Welcome to Jolly Mon Vacations and it's branch, River Cruise Guru.

My mission is to help find the perfect vacation that FITS YOUR TRAVEL STYLE. There are a lot of travel choices out there. Making the right one, in the right location that meets your needs, desires and style is one of the most important factors in your enjoyment. I recommend SAFE locations, resorts, tours and ships that are a cut above the rest. 

Trying to save money by booking yourself online? I've seen far too many people try to book on an internet site and not see the whole picture. While looking for a romantic getaway they ended up at a raucous Spring Break resort instead, ruining their getaway. Those 'volume' booking sites don't look out for you...they look for your money. We are on your side and work in your best interest.

Are you a control freak? No problem, you can be as involved in the planning as you desire!


No deception here. Expert advice from certfied professionals that are in the know and easy to talk to.

Contact us today and see for yourself how easy and stress-free it is to have professional assistance working on your side!

We are All-Inclusive Resort & River Cruise Experts!

We take your vacation plans to the next level...

We are an independent affiliate of Nexion, backed by Travel Leaders Group.


​"We returned last month from our Anniversary vacation to Couples Swept Away in Negril, Jamaica. Pete did an excellent job recommending things we would like and sharing his personal experiences he had there with us. We felt like we were more then prepared when we arrived and that made for a very relaxing vacation.

​We highly recommend Jolly Mon Vacations and look forward to planning our next vacation with Pete. Thank you so much for all your hard work!!"
