Happy Traveler Comment
Glynna, Months after our wonderful Alaska cruise of May 2009, I was thinking about you this morning and the great help you provided. Your attention to detail and quick action provided a wonderful, economical upgrade to a veranda room on Holland America's Ryndam! Everything about this trip was truly "first class" - and the nice bottle of California red waiting in our room was a lovely touch. I could not be more pleased with your service. When we contemplate taking another cruise, you will be the first person I contact. — Bob C.
