Aurora Cruises and Travel is a home for Nadia Jastrjembskaia, Elite Cruise Counselor


Aurora Cruises and Travel

Aurora Cruises and Travel is a family business owned by Nadia Jastrjembskaia and operated by her daughter, Kat Jastrjembskaia.

Our Story

As all family owned businesses, we are truly prideful in our work and strive to deliver the best customer service for our clients – suite life lovers.

Formed in 2008, Nadia envisioned the company to cater to those excited by cruising and adventurous to seek out new destinations. The word “Aurora” came to mind as encompassing the quest for adventure and remarkable journeys.

And such, Aurora Cruises and Travel was formed to specialize in the river and ocean cruising. Providing more than a reservation number to our clients, we listen to their travel needs to offer the best fit for them with personal expertise.

While our clients are well informed, they may also not have hours on end to scour through multiple sites for basic information or reviews. We work to simplify that process and provide concierge services around their requests.

Nadia Jastrjembskaia Elite Cruise Counselor

Managing Director

Hi my name is Nadia and I am certified as an Elite Cruise Counselor with Cruise Line International Association and an Expert Plus member with Royal Caribbean.

I specialize in cruise suites and around the world cruises. I have a PhD degree from P.F. Lesgaft University of Physical Education and Sports, was a National RSG coach for Malaysia and co-authored a book called Rhythmic Sportive Gymnastics with Olympic Champion, Yuri Titov.

Cruising has been my passion from childhood. I’ve accumulated over 70 cruises and ship inspections since 1997. I was also a contest winner recently as one of 5 of over 500 agents within Royal Caribbean to attend Royal Caribbean’s unveiling presentation as well as a tour of the Quantum of the Seas in Papenburg, Germany in August 2014.

Director of Operations

Hello all! My name is Kat, and I am the Operations Director for Aurora Cruises and Travel. I am very fortunate to be in this position and this dynamic industry.

My background encapsulates many years of traveling through Europe, Asia, and North America, all places I have lived at one point. I have called Florida home now for about 15 years, completing my Bachelors Degree in Finance and Economics at Florida Atlantic University.

I spent some time living in Key West and the Tampa area, working in the financial and legal field after FAU before being lured into the wonderful world that is the Travel Industry. I have enjoyed the transition into a customer service role as I have had the pleasure of getting to know our remarkable clients. I make myself as accessible to clients whether by email, phone or even text during and after business hours.
