Custom Ocean and River Cruise Experiences

As a certified cruise professional, I offer my clients attention to detail and expertise in planning every step of the way.

As a result of traveling to scores of destinations including the South Pacific, Australia, Europe, Alaska, Canada/New England, and many island nations within the Caribbean, my clients feel comfortable trusting me to plan their perfect cruise or land based vacation.

My clients have the luxury of experiencing ports of call with my own personally selected guides for their shore excursions. They see their new adventure up close and personal and on a schedule that suits their needs. No more riding the motor coach to the next photo op and taking pictures through the glass.

Leave the cookie cutter tours to the cruise lines.

With over 40 cruises on various ocean cruise lines and European river boats and hundreds of hours of industry and supplier training, my job is make sure that “nothing falls through the cracks.”

Don't leave your hard earned vacation or milestone celebration to the unknown on the Internet. I look forward to having the opportunity to plan your next cruise or land based memory.

Distinctive Voyages

Iconic Oia, Santorini, Greece
Iconic Oia, Santorini, Greece

In 2014 I had the privilege of serving as the host on a unique cruise program called Distinctive Voyages. This select group of passengers aboard the newly reimagined Crystal Symphony enjoyed a private cocktail reception, exclusive shore event in Barcelona, private tours on the ship and the services of their concierge host throughout the cruise.  I have had the pleasure of hosting three other DV sailings since then.  In 2022 there will be over 300 sailings in the Distinctive Voyages program. Ask me how you can take part in one of these exclusive offerings.

Exceeded our expectations
Our AMA vacation was a river cruise ( AMA Sonata ) on The Danube. It was a pleasure working with Tim Walsh. He is professional ~ very knowledgeable ~ experienced and courteous. Tim was very patient and thorough answering all our questions. He addressed our concerns for first time river cruise travelers with total understanding which made planning the trip easy. The river cruise ship was absolutely beautiful .... the staff was fantastic. The trip exceeded our expectations. There were no unpleasant surprises....none. We will certainly contact him again for our next vacation.

Amazing trip!
My friends and I (a large group of 11) had such a wonderful experience working with Tim Walsh. Tim was very resourceful and always easily reachable to discuss questions and concerns. He made sure that all of our needs were met and that the hotel and transportation staff had received all of our information and requests months in advance. Would highly recommend Tim's service if planning a group (or even a couple's) vacation!

Tim Walsh responded:
Thank you for the kind words Darla. I enjoy working with cruise "newbies" since there is so much information to share and the process can be confusing. It's nice to know that I can help guide you through the maze. I look forward to working with you and your family in the near future. Tim
