Travel Services

At Captivating Journeys, we’re proud to offer our clients personalized & custom vacation planning so that you will have an unforgettable, stress-free vacation. As a result of our close partnerships with the luxury cruise lines, hotels, and tour companies, we can offer special amenities on many vacations that are not available to guests who book online or on their own. 

Our Planning Process

Let’s Get Started!

Complete our inquiry form and schedule a 30-minute Discovery Call. This is where we learn more about your travel style and other important details about your trip. This is also where we can answer any questions about our company process and if the service we offer is a good fit. If you’d like to move forward we’ll send you an invoice for our Professional Fee.

This Is Where The Fun Starts!

Once the payment for our fee is complete your vacation will be added to our calendar. We’ll get started on designing your itinerary and will be in touch on when you can expect an itinerary for you to review.

Perfect Your Trip!

You’ll receive an itinerary to review and we’ll make adjustments to your preferences. We’ll book your trip components and put the finishing touches on your vacation.

Get ready for your vacation!

Before you travel you’ll receive documents via email and a printed copy by mail or in person. We even have a handy dandy app for your mobile device so that your itinerary is at your fingertips.
