Dear Simon,

Now that we are back from our holidays we can take the time to write a most fulsome thank you for your superb service.

As this was our first cruise we were glad of all the information you provided even, or especially, the tiny details which made such a difference to our general enjoyment. You were wonderfully patient with our endless queries but we went away well prepared and with confidence in a new environment.

The information that you sent on the excursions was especially useful and enabled us to make the best use of our time. We did see some fantastic places, icons and mosaics.

The cruise was a most satisfying and stress free holiday mainly down to the work you put into it in interpreting our requirements and making ‘things happen’ to suit our needs. Thank you so very much.

Now…..for next year……

With best wishes

Elizabeth and Alastair
