We completed a bucket list trip to the 7th continent. There were a few snags on the land portion caused by silverseas but once on board things flowed smoothly Have 2 more trips already booked through pavlus

I was on a Greece and Turkey tour and cruise. After 3 cancellations due to Covid, we finally left for our trip! Perfect weather and calm seas helped make the trip very enjoyable. I have liked working with Melissa, she is friendly and is quick to answer any questions. I found Pavlus online and have used them for several trips.

Melissa led us throughout our Viking journey. She has all our business from now on.
By: Pavlus Verified Traveler on 09/23/2022
As usual, Melissa made all the necessary arrangements for us and fielded all our questions throughout. The trip was flawless. And we have four more cruises setup through Melissa and as with all our previous experience with Melissa and Pavlus, our expectation is that they too will all be flawless!

My satisfaction with Pavlus is 110%. My specific satisfaction is with Melissa Pool. As you may not know, our Viking cruise to the heartland of America was cancelled.It was cancelled by Viking, by email approximately 10 days before departure. We didn’t understand what was going on. We then got a phone call from Melissa. Even though it was not Melissa’s fault, or the fault of Pavlus, she took over and helped us out. She told me to sit tight and she would look into our situation, and she did. She helped us rearrange our travel plans, sort out the money situation and gave us all our options about our plans.she was wonderful.She turned a very stressful situation into a new, workable plan. We are now off to Paris in October.. Thank you Pavlus and special thanks to Melissa Pool

My trip—7/18-29 the Germany/Oberammergau was absolutely wonderful!! Taking 11of us and organizing all the minute details was a huge undertaking for Melissa (& me!!) As we have been reminiscing about our trip, everyone agrees that it was a trip if a lifetime. One that we will be talking about for a long time and will certainly never forget! I commend Melissa for all her patience and hard work for me/us!! And Janja, our tour guide was exemplary!! Thank you for everything! And God bless you! Christina Soueidi

Melissa is great at helping plan my vacation and get all the details worked out! Especially like the Pavlus discounts/rebates that are given when booking trips!
By: Pavlus Verified Traveler on 06/25/2022
Melissa has been very helpful and responsive to our requests and needs. We were pleased with her service and kind help. We will certainly go back to her for next land tours in the future.

Melissa was absolutely fabulous to work with. This trip was years in the making thanks to covid and Melissa was with me every step of the way helping me to rebook when things were canceled and make sure I was all set when the trip finally happened. Melissa was always quick to answer all of my many questions and find answers to them all. Thanks to all of her help, I knew that this trip would go smoothly, and I am happy to report that it was an amazing trip! I am looking forward to booking my next adventure through Pavlus!
By: Pavlus Verified Traveler on 05/17/2022
Pavlus travel and Melissa have been fantastic. We have used her to book 4 cruises and 1 tour in the last year. Three cruises are complete, one scheduled for July and a tour in 2023.

Our vacation finally arrived and everything Pavlus Travel planned for my husband and me happened. We had a wonderful time on a wonderful small yacht sailing from Lisbon, Portugal to Barcelona, Spain. Our cash back from the booking arrived before we left home. This was a nice surprise! My agent, Melissa kept up with us and filled us in on what we could expect from Scenic whose tour we were taking. Pavlus will give you a good value for your trip. All personnel I spoke with took care to be sure the answer to my questions were answered ASAP. My husband and I already have another trip planned in March of 2023 headed to New Zealand ;and Australia. Can't wait!

Melissa Pool is a fantastic travel planner. She is always available and either has the answer or knows where to get the answer to all our questions. We could not be happier with our relationship to Pavlus. We have four more cruises booked through Melissa and know that she will take care of our every need. Thank you for making our vacations as worry free as possible. Andy

Great cruise to French Polynesia with Viking. Excellent safety measures to control any covid concerns. In fact, we were covid free and allowed independent exploration. Our cruise was the first international cruise ship to French Polynesia since covid. Melissa did a great job and really helped us with our cruise planning.

Very satisfied with Mellisa, I feel sorry for all you have to go through dealing with Princess and their cancellations and problems with Covid. Mellisa is above and beyond in communicating and handling all the changes.

Everything perfect as always.

Our agent, Melissa, was extremely helpful considering all the rebooking she did for us, with the cancellations in the last year. We had five bookings booked and rebooked, she had a cheerful attitude throughout the experiences, with Princess in the changes. Melissa went above and beyond in handling this.
By: Pavlus Verified Traveler on 12/19/2021
I love Melissa. She follows through on any request, issue etc...She makes sure that everything is done correctly. Love getting money back from Pavlus.

I appreciated Mellisa's help in planning a Mother - Daughter cruise. We had a lovely time and it was good to spend some quality time with my daughter after 2 years. Holland American did a wonderful job making us feel safe in a Covid19 Delta varient world. We felt confident that everyone on the ship was fully vaccinated. Ann Lyn Martin

I love your discounts.

Obvious that Covid has affected travel services. Ship only half full and so they had to cut a few corners. On board services were still outstanding, but onboard programs were not up to par. Had difficulty keeping our personal group together as we were in separate hotels and buses. However, waitstaff made the day. Captain was a bit introverted and the program director was not as entertaining as past trips. Good trip otherwise. Especially Normandy Beach.
By: Pavlus Verified Traveler on 09/28/2021
Pavlus has consistantly offered me the lowest prices on tours and cruises or they have met and beat competitor's quotes. Melissa is easy to work with, very patient and professional. I recommend Pavlus all the time.
By: Pavlus Verified Traveler on 09/27/2021
Very satisfied. I just gave a referral card to a couple last night. My cruise from August 29, 2021 is continuing until 1 December 1, 2021. Has Lauren R. returned as a travel planner? When she left I was turned over to Melissa. On recent bookings on board Oceania, my invoices have come back with Lauren as my travel planner. Please advise if I should contact Lauren R. or Melissa concerning my bookings. Thank you
By: Pavlus Verified Traveler on 09/26/2021
Trip was handled well. I was kept informed and trip was super.
By: Pavlus Verified Traveler on 09/22/2021
Melissa and others answered all of my questions. She was prompt to call when an passive occurs with our hotel. I will use Pavlus again. Many thanks!

Melissa and the staff were fantastic. After booking I had questions and Jay Whiteaker worked with American Queen to get answers. Kimberly was informative when texting with her when I first discovered your website. The only negative was the occasional confusion between American Queen Steamship Company and American Cruise Lines. I received two emails, one early and one just before leaving with information about my American Cruise Lines Cruise. Of course, I was on American Queen. However all documents were correct so it looks like some rushed correspondence based on “American”. Urge caution there as it could lead to doubts. I definitely will use you in the future. The rebate is a nice feature.
