"I was disappointed. The food was mediocre. And not a large variety from what was said on your advertisements. The cruise was not what I expected either. Other then ships yards, there was not much to see and we didn't go out very far. The ship was smaller then I expected also. All in all, I was disappointed. It was a gift to a friend and he and I went together. I am hoping it was just this cruise, because I have given another gift certificate to my daughter and her husband from you for something else. I love the concept of what you are doing. If this works out for them, I will use you again and recommend you to others. If they are not totally pleased, I will not. Thank you for the chance to tell you how I felt about the cruise. All the representatives of your company from the first phone call, as well as the ship's staff, were wonderful."
