Cruise, Travel

MSC is the largest cruise company in Europe, and other parts of the world, and in the last 5 years, this cruise line has been trying to break into the North American market. MSC offers gorgeous ships, exotic itineraries at a fantastic price for all guests, but they also have perfected the ship within a ship experience with their yacht club. This is mass market cruising at its absolute best, and I’m excited to introduce you to MSC’s yacht club.

Italy, Travel

Despite having been to Italy several times, including studying there for six months in college, I had never been to Venice! On my most recent Italy trip, a few days in Venice was at the top of my must see list. Venice also seemed like the perfect place to visit with the kids. And it did not disappoint, we all had such much fun exploring this unique city and I am so excited to share my top things to do in Venice with Kids.

Last week, my family had the most fun sailing on the worlds largest cruise ship, Royal Caribbean’s Icon of the seas. This ship just started service in January 2024, and is sailing week long itineraries out of Miami, Florida. I know in our area there has been a ton of commercials for the ship and lots of posts on social media, but is the Icon of the Seas really worth the hype and the high price tag? Keep reading to find out my thoughts and my full Icon of the Seas review.

Last month, I had the pleasure of finally traveling to the beautiful island of St. Lucia! Hubby and I had a much needed, kid-free getaway and of course we chose to stay at a Sandals Resort for our adults only trip. Since the Sandals Grande St. Lucian is the largest resort, and the one I sell the most of to clients, I figured that was the best place for us to make our home resort. We did ultimately get to experience all three Sandals Resorts in St. Lucia, but here is my Sandals Grande St. Lucian Review.

Last week, I had the pleasure of heading to St. Lucia with the hubby for a few days to relax, reconnect, and of course tour some resorts. We stayed at the Sandals Grande St. Lucian and as a certified Sandals specialist I was invited to also come and tour Sandals Regency La Toc and Sandals Halcyon Beach. This was a great way to get to experience all three Sandals resorts in St. Lucia and I’m so excited to be able to help you choose the best St. Lucia Sandals Resort in for you.

Travel, Universal Orlando

I’ve visited Universal Orlando four times this year and have sent countless clients since the re-opening. One of the things I love about Universal Orlando is there is truly something for everyone in a Universal Orlando vacation. From budget to luxury and everything in between, Universal can be enjoyed with your family, extended family, friend group, as an adult-only trip – however you want to do it! And believe it or not, despite being a “theme park” vacation, you can 100% do a luxury Universal Orlando trip if you are looking for a full-service, VIP, high end getaway!

This summer, our family vacation time was limited to five nights. Yes, just five nights that my kids crazy summer schedules were both free so we could do a little getaway. We decided that a relaxing beach vacation would be perfect for a five night trip, and I had been wanting to experience an Iberostar property. I have sent lots of guests to Iberostar Selection Cancun (and the adults only Coral Tower) so I knew this would be a solid choice. We had the most wonderful vacation and I keep reading for my full Iberostar Selection Cancun Review.
