We are Deb and Steve Love, owners of Worlds Of Adventure Vacations. I love to travel. It's been a passion my whole life, it's in my blood. So, when our kids were on their way to adulthood, I decided to go further with it and not only travel for myself, but enrich the lives of others by helping them to see the world through new eyes... and fulfill their travel bucket lists.
After being in the industry for over 15 years- escorting groups, cruising, managing several retail agencies, (including a corporate company that flew me from my home in Salt Lake City to Portland each week to handle their international travel), and owning my own cruise agency, I took a break from travel to become a Realtor and help people find their way home.
Although I loved helping my clients, my wanderlust was always nagging in the back of my mind... so now I have returned to my first great love... helping folks find their travel mojo.
My passion is cruising, I feel that it's the "other half of life" and not for just the experience of cruising itself (cause there is just Nothing like being on a cruise ship} but for the destinations you will visit when you cruise.
As a cruiser, you get a flavor for an area like the Caribbean , the Orient, or Europe, within a familiar environment (the ship). Then, when you find a destination that intrigues you, you can go back and immerse yourself in it's culture and charm (My personal favorite is Italy...can't get enough of it).
Another great love of mine is family travel, which requires that fine art of finding just the right destination and activities that will engage children as well as entertain the parents and grandparents, providing that all important bonding and memory making.
Now, if you are thinking Walt Disney World... either with family, or adults only... from Florida to Shanghaiâ€¦then I have to let you know that I am Definitely a Disney girl ( I have a custom magic band, and my formal and informal ears), I'm always available to Talk Disney. I should also mention I speak in Disney songs and Wizard spells... So if you are thinking about a trip to Disney or Hogwarts with family or just the adults I'm here to help create a magical vacation.
So there you have it, my love and passion for all that is travel and I hope it will transfer to you as well. Come chat with me, let me show you the world and help you fill your travel bucket list.

Recent Trips: Sailed aboard the Disney Dream at Christmas time taking with us some first time cruisers. All they could say was " Wow". We followed up with 3 days (which wasn't enough to do justice to it...just sayin) at Disneyworld staying at Wilderness lodge. One of our clients actually cried when we went into Pandora at Animal Kingdom she was so overwhelmed with the beauty and attention to detail.
Sailed aboard the Oasis of the Seas (RCCL) for an Eastern Caribbean itinerary. Although we did not get to go to Coco Cay because of weather (that should be fixed with the addition of Perfect Day at Coco Cay's new pier so no tendering) we went to San Juan instead. Afterwards to St. Thomas for some much needed beach time (ah Megan's Bay) and St Maarten (my beloved market for LLadro). I do so love the Sea days, and loved the Boardwalk stateroom, watched the aqua theater diving show right from my balcony.
Took a trip down to Durango Co and rode the narrow gage train up to Silver City (you cannot access this mining town any other way). It was fabulous, cause well...we love trains too. Rode some rapids, visited a Pueblo village built into the rocks, took a peek at the Grand Canyon (the glass bridge on the South side was closed but I'll get there again).
Traveled to Stuttgart, Germany for the Christmas festival, tasted Glurgwine & Spaetzle for the first time (loved them both), got lost with a cab driver who didn't follow directions and I had to use my limited German (thank you Frau Roeter!) to try to tell him to take us back to the hotel... .that was fun, and heard a local choir sing in an open air cathedral, can I just say... amazing?
Cruised out of New Orleans (can I tell you how much I love Beignets at Cafe du Monde) on a Jazz Cruise with Holland America. Swam with the stingrays on Grand Cayman Island, took the excursion to Playa del Carmen and on to Tulum and Shel-ha resort.
Escorted an incentive group to Italy specifically Rome and Venice, which included, among other things, a private after hours tour of the Vatican museum. Breathtaking! Loved the water taxis in Venice the drivers are funny. Next time, when duties allow, will ride the gondolas at dusk. The city is beautiful.
Traveled with a group to Tokyo, Kyoto, and Hongkong. Visited the palace and walked the Ginza in Tokyo where we stuck out like sore thumbs. Tokyo business dress is dark suits, white shirts, and with their dark hair looks like a sea of Black and White with a blonde sticking out in the middle (me). Kyoto was beautiful, visited the Buddha there and rode the bullet train back. Our Japanese guide was so worried about the wandering Americans who wouldn't stay in line to board the train (you only have 2 minutes and the train leaves). Hong Kong was amazing, Steve bought a suit that the customs agent back in the US kept trying to get him to say he paid more for than he did... even showed him the receipt. Guess Steve has one of those faces.
