“Just a brief note to say thank you for your efforts. The travel arrangements went very smoothly. My cabin was midships on the lowest deck, and was exactly where I would have chosen for myself. The first two days were the roughest weather I have ever encountered, with winds 45-50 knots. There were only about twenty other passengers in the dining room with me (out of 106), during that time! Very congenial company on board. Plenty of activity, usually two shore trips per day, with choices of charging and grades between, right down to a gentle saunter.”
“Thank you for your welcome home. The holiday was absolutely brilliant. I have been expedition cruising since 1992 and this was the BEST of them all. The staff were so careful, watchful and caring. They were always available and collectively so funny. It was just great. Now, so was all your organising – thank you for all your help.”
