Our Planning Services

Picture yourself slicing through azure seas as you consider your evening options—a cocktail on the deck while the sunsets, a celebrity-chef inspired dinner, or a Broadway caliber show? Or imagine gliding past castles, vineyards, and vibrant historical cities—before you dock in a picture-perfect port to start exploring.

When you cruise, you don’t have to imagine. Luxury river and ocean cruising provides the ultimate blend of utter relaxation and rousing adventure. Every indulgence is right at your fingertips, and new discoveries await each time you dock.

There’s only one problem … planning your cruise escape? It’s not so relaxing. In fact, it’s all too easy to get overwhelmed by the endless options (which cruise line? Which itinerary? Which room category? Which package??). You don’t have the time—or the expertise—to sift through it all with confidence. We do.

Let go of the stress—and leave it all to us.

Discover a world of wonder beyond every river bend or wave, on your custom-crafted cruise journey.

Fair Winds & Fantastic Adventure Are Headed Your Way

 Leave all the research, planning, guidance, and booking to us, so you can set sail on an effortless adventure.

Our Cruise Planning Process

Step 1

Let's Connect

You’ll start by scheduling a free consultation with one of us—Lisa F. if you’re interested in river cruising, or Lisa C. if you’re craving an ocean cruise. During this call, we get to know you (and you get to know us!) as we listen to your ideas, interests, and cruise vacation goals.

Think of this as a casual coffee date to determine if we are a good match to work together—no pressure! We’ll also review the details of what is included in our professional planning services. Our planning service rates begin at $375 per couple. If you decide we’re the cruise planning “captains” for you, we’ll send you your fee invoice and schedule you on our planning calendar so we can get started!

This is where we shine for you! With our laser-focus on the rivers and the ocean, we’re experts at selecting the perfect product for you from our preferred brands (we only work with the best of the best). Your personality traits and travel style will lead the way as we match them with the ideal cruise line that blends both those attributes together. We present you with options and keep going until we find the right itinerary that fills your heart and soul with excitement.

Step 3

Managing The Details

This is where the fun and magic start to happen! Now, our research and planning on your selected itinerary begins in earnest. Relax as we work behind the scenes to gather requests, confirm reservations, manage bookings, and fine tune all the details of your journey.
