RIVER CRUISING

Luxury river cruising offers a distinctive way to explore diverse destinations effortlessly. Enjoy breathtaking scenery, charming villages, vineyards, rolling hills, and historical landmarks as you glide along the waterways. The ever-changing views from the ship's deck provide a unique perspective on cultural immersion, historical sites, and scenic beauty. Popular river cruise destinations include the Danube, Rhine, Seine, Nile, Mekong, and Mississippi rivers, among others.

OCEAN CRUISING

Luxury ocean cruising offers an opulent way to explore the world's oceans, providing lavish accommodations, fine dining, personalized service, and a variety of onboard activities. The itineraries cover diverse destinations, including tropical islands, exotic coastlines, cultural landmarks, and cosmopolitan cities, offering unique experiences at each port of call. Passengers can choose guided shore excursions, cultural immersions, or leisurely exploration.

EXPEDITION CRUISING

Luxury expedition cruising seamlessly combines the comfort of a luxury cruise with the excitement of exploring remote and unspoiled destinations. Travelers can visit extraordinary, hard-to-reach places, including polar regions, exotic South Pacific islands, rugged Alaskan coastlines, and remote parts of the Amazon rainforest. Expedition cruises prioritize off-the-beaten-path destinations, providing access to pristine environments and unique wildlife that are often inaccessible to larger cruise ships.

WE BELIEVE YOU DESERVE A VACATION THAT'S EASY, RELAXING & UNFORGETTABLE 

At On Vacation Travel, we know that you want a vacation that is perfectly planned and that will give you the rest & relaxation you deserve.

To have that, you need a professionally planned vacation.

 

The problem is that while you love taking vacations and exploring the world, you don't have the time to spend hours online researching and planning your vacation.

Trying to DIY your own travel plans leaves you feeling overwhelmed with too many options and feeling stressed out. It's not your fault. The internet and online booking sites make it look easy when it's not.

We believe you deserve a vacation that makes you feel excited and relieved knowing that all the details are perfectly planned and organized. 

ABOUT

Before becoming professional travel agents, we used to plan and book our own vacations. So, we understand how frustrating it feels trying to sift through all the information and noise online only to wonder and worry if we made the right choices or if the ship or resort is going to look like the pictures online when we get there. This is exactly why we now work with travelers just like you. 

As your trusted travel agent, we'll utilize our experience, training and trusted network of travel supplier partnerships to create a perfectly planned vacation for you.  We are also members of the American Society of Travel Advisors (ASTA) and of Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) which means we are up to date with latest information in the travel industry. 

You'll feel confident knowing your professionally planned vacation is suited your unique travel needs and style. It's time to go from overwhelmed and frustrated to confident and excited about your next vacation!

MEET OUR TEAM 

The team of travel professionals at On Vacation Travel are dedicated to helping your plan dream vacation.  We have the knowledge and expertise plus a network of industry connections behind the scenes to craft a vacation you'll be excited about.  That means you can relax knowing all the details are taken care of by us.
