Happy Customers

This was our first cruise, and I was concerned about motion sickness. I was advised to book an inside cabin in the middle. We did and I am so grateful for that advise as at no time did we feel the movement at all, others did get seasick, but we were fine, everything we were told was spot on. So in future we will have no problem booking with you."
