About Us


For us, the beach is more than a place, it’s a feeling that comes from deep inside one's soul. 

My husband and I went to the Caribbean on our very first cruise, and we have been hooked ever since. We love that we can discover new lands, cultures, sights and sounds at each destination port. We especially love the beach cruises!


We're a family-owned business who value the strength we find in helping others. We love cruising & the beach, and the carefree serenity and peace that comes from both!

Our love for the beach stems from our childhood. My husband and I were born and raised in South Africa. Four of our 5 children were born in South Africa. Growing up 30 minutes away from the beach, in the humid climate of the subtropics, brought the love of “everything beach" into our souls! 

My love for the beach stems from these moments. I don't know if you feel this waybut I feel my soul is energized, or charged by the sun. (Imagine a cell phone charger getting connected to the power source.... well, I would be the cell phone in that analogy! Ha ha!)
