Senior Travel & Cruise Specialist

My name is Stefania and I am in love with the World. For quite some time, I had lusted over pursuing a career in Travel & Tourism field. After several years working as a Quality Control Chemist in a Sugar Mill Laboratory, I decided to venture into the Industry that keeps on giving!
In 2013, I was successful in obtaining the role as a Travel Specialist at Jetsetter Travel – an opportunity very difficult to classify as a “Job”, as it is has enriched my life and contributed my character in an endless number of ways. Working in the Travel Industry allows me to immerse myself in different cultures, savour myriad cuisines, and experience the awe-inspiring, incredible beauty that our World has to offer. After each venture, I return home a storyteller, eager to share my experiences with loved ones and utilize my knowledge and experience to enrich the future travels of my valued clients.
Just ask me I am an expert: I am currently in the process of obtaining my CLIA (Cruise Line International Association) Accreditation and have successfully obtained Destination Specialisations in the following Countries: Japan, Hong Kong, Fiji and New Zealand. I have achieved Commodore Status in both P&O and Princess and have attended several ship inspections to enhance my product knowledge and recommendation. Up to date product knowledge is the very foundation of providing exceptional customer service. I take every endeavour to build on my product knowledge through Webinars, Ship Inspections and Product Information Evenings/Events where possible.
I have travelled and experienced the amazing places of: Vila (Vanuatu), Noumea, Lifou (New Caledonia), Christchurch, Auckland, Napier, Wellington (New Zealand), Bangkok, Phuket (Thailand), Singapore, Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), Athens, Mykonos, Ios, Santorini (Greece), Queensland, New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria (Australia), and most certainly do not plan on stopping at that – everywhere is on my list!
My dream holiday is: The thought of narrowing my “Dream holiday” down to one single destination almost belongs in the ‘Too Hard Basket’, as I wish to experience as many destinations as possible. However, for quite some time, I have dreamt of experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of India – an experience I’m told by many will inevitably “Change your life forever…..” To me, that’s the very definition of Travel.
I am passionate about: Taking my clients on an incredible journey. From the initial enquiry stage, right up until the final documentation process – I take great pride and enjoyment in planning tailored Itineraries to suit my clients every need – with a warm, personal touch. The cherry on top, is the joy I receive in making that much anticipated follow-up call to re-live the highlights!
My most memorable travel experience: Witnessing the magic, awe and unbelievable beauty of a Santorini Sunset fading into the Caldera, whilst dining Cliffside with a Mojito in hand. Definitely a #TakeMeBack moment!
When I hear the word ‘Travel’ I think: “See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask for no guarantees, ask for no security…” – Ray Bradbury
