Destination Recommendation

So many to choose from for all different reasons and experiences. I would have to say South America was the most memorable. Beautiful people, fantastic scenery, so much to do and see, from Brazil to the Chilean Fjords everything is amazing.

Hotel Recommendation:

Park Hyatt Palace - Buenos Aires: It may be a little expensive but if you have a few nights before returning to Australia from Antarctica or the Amazon, a little soak in the oxygen pool and butler service might be just what you need.

Ship Recommendation:

Celebrity Solstice - She is a beautiful ship, the food is amazing, the décor is modern and it is easy to get around on this ship.

I would also recommend any Azamara ship as they can get into the smaller ports which allows for unique itineraries Azamara also offers great service, food and beverages included.

My Tip for Holiday Planning:

Plan an experience, the breathtaking views, the people, the smells, the mode of transport are what you remember the most.
Try not to plan (or cram) too much at a destination, as sometimes you need to explore and enjoy like locals.

Karen Wright's Background

My family and I travelled around Australia and South Pacific while our kids were young. When the kids got older, I went overseas to tick Greece off my bucket list.

What do you do when you start to tick things off the list? You add more to the bucket list.

I loved planning holidays and wanted to help others plan their dream holidays, so what better way than study travel and work in the industry.

When I started working in this company I hadn’t been on a cruise, I have now been on many cruises and never looked back and always look forward to the next one.
