Cabo San Lucas


We went to Cabo over Thanksgiving break. We stayed at the Riu Palace Resort. I want to start by saying they took every precaution during this pandemic. The resort was at 50% capacity. Mask are required while inside. Before you walk in a restaurant they put sanitizer in your hand and take your temp. They serve you at all buffets. There are sanitizer dispensers throughout. Everyone, the employees and the guest alike, were very diligent in following the rules. It was really eye opening to see that we ARE all in this together. We met people from all over the world and felt very safe!

The lobby, Entrance of hotel and a staff member masked and cleaning.

The resort is beautiful! It is all- inclusive: includes unlimited food, alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, specialty coffee, bottled water. It has 6 restaurants, a coffee shop, pool snack bars, carts being pushed around with ice-cream and fresh fruit. All rooms have a balcony or terrace. You can choose between, swim out room, ocean front or partial ocean view. It has a spa, gym, tennis courts, kids land, beauty salon, 2 outdoor swimming pools, jacuzzi. Two adults only swim up bar pools, piano lounge with live music, plaza bar and theater for entertainment. It has two sister resorts next door, the adults only Riu Baja and Riu Santa Fe. If you stay at the palace you get to enjoy the other two resorts as well.

The infinity pool & bar pool

Due to Covid, some things were not open, like the water slides, and room service. The bars were closed, except the pool bar but there was always people coming around taking your order and brought whatever you want. There was entertainment in the theater and games around and in the pool. (I did water aerobics😳) The staff was constantly cleaning everything, walls, hand rails, chairs, etc. all around the resort. They closed things earlier than normal.

We arrived after dark. When we got to our room of course I ran straight out to the balcony. As I’m standing there looking out over the pool to the ocean, I saw a shooting star. I was so excited, I had not seen one in years and never one over the ocean. It gave me total peace about being there amongst other things that’s happened in our life this year and let me know, “everything is gonna be alright.” A God wink!!

The view from our room. We had a partial ocean front but beautiful!

I highly recommend this resort. It’s a beautiful location, a very safe beautiful resort and the staff was great.

Now about Cabo:

The water is gorgeous!

Wow!! 💙

There are two connected beaches, Lover’s beach and Divorce beach. Lover’s beach is on the bay side and is much more calm, while Divorce Beach has turbulent waves and rip currents. It’s like a relationship. One side is calmer, while the other turbulent. Seriously, not joking.

Lovers Beach on top and Divorce Beach on bottom.

You can’t go to Cabo without going to Land’s End where you will see rock formations such as the famous El Arco (The Arch). The rock formations are made of granite and are shaped naturally by the powerful waves of the sea. At certain times of the year the tides are just right and you can walk under the arch.

The famous Arch
Not my picture but found this to explain a little more.

The Marina is a big place and has everything from restaurants, shopping, hotels, bars and the main hub for all boats leaving and returning to Cabo. Also a big nice mall.

The Marina

They have many excursions to choose. We took a sail boat, sunset cruise. It took us by the arch. Beautiful and Most gorgeous sunset.

The sailboat sunset cruise 💙😎

Many of the beaches in Cabo aren’t swimmable because of massive waves and undertow. Medano Beach is the main swimming beach in Cabo.

Little rough here but gorgeous
Sunsets are my favorite

We had a great, relaxing time. It’s been a crazy year but we were very safe, took all precautions and come home healthy. I know it’s a highly debatable subject but as long as we can, we will continue to travel.

Have mask will travel

We can’t wait to go back to Cabo San Lucas. If you would like any information or would like to book your own vacation, please let me know. I’d love to help you!!

All pics but the one I stated are my own. I have many more I could share but quit… didn’t want to bore you.


I’m really tired of hearing “New Normal” but things change,  and sometimes for the good. So what shall we call “new normal?”

This is my experience of eating at restaurants and staying in a hotel.


We ate at a restaurant for the first time since they opened back up with restrictions. Restaurants are limited to 75% occupancy. (Texas) Social distancing and higher levels of cleaning and awareness are obvious everywhere. The waiters are wearing masks. Tables have been selectively closed off to keep social distancing. There are no condiments on the tables. You must ask for them and they are the little packs of salt, pepper, etc.
Menus are single-use paper menus. They didn’t clear anything off the table until we were completely done. I watched them clean other tables and was pleased with what I saw. I really like this and hope it stays that way, except for the waiters wearing masks.

  I felt very safe and enjoyed eating out.

Sorry, I forgot to take photos in the restaurant and food. I’m not good at that.


We stayed at the Hampton Inn which is owned by Hilton. There are no housekeeping services unless you are long term and then they will clean the room every five days. They do come in and exchange your towels. There was no coffee making equipment, pens, paper, hotel books, pamphlets in the room. It was pretty much cleaned out, so to speak. Breakfast was served take-out style, although they were still cooking a hot breakfast. Honestly, I do like these new things. I also noticed more housekeepers on our floor and 2 people cleaning each room.

     Just to give you an idea of what to expect.

I took my own Lysol spray & wipes and the only thing I used it on was the TV remote.

This was on each door that was clean and ready. It was sealed and it breaks when the door is open.

I suspect in the “New Normal” we will continue to see people wearing masks in stores or in public. Over time there will be fewer, but some people with higher risk factors will continue to wear them. Hopefully, people who are having symptoms of being sick will stay home or wear a mask if they must go out.

Please be nice to each other…if someone is more comfortable using a mask to go out most certainly they are not just being crazy fearful. On the other hand for those not wearing masks please don’t assume they are selfish and trying to kill you.

The New Normal is pretty Normal. We will again risk our lives going out in traffic, we will have some modest changes that may be inconvenient, but best of all we will have a great appreciation for all we are blessed within our lives. Travels will resume, stores will open. We will likely be more aware of our surroundings for some time, but each of us will do our own “risk management” and do what we are comfortable doing in our personal life situation. And I hope we will be grateful for life and have the wisdom to live it well.

Hi, Y’all!!

Enjoying time on the balcony at the Hotel.

I felt comfortable at the restaurants and the hotel, however, everyone must choose for themselves. If you haven’t been out and experienced these things I hope that this has helped you.

Enjoying life,


Cruising My Way Into 50

On December 1, 2019, I turned 50 years old. I was blessed to do one of my favorite things…a cruise to Mexico. There were 14 of us that went and it was so much fun.

I am a hobbyist photographer and LOVE photos. I have to be honest, I didn’t get as many photos as I normally do. I didn’t even get one of us all together. But, I made lots of memories and enjoyed being in the moment.

We left out the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It was the lighting of the Christmas tree on the ship, the Carnival Dream, and the start of the Christmas season. We sang Christmas carols, Santa made a visit and we even got a little “snow” on our cruise. Thankfully it was fake because I am not a cold/snow person.

Sorry, not the best video.

It was so beautiful!

We even decorated our cruise door Christmasy (is that a word) and for my birthday, with lights, a mermaid Christmas stocking and of course the big 5 0 on it.

We had one of the best cruise directors, Gary. He made everything fun! On the first day I met him at the sail away party and every time I saw him after that, he called me the “birthday girl.” He even sent a special coupon to my room for a free photo album from the pixels department.

This was our very first time to have a cove balcony. That is a balcony room on deck 2 close to the water. Loved it! Here is a little glimpse of a video I made on December 1, 2019.


It was a blessing that my oldest son and his family were able to cruise with us. Our youngest son and his family will cruise with us next time.

There was a duck hunt one afternoon. Some of the cruise staff hid ducks around the ship. The team that returned with all of the correct places they were hidden, within 30 minutes, won.

Guess what?

We won!! 🎊

They all got a metal. They were so excited, so were the adults. It was all for fun but we are kind of competitive so it was awesome. 👏🏼

The weather was spectacular. The Lord answered my prayers with that. It was a wonderful cruise and lots of memories were made.

Hanging around the Lido deck with my Love on the actual day of my birthday. 😎 Might I add, sunny and 80 degrees. #perfect

I do use sunscreen but those freckles pop out in the sun. My Granny always told me they were beautiful sun-kisses. I sure miss her.

I hope you enjoy my iPhone pictures and a little glimpse of “Cruising into 50.” I’m proud of my age. I am not one to make a big deal out of my birthday (you can’t tell by this blog lol) but this time I did, it was a big one.


Funny story: My brother was cruising with us and he asked me on my birthday if I felt any different at 50… I told him yes, I actually felt better, the day/night before I danced so much that my feet and legs were hurting when I went to bed. So, I felt better on my 50th birthday.

This was a fun cruise and fun to write about. Nothing eloquent about it; just ME!!

This photo was at port in Cozumel.

Merry Christmas 🎄

❤️ Davilyn

If you have any questions about cruising or would like to book a cruise, I’d love to help you.

New Orleans Style

This time we had a road trip, not a cruise or beach trip.

Our nephew got married in NOLA. This gave us an opportunity to go to New Orleans as a family and make a little vacation out of it. We don’t get to travel much as a whole family because of schedules. It was fun being in the same hotel, kids running back and forth to rooms.

This is our family! There’s a lot of us. We have two sons, two daughters-in-love, three grandsons and three granddaughters. We are very blessed!

Eberlan party of 12. We have our own hashtag #eberlanX12

We saw the family that we haven’t seen in a long time, it was great fun, loud time. Eberlan’s are loud. Lol

We went to the French Quarters on the first day. It was my first time to have beignets at Cafe Du Monde. Oh my goodness, delicious. We all LOVED them. We even got them the next day for breakfast, also.

We rode a carriage ride through the downtown streets of New Orleans site seeing and learned a lot of the history of the city.

St. Louis Cathedral

Bourbon street was quiet in the morning but not so much late in the evening.

Beautiful architecture

A lot of history in this city.

The French Market is a great place to shop. Everything from t/shirts, souvenirs, fruit, food, drinks and more.

The wedding was classy and perfect. Beautiful church, bride and groom.

The National Shrine of Our Lady of Prompt Succor

Historic Church

The flower girls. My beautiful grand-daughters.

Yes, we were in Saints country but the groom had a Dallas Cowboys cake with a helmet signed by Jason Witten.

Dancing with the stars; my grand-babies.

We finished the night with a fun reception. We danced the night away, especially the kids.

This was our first trip to NOLA and we had an awesome time. We will be going back.

I love sharing our life with you. By the way, Snapshots not professional photos.

Forever Wanderlust

Hi friends! It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog. I have been busy with my family and suffering from chronic migraines. The neurologist tried several medications and nothing worked for me. I finally received Botox injections for migraines (25 injections) and I’m feeling better. Anyway, this blog isn’t about that…

As you may know, I am a travel advisor, agent, consultant, whatever you want to call it. I’ve been doing this for a little over a year. I absolutely love it, it’s my passion to help others plan a vacation.  It’s not always an easy job and takes lots of time, but it’s all worth it.

I always like to get a picture with the Carnival tail.

When I first started and looking at all of the “stuff” it was kind of overwhelming. Then I was in a teaching webinar and the instructor said, “don’t try to do it all, find your niche.” She said if you were having a heart attack you would want a heart surgeon, a brain tumor, a neurosurgeon, etc. It made perfect sense to me. The specialist is more experienced in what they do and they also make more money.  I knew immediately what my niche would be, it would be what I love, cruising and beaches. I already knew a lot about cruises and beaches because that’s what we do so often. I’ve turned down booking trips to Italy, Vegas, New York, just to name a few, because that’s not my niche. I’m not experienced at that.

I have always loved the beach and after my first cruise, I was addicted. I love cruising because you get to visit so many places on one trip. I also love the ship and being on the seas.

I am a Forever Wanderlust!

While I didn’t get into this to get rich, I wanted to make enough money for my husband and I to cruise twice a year and to take other small trips throughout. We love to get away at any time we can. I have a lot of family members that also cruise. It didn’t take long to start booking, but I did have to wait a while for a paycheck.

I am so blessed and thankful for each and every one of my clients, friends, and family that I have had the privilege of helping with their vacation.

This is when I was in Mahogany Bay, Roatan. Loved the monkey, not to mention the beautiful water and beach.

  I have the BEST clients.

The best advertisement is referrals and word of mouth! I’m blessed to have great clients that do this for me.

 Sharing is caring!

I have other blogs on the best time to cruise, packing ideas, tips and why use a travel agent. I will link them at the bottom, great information in them.

I love my job, it’s hard for me to even call it that because I enjoy it so much.

It’s my desire to help my clients get the best deals, be prepared and have an awesome vacation.

If you are interested in a cruise or all-inclusive beach resort, it would be my honor to help you.

A big group of us that cruised together in April. This is in Cozumel.

No, I don’t do it all but I am a specialist/expert on cruises and resorts.

I hope you have enjoyed my pictures. I love to share them.

Travel is not about leaving our homes, it’s about leaving our habits.

Galveston Island: Things to Do

Hello from Galveston Island!

We have been going to Galveston, Texas for over 30 years. When our children were growing up we went every summer for a week. It’s grown a lot since we first started going. My husband and I still go every couple of months, even if for a day or two.

Our first stop is usually Salsa’s Mexican Food. We love Mexican food, and to us, it’s the best. We order combo fajitas and share because it’s so much food for one person.

There are so many things to do in Galveston.

Pleasure Pier

Side view 

Schlitterbahn Water Park

Moody Gardens is a popular attraction with a large hotel, rain forest pyramid, Aquarium, 4D Special Fx theater, paddlewheel boat cruise. Too many things to list.

Moody Gardens

My FAVORITE seashell gift shop is Murdoch’s over the water. It has a nice Breezeway to sit in, have a drink, if you wish, and look out at the gulf. I’ve seen people during the summer hang a hammock underneath. I have several pictures and can’t share them all but if interested find out more here about Murdochs.

A popular place that tourist like to eat, and we’ve eaten there many times, is Fish Tales. It’s directly across from Pleasure Pier on the Seawall.

But, we have found where the locals eat seafood, and now it’s where we eat. Shrimp N Stuff. There are two locations, one downtown, more for tourist, and the original one, where we like to eat. It’s very casual. You go to counter to order and sit where you want.

They have the best crab cakes and fried oysters.

The Strand Historic District is located downtown, and it definitely needs to be on your to-do list. We love to walk the streets and visit the different boutiques and gift shops. It has a lot of mom and pop cafes, lively entertainment and of course, people watching.

You must go to LaKings for dessert. It’s an old fashion ice-cream and candy shop. You can have an old fashion milkshake, coke float, homemade candies or a latte.

Also, downtown is the cruise port. You can watch the cruise ships sail away or my favorite thing, wave at people as I sail away. Cruise lines with ships that sail from this port include Disney Cruise Line, Carnival Cruise Line, and Royal Caribbean. This port is rated as one of the top cruise ports (#4) in the country thanks to all of the activities Galveston Island has to offer. Usually, cruisers stay a couple of days in Galveston.

I took this photo from Pier 23 at the port. Unfortunately, I was not sailing away that day.

The Galveston Seawall is built along the beaches. The sidewalk adjacent to Seawall Boulevard on the south is claimed to be the longest continuous sidewalk in the world at 10.3 miles. All free beaches along the Seawall are kept by the city and have lifeguards. There are many hotels and restaurants up and down the sea wall.

Beach along the Sea Wall

A sunrise view from my hotel balcony

Stewart Beach is an excellent beach for a day trip. The beach is free, but you must pay to park. It has a big gift shop, showers, store, restaurant, and many activities.

Galveston is a great beach vacation. Many things cost money, but there are also many things, like the beach, the strand, cruise pier, Murdoch’s, riding the ferry, just to name a few, that cost nothing at all. It’s a great peaceful, relaxing place. We only live 3 hours away, so we’ve made the trip in a day or have stayed a week.

Galveston host many activities all throughout the year, everything from chili cook-offs, Mardi Gras, motorcycle rallies to a Festival of Lights during Christmas time and more.

Many people visit Galveston each year, either to vacation or cruise.

On the way home, we always stop at Buc-ees. It’s about 15 miles from Galveston, in Texas City. Actually, we stop going to Galveston and going home.

It’s a huge convenience store for snacks, BBQ, drinks, Texas-Themed T-shirts, beach decor and many gifts, not to mention the largest, cleanest restrooms around.

These are just a few things about my home away from home. Contact me if you have any questions or would like any information about Galveston Island.

I couldn’t leave you without at least one of our many pictures together at Galveston beach.

Carnival Vista: My Tour

As a travel agent, I got to tour the Carnival Vista. The Vista is one of the biggest ships that Carnival has. The ship set sail May 2016. Its new home port is in Galveston, Texas, only 3 hours away from my home.

This was my first ship tour as a travel agent. I was very blessed to be able to go on this ship inspection because they only allow so many per inspection/tour. I was happy to be approved but also had anxiety. Almost didn’t go. I am an introvert, and it’s tough for me to do things alone, where I know no one! Therefore, this was a big step out of my comfort zone.  I’m so glad that I stepped out. I met so many fellow agents and even stepped out and introduced myself to people. BIG deal for me!

Some of my new friends and fellow travel agents.

I have been on ten Carnival cruises and knew the layout of their ships pretty well. When I walked onto this ship, I was wowed! The lobby/atrium area was so different than the other ships. It was beautiful with the fiber optic aquarium fixture. There is also one in the casino bar area. Missing in the atrium is the glass elevators, that the other ships have.


The Vista is the first ship that has the Havana rooms. Kids must be at least 12 to stay in these cabins. You can choose between a Havana cabana with a patio which has a hammock and lounge chairs. A Havana suite or an interior Havana stateroom. These rooms have their own private pool, hot tub, and outside bar until 7 pm. The Havana restaurant, lounge, bandstand and the bar on the inside is available to all passengers.

Havana Cabana Patio

The Havana Lounge & Bar

The ship is big, and I was a little overwhelmed trying to see everything. I know that I missed some areas of it.

I love the big screen. As you can see the next stop was Montego Bay, Jamaica. This is my favorite route. It goes to Montego Bay, Cozumel, and Grand Cayman. All Carnival ships have this big screen on the lido deck. At night, they show first-run movies, under the stars. Usually, the first show is a kid show and the second adult.

The main cabins, Lido deck, pool area, buffet, is about the same as the other ships that I have cruised.  The lido deck is where I live during the day while I’m cruising.

There is something for all ages, from camp carnival for young kids, circle C for young teens, club 02 for older teens, Dr. Seuss, waterworks, sports deck, sky ride.

A sports bar to watch games on so you won’t miss any while you’re out at sea.

 Guys Pig & Anchor BBQ and even though that wasn’t on our schedule, a couple of ladies and I ventured that way, and yes, we did have to taste it. Yummy!! We also got an ice-cream cone on the Lido deck.

The Seafood Shack located on lido deck aft. 

Carnival loves travel agents. They fed us in one of the main dining rooms and gave us a full course meal. The waiters put on a dance show. It was a great experience. They also had drawings for different carnival items, and I won a carnival mouse pad, small I know but I was excited because I never win anything.💙

The ship is big and beautiful, and I love the decor.

The staff was very friendly.

It seemed weird being on a cruise ship without my husband, if for only 4 hours. I would say it was hard to get off, but it wasn’t because he wasn’t with me. He went with me on the trip, dropped me off, and he went to the movies. He’s good like that.

I’ve always loved to travel and for the past 11 years cruise. I love helping others plan/book their vacations.

It’s never too late to start living your dreams. I’m proof of that. I just started my blog in January and my travel agency in May, at 48 years old.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Jeremiah 29:11

The Lord has blessed me with this blog and becoming a Travel Agent. I’m also a stay at home Gia (grandma). I love being able to help my kids out and spoil my grandbabies while doing this.

Travel, your money will return, your time won’t. Time is short.

I would love to help you plan your vacation. I know a lot of people ask why to use a TA instead of booking themselves online. I have a previous blog about that, you can read here to answer those questions.

Why Use A Travel Agent

I am often asked, “Why to use a travel agent when I can book online myself?” There are a lot of things we can do ourselves, but we get someone else to do them. Right? I could cut and color my own hair, yet I pay someone to do it. Why? Because I want a professional to do it right. Now think of things you could do yourself, but you get someone else to do. Silly to think about, I know.

Sometimes, travel agents get bad reps. I understand there are probably some that are not as attentive or as good as others, that’s in any business. In fact, at first I wouldn’t call myself a TA, I would say vacation planner or vacation specialist. I thought if I changed the title it would be better. I realized the title doesn’t matter, its whose behind that title that matters. I treat each of my clients as I want to be treated.

Many people think Travel Agents cost more, but they do not. It doesn’t cost you any more to use a travel agent than to book through Expedia, any online site or directly through the company.

Experienced and Trained

Travel agents regularly attend travel industry seminars, conferences, webinars, inspections and most importantly I travel myself, which I love.

Customer Service

No travel website is going to offer you the personal touch that comes from working with a travel agent who has your best interest at heart.

We work for YOU, not a company. You always have direct contact with your Travel Agent instead of being on the phone pressing buttons, on hold and waiting to speak to a random person. We save you time because you’re not searching the internet for hours on the best prices and what to expect while on vacation. We also like to give complimentary gifts and/or extra amenities.


Travel agents have phone lines and connections that you won’t find online or have access too. We receive information from companies that you may not necessarily receive online or by phone.  When I get this information, I pass it along to you or adjust your vacation for the better.

Personal Service

My main niche is cruises and beaches. I have first-hand knowledge and expertise in this area. I can answer individual questions and give you honest and non-biased answers from my own experiences and help you choose what’s best for you. I customize your vacation for you. I help with getting the room you want, rooms near your family, special needs or meal plans, family dinner reservations, help with tours, excursions, parking. I have packing list and blogs for traveling. I let you know what documents you need so you won’t be left behind.

I want my clients to travel prepared and stress-free. I stay in personal contact from the time we first talk, book, travel, return home and beyond.

Using a travel agent comes down really to four things; personalization, your best interest, expertise and saves you time. I’m the one on hold or searching for the best deal for you, so you don’t have too. I’m looking out for your best interest. If I don’t have the answer, I’ll find it!!

Also, when you book online or directly through a company, you’re giving the big companies more money, when you book with a travel agent, you’re supporting a small business.

It’s not always an easy job, but I love it and passionate about what I do. I work 7 days a week and almost always available.

I give quotes, help get the best prices & help you with ALL of your vacation needs for a great vacation! I do all of the work so you can have all of the fun💙

The best things in life are the people we love, the places we’ve been and the memories we’ve made along the way.

What story will your vacation tell? I would love to help you plan it.

Fall Caribbean Cruise

This was our first time to take a fall cruise. We did a four-day cruise to Cozumel, Mexico. We have now cruised every season. October is a great time to cruise. It was actually warmer than our Spring cruises have been. The only negative thing is its hurricane season. There was one in the Gulf of Mexico and actually hit land the day before we sailed.

Praying for the people affected by Hurricane Michael.

The seas were very calm and beautiful.

We packed as much as we could into this 4-day cruise or maybe I should say, we ate as much as we could within this time. The food is so good. We had Guys burgers, Blue Iguana tacos, Lido buffet food, gourmet dining room food, room service, lots of ice-cream and much more. They definitely feed you well on a cruise. I try not to think of calories while there. On the last sea day was a chocolate extravaganza. Oh my goodness! Delicious! They had anything and everything chocolate.


I love to dip my fruit in chocolate. Well, really cover it in chocolate. It’s still healthy, isn’t it?


There is so much to choose from. I probably gained 5 pounds in those 4 days.

We had a costume night which consisted of a costume parade, photos, costume contest, and a deck party.

Our cruising buddies are our good friends, for over 30 years, which happen to be my brother and sister-in-law.

We had never dressed up in costumes before, and it was fun.

We went on the Carnival Valor, a medium-size ship. I don’t know if it was the size of the ship or the length of the cruise, but it was a fun, intimate community. The staff was friendly and attentive as well.

Cozumel is one of our favorite ports. We’ve been there many times, it’s like a home away from home. The port itself is very lovely, and the beaches are beautiful. The people there are so friendly.

Cozumel, Mexico

We always go to Mr. Sanchos. It’s an all-inclusive beach resort. There is so much to do there, anything from parasailing, snorkeling, jet skis, horseback riding, massages, etc. or you can just relax on the beach all day. Oh, and all you want food and drinks.

Mr. Sanchos Beach Resort

I almost forgot to tell you that we are University of Texas Longhorn fans. We wore our longhorn shirts on the day we boarded and my brother, well, he had to be different and wear a Texas Aggie shirt, the Longhorns rival, even though he’s not really an Aggies fan. Let’s just say, we got asked about our shirts A LOT and they got lots of attention.

      I forgive him! I have too! LOL

I love this view!

It was a great cruise…one of the funnest we’ve had. It’s always good to get away. We love cruising because you can really disconnect from everything. Sometimes we spend so much time working and just life in general, that we forget to enjoy it. I encourage to slow down, have fun and enjoy your life.

The sunsets are beautiful.

If you would like more information about cruising, I would love to help you. I also have a vacation/cruise Facebook group Lost At Sea Travels that you can join.  I am an expert cruiser! 😉

Enjoying The Simple and Cruising Life!

💜 Davilyn



I love helping people. It has always made me happy. I love taking vacations and even small trips.

We have always taken family vacations. Mainly to the beach, but also to other places, as well.  After our boys were grown we started cruising. Facebook become popular and I started sharing our photos and stories of our vacation on Facebook.

I began getting messages from people asking me about cruising, ships, excursions, packing etc. I told them everything that I know and recommended things to them and I enjoyed doing it. I’d refer them to our carnival cruise vacation planner (PVP) to book. I even started blogging about cruising and those blogs got so many more views and comments than any of my other blogs. I even had a blog on cruise packing that went viral on Pinterest.

You can book online but there are so much more advantages and offers by booking through a travel agent (ME) even more than a PVP through carnival. I couldn’t even tell you how many people that I have referred people to our (former) PVP.  He’s great! Then one day I thought, why work for someone else’s dream.

Why live someone else’s dream when I could live my own dream.

I looked into classes to become a travel agent. I talked to my husband and talked to a friend that is a TA, and I felt such peace, signed up and took the course to become a TA. I know it’s not a “get rich” job but I also know it’s something that I’m experienced in and passionate about. I can continue to help people and now even book for them. There are even more advantages to being a travel agent than there is being a personal vacation planner with Carnival because I can give you my honest answers to things (since I don’t work for carnival) I can help get rooms with or by one another, book your dinner together, give you quotes, etc. You get more of a personable experience with me. I can help you from where to park your car to excursions. I can give you all of the in’s and out’s of cruising. I know about boarding, disembarking, what’s on the ship, best room locations, elegant nights, best places to eat and even price drops.  You don’t just get your cruise booked, you’re not just a number, you can contact me any time with any questions, we will become friends.  Carnival even likes people to book through TA’s. Oh, by the way, it cost you nothing more to book through me than booking online or straight through carnival. It’s all the same price so why not take advantage of everything that I can offer you.💙

If you have a cruise booked right now and it’s not paid in full, you can even transfer it to me. 😊

As Carnival says #travelagentsrock

I know when the sales are and it’s best to book your vacation in advance, it’s cheaper and you can pay it out any way you wish, as long as it’s paid in full 75-90 days before the cruise.

I can also book other cruise lines, all-inclusive beach resorts, river cruise, land vacations, Disney, and just about anywhere you’d like to go. I’m excited for myself to go discover more places.

I’m really excited about being a Travel Agent or as I like to say a vacation specialist. I’ve only been doing it for about six weeks and the agency that I contract out of said that I’m doing great. I take webinars weekly from different company’s. I’m still learning. I want to be the best that I can be.

I look forward to helping YOU book your next vacation.
