Evolution of a King

Why Dave is branching out beyond rivers​!

One of the best things about a river cruise is the balance of time spent having fun in port and the time spent onboard the ship relaxing, sharing moments, and enjoying each other's company.

The recent trend in combining river cruises with a sea cruise has convinced Dave that its time for him to combine ALL his cruise knowledge and talents, combining 75 sea cruises with 50+ river cruises!

A Story of Celebration

Dave treats his teachers to Tulip Time!

There is no better way to spend true quality time and to say thank you to the important people in your life than by giving them the love an exciting river cruise!

 

In 2019 Dave invited his 4th-grade teacher, Joyce Dascola and her sister Arlene to join him on a THANK YOU cruise for being such wonderful mentors and not only did they have a great time, but its even featured online in this great story!

A STORY OF EXCELLENCE

 

PLAN YOUR NEXT MAJOR CELEBRATION 

WITH DAVE ON A FANTASTIC RIVER CRUISE

Family and friend reunions, anniversary celebrations, special birthdays, and even weddings should all consider a river cruise for their next major event and have Dave plan and organize it!

He is an absolute pro!

A river cruise is a fantastic place for taking revenge on missing out on so many milestone events this past year and a half.  Maximize your budget and use of time to their greatest effect by using all the included services, accommodations, dining, and included amenities to turn a vacation into a momentous occasion where you actually participate in and enjoy every minute, as opposed to the whirlwind of concerns that often surround and overtake these occasions.

 

A river cruise gives you every opportunity to concentrate on creating memories with your loved ones thru themed activities or cocktail parties, special dinners, private group tours, and still leave time for individual experiences.  

My favorite part is that regardless of a day's activities, everyone comes together again for the exceptionally delicious meals and evening activities. The most satisfying part is that it's all included. 

 

It is the best of both worlds with minimal fuss and maximum benefit.

 

I held my own wedding on the AmaKristina and it was the perfect way to spend real quality time with our loved ones and friends. While the attentive ,5-star service level crew members took care of all the details, we enjoyed our guests and the different themed parties I’d planned for each day. It was exactly how we wanted to celebrate our marriage: by spending true quality time and sharing special experiences with those important to us.  Instead of a rushed, few-hours-long party with minimal time to enjoy each guest's company, we were able to plan small events each day that allowed us to share experiences that we now treasure, but also allowed the guests to have their own time.

 

The crew saved us from more headaches than I can count and we turned the different stops along the way into fun-filled and creative soirees that even gave guests who weren't sailing with us an opportunity to help us celebrate during a wine garden event in Rüdesheim.  It was magical and I would love to show you how to do the same.

 

I have the perfect blueprint to help you plan your own exciting adventure-turned-event.

The Anatomy of a River Cruise Wedding

Large Groups, Themed Travel, Seminars and Trainings

The some principle that applies to turning a special occasion into a mega-event applies to any kind of large group.  Whether it be team-trainings or seminars, club getaways, special interest groups, or performance rewards, a river cruise is the ultimate All-in-One special event solution.  

 

There is ample time to conduct presentations or training activities, hold demonstrations, tastings, or 

any number of themed activities from dinners to cocktail parties, as well as chances for each attendee to work on any necessary projects, do their own thing in port, as well as have time for a bit of quiet reflection.

By utilizing all the included features of a river cruise, you maximize every aspect of your event the the effects are much longer lasting.
