    Dear Mr. Scholefield, We are very sorry, it must have been a really stressful way to start the trip. The mooring dock was indeed changed at the last minute. We failed to inform some clients in time and would like to apologize. Tourradar is absolutely not to be blamed. We hope you had a great time once on board. Best regards, CroisiEurope Customer Care Department
