Cathy Watkins

Sheboygan, WI

All Inclusive & River Cruise Specialist

Helping my customers experience the world via Land, Ocean and River has been my passion for over 20 years. If it's dipping your toes into the crystal-clear waters of the Riviera Maya, climbing the Dunn’s River Falls in Jamaica or sipping wine in the Tuscan region of Italy I’m the one for you!

All-Inclusive Resort are a very relaxing way to enjoy your vacation without the concern of carry money around. Mexico and Caribbean destinations have the most All-Inclusive Resorts for families, multi-generational, couples, friends, groups and more. Using my own experiences and continually training, I can provide very valuable information as to which resort will most closely match what a customer has in mind. Relationships with my clients are invaluable to make your vacation amazing. Experiences make the best memories and stories you will share over and over!

River Cruising

Cliffs of Moher, Ireland. Beautiful!!!
Cliffs of Moher, Ireland. Beautiful!!!

How incredible would it be to wake up every day to a new port, and a new adventure, or waking up to the beauty of little villages and beautiful scenery passing by. This is what river cruising is all about, getting close to the beauty and splendor of the land, wherever you may be. You will find yourself enjoying the view from your cabin windows, or deck, or spending the day ashore exploring the village by foot or even bicycling. There is something for everyone, a river cruise is an adventure worth taking!

Let’s talk about your travel ideas and interest then work together to find the perfect river cruise for you!

Los Cabos is a land full of contrast, from breathtaking seas, to desert and mountains. It’s a very diverse destination, offering everything from sport fishing to rock...Read more.

Mapping out our trip was exactly as we needed it, a direct flight to Denver. Handicapped services were requested for myself and my wife. Flights were on time departing and arriving. We were very happy with your service to us at Travel Leaders Discovery World.

Lifetime of Memories ~ Negril, Jamaica

I personally knew Cathy so when booking our honeymoon it was a no-brainer to go through her and Travel Leaders. She made the process simple and most importantly convenient with our hectic lives while planning a wedding. We gave her our potential destinations and she did the rest. We ended up visiting Negril, Jamaica at the Couples Swept Away Resort. Hands down the best experience - thank you again Cathy for the lifetime of memories!

She does what the internet cant, she helps us determine where we want to go, what we can do and most importantly we always can book together, get a great deal, and it's all managed by one person - amazing.

Next cruise adventure
Once again Cathy provided excellent and prompt service. We had to cancel our Viking River Cruise due to concerns about the Coronavirus. In a short period of time she accomplished our cancellation and assisted us in scheduling another cruise for next year. She obtained a good location on the ship and arranged the transfer of all our funds from the cancelled trip to the new one. kudos to Cathy. Always extremely helpful.
