    Dear Mr. Carter, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us. We are glad to read you overall enjoyed your cruise. It is true we offer one choice of meal. However, our cruise director and Chef are at disposal to offer alternatives. We take note of your comment on the vegetables.

    We are sorry to read about your experience on board our ship. We make a strong point to care for every passenger the same. Please be assured we'll make sure such a situation does not happen again. This ship was indeed refurbished in 2007. We've taken good note of your remarks and will pass them on to the appropriate persons. Your remark on the breakfast buffet is quite surprising as the staff has to replace the food until 9am. We are sorry if that was not the case during your stay. We hope you'll still choose to cruise with us in the future to enjoy the usual quality of our services. Best regards, CroisiEurope Customer Care Department

    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
