The AmaViola


We’ve sailed on escorted cruises with Chris Fisher escorted by Dick Knoll to the Caribbean and with Steve and Sally Knoll to Alaska. Emma has assisted us with numerous other cruises … We highly recommend going with them or one of the other Cruise Holidays staff members.


Thank you for all the help planning our cruise. Looking forward to having your business plan many more vacations for us.
