Unravel Travel with Martha Nell Beatty - Travel Consultant

Welcome to Unravel Travel

with Martha Nell Beatty

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.

My goal for this site is to share with you observations of what is happening in this fast-changing, ever-changing travel world.

I also want to share with you what I have experienced on recent travels and also thoughts and observations from friends and clients as they travel the world.

Being part of Frosch Travel and through them the consortium, Signature Travel Network, gives me the ability to offer some rare travel opportunities and values. Family-owned Frosch of Houston has great buying power because of its size but it is also an agency that stresses treating clients in a personal manner.

I aim to be responsive to the travelers’ needs and desires. I can help analyze and compare the many possibilities available for a trip, and in today’s online world I can act as an editor for all the offerings. I am here to take care of the myriad minor details that are part of travel planning.

Future Trips


Silversea Cruises just gets better and better. For many years the company offered what was called all-inclusive cruises. Then in 2015, they have started adding complimentary Silver Select excursions and free Wi-Fi throughout the ships on their Mediterranean sailings. These excursions are in addition to complimentary champagnes, and spirits in suites and public rooms and on-board gratuities. To make the cruise experience even better, Silversea now includes butler service in every suite.

My November 2 cruise on the 540-passenger Silver Spirit is one of these sailings. It is a week's cruise from Civitavecchia (Rome) to Barcelona with stops in such ports as Marseilles for Provence, Palma de Mallorca and Monte Carlo.

One of the pluses on this cruise is the single supplement, which is only 10%. Some cruise lines sell their single staterooms for double the fare (200%).

We are offering our guests a private car and driver in one of three ports, Livorno for Florence, Marseille or Palma de Mallorca. If preferred, the guest may choose to have a $250 shipboard credit.

The vista suites (without verandas) start at $3450 and veranda suites are just $200 more.

Come join me and we can enjoy the ship and the ports together.
