What People Are Saying

We are no strangers to international travel. Having family who reside overseas, we travel often. But as my daughters grew older, I recognized it was time to show them the iconic landmarks and cities they were studying in their classes at school. Emma found us the perfect cruise!

On an 11-night cruise, 9 of those days were in port. We saw so much, and the girls were finally able to see for themselves what makes European history so vibrant and captivating. Emma found an excellent hotel in Rome with a huge family suite so we could all stay together and booked us private tours in places where we had specific things we wanted to see – like Florence. We are very much looking forward to working with Emma again for a Northern European cruise we intend to take in the next few years.
