A major career goal has been a writeup in the Wall Street Journal. So, I'm really thrilled that writer Marshall Crook featured our barge Elisabeth "Chocolate and Wine" cruise in his Travel Watch column, early December 2007. To read this piece click below.
I am so excited to be featured in the December 10, 2007 issue of Travel Agent Magazine. The name of the article is Barging 101. You can pull it up online by clicking TravelAgentCentral
The author, Susan Young, asked all the right questions - and hopefully I gave the right answers to advise and inspire you!
We covered such important topics as:
-BEST PROSPECTS FOR BARGE CRUISING - "Baby Boomers plus 10 years are perfect for barging. These people (60s to early 70s) are retired but active, they own several houses, they're well-off, they have lots of time, they travel frequently, they've sold their companies and they are fabulous barge clients."
-THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BARGE AND RIVER CRUISING - "You can be three couples or a family and charter your own barge. That's a very different experience from being on a riverboat with 150 people!
-BARGE AMENITIES and FACILITIES - "Barges are more comfortable than most agents realize. We have Ultra-Deluxe barges with extramely large cabins and gorgeous bathrooms."
-DAILY LIFE ABOARD OUR BARGES - "Barges cover just a few 'slow' miles a day or 30 to 60 miles a week. Gourmet food and wine is a huge part of the barge experience. Guests sample 21 cheeses and 21 wines in the average week."
I would be most happy to discuss any or all of these ideas further -
Please call me at (800) 880-0071 and let's talk!
Personal best wishes for a happy Holiday Season and healthy New Year!
