    Dear Mrs Cook, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. It is true some members of the crew are Hungarians who speak little English. However our Purser and host/hostess speak English and are available at any time to help you. We indeed offer one meal alternative. However, if you don't like something or follow a special diet, it can be brought to the purser's attention and the Chef will offer an alternative. The servers do their best to quickly bring the food to the table. As it is the case on all of our ships, they change the service’s order so it is not always the same clients that are served first/last. Best regards, CroisiEurope Customer Care Department

    Dear Mr. Davis, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are really glad to read you had such a great time on board our ship. We'll make sure to let Lucy know about your lovely review. It is true we can't always let the guests board early on the first day as the crew is still busy getting the ship ready for the cruise (there was probably a disembarkation the same morning). We hope we'll be able to welcome you again soon on board one of our ships. Best regards, CroisiEurope Customer Care Department
