What I Do

At Travel by John, I know that planning, choosing and booking your cruise or all-inclusive resort vacation can be time consuming and confusing.

Planning your cruise or all-inclusive resort vacation can quickly get over budget and stressful, causing your vacation to be full of anxiety and frustration.

It shouldn’t be that way.

When I plan vacations for my clients, they feel like they are getting the vacation that is perfect for them, their travel style and their budget.

So sit back and relax while I put together a vacation that will bring a smile to your face when someone says “remember the time we went to…”

Cruise Vacations

Cruise Vacations are the best way to see several locations at one time and just unpack your bags once.  They are also a great value for families & groups.

Your Advocate

Part of the advantage of working with a personal travel planner is that I have worked hard to build relationships with cruise lines & resorts sales and customer service representatives.  I am your advocate if something goes wrong.

Deal Access

One of things people like about working with me is that I get access to deals that you just can’t find anywhere else. Our volume helps you get great pricing.  Sometimes even better than booking direct!


I help clients have unforgettable vacation experiences at beautiful destinations all over the world, but here are some that clients want over and over again.
