Charlie grew up in the travel business – literally stamping travel brochures at his parents’ travel agency when he was 14 years of age. At 18 he went with his mother on his first cruise traveling to Bermuda on the Ocean Monarch which was often called the Ocean Maniac due to its shallow draft. He remembers his mother getting seasick just after the ship left New York harbor.

Charlie has cruised on some of the greatest ocean-going ships in the world, among them the Queen Elizabeth I, the Michaelangelo, the Nieuw Amsterdam, the Rotterdam and the Oceanic.

Although becoming a successful attorney, Charlie has always maintained his interest in the travel agency business where he is a long-time member of ASTA, CLIA and the Ensemble Travel Group.

Charlie believes that his love of the sea and sea-going vessels stems from his great-grandfather Thorvald Sch. Poekel who was the great Danish-American yacht designer and boat builder. His most famous yacht was the Vencedor that raced in 1896 on Lake Erie during the first U.S. – Canadian competition. In honor of his grand-father Charlie has created the “Vencedor Award” which is awarded to outstanding cruiseships. Past recipients have been the Silver Galapagos, Seadream I, and the River Royale.

Charlie is the President of Dream Luxury Cruises and can be reached at He is extremely proud of the new branch office located on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, Florida.
