A born and bred Dutchman, Clabbers’ love for cruise travel shows in his personal travel experience: more than 100 cruises and expeditions to all seven continents. A luxury hotelier by trade, Clabbers lived and worked in Asia, Australia, and Europe before opening Chicago-based boutique leisure agency Q Cruise + Travel in 2006.

Clabbers serves as cruise committee chair for luxury travel network Virtuoso, and through connections and partnerships offers extra benefits to his clients on many cruise departures. He especially enjoys sharing the culture of his home country, the Netherlands, and neighboring destinations like Belgium, Germany, and the United Kingdom, whether in combination with a European river or ocean cruise, or as a standalone adventure.
