As a nurse, safety is my #1 priority for all travelers. I am passionate about creating travel experiences, but first and foremost, I am a nurse, and I am 100% staying on top of the current situation to ensure that future cruises are safe for all guests. I am happy to answer any questions you may have regarding precautions our cruise line partners are taking, booking refundable cruises and airfare, or anything else you can think of!

Sincerely,
Kathy Speer Shoaf
