*Jim is mostly retired! You will find him travelling the world, cruising, enjoying his cottage and spending time with his grandchildren and family!
First cruise was booked by a general travel agent in bunk beds on Holland America old Rotterdam in 1986. I knew there was a better way! We started our cruise business in 1994 as a franchise and evolved into our own brand and joined the Ensemble Travel Group consortium in 2002. As co-owner of Cruise Vacations along with my wife Karen, we have grown to become Winnipeg’s premier cruise only travel agency. I love to deliver top notch cruise experiences to folks that are delighted with their experience. One of my favorite times was in Costa Rica with a group of ranchers when we visited a cattle ranch and one of our guests showed the ranch owner how we “auction” cattle back in Canada. It was a gift to everyone that witnessed the “auction”. I have travelled to over 80 countries on upwards of 100 cruises. I have experienced virtually every cruise line ocean and many river lines. I know people tell me they would prefer to spend a month or two to fully immure themselves in a country, Truth be known they, never will. They don’t have what we all cherish. Time. I prefer to experience as much of the world as I can while I can. I really want to travel to India and the Amazon in my future experiences.
…we had booked direct with the cruise lines supplier and then had the booking transferred to you. We are so glad we got “Cruise Vacations” to look after our booking, we love the attention to detail and how we are looked after by your agency…Read more
