A small-ship aficionado, Curry knows the best vessels operating in the polar regions, including Le Commandant Charcot and Magellan Explorer. Her expertise for matching guests to ships also extends to places like the Galápagos Islands and, lately, Alaska’s Inside Passage.

"My speciality is helping travelers find the very best match for their small ship expedition cruise interests," she says. "This spans the globe from a Mediterranean cruise that visits less-touristed Greek Islands, such as Amorgos, to an epic Ross Sea adventure in Antarctica that semi-circumnavigates the continent."

Her special area of expertise: Antarctica. "I could safely guess that I book more of a variety of different small ships to Antarctica than likely anyone else on the planet," Curry says. She recently arranged a trip for one repeat client to travel to the remote Snow Hill Island, where wild emperor penguins breed.

ADDITIONAL SPECIALTIES: Polar Regions (from Antarctica to Svalbard) and Ecuador (the Galápagos Islands)

Languages Spoken: English, German, and Spanish

Average Daily Spend: $1,000 per person in Antarctica (other destinations, such as Croatia, average around $250 per person)

Trip Planning Fees: None
