We Suggest Personalized Lifetime Memories Moments

Consider this scenario - You are chilling in your private cabana poolside on your luxury cruise, and soon your butler is at your side with another frosty pina colada. You take a sip while watching the sun sink below the horizon, the rays painting an orange-colored sky and casting a kaleidoscope of soft colors over the waves. You think "Now this cruise is a luxury vacation."

Our clients tell us they appreciate the rapport we establish with them to understand their precise detailed dreams, and thank us for arranging extra complimentary amenities and benefits that make the experience very special. A perfect example would be - perhaps you have a special anniversary event in mind to remember an intimate previous life experience (i.e., a wedding or honeymoon moment) you would like us to re-create. We will not only carefully re-create that memory, but plan all components of your luxury adventure so that the phases move seamlessly from one part to the next. You will be thrilled you trusted us with your lifetime memories.

Our Owner's Background

Our owner is fortunate that her parents gave her travel experiences at an early age by taking lengthy car trips throughout the U.S. every summer; and also several European bus tours throughout that continent, during her adolescent years.

How Her Experiences Led Her to Travel Designing

It all began with one very memorable event occurring at the age of 8, her first cruise. During Christmas vacation break, her family sailed from New York City past the Statue of Liberty for a month-long round-trip voyage through the Caribbean and along eastern South America as far south as Buenos Aires, Argentina. During that awesome adventure, she learned that kids of all ages in a completely different cultural environment enjoyed the same life experiences including opening Christmas gifts. She was hooked on cruising and traveling to foreign lands and knew she wanted to travel and design journeys the rest of her life! Her love of travel and passion to get the most out of each adventure throughout early adulthood gave her the desire to help others create lifetime memories.

Fast forward a few years -- her inspiration to assist others achieve the same cultural rewards prompted her to begin training at a local travel agency and after a few years and a change of ownership, she decided it was time to develop Getaway Dreams Come True Travel. 

Her Travel Skills and Credentials

She is a Certified Travel Associate (CTA), having earned her designation from The Travel Institute, the oldest non-profit certification organization in the travel industry. These credentials require that she have at least 18 months of travel industry work experience, complete rigorous certification and testing, and continue to fulfill stringent education credit requirements each year. In addition, she and our travel consultants are CLIA™ (the cruise industry's organization) Certified Cruise Counselors and continually update their education online and during onsite inspections with individual cruise lines, as well as at travel destinations. Also, she has completed individual cruise line Academy Courses to achieve Expert Status in Ocean and River Cruising.
