Thank you
- Karin Rust
Every arrangement regarding the Cruise was confirmed at least a month before the embarking day. This made everything run smoothly on our end. You can tell that they’ve been there before, and they’re experts at what they do. I loved the Galaxy yacht, it has a great itinerary, we wanted to visit San Cristobal, and they took us exactly where we were looking for
Highly recommended
