Arvada, CO

Group Travel Specialist

Hello!  I am an experienced Travel Professional (20+ years!), specializing in vacations for groups as well as individuals and families.  During those 20 years, I have formed strategic partnerships with vacation companies and cruise lines, which results in fantastic negotiating power to get you the best prices and customized amenities!

I love working with groups of all kinds and sizes, so if you have a group of family and friends, a family or class reunion, or even a corporate convention or incentive in mind, contact me today!  My goal is to make it easy for you to plan your vacation or group event by helping you select the right ship, destination or resort for your needs, and then coordinating everything including reservations, registration, meeting space, cocktail receptions, and customized group activities!  I host large groups frequently, to make sure everything runs smoothly throughout your event.

My favorite destinations include Norway, Scotland, Italy, Barcelona, Hawaii and Alaska...and of course, being from Colorado, I love the tropical Caribbean, especially in the winter!  I can personally recommend resorts, hotels, cruises, tours and activities, depending on what type of vacation you've got in mind.

I'm excited to hear from you and go to work customizing your perfect vacation!

Outstanding added value at no additional cost.
We have worked with Diane for several years. Rather, Diane has worked "for us" for several years.

Diane worked hard on assisting us with arranging a wedding at a resort in Mexico. It was hassle-free for us as Diane handled all of the details related to rates, travel plans, rooms, extra credits and benefits, etc. We could not have had the wonderful experience we had without her knowledge and guidance.

Additionally, we have be annual participants on an "Oldies" cruise that Diane coordinates for many Denver area (and beyond) folks. It is a seamless experience from the time we get to the Denver airport until our return 8 or 9 days later. Transportation to and from the airport in Florida (where the cruise ship departs and returns) to a hotel upon arrival and all of the details in between are all handled. We don't ever have anything with which to be concerned. It is all handled at a very high professional level.

You can't put a price on the value added by Diane in so many a

It's Great to Have a Friend in the Travel Business
I first met Diane as a result of a radio show she had talking about her company and services as a Travel Agent. One trip she was promoting in conjunction with the radio station was an oldies "Rock and Roll" Cruise. That was 6 years ago and we recently returned from our 5th such trip - each one more fun than the last.

Over this time Diane has always been extremely knowledgeable and ready to help in any way possible. She has a long-term view for her business so she and her staff keep the clients needs in mind, rather than pushing more expensive trips for short term commissions. Beyond the Rock and Roll cruises, Diane has helped us with other vacations - one a 40th Anniversary Cruise and another a great trip to Nashville/Memphis.

We would gladly (already have) recommend Diane and Cruise Holidays to friends and family along with anyone looking for help planning any type of vacation trip. And remember, there are no fees for these services. It's a great deal.
