I have the military to thank for my deeply rooted love of Europe. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to have called the Netherlands home for several years. Living abroad gave me the gift of cultural curiosity and left me with an ever-lasting appreciation of all of Europe’s treasures (especially the rivers). I will always be grateful to have had this experience early in my life for it has been the driving force behind the nearly 30 years of planning for other traveling explorers

Fitzgerald Travel was born from my desire to help every person have the opportunity to know how Europe feels and how it can change you in so many positive ways. She embraces you, fills your soul with history and can touch all your senses. There will be moments that leave you speechless. These are the moments that will turn into lifelong memories for you. Because I have such an indescribable connection with her, I want to do everything I can to help you be a part of the feeling.

Welcome aboard! 

River cruising is absolutely the best way for you to experience all of it!

River cruising provides you opportunity to sail comfortably through many countries and cultures effortlessly. I am so confident in this vacation choice that I have committed my entire career to helping curious travelers feel everything Europe has to offer.

 I can’t wait to bring it all to light for you!

For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to design travel. I love the research and planning. I remember getting my hands on everything I could to learn as much as possible about destinations, especially about the oceans. There is just something beautiful that speaks to me every time I feel the ocean breeze on my face. There is a quote that best describes how the ocean beckons my soul by L.M. Borges, “The beauty and the mystery of the ocean, fills our lives with wonder, vast beyond our imagination."   

On an ocean cruise, there are so many opportunities to take all that mystery in. The best moments of clarity about life have happened while watching the sun rise and set over the ocean. And even though we are in the middle of the ocean, we are on this amazing floating oasis, surrounded by luxury and being pampered, that you sometimes think you’re dreaming. Then you wake up at your next port of call and remember that this isn’t a dream, it’s paradise. My magic power is bringing you that experience of a lifetime.

Hard to believe it’s been 25 years of bringing you the best experiences and I look forward to sharing my magic with you for many years to come.
