Happy Customers

We will steer clear of P&O as we were on the same ship in May this year and the food and service in that short time left a lot to be desired,but as usual we had a great time as we always do and we will continue to book our holidays through Clean Cruising as you treat us like real people not just a number also we loved our last minute cabin, Kind Regards, Jude Allan"
