Gayle has always been there for us, guiding us in the right direction on such complicated matters as insurance, choice of itinerary, and getting the best possible deal.

Just a month back from our first ever cruise we were looking to go on another. We did a bit of Internet homework and got an idea of what we wanted but nothing we could find was just right. We went back to Gayle Takashima, who did a wonderful job planning our first cruise, and she promptly found several cruises that fit our parameters, put a hold on a special cabin (aft facing), offered a low deposit and additional shipboard credit. What's not to like? So we booked the trip that we didn't find, got the ideal cabin that we weren't aware of and a good price thanks to Gayle. It was too easy so naturally I was suspicious but it all worked out wonderfully. Experience counts and Gayle has it.
- Stan and Kathy
Gayle is very easy to work with. She is responsive to my requests for information and is extremely helpful in getting my trips planned. I have some very specific travel preferences and Gayle is always ready to tackle getting my ideas and preferences met. I've been working with Gayle for years and she has always taken very good care of us.
