"Relax....Dream....Plan...I put the U (you) in your Travel Vacation!"     Travel is what opens your mind and leads you to experience an adventure. My name is Margaret Gochenour. An elementary school teacher for thirty five years in Shenandoah County, VA. Mary June Williams,whom I work for in our agency, helped plan my family cruises to Alaska and Hawaii. I became a volunteer at the agency and quickly found I had a passion for travel. So I decided to do what I loved the most.
Over the past four years, I have been earning different certifications to increase my knowledge in the travel industry.  These include:FUNOLOGIST from Carnival

  • Wow EXPERT from Royal Caribbean
  • Wedding Moons Specialist for Sandals
  • Sandals Certified Specialist
  • Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA)

There are many great cruise lines. Two of my favorite are Royal Caribbean and Holland America. Royal Caribbean has excellent cuisine, phenominal entertainment and the ships have the "wow" factor.  Holland is the grandmother of the cruise lines.  Distinquished, regal with a more tranquil environment which makes it a great choice for the older adults not looking for the "wow" factor but instead the "grand" factor.  A Holland cruise is relaxing closer to a Ritz Carlton experience while Royal Caribbean is just plain fast paced fun!

Land Packages and All-inclusive Resorts -

Two of my favorite companies are Funjet Vacations and MLT Vacations.  Bottom line, many of us have to look at the budget and these two companies are excellent for the value they offer.

Disney - speaks for itself.

Not only can you visit the Disney property, but there is Sea World, Universal and others to explore in your adventure.  You can turn Disney into an all inclusive by adding supplemental packages. This is great for families! 

Sandals | Beaches -
Sandals is the BEST for all inclusive resorts.  Offering superb butler service, quality restaurants on each property, and amenities from scuba diving, tennis, golf, to water activities all included in one price. 
With family and grandchildren and neices and nephews getting married, my experience covers a broad range of needs.

I look forward to working with you planning the vacation of your dreams. LIKE me on Facebook and find me on our agency website,

Made it a piece of Cake!
Margaret Gochenour, thank you so much for this lovely surprise left in our room! If you are planning a cruise, we highly recommend Margaret...she lined everything up as this was all new for us. She answered all our questions and stayed in close contact with us up until the day we left. She literally made it a piece of cake for us...LOL!

She made traveling easy and fun!
The travel agent planned the flight and times that suited our schedule and made sure the resort had everything we dreamed . Swim- up bars, restaurants, shopping, pretty beach, nice shows and beautiful people. We traveled to the Grand Palladium Resort in Jamaica.

Very helpful. Very knowledgeable.. Loved her advice.
I highly recommend the services of Margaret. She booked a cruise for my wife and I a few years ago and then booked an All Inclusive resort for us this past year. We loved her advice on what the best way to do things flight and all. Margaret answered questions and accommodated our specific needs. Since we are fairly new to traveling it was very nice to have her to turn to for our traveling adventures.

Planning our family cruise was super easy with Margaret's help
Margaret makes the planning of vacations very easy and comfortable. She planned our family cruise in 2013 and again in 2015. My children are 18, 15 and 9 and they still enjoy vacationing with there parents which I thought would end years ago. Cruises give kids fun freedom in a controlled environment of a ship. Margaret is very knowledgeable and pleasant to talk to with. She has been visited many places and can tell you 'what not to miss.' I highly recommend her service to those looking for a great vacation.
