Alana K Bishop Monaghan


Contact Alana

Alana caught the “travel bug” in 1982 while traveling around the world on Semester at Sea. She opened Alana International Travel in 1987; and, has been assisting her clients in “making their dreams come true” since then. Alana is a Certified Travel Counselor and Master Cruise Counselor; as well as, holding many certificates from various cruise lines, tour operators and hotel chains. It’s difficult for her to choose a favorite destination, because she loves so many places for so many different reasons. Alana loves a challenge, the more exotic, the better!

Besides travel, Alana helps to manage several family businesses in New Orleans: Molly’s at the Market, ‘13’, and Junction. So, if you are planning a trip to New Orleans, she can help with that too!
