I caught the “travel bug” in my early 20’s when I left home to join the Delta Queen Steamboat Company as a Purser. I enjoyed cruising up and down the Ohio and Mississippi River, but after two years, I decided to go big and move on to Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. I worked on board Royal Caribbean ships throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, and Bermuda for over 10 years. I visited well over 20 islands and experienced many of the resorts first hand during my career.
While I was off ships on vacation, I used this time to further my travels. I’ve traveled throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, Europe, and Australia. I’m an Accredited Cruise Counselor and love talking about and planning the best cruise experience for my clients!
Why Work With Me
I am passionate about travel and want to share that passion with you! With over 10 years traveling throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, and Bermuda, I can leverage my vast knowledge of the islands and the accommodations they offer to help my clients choose the best destination or cruise itinerary to fit their perfect destination wedding, honeymoon, anniversary or romantic getaway.
You can rely on my detail-oriented/meticulous approach to ensure you and your guests have a seamless plan with lifelong memories focused on your unique romantic getaway. I can assist with all aspects of your romantic getaway, including excursions/tours, spa services, dining reservations, etc. In some locations you can even book a romantic dinner on the beach!
As a Romance Travel Specialist, I’m dedicated to getting to know each couple, learn about their unique likes and dislikes, and then offer suggestions and ideas that are customized to their specific needs.

How I Got Started in Romance Travel
When I first became a travel agent, I thought I would be a “Caribbean Specialist” but ended up booking all kinds of trips and dabbled in a little bit of everything. As time went on, I realized that I needed to specialize in something that I not only enjoy and am passionate about, but something that I’m good at. My favorite bookings were my “romance” clients – honeymooners, couples planning a destination wedding, or those celebrating a special occasion, specifically to Caribbean destinations. So I became a Romance Travel Specialist!
I love being able to alleviate the stress and frustration that comes with coordinating all of the elements of an event or vacation. I take care of the details, while my clients sit back, relax and enjoy!

April and Seth’s Destination
Azul Fives – Wedding & El Dorado Royale – Honeymoon
I can’t put into words how amazing Laura is. She helped me plan my destination wedding to Mexico with 80 guests. She was friendly, patient, and listened to my concerns over the course of OVER A YEAR as my wedding was being planned. She was responsive when I needed her and she was thorough when I had questions. She recommended a beautiful hotel and honeymoon resort that we were more than pleased with. She was detailed and helped all of my guests arrange their hotel and flight. I highly recommend using Laura for ANY of your travel needs! Laura, we will be speaking again soon to book our next trip! THANK YOU!
Joanna and Johnny’s Romantic Getaway
The Sands at Grace Bay, Turks and Caicos
I “accidentally” found Laura through social media. Lucky me. I couldn’t have asked for a better travel agent. If you’re looking for someone to be very responsive to your needs and to really do research on your destination, Laura is your gal. Although she had not been to the destination I ultimately chose, you wouldn’t have known it. She really took the time to look into everything from flights to resorts to excursions and everything in between. I am lucky she didn’t fire me — since I was emailing her every other day with more questions. She was extremely attentive to my needs and she made it all happen perfectly. I’m very fortunate to have found such a sweet travel agent who really thrives on the needs of her clients and really listens to every detail. I would give her more stars, if available!!
