    Dear Mrs. Turta, It's true that because of works on locks, we had to modify some aspects of your cruise. The cruise indeed started in a hotel. Otherwise, we would have had to cancel the visit of Salamanca which would have been worst. If you'd like to cruise with us again please contact your travel agent and we will offer you a discount. Best regards, CroisiEurope Customer Care Department
