Past cruises fantastic, carried over cruise from 2021 felt left in the cold

I rated Cruise Kings 4 stars as I have been on some wonderful cruises ie Hawaii, and New England to name just a few, however after rebooking my 2021 Alaska and Rocky Mountaineer bucket list cruise to 2022 I really felt alone to the point were I thought my adviser had left the company all my phone calls to her direct line went straight to answer machine then not returned , to the point were I had to say I thought you had left the company. Having now spoken to a manager all has been resolved and we and my daughter and her husband have booked for Norway in 2023. Great job by Valerie who was a complete star.

The town, which is the administrative hub of the area, claims about 2,100 residents, and is the gateway for most adventures in Svalbard.

With a whaling history dating to the 17th century, this area encompasses the islands of Barentsoya and Edgeoya.

The area is considered an important resting place for walruses, and kittiwakes colonize the steep cliffs.
