Alaska, All-Inclusive, and European River Cruises

My focuses are on Alaska, All-Inclusive Resorts and European river cruise vacations. Having been in the travel business since 1986, I like to say, I am “Powered by Experience.” It’s that experience that allows me to assist you in booking your trip of a lifetime! I make vacation planning easy by eliminating all of the footwork you would otherwise have to do… like surfing the internet for hours, sometimes for days, trying to find a trip you'd like! Remember, this is your vacation.

My Travel Specialties

European River Cruise Expert

Imagine strolling along the winding cobble-stoned streets of Arles, France, stopping to enjoy a delicious cappuccino  as you and your companion think about what’s next on your list of fabulous sights. Day dream about attending your own private Mozart concert in Vienna.  Fantasize about your exclusive,...

Alaska and the Yukon Destination Specialist

I have been to Alaska 7 times so far, as it is one of my top destinations that I love to visit.  Each time I see it differently and in a new way!  I enjoy escorting groups, large and small to this beautiful area. 

The 7-nt cruises that sail roundtrip out of Seattle or Vancouver only touch 1/8...

River/Ocean Cruise and All-Inclusive Specialist

I've always been something of a wanderer, having moved on a regular basis as a young child. I was lucky to have many national parks as my backyard, giving me opportunities to explore: Zion National Park, Everglades National Park, Shenandoah National Park and Wind Cave National Park.

Celebrity Cruises Specialist

Being a travel agent is the only job I’ve ever had, and the reason for that is simple: it doesn’t ever feel like work. I love my job, I love helping my clients take the trips of their dreams, and I especially love Celebrity Cruises. I love everything about them—the Lawn Club, the nightly world-class...

My Travel Stories

Active and Discovery on the Rhone River in France

If you have ever wanted to do a river cruise in France, this is THE BEST!!  I absolutely loved the ACTIVE and DISCOVERY cruise, since it had a lot more to offer, as far as tours and you were MORE IMMERSED in towns that you cruise through.  There were so many excursions where you can hike, bike, Spelunk...Read more.

We are seeing the world with Deb's help!
I have been using Deb Mitchell since before her last name was Mitchell! She has been excellent in everything that I have asked for. She has probably done 15 - 20 cruises for me. I have recommended her to family and friends and they have always been very satisfied with her. Deb knows the travel business extremely well and has offered me many tips that have come in handy.

Deb MItchel - Outstanding, customer service.
We chose to communicate our Southern Mediterranean trip with Deb rather then the cruise line because we had seen from past experiences that Deb would take the role as our advocate rather then an 'order taker' from the cruise line.
There were several instances, primarily regarding our flights where Deb stepped up and supported us.

We LIKE Deb and Cruise Holidays!
