Every detail was communicated, followed up and confirmed. I received an email with updated departure information, and while the printing of the check in information seems minor, it really is a detail that makes the process easy. Rob was able to answer all my enquiries swiftly and he was very knowledgable. We will use you guys again for our next cruise."
