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
Rosemary has organized many trips for me over the past few years. The last trip was a combination of land and cruise components. There were no issues for me to resolve as the arrangements were thorough. I have not ever encountered a major issue when Rosemary makes the arrangements. She always provides me with complete details, alternatives for my consideration and is prompt to reply to any questions or requests. I recommend her.

A Great Travel Agent
I have dealt with Rosemary for many years, and she knows my preferences and needs. Whether the trip is a long cruise or a short flight, Rosemary provides the information and options that I need, and also follows up after the trip to make sure everything went smoothly. I would highly recommend her to others.
