Family Reunions

Summer’s here, and that means there will be lots of family reunions coming up over the next two months. It’s the perfect time of year to get together somewhere warm and sunny and spend some quality time with relatives that you just don’t get to see often enough.

I’m skipping the “warm and sunny” part this year and heading to Alaska instead, but I will be traveling with friends and family, including my mom, my brother, my sister, her in-laws, etc. In previous years, we’ve done mini-reunions in Cape Cod, Long Beach Island (NJ), and even Poland (one of my brothers lives in Krakow!) but this one will be very special because I’m introducing my family to cruising. And I know they are going to love it!

If you’ve been thinking about getting the whole family together this summer, check out this very timely article from USA Today on “Ten Great Places for a Family Reunion“.  Or, just give me a call — I can not only suggest the perfect location, but take care of the travel arrangements as well. Just don’t call during the first two weeks of July, as I’ll be somewhere in the wilds of Alaska!


You provided excellent guidance for us. I appreciated that you really had us think about what was most important to us when we were selecting the right cruise – and not to totally focus on what other people had to say. THANK YOU for helping to make this a memorable trip for our family! It really was a trip of a lifetime!

The level of service we experienced was out of this world (and we did NOT make it easy on Ann). We weren’t quite sure where we wanted to go, when we would be able to go, or what “vibe” we were going for. After asking us some key questions (what we liked, didn’t like, why, etc.) Ann helped us narrow down our trip details and planned the honeymoon of our dreams. She helped book some of our excursions, answered some emergency questions while abroad and was always available/willing to help. I think it’s safe to say we won’t be using anyone else for future travel planning – Ann is a rockstar!
