Who We Are

Jesse Taylor

Cruise Specialist & Travel Designer

My family always traveled, and that desire to travel and explore has always stuck with me. During my college tenure, I was fortunate to start a job with a major cruise line in South Florida over 20-years ago. My passion for travel exploded, and I never looked back.


After learning the cruise side of the industry working with some of the best mentors at the largest cruise company in the world, I decided I wanted to venture out and focus on more than just one company. I was given this opportunity to join a very large cruise-focused agency as an American Express Travel Services Representative for over 8-years catering to Platinum and Centurion customers as a top performing advisor.


After my tenure as an American Express Travel Services Representative, we were invited to the Virtuoso network. I also managed a Virtuoso branch agency, and large sales teams, for over a decade. I also had the honor of making it into the top 1% of Virtuoso Advisors making the prestigious Virtuoso Cruise Icons in 2019 & 2020, and named by Conde Nast as a Cruise Specialist. This experience, along with a high attention to detail, and a true desire to give my clients an unforgettable experience that will stay with them for a lifetime, is what have lead to my success in the industry. 

I handle all premium and luxury leisure travel. I specialize in river cruises, ocean cruises, expedition cruises, land tours, and building customized trips for single travelers up to large groups. I also handle family travel; we have three young boys, and travel frequently, so we understand the logistics with making a family vacation seamless.


My goal is to keep you coming back, and hopefully bragging to your friends and family.

Cruise Specialist & Travel Designer

My career in the travel industry started with my family traveling through Canada and the United States as a little girl, and the travel bug stayed.  Being an enthusiast of traveling, I received a degree in Tourism at the College April-Fortier, which is an important institution in Quebec’s travel industry. From there I decided to work on cruise ships and travel the world. After working on ships traveling to the Caribbean, Alaska, Canada/New England and Europe, I decided to continue in the industry and work as a travel advisor and share the experience of travel to my clients.

With over 20-years of experience as a travel advisor, and many more working onboard with various cruise lines, I specialize in ocean cruises, river cruises, expedition cruises, and land tours. I work with couples to multi-generational groups, and all clients in between, to help build experiences that will last a lifetime. 

With my travel experience, I love advising my clients on what to see and do, where to eat, and what to try. I am here to make sure your journey is an adventure from the day you leave your home until the day you come back. 

Whatever you need, we can help. Call us today to start planning your next journey.
