Luxury Cruise and Group Travel Specialist
Originally from East Africa, Shemin’s passion for travel was ignited when she won a trip for two to Hawaii, Fiji and Australia in 1983. Soon after graduating from SFU with a bachelor’s degree in Criminology, Shemin spent a decade working at the Supreme Court of BC before re-locating to Ontario where she spent several years selling and investing in real estate. Upon returning to her favourite place to live, Vancouver, she kept busy volunteering at her daughters’ school, including chairing the annual gala fundraiser for two years. Needless to say, Shemin does not sit still for very long!
Shemin got hooked on cruising after her first one in 1989 which subsequently led to numerous more cruises all over the world. This has allowed her to accumulate tremendous knowledge about various cruise lines so that she can recommend the best product to suit her clients’ needs. Shemin joined the travel industry in 2017 to share her passion for cruising by curating unique and memorable experiences. After some early success, Shemin quickly realized she wanted to focus on Luxury Cruises and Group Travel, and has since curated several groups such as her recent Singapore to Mumbai luxury cruise which was led by the famed Vancouver chef, Vikram Vij. By the end of the two-week cruise, the group of 36 guests evolved from mostly complete strangers to good friends. Connecting people is what Shemin loves to do, and there is no better way to accomplish this than by travelling together!
