Plan the Ultimate Vacation with Luxury Cruise and Tour

Plan the Ultimate Vacation with Luxury Cruise and Tour

When it comes to planning a luxurious cruise or a detailed tour abroad, I appreciate anyone who helps me figure out the best ways to save money and enjoy my time!  My friend Ken Heit, owner of Luxury Cruise and Tour, does just that. He knows how to make my vacation dreams a reality.  Ken specializes in luxury cruises and has been my go-to for planning fabulous trips with the family on-board some of the greatest ships in the world.

My first experience booking with Luxury Cruise and Tour was a few years ago when they planned a Middle East & Arabian Gulf Cruise with Azamara.  It was also my first time sailing with Azamara, so it was very helpful having their cruise experts fill me in on what kind of company they are and what I should expect.  I knew I was in good hands with Ken since he has over 30 years of experience in the travel industry with sales and management.  My cruise on Azamara was wonderful.  It was a mid size ship and the amenities and attention to detail for passengers was amazing.

This year, Luxury Cruise and Tour has planned the ultimate cruise holiday for my family and I in December!  We will be sailing with Crystal Cruises on-board one of their newly remodeled ships the Crystal Symphony.  Thanks to Ken, I was up to date on all the latest news about these modern ships and he made sure I was offered all of the top notch amenities.

His prices are always competitive and he never fails to get me the best prices on all major cruise lines.  We chose the Cape Hope Cruise which departs from Mauritius and sails to Cape Town, South Africa in just under two weeks.

I like how you can use the search engine on Luxury Cruise and Tour’s website to browse different cruises and tours around the world.  When you have a good idea of where you want to go and how, you can email Ken or give him a call.  All of his information is listed on the website.  If you want to stay in touch and know about certain specials and deals, I’d highly recommend signing up for the email offers.

Planning a luxury getaway can be overwhelming and stressful, but it really doesn’t have to be.  Do yourself a favor and work with experts who not only can save you money, but can be there for support before, during, and after your travel experience. The customer service is unbeatable, and the attention to detail and personal customization will help you create wonderful travel memories that will last a lifetime!  If you want to book a memorable cruise experience with Ken, head on over to Luxury Cruise and Tour.

      Some are definitely worth saving and splurging on for a special occasion!

      It was fabulous, Erica! My post will be out next month 🙂

  10. I’ve never been in a cruze trip, but I would like to try this, maybe in my next holidays. Let’s hope so.

    • Carmen Edelson

      Fingers crossed! Cruises are so much fun.

  11. This is an interesting concept. I would like to plan that for my next year’s vacation.

    • Carmen Edelson

      Great, I hope you have a fun 2018!

  12. When you are planning such a big and expensive trip, often once in a life time as cruises usually are, then it really is helpful to have someone help you plan it out.

    • Carmen Edelson

      I 100% agree, Nic!

  13. I haven’t been on a cruise ship in years – unless you consider a diving liveaboard a cruise ship (it was certainly very luxurious!). Can certainly understand the appeal of a luxury cruise, but recall reading that cruise ships have an enormous carbon footprint, so that is the main thing putting me off them at the minute. Would really love to know how the cruise ship industry is tackling this issue!

    • Carmen Edelson

      I know what you mean, Michelle and it’s worth doing some more research about it. I do know certain cruise lines are striving to be more eco-friendly.

  14. I have never been on a cruise (I am not sure it is for me). I like being able to wander off in different directions and would probably feel too ‘constrained’. Having said that, the facilities on the Crystal Symphony do look 1st class! I hope your cruise is very enjoyable!

    • Carmen Edelson

      Maybe you should try a European river cruise then! You can be exploring a new city every day 🙂

  15. I have not been on a cruise before, but it’s definitely something I want to do in the next few years. I would especially love a luxury one! I usually do the more budget travel… but sometimes you just have to treat yourself!!

    • Carmen Edelson

      Yes, every now and then for sure! They are perfect if you’re celebrating a special occasion 🙂

  16. Awesome write up and happy you mentioned about working with an expert. As a travel agent myself, I do recommend people to work with us than do it on their own. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your luxury travels. xoxo

    • Carmen Edelson

      Yes, I know you get it! Their services are so valuable.

  17. I wanna be want to travel a luxury cruise like these cruise and it looks so beautiful.

    • Carmen Edelson

      It’s an amazing experience!
