Growing up in multicultural Winnipeg, Canada, Cheryl Gilmore vowed to one day travel and see the world. After graduating from design in Toronto (1991) and following a season of local theatre, a unique opportunity arose to experience the high seas and she joined the SS Norway. The Norway- once part of the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet – was the last of the great ocean liners.
Cheryl was hired as Wardrobe Supervisor for the Broadway musicals that were performed in the Saga Theatre. Fast forward decades, Cheryl has had the opportunity to work with multiple production companies and cruise lines worldwide including Royal Viking, Holland America, Renaissance and Silversea. She has sailed to multiple countries and travelled extensively in many countries (UK, Europe, Russia, the Philippines, South America) as well as numerous North American ports. After nearly 16 of years of “touring” for work, Cheryl became a full-time travel consultant so she could use her industry knowledge to benefit others. She has experience with destinations and ports all over the world, and the knowledge to maximize your choice of itinerary. Cheryl has travelled to six continents and has worked alongside leading travel brands for most of her life.
As a travel consultant with TourMagination’s partner, Bonaventure Travel, Cheryl not only specializes in cruises, but offers distinctive, individual programs that include customized cruise routes with special excursions, guided tours around Africa and Asia, and interesting activities like cooking classes in Italy. Working with TourMagination for the past 5 years, she has been helping to build engaging custom group tour itineraries to destinations including Cuba, India, Russia, France, Morocco, Egypt, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and Indonesia.
Cheryl’s extensive experience and attention to detail enable her to plan stress-free itineraries that allow individuals, families, and groups to relax and enjoy their adventures.
“I believe that there is beauty in every destination and with every country, there are unique opportunities. I truly love crafting the best possible journeys so that travellers make the most out of their experiences.”
