Cruise, All-Inclusive, Ireland & Hawaii Specialist

Where will your travel dreams take you?
Where will your travel dreams take you?

I am fortunate to have travelled throughout my life. My first trip abroad was a four month excursion to England, France and Spain as an exchange student and I haven’t looked back since! I started ocean cruising 30 years ago and have enjoyed close to a dozen sailings both in the Caribbean and Mediterranean. I have enjoyed the Incentive Travel that I have assisted to organize the past 20 years and have travelled with groups to such exotic locations as 

  • Singapore
  • Thailand
  • Hong Kong
  • Tunisia
  • Italy, Spain, Germany, Czech Republic  
  • Bermuda, Aruba, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Costa Rica 
  • Arizona, California
  • Nova Scotia, Quebec, Alberta, British Columbia 

 With property in Florida, a time-share in Hawaii and family in Ireland, I have researched and enjoyed countless trips with our kids, to many wonderful destinations.

Whether its been 

  • walking Main St. USA, or flying through Space Mountain at Walt Disney World, 
  • driving the Road to Hana on Maui, or climbing Diamond Head Crater in Honolulu,
  • pub crawling in Dublin or hiking the Ring of Kerry

I know that the planning I've always enjoyed, helped make these precious times with family some our most wonderful memories.

I have travelled extensively for business, some years spending over 175 days in the air, and

  • have earned close to 2,000,000  Aeroplan miles &
  • countless free flights on US airlines. 

I know the cities and provinces of Canada very well and have enjoyed travel to many regions throughout The USA.

In addition to my personal travel experiences, I have studied many different facets of travel and am now a 

  • Certified Special Needs Travel Advisor
  • Certified Air Canada Specialist
  • Certified Graduate - Disney College of Knowledge 
  • Certified Uniworld River Cruise Specialist
  • Certified Princess Cruise Specialist
  • Certified CIE Tours Specialist - Ireland
  • Certified CIE Tour Specialist - England, Scotland, Wales
  • Certified Tauck Specialist
  • Certified Dominican Republic Specialist
  • Certified Cayman Islands Specialist
  • Certified Sarasota, FL Specialist
  • Certified Hawaiian Islands  Specialist

But beyond my experience and expertise, I know that the most important promise I give to you is my commitment to always help in giving you the information you need to make informed travel decisions - such as

  • How to avoid those long line-ups at Disney World or Universal Studios
  • How to make sure your ship stateroom is not located right above a nightclub that doesn’t close until the early morning hours
  • How you can enhance your European river cruise by travelling with a chef and shopping the local markets for tonight’s dinner
  • How to choose the best All-Inclusive Caribbean resort for you, with the least amount of transfer time from an airport or one that allows you to also enjoy the amenities of a sister-resort
  • How to make the most of a Hawaiian vacation by visiting more than one island, at very little extra cost
  • How to get the most out of a trip to Ireland by travelling in June or September

I have enjoyed all of my own travel, been fortunate enough to help 100’s more explore the world and will be pleased to treat your vacation planning just as I treat my own. That is my commitment to you. 

Allow me to help you make 

TRAVEL MEMORIES,,, WELL PLANNED

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!

Reviewed By Bet - London, Ontario Canada | Traveled to Barbados ~ Caribbean
Working with Steve was a wonderful experience — one that we plan to repeat for our next adventure!

Steve was knowledgeable, detailed and most of all patient — we changed our minds — often. From the start he listened closely about where & when we wanted to go; put together 5 possibilities in a well-organized, easy-to-understand package; listened some more about ‘issues’ we’d experienced in past trips; worked around those issues and presented the final comprehensive option — which we took immediately.

He then organized the entire trip for us — the flights (best seats ever), the Barbados Resort, the cruise, side tours off the ship, and even a list of things to take (like our passports — all the little details). He even negotiated room upgrades at the resort and on the ship.

Steve answered our questions, calmed our concerns, made himself available for more questions, and made great suggestions to make our trip even better. It was a pleasure working with him.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Steve Cole responded:
Thanks Bet, it was so fulfilling to research and book this for you and Dave. I am so pleased that I have been able to help you make Anniversary Travel Memories... Well Planned!
