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.
