Sonya Sangster

Stellarton, Nova Scotia Travel Agent

An independent agent with Cruise Holidays of Oakville in Oakville, ON

Specializing in Land & Sea Vacations

From a young child in school, my interest was peaked by learning about different continents, countries, exciting cities and places all over the world.  I wanted to visit these places when I grew up, not just read about them…I wanted to be near the Thames River, stand in front of Buckingham Palace, marvel at Holland’s windmills and the Eifle tower, Germany’s Historic wartime houses, touch a Koala in Australia, and see all the exciting statues, monuments, museums, country sides, and learn about the different cultures.  As a little girl in Nova Scotia, Canada, I wanted to see it all!

During childhood, my family and I travelled through the northern United States and Eastern Canada, but my real travel didn’t start until 2001; when I made my first trip to Florida (one of the places on my list I wanted to visit).  I was hooked…couldn’t stop me now!  I was on my way to fulfilling so many of my travel dreams!

From that point, I have visited Europe, Australia, the Caribbean, Mexico, Western/Northern Canada, several western and southern US cities, by land, sea, bus and air, and have seen and done everything I mentioned above and more!   

After my life took a career path change, I joined Cruise Holidays in 2013, and haven’t looked back; it is a job more suited to me than any other career choice I had made and I’m loving it!  I find it so rewarding to plan fantastic trips for my clients.

Whether it is you alone, groups, couples, family reunions, destination wedding…no matter what the occasion, I would love to be able to fulfill your travel dreams, and assist you in making the greatest lifetime memories; you deserve that vacation you’ve always dreamed of!  I will work with you to determine the best possible choices for you:  your budget and destination desires, as well as the best method of travel…not everyone has the same travel desires, so let’s find what is right for you together!

I am looking forward to being part of your exciting journey…contact me to help you find the vacation of your dreams!

A Splendid Vacation!

Reviewed By EandB - Gananoque, ON | Traveled to Mexico
We were longing for a vacation in a warm climate but really unsure on where to go. Sonya immediately went into action and found lovely resorts in several locations. We were able to narrow the focus and made the decision. Because Sonya has traveled to many places herself, she shared valuable information that led us to choosing a wonderful vacation spot. She sent us extra information to make sure we were aware of the culture and activities we might plan. She was readily available to chat on the phone and answered all our questions. We would absolutely recommend her to others, so much so we are planning on using Sonya for our next trip.

She helped us out at the last hour

Reviewed By Muise - Halifax, NS | Traveled to
At the last minute we realized we didn't have a plane ticket for our 13 year old daughter to get to her Lacrosse Nationals. There had been a mix up and her ticket wasn't purchased with another family member. Sonya to the rescue! We had been trying to get a ticket so she could travel with someone and we couldn't make it work. Sonya, told us not to worry and had us all fixed up in no time. Thank you Sonya!

Our 25th Anniversary cruise

Reviewed By Brim65 - new glasgow | Traveled to Baltic Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
Sonya has helped us plan our vacation from the very beginning. We had a few ideas and relayed them to Sonya. From talking to her about past travels we wanted a busy cruise with interesting ports. We decided on the Baltic capital cruise with Norwegian and Sonya helped us take care of all the planning. Everything went smoothly except our flight from Toronto to Copenhagen . We were in two of three seats where we had someone in the aisle seat. She liked to spread out and we felt cramped . Once in Copenhagen, we contacted Sonya to see if she could change our seats on the flight home to two seats in the four seat option in the middle . Sonya got back to us right away with results. The cruise was amazing and the flight home was much more comfortable.

Sonya quickly and efficiently arranged our Viking River Cruise, air and transfers - all we had to do was show up. When documents did not arrive at our home because of courier error, Sonya immediately took responsibility for making sure they were found and delivered to us. Thanks to her, we were well prepared for this holiday. She also followed up to be sure that things had gone well.

She made our trip happen!

Reviewed By Patti - Moncton, New Brunswck | Traveled to
Sonya planned a cruise for a "girls vacation" for a group of us and she could not have done a better job. She formed a facebook / email group for us so we could all be in the planning stages while we were in our homes, scattered across Canada and the US. I feel we were well informed of each step along the way. Sonya made sure to keep us up to date on what to expect in each country we were to visit..on what we could do in each port etc. She also came along with us on the cruise and it was wonderful to have someone with her experience and knowledge along with us. Thanks again for the wonder trip!!

Another great travel experience.

Reviewed By The Happy Travellers - Sherwood Park Alberta | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
Sonya was great to work with from the moment that we messaged her to say “we wanna go on a cruise ?? “. She was always available to talk to us about our trip (3 hr time diff as we live on the other side of the country). We had many questions and things we wanted her to do for us. Sonya was more then happy to help us with booking hotels (decent hotels with a small budget) offering advise on rental cars, talking to the hotels to see if the shuttle required a car seat and to make sure there would be a crib as well as answering every other question we could come up with. The pre trip info and reminders she sent were great. This was our second time booking with Sonya and we have already booked next years vacation with her! She’s the best and we will never use anyone else. We have used other agents in the past and the only real benefit we ever received from them was a travel mug. With Sonya we didn’t receive a travel mug but we did receive a wealth of knowledge, info & assistance. ??

Alaska was our 1st cruise. My wife & I are experienced winter travellers; Cuba, every year. So travelling was routine for us except ... never been on a cruise. We were, naturally, a little apprehensive. Sonya was great, always answering our questions in a timely manner no matter how small. She was comforting and VERY helpful. THANK YOU Sonya!

Go big or stay home.

Reviewed By Debbie - Yukon, Canada | Traveled to
Sonya is the perfect travel agent. She worked with me to find the perfect destination for my first cruise. I have always been apprehensive about cruises, but she set my mind at ease by giving me every bit of information available about travelling at sea before we even decided on the destination. I travelled with a group of friends. Some of us hadn't seen each other in years and Sonya made all the right arrangements for us to spend a night together before we boarded the ship. Sonya even created a private facebook group so that we could all stay in touch and make plans. It was truly amazing! All through the process and excitement of waiting for this vacation to arrive, Sonya helped us make plans from shopping to excursions. She truly went above and beyond to support us and make this Reunion Vacation a dream come true. I would recommend Sonya as an exemplary travel planner. She enabled us to gather old memories and make new ones in the Caribbean.
