Faculty
Andrew S. Bagg, MD, FAAAAI, FCAAAI
Assistant Professor UCF College of Medicine
President Florida Allergy Asthma & Immunology Society
Allergy Asthma Specialists
Altamonte Springs, Orlando, Ocoee, and Clermont, Florida

Board-Certified: American Board of Allergy & Immunology
Secondary-Specialty: American Board of Internal Medicine
Fellowship: Allergy & Immunology, University of South Florida, Tampa, FL
Residency: Internal Medicine, University of South Florida, Tampa, FL
MD: Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, NY
Clinical Appointments: Associate Professor, University of Central Florida College of Medicine, Florida Hospital, Orlando Regional Healthcare System
Member: American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology; American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology; American Lung Association; Clinical Immunology Society; Florida Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Society, Florida Medical Association, Central Florida Pediatric Society

The specialty of allergy, asthma and immunology combines my passion for science and research with my desire to ease the suffering of my patients. I have also had allergy treatment in the past that worked very well for me, so I've experienced firsthand what specialized allergy care can do.

Allergies and asthma can have so many different symptoms, and patients don't always have a 'textbook' problem. That's why experience is so important. Knowing what to look for, putting together all the pieces of a puzzle - symptoms, medical history, lifestyle - helps me get an accurate diagnosis and the most effective treatment for you.

Giving you the right treatment starts with a very simple but vitally important activity: listening. While I use state-of-the-art tests and procedures, I still believe that you are the best source of information about your own health. Taking the time to listen and understand you is crucial to giving you the best care, and it's also one of the best parts of what I do. I enjoy talking with you, getting to know about you and your life and keeping you involved in your care. We'll work together to make sure you get the results you need.

Dr. Bagg has been recognized as one of "America's Top Physicians" for the past four years. He gives presentations to local medical training programs and for the American Lung Association. He is also involved in clinical research and is currently conducting clinical studies with medical students from UCF as an Associate Professor at the College of Medicine. He has published his research findings over 20 times and has presented his research at the World Allergy Organization meeting in Thailand. Colleagues have elected Dr. Bagg to be the future president of the Florida Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Society. For the past 2 years, Dr. Bagg was named one of the "Best Doctors in America" in the field of Allergy and Immunology.

Ports of Call
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy (Embark and Debark) - Ah, the Eternal City: Romance, culture, food, history, art and fashion. You'll have to plan your time carefully as the sights of Rome are captivating and seemingly endless: the Colosseum and Forum, Trevi Fountai and the incredible Pantheon. And, of course, the Vatican is there with St. Peter's, it's museums and the Sistine Chapel. And, of course, there are also world class (secular) museums for lovers of every art era and great food is easily found (if you take a brief stroll away from the most heavy tourist areas to find the good stuff). No, you really can't fit it all in one day (or even a week, to be honest) so plan a couple days enjoying the many pleasures Rome has to offer before and/or after your cruise conference.
Athens (Piraeus), Greece - You'll climb the Acropolis, the site of ancient Athens, crowned by the immortal Parthenon. Its chiseled columns were raised by Pericles, Athens's great general. Rest your running shoes in the temple of Nike. A little shopping and souvlaki in the Plaka and you're practically an (ancient) Athenian!
Dubrovnik, Croatia - This ancient city is set on a peninsula and surrounded by a 1,000 year old protective wall. Said to be one of the prettiest spots in the world, visiting its old-city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is like stepping back in time. Dubrovnik is also a principal filming location for scene's set in "King's Landing" from the blovkbuster book (and television series) "Game of Thrones." There is also excellent snorkeling to be found here in the pristine waters of the Adratic sea.
Katakolon, Greece - Explore the site of the very first Olympic Games! Ancient Olympia is a short drive from Katakolon to see where the sacred flame is still lit every Olympic year. Wonder at the ruins of the awesome Temple of Zeus.
Kotor, Montenegro - Though small, this city is vibrant and shining and its people are happy to share their city with all who come.
Naples, Italy - Capital of Southern Italy, the largest city of Campania, Naples is the third most populated city in Italy (after Rome and Milan), with over a million inhabitants, and is the most important industrial center and trading port for the South. Naples itself can provide a day's fun and entertainment, if its somewhat rundown appearance doesn't dissuade you. Or, join a tour of incredible Pompeii, frozen in time since A.D. 79 when Mt. Vesuvius brought an end to that then-thriving city. Or, take a quick ferry across the bay to the flowery Isle of Capri. Or, (yes, there's more) visit fabulous Sorrento, vacation spot for the well to do.
Santorini, Greece - The view from the top of Santorini is breathtaking. The harbor below is said to be the site of the lost city of Atlantis! Visit the ruins of Akrotiri and discover a recently unearthed Minoan town which was extinguished by a volcanic cataclysm in 1500 B.C.

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
