Creators of lifelong memories

your personal cruise consultant

We provide you with a unique, carefree, and unforgettable cruise experience

We are a dynamic, small-scale, low-key, and personal company. Highly specialized in the increasingly popular travel segment: Luxury cruises.

As experienced cruisers, we assist our customers with  very personal advice, enthusiasm, and above all passion to offer you an unsurpassed and personal experience!

In addition to the driven Guido and Gert, there is a team with more than 20 years of experience that we can build on. Together we will look for your dream cruise and we will ensure that everything is arranged down to the last detail. All you have to do is enjoy a wonderful relaxing and worry-free holiday.

When we started the Facebook and Instagram channels Cruise Port Hotels, Cruise Port Tips, and LXRY! Hotels, we had no idea it would turn into this! What started as an idea based upon our own need to find the best pre-cruise hotel, and our love for the most special luxury hotels, became such a success we decided to share our experience and service cruise lovers. To find the best hotels in cruise ports and outside cruise ports.

All hotels we have selected are based upon experiences from your fellow luxury cruise lovers or our personal experiences. The Cruise Port Hotels are marked with the Cruisers’ Choice Award Emblem. A sign of proven quality for luxury cruisers.


our guests about us

On the left side we show some quotes from our clients who have booked a cruise with us.

Turn luxury cruising into lifestyle

We are passionate about travel. We believe that traveling and gathering memories is far more important than owning a lot of goods. Making new friends on travel is what counts in life. 

We also believe that when you travel, you should travel well!

Cruising on a luxury ship is unlike any other form of travel. The experience is luxurious, yet relaxed – elegant, yet casual – sumptuous, yet understated.

We specialize in luxury and premium cruise lines like Seabourn, Regent Seven Seas, Windstar, Azamara, Crystal, Celebrity,  The Ritz Carlton Yachts Collection Cruises, Hapag Lloyd, Silversea, Scenic, Oceania Cruises, Ponant, Aqua Expeditions, AmaWaterways, Uniworld, MSC Yachts, HAL, and Paul Gaugain.

care for the oceans


We love to sail the oceans. Cruises are in our DNA. That also means we do have a responsibility to take good care of the seas. But the seas and marine life are seriously endangered by us.

The plastic soup…

Trash accumulates in five ocean garbage patches, the largest one being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, located between Hawaii and California. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our ecosystems, health, and economies. Solving it requires a combination of closing the source, and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean.

The challenge of cleaning up the gyres is that plastic pollution is spread across millions of square kilometers and travels in all directions. The Ocean Cleanup technology has been designed to do the hard job of concentrating the plastic first before it can be effectively removed from the ocean.

We all have a responsibility. Give something back to the sea.

Alcohol included cruise lines


Do you also enjoy sitting on the deck with a glass of wine or a summer cocktail? Or to drink a nice wine with the super dinner on board your cruise? Then it is so handy when you know that the final invoice is not such a shock and that your drinks are already included in the rate. With most cruise lines, you pay a fairly high price for those alcoholic beverages, often with a hefty tip as well. But luckily for us 'connoisseurs' there are also cruise lines where alcohol is included in the fare. Here's an overview:
