Cruise Vacation Specialist


About Us

EMK Travel was formed on the premise that nothing beats personalized service, experience, and attention to detail. While many internet sites promise special deals, travelers are often unaware of restrictions and exceptions.  Making the right choice based on price alone is not always the best course of action for travelers. We hear too many stories of travelers regretting that they didn't call a full-service agency.  

For over 33 years, E. M. Kaplan saw the world through the eyes of a professional Architect, as well as a father, and husband, when traveling with his family. In order to balance professional and family obligations, Kaplan realized that Cruising was the best mode of travel. It enabled him to combine the desire to learn, spend time with family, and provide the opportunity to relax stress-free, while visiting some of the most beautiful destinations in the world.  Since 1970, he has traveled the globe on over 50 Cruises, including Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, New England, the Caribbean, Scandinavia, Russia, the British Isles, and Europe, to name a few.  

With the number of dissatisfied people booking travel on the internet, Kaplan is confident there will be a growing number of people who will go back to the personal attention and careful planning, that a full-service travel agency offers.  They will want to deal with a person rather than a search engine.  That is why he formed EMK Travel, specializing in the booming Cruise industry.  So the time is now to get onboard with EMK Travel!  Let them show you how they will provide personalized service and work to get the most value for your money.
