Excellent customer Care

Booking our first time cruise, Alana was a great help with her suggestions but was always focused on our own requests, she gave us many different quotes and changed them to suit us. Very patient and made us feel very appreciated. Later Vickie also helped with separate requests.... We now have two cruises booked. Very professional service. Quick yo respond and always very pleasant on emails and phones.
