I am so happy to have found Lucy van den Brand and the Cruise & Travel Experts!
Planning a first cruise made me a little nervous, so turning to the experts seemed like the way to go – and experts they are. Lucy was a joy to work with right from the start, answering my million questions and taking care of arrangements for a fabulous Land & Sea Journey to Alaska. The trip was a dream vacation for my mother, sister, and me, and the planning was handled beautifully – we were able to relax and just enjoy the travel.
I will definitely turn to Lucy and the Cruise & Travel Experts for future cruise vacations and am happy to recommend them to friends, as well!

Our experience with Lucy has ONLY been positive. She puts her heart and soul into everything she does, whether it’s an email, an update, a suggestion, sending brochures, etc. She truly makes you feel as if you are the ONLY person she is working with.

Thank you for your wonderful and quick service. I would recommend you highly!

It was a wonderful trip and we had a fabulous time and Lucy did an amazing job arranging everything for us. We did want to ask if you arranged for the bottle of champagne in our first hotel room? If so it was a great gesture that we greatly appreciated. All the hotels were great and very comfortable and great locations. La Tomatina was a once in a life experience, actually I shouldn’t say that I would do it again and may do it again in the future if the opportunity is there. The company was great, very well organized and provided us with all the information and items that we needed to have the best time that day. I briefly looked at the photos that they posted and I don’t see any of us, but we are getting our own photos developed and if any turn out good I will send some to you. Again we wanted to thank you for your hard work and great job at organizing the trip for us. We will be recommending you to our friends for their trips and when our next trip comes up I will be reaching out to you again.

I know what the highlight of my summer was — Alaska! The cruise was very nice and a great way to see the beautiful state of Alaska. I felt like there were picture-perfect views and scenery everywhere you looked, day or night. The beauty, history, and and natural wildlife of the state is beyond compare! We hit the ground running every day with excursions and did not return back to the ship until it was time to leave….We did not want to miss a thing! Our favorite ports were Icy Strait Point and Skagway. Anchorage also has a lot to see and do and is a very manageable “city.”

I can’t thank you enough for all of your help.You made everything run so smoothly and effortlessly and took the stress out of the planning what was a very important and meaningful trip for us.

With my wedding steadily approaching, my Fiance and I knew that Hawaii was our ideal choice for the Honeymoon but the planning was extremely intimidating considering we both have never been before. Lucy came highly recommended and it couldn’t be more obvious why! Lucy made a daunting process seem simple and took all the stress out of planning a 12 day escape across the country. Everything from flights to hotels to location to adventure & excursions were set in place within our established budget with absolutely no hiccups along the way. My now Husband and I were amazed at how seamless the itinerary fell in to place. Lucy is prompt, thorough and a pleasure to work with!

Not only do I highly recommend Lucy to anyone with upcoming travel plans, we will be using her consistently for years to come!

Lucy has planned several trips for us, from a romantic tour across Italy, to a family vacation in Costa Rica. Lucy’s wealth of experience, local knowledge and breadth of contacts, helped make our vacations memorable and perfect! She really works hard to understand what you want from your vacation, and then customizes the experience to ensure you get exactly what you asked for. Her hotel selection, selection of excursions and tours, plus private tour guides, made our experiences ones that will last our lifetime. Thanks again Lucy and we will call you soon for our next adventure!
