceans and rivers.

Roy brings the utmost in customer service and looks forward to his new career and sharing his experiences with his clients.
