We have known Claudette Norton for 15 years. We have traveled extensively during this time period on cruise ships, land based tours and custom tailored one-on-one tours. Claudette has orchestrated the planning and care giving for us during all of our many adventures, drawing on her extensive time in all facets of the travel industry and her own vast personal travel experiences.
We have traveled with Claudette’s guiding hand to Antarctica, Alaska, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia/New Zealand. Her attention to detail, work ethic, business acumen and diligence are beyond reproach. There has been no challenge or location where she has be unable to provide expert advice and exhaustive alternatives and options. She is a very creative thinker, reliable, trustworthy and able to turn any situation/opportunity into a magical experience for her clients. Her attention to detail is beyond reach. She has a vast network of world- class colleagues and acquaintances around the world, culminating from her extensive work with very large cruise operations for which she has put together elaborate gala functions and developed/orchestrated creative land-based tours. At every opportunity, members of Claudette’s network that we have met have the opportunity to meet, have made it abundantly clear that they all hold her in very, very high esteem and that is because of who she is and the splendid reputation she has built for herself. They feel blessed that they have met her, have had the opportunity to work with her and look forward to working with her as often as possible. Claudette built her own successful travel company to help handle her many diverse operations and clients.
This company is steeped with terrific talented people, all who exemplify the same exemplary business and personal characteristics as Claudette herself. We have recommended Claudette to several new clients. We have heard nothing by rave reviews about their dealings with her and her company. They don’t come any better than Claudette!

I just wanted to show our appreciation for a fantastic evening last night. We have received many, many compliments both last evening and also today sharing praise for the event and the whole occasion.
The setting was delightful, the food and wine excellent, the service very very good, the boys choir just beautiful with the very nice touch of having them in a line-up as the guest arrived and also of course, walking the room after their songs. The music and band were also thoroughly enjoyed and I know that you and I agreed that the evening rushed by and was over too quickly.
It was a pleasure to see you again, if only briefly, and I look forward to seeing you at another event in the future.
Take care, thanks again for a superb and successful event. Good luck with the Queen Elizabeth next week!

Just a short note to say what a pleasure it was to see you in Miami.
I am so so sorry that I missed the Gala Dinner, but thank you for the beautiful book you sent; it was a beautiful evening and another signature Claudette event!
Claudette, thank you for all your support; I look forward to working with you again.

I just wanted to write to thank you so much for the organization and delivery of the recent Cunard World Voyage dinners in Auckland. They went very well indeed!
I thought the feeling in the rooms towards Cunard, as a result of both evenings, was tremendous and we have since had many thank you letters and compliments from guests on board both Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth.
Tracy and I will be in touch with regard to future opportunities.
Again, many thanks and kind regards.
