Rodney Lau


Debbe and I began Travel Specialists in 1995 to focus on luxury cruising and travel. We felt that if we listened to our clients and understood what was important to them, we would be able to provide wonderful adventures. From beginning to end we strive to deliver a seamless and fully crafted travel experience. We bring our years of experience and knowledge to bear when advising and creating those indelible travel memories for you. We look forward to the opportunity of serving you.

Debbe Lau

Vice President

I had been in the retail business my whole life, starting at Ethel’s while in high school, then Liberty House, McInerny, and then Guava Lane and Vis-à- Vis with my partners. When I sold my stores in 1994 and started working with Rodney, I felt there was a wonderful opportunity in luxury cruising and travel. Rodney took his first cruise on the Seabourn Legend and the next year we cruised on the Radisson Diamond. We have taken over 30 cruises and tours and are committed to applying our experience and knowledge in assisting with your travel dreams. If you have ever dreamed of that special place or experience, we say WHY NOT NOW?
