About Me

Ineke Palmer

My name is Ineke Palmer.  I am 50+ and have been helping my clients plan their holiday for over 30 years.  I love finding that special holiday for my clients that will build many happy memories for years to come.  I have worked for over 10 years as a Travel Advisor with Elgin Travel & Cruises TravelPlus located in St Thomas, ON, Canada.  My Passion is finding the Cruise Holiday that will give you those special memories to share with family and friends.

I have travelled extensively over the past 30 years and love exploring the different destinations.  I remember the first time I travelled with my husband and boys to the Caribbean.  We experienced the beaches of Puerto Vallarta, Puerto Plata and St Lucia.   My husband and I have also enjoyed Orlando, The Mayan Riviera, and Jamaica as well.  A special holiday was when we shared a Destination Wedding experience with my cousin in Punta Cana.  What a fabulous way to get to know and enjoy your family and friends!

We took the boys on their first cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines.  I think that was the first time I realized my passion for cruising and how important it is to choose the right ship for the best experience.  Travelling with children is much different than travelling as a couple.  There are so many more facets to think about because you are just not trying to find the best fit for yourself but also for your family.  We went on to experience exciting ports of call on Royal Caribbean , Carnival, Holland America and Celebrity Cruises.

My passion away from the office is Soccer.  I have coached youth soccer over the last 15 years and I love seeing the kids learn more than just the sport.  They come away learning how to work together as a team.  As well they have a respect for each other and their peers.  They learn that it isn’t all about winning but enjoying the game and to have fun doing so.

I love glamping.  This is camping in style.  With a washroom close by just in case….  Sleeping off the ground and yes – on those hot summer nights and the hot flashes set in – I can just turn on the A/C.

I have been a part of Rosy Rhubarb in Shedden for many years.  Rosy Rhubarb runs for 3 days the 2nd weekend in June every year.  It all started as a fundraiser to build the community a Complex that would hold our functions.  It has grown into a yearly fundraiser with the funds staying in our community.  We are now known as the Rhubarb Capital of Ontario!

I love giving back to the community I live in.  It is very rewarding to see the hard work you have contributed realized in front of you!

Are you looking to find that special cruise holiday to celebrate a milestone occasion?  Or just getting away and spending quality time with family and friends?  I would love to help you find the cruise that would give you the dream vacation without all the stress that comes with the search.  Just send me an email or give me a call and I would be happy to help.
