We rang to ask some questions about a cruise we were interested in. The agent was very helpful and knowledgable, he answered all aour questions and gave us a lot more information. As a result we booked the cruise.

Great start to th holiday.

Very pleasant and helpful guiding me through the booking process.

First Class Experience.

24 Sep 2018

Gerald was fantastic. He knew everything there was to know about our cruise. He answered all our questions and even raised some points and made some suggestions we hadn't thought of. (even though we are experienced cruisers) It was completely effortless. All emailed confirmations arrived within minutes and without a single mistake.

Not enough information

24 Sep 2018

He could have included the onboard spends infrmation on the email we asked about return coach fare and when I chescked it’s twice the price he quoted if we were hbooking now also it doesn’t state cabin no on the information we have received

A very satisfactory experience indeed

23 Sep 2018

Gerald was very helpful indeed, explained things well and thorough. He discussed with us the issue of the length of daylight on any one day, we had not thought of this. His comments helped us to decide upon which date we chose to travel in order to get the maximum benefit. We were connected to an Agent after only a very short time which is unusual these days. The different types of cabins etc were fully explained. The door was left open for us to call back if we had any queries. Overall a very satisfactory discussion, and so we booked.

last minute booking handled very well thanks

23 Sep 2018

very good service hope to be using again very shortly
