The internet is great. There’s tons of information about river cruises. But it can be overwhelming. This River Cruise Joy blog helps, but sometimes, you want advice…

from a real person,

from a travel professional,

from someone that gets to know you personally.

That’s where I come in. We work together to find the best river cruise fit for you. I ask you questions to match your interests to the right itinerary and river cruise line. You ask me questions to feel more at ease about your river cruise adventure. From start to finish, I am here – working hard for you, so you can have the river cruise experience you deserve.

I keep it easy. You can choose from two plans. Keep reading and select what is right for you.

Simple Plan

The Simple Plan works best for those that have done a lot of their own research but want just a bit more extra guidance from a travel professional.

What’s in it for you:

  • Advice from a certified river cruise specialist
  • AdviceĀ for simple pre and post extensions
  • Exclusive perks and VIP treatment
  • Cruise Management – After your cruise is booked, I continuously monitor your sailing looking for additional value added amenities and special promotions.
  • Assistance before, during, and after your cruise
Simple Plan Fee: $99*

*The Simple Plan Fee is waived for River Cruise Joy subscribers. Sign up HERE!

Premium Plan

The Premium Plan includes everything that the Simple Plan offers, but goes above and beyond. It is best for those that want a true travel concierge service.

What’s in it for you:

  • A custom designed river cruise experience that can include extensive pre and post extensions
  • Hand selected hotel stays for your pre and post stay
  • Unique experiences that can include a private guide and driver, photography sessions, and more!
Premium Plan Fee: $299

Planning fees are non-refundable, non-transferable, and paid upfront.
