The Paul Gauguin cruise to the Cook and Society Islands was fantastic. The day hotel stays were great. Most of our tours were to see the local history of each island. The entire crew did a superb job to make such an enjoyable cruise. Thanks again for your great cruise expertise.

I began my professional career working in the casinos of Atlantic City, a few hours from where I grew up in Pennsylvania. I was being considered for a job as a Jet Bunny (flight attendant for the Playboy private jet, “The Big Bunny”) while working at the Playboy Hotel and Casino. Unfortunately, the casino changed ownership and the jobs didn’t materialize for anyone from our club. It did, however, start a life love of travel.
I now spend my time cruising the world and helping others realize their dreams. some of my very favorite experiences I have had, standing in the middle of Red Square in Moscow, turning around and seeing several things I never thought I would see in my lifetime, places like, The Kremlin, the beautiful St Basils cathedral across from GUM dept store and Lennon's tomb!
Floating in the Dead Sea in Israel is something that I think everyone should do at least once. Not only is it good for your health and skin, you can sit straight up in the water, like you are sitting on top of the water. It is like nowhere else on earth!
Once while sitting on a cruise ship tender in HaLong Bay in Vietnam, a huge dense fog enveloped the small boat, no one at the helm. It was a very strange sensation, I felt a big connection to some of our soldiers from the 1960s and 1970s who may have sat right there where I was 40 years earlier! It was very moving for me. Then for a really different experience in Vietnam, I saw the funniest thng: two live pigs on the back of a motorcycle weaving in and out of traffic!
Since I am a musician, a drummer that is... I've been lucky enough to play some jazz on the Crystal Symphony with some great guests artists, other ships I have played on have been the Celebrity Infinity, the Diamond Princess, the Star Princess, the Grandeur of the Seas the Monarch of the Seas, Uniworld's River Beatrice, and many many more...
As a cruise specialist, I deliver dreams. When it comes to land cruises (rail vacations!) I've ridden the tracks in South Africa on Rovos Rail and in Canada on VIA Rail. My dad was a train collector and both of my great grandfathers worked for rail companies.
The fun begins when we start planning, but that is just the start. Think of the fun you will have while traveling!
