I had the amazing opportunity to go on an AmaWaterways River Cruise on the Danube in Europe. I went from Budapest, Hungary to Vilshofen, Germany, and got to see big cities, such as Budapest and Vienna, along with quaint small and picturesque towns of Austria and Germany. AmaWaterways really stands out. There were never any lines getting on and off the ship or at the restaurant. The thing that really stands out is the level of service they provide. By the 2nd day of the cruise, they all knew my name, from the cruise manager to the waiters and waitresses, and they all knew what type of food and drinks I like, all by the 2nd day, which was very impressive! If anyone had any allergies, they knew very quickly in the beginning of the cruise. Very personalized service!

All the excursions were included, and they were all very prompt. Even if we ended up leaving late for any reason, we still ended up ending the excursion on time and I never felt shorted on time. This was simply amazing! There were a couple of excursions that were exclusive to AmaWaterways guests, one of which was a castle visit in Grein, Austria, and the other was an Oktoberfest celebration in Vilshofen, Germany, and both were exquisite! The level of service is top notch. I highly recommend AmaWaterways for your next (or first) river cruise, and the Danube did not disappoint!

Give me a call and I will take care of the airfare, transfers, and more for your next trip to Europe or wherever you're planning to travel in 2024 and beyond!

My husband and I decided to embark on a new adventure: our very first river cruise along the legendary Rhine River with AmaWaterways. With a shared love for castles, cathedrals, and the charm of old European doors and canals, we couldn't wait to see what awaited us.

From the moment we stepped on board in Amsterdam, we felt like characters in a storybook. The sights along the waterways seemed straight out of a dream, and we held hands as we watched the world glide by.

One of the highlights was cruising through the magical Rhine Gorge, where ancient castles loomed over us, each one with its own tale to tell. In Cologne, we stood in awe of the majestic Cologne Cathedral, its spires reaching towards the sky. And in Strasbourg, we wandered through narrow streets, admiring the intricate details of centuries-old doors.

Though we were new to river cruising, AmaWaterways made everything easy and enjoyable. Their attention to detail and warm hospitality made us feel right at home, and we quickly fell in love with this unique way of exploring.

As our journey came to an end, we couldn't help but feel a sense of wonder and gratitude for the memories we had created together. Our first Rhine River cruise may be over, but it's just the beginning of our adventures exploring the world hand in hand.

Happy travels!

All the best,

I recently had the opportunity to travel to Cancun, Mexico and visit several amazing all-inclusive properties, both adults-only as well as family friendly options.

There are so many great, affordable options in Mexico! Whether you want a romantic getaway for 2, or desire to make it a family affair, Cancun is the perfect location for warm, fun in the sun! My favorite adult only location was LIVE AQUA BEACH; it was like nothing I have seen before. Each floor has a different aroma therapy scent and the 5th floor, preferred club scent was chocolate! It is very Zen oriented, if you want a calm, peaceful atmosphere with the ultimate spa experience this is the resort for you.

But if you want an option for families as well as adult-only, I would recommend Hard Rock Resort which has a different vibe than LIVE AQUA, but is exactly what you feel and experience from the Hard Rock Brand. From the cool vibrant colors, cool refreshing hand towels at arrival, to the branded coconut water, to the musician memorabilia, it is just as cool as it looks. The attention to detail was so impressive, from the guitar layout as the ground entrance to the microphone lights in the suite, this resorts ROCKs, Literally! I can’t wait to go back!

I would love to help you plan your next vacation to Mexico!

All the best,
