Holly has been in the industry for 30+ years.  Her two loves, France and cruising, are reflected in her travel history.  She has traveled extensively in France, with over 30 trips.  Her more than 50 cruises on 15 lines, has taken her to 50 countries, on 6 continents, 5 rivers, 2 oceans, 3 seas and 2 canals.

She has recently returned from Southeast Asia, cruising on the Diamond Princess to Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, and Malaysia.  In August, she enjoyed three weeks in France, including a full week on the beautiful island of Corsica and many days in Brussels.  This experience enriched her knowledge of a region of France often forgotten by US travelers.

She has an abiding interest in music and wine ... the wonderful combination that suggests you let Holly plan your next cruise to cultural capitals of Europe, or travel through the wine country in France!

Expert Bio

More than 20 years ago Holly made her first trip to Paris.  France quickly became her passion, her favorite place on earth!  She is a Certified Rendez Vous en France Agent and since that first excursion, she has made nearly 30 trips to France, every trip including time in Paris. While touring in the Loire Valley, Alsace/Champagne, Burgundy, Bordeaux and the South of France, she has learned the culture, language and where to go and what to do.  

Sharing this information with people planning their French vacation is more than a job, it's a great pleasure; and one that Holly would like to share with you. Whether you are going for pleasure or business, for the first time or 100th time; whether you want to climb the Eiffel Tower, explore chateaux and vineyards or barge the rivers and canals, please, give Holly a call. Together you can plan a perfect trip, fulfilling (and hopefully exceeding) your expectations.

Other cruise adventures include 2012  Eastern Caribbean, 2013  Hawaii & Panama Canal, 2014  Caribbean/Gulf & Mediterranean, 2015  South America and 2016  Panama Canal &  Cuba.


Paris wide

On April 21 of this year I arrived in Paris, and even though I have been there many times, I still experienced the thrill of being in France again. 

On this particular trip, I had the pleasure of being with friends who had never visited this beautiful city.  I was able to see Paris through new eyes, and fell in love with the city all over again.  We visited all of the well known sights, as well as some hidden gems that most tourists miss. 

From Paris a short train ride took us to the Loire Valley to explore the beautiful chateaux in the region.  Chateaux that have been around for centuries are beautifully restored and open for touring.  We based ourselves in one of the many private chateaux that welcome guests, a perfect way to unwind at the end of a day of touring.  One could spend weeks trying to see them all, but sadly, we had to move on. 

We drove our rental car from our chateau to Lyon, France’s third largest city, where we boarded the Emerald Liberté for a 7 day cruise on the Rhone River.  We were joined by the rest of our group of 20 for a great week of touring the vineyards and small towns between Lyon and Arles. 

The trip concluded in Nice, where in addition to exploring the city, we spent a glorious night in Monte Carlo, and a day in Cannes and the mountain top town of St. Paul de Vence. 

There is so much more I could say about this trip and the wonders of France, but I would rather tell you in person.  When your travel plans include France, I would love to help you plan the most memorable vacation.  Contact me at holly@centraltravel.com and we’ll get started right away!
