Booking was made easy and were very helpful during that process.

Booking with CruiseKings was made easy and staff were very helpful and answered any query made. They were very good in ensuring the booking was as I wanted and explained everything fully. This is my first booking with this company and so I cannot comment on the actual holiday until later. Hopefully this will go ahead without too much trouble or restrictions. I also think that you can only really know how good a company is by how the deal with any problems that may arise. Hopefully my holiday will be plain sailing with no issues.

Was delighted with the customer care I received from Melissa! Explained everything very comprehensively and gave some great advice.

Mrs Brogan / June 2021

GREAT!

Really pleased with the holiday purchase. What made the experience so good was the holiday rep, Heidi. A real fountain of knowledge, explained the various options that were available to us. Would have to say without all her knowledge and patience, we probably would not have booked.
