Celebrity Cruises Specialist

Aboard the Celebrity Reflection
Aboard the Celebrity Reflection

Cruise vacations appeal to a wide range of clients, and I feel confident that my clients trust me to deliver a great experience aboard Celebrity ships. Celebrity Cruises offer distinctive options and amenities, beautiful ships, and enticing itineraries. Every Celebrity vacation is a unique experience with great value. Their sailings in the Caribbean, Alaska, Europe, and throughout the world, are designed to entertain, enchant and inform. 


Because I live in Florida, which is the cruise capital of the world, I have been invited to tour and dine aboard many of the ships in the fleet. I was privileged to attend the inauguration of the APEX, which is one of three stunning new-style Celebrity ships. 


I have completed all the required cruise line certification courses and I keep current about updates and regulations, new ships and exciting itineraries. As a Celebrity preferred partner, I often have exclusive perks that I happily offer to my clients.


I ask pertinent questions of each client to determine their preferences, and I am mindful of budget constraints. Whether you travel as a couple, with children, or as part of a large family group, I offer suggestions that new and repeat clients find helpful. 


In 2012, I accompanied a group of about 50 friends and family on a Caribbean sailing aboard Celebrity Reflection. It was a wonderful experience, and I would love to host other large groups on future cruises. It can really enhance everyone's vacation to know that someone is readily available to assist with every detail. I also planned a fund-raising luncheon in support of a women's organization on board the Celebrity Reflection. That, too, was a huge success and resulted in several cabins being booked in support of a worthy cause.


Destination knowledge is key, and I offer advice on visas, vaccination requirements, excursions and cultural events in foreign ports. I am a bilingual English-Spanish speaker, and cater to clients from South America as well. Introducing new clients to the joy of cruising is a continuing goal, and I have many satisfied return customers. I love helping them make sound choices about the way they spend their vacation dollars. 


How can I help make the most out of your next Celebrity Cruise?

Incredible Family Caribbean Cruise
Ilana has put together life changing experiences for us for many years. She has expert knowledge and expertise to work with us as we travel the world. She also utilizes expert resources to help her to make our trips that much more special. Some of the trips she has arranged for us include a Greek Islands cruise with pre and post land in Athens and Istanbul, a Costa Rica and Panama Canal cruise with pre and post land in Costa Rica and Panama City and the next adventure is to be in China and Japan. The most recent was a Caribbean cruise for 13 of our family to celebrate my in-laws 65th anniversary and mother in laws 85th birthday. Ilana made it a seamless process and arranged everything for us!
