Diane Catenaci

Home Based Consultant / Vero Beach

Areas of Expertise: Alaska | Bahamas | British Isles | Cruises | Europe | Italy | Luxury Cruises | Thailand |

I have enjoyed being involved in the travel business since 1994. My love of travel began with the exciting trips my parents took to very exotic corners of the world. I would experience their stories of adventure and always dreamed of someday being a part of the travel industry. For me, travel is learning about many cultures and broadening our knowledge of how the world works.

I have since lived my dream and now have stories of my own to share. I have enjoyed extensive travel to Asia touring exotic destinations such as Singapore, Japan, Bali, Hong Kong Thailand, and Malaysia. I have stayed in rented villas,apartments and farm houses in various parts of Europe as well as luxury European hotels. And I always feel right at home in Paris!

One of my most rewarding moments is when a client returns from a luxury cruise that I arranged for them. They always have such memorable experiences to share with their friends and family and I feel honored to have been a part of making those experiences become a reality. I highly encourage cruising for its ease and comfort.

In my free time I enjoy reading about travel or planning my next trip. I also find time to swim, read and socialize.

Travel broadens our horizens and adds excitement to our lives. It would be my extreme pleasure to assist you with your next voyage or tour - whether near or far.
