Taylor Spitz- Cruise Director - August 24, 2018

A huge congratulations to our very own Cruise Director, Taylor Spitz, for being our Employee Spotlight this week. Since starting with us in May she has been a huge part of our guests’ trips. Her best memory thus far has been getting to do the hot chocolate bar on the top deck on board the Constellation in Alaska while cruising through all the glaciers. Fun fact: Taylor absolutely loves photography – check out all of her photos while aboard they are truly breathtaking! Thank you Taylor for all of your hard work that you put forward every single day, it does not go unnoticed.

Elizabeth Lange - Cruise Director - August 10, 2018

Our spotlight shines bright on one of our Cruise Directors, Elizabeth Lange! She has been with us for just over a year and has truly made a positive impact on the operations of our company. For the past 11 weeks she has overseen 180 shore excursions and has provided our guests with an exception experience daily. Fun fact: when she was 17 she went to Cambodia for a month to help teach, this is where she found her love for people and travel. Thank you Elizabeth for being a role model to others on our shipboard team!

I love traveling along the same waters of Lewis and Clark and seeing the drastic change in scenery as we go from a certified desert in Clarkston to a rain forest in Astoria. I could talk about this itinerary all day!
