Natasha recently joined us as a cruise consultant and she's already getting fantastic client feedback: "Thank you very much for your excellent after sales service, quick response and for trying to avoid the extra payment due to my dad’s doctor’s recommendation. Highly appreciated. Please pass on to your supervisor/manager and will definitely use your service in the future."
