Oakville, ON
An independent agent with Cruise Holidays of Oakville in Oakville, ON, a Travel Leaders network affiliate agency.

Customized cruise and land vacations.

Travel has always been a love of mine. From the time I graduated from university and spent six weeks in Europe I knew that I wanted to be a travel agent or a flight attendant. However I took a detour for a number of years and worked in our family business before starting on my “travel” career in 1997.

I’ve been told that I’m a natural at helping my clients plan their cruise and land vacations. My excitement coupled with extensive knowledge of various cruise lines and ships, as well as a multitude of worldwide destinations keep my clients coming back time and again. I am privileged to say that I have been helping many of my clients for more than eighteen years.

I have sailed on:
• Celebrity Cruises
• Disney Cruise Line
• Holland America Line
• Norwegian Cruise Line
• Princess Cruises
• Royal Caribbean International
• Oceania Cruises
• Regent Seven Seas
• SeaDream Yacht Club
• AMA Waterways
• Viking River Cruises.

These cruises have taken me to:
• Alaska
• The Caribbean
• West Coast
• Bermuda
• The Mediterranean
• River cruising in Europe on the Rhine and Danube


Besides my love of seeing the world I have a passion for golf. Generally “I look forward to coming to work in the morning - although some days it’s very tempting to by-pass the office and head to the golf course!”

My Travel Stories

Normandy and Paris River Cruise

The opportunity to cruise on one of Uniworld’s newest and luxurious ships was not to be missed. The beautifully decorated interior mirrored the gorgeous scenery along the Seine. I traveled in August 2017 and was blessed with perfect weather – Paris was not stifling hot, and I wasn’t cold while visiting...Read more.

Trip of a lifetime
Rosemary has been my cruise specialist for over 18 years. She has taken the time to get to know my wife and me so that she can work with us in ensuring that our trips are always exceptional, whether we're looking for lots of site-seeing or simply getting away for some R&R. Rosemary can take care of all the details to the point where all we have to do is arrive at the airport for departure and everything from there on is taken care of.
