About Romantic Journeys
Why work With a Honeymoon Specialist?
Your honeymoon is not just another vacation - it's a very special time in your life as a couple when all the craziness of the wedding is behind you and it's finally time for you two to be alone. You want it to be perfect!
Think of a Honeymoon Specialist as being very much like another trusted professional - a Wedding Coordinator. During an indepth consultation I take the time to get to know the both of you - what you like and don't like and help you determine what style of travel you have in mind, then I guide you to the honeymoon experience you have been dreaming of. I know all the right questions to ask and answer - even when you don't - and you can rest assured this special time in your lives is in good hands!
It is my job to make sure your honeymoon is as stress-free as possible.
Why work with me, Barbara Oliver CTA, ECC?
Being invited to be part of your honeymoon planning is a responsibility I take very seriously, so I feel you should know a little about me.
My formal education consists of • Bachelors Degree in Psychology • 2 year Travel & Tourism Certificate • Certified Travel Associate (CTA) from the Travel Institute • Elite Cruise Counselor (ECC) by the Cruise Line International Association. I am a big proponent of ongoing continuing education and therefore have completed many Destination Specialist programs and I invest my time and funds to travel as often as I can to be able to guide you through first hand experience (-> that is me this past Dec when I was invited to Tahiti by the Tourist Board).
Beyond education however, is who I am and the talent I bring to the planning process. I feel what I offer to you is the ability to really listen - to not only hear what you are saying, but also pick up on those things that you don't even realize is important to you. I work very hard to see the pictures in your heads and help you select the destination that will match what you have been dreaming of. I view your honeymoon as a complete experience - a story arc if you will - taking into account the stress of the wedding and your need to recover and reconnect.
You will come home relaxed, refreshed and ready to re-enter real life!
Great! But that sounds expensive
As many of my couples will attest to, not only will I save you time and stress - I will also make sure you get the best value for your budget! The good news is that for most travel arrangements there are no additional fees. I am compensated by the suppliers after you travel - so it doesn't cost any more than muddling though by yourself on the internet with no guidance, trying to determine who you can believe and trust! A research deposit is required to begin the planning process however, but for most trips it is applied to your final payment.
Where can we go?
Anywhere your heart and budget will take you! Romantic Journeys is a full service travel agency with supplier
relationships and experience all over the world.
