I just wanted to say a huge thank you for such a wonderful day on Saturday. I could not have been more surprised being called to the front of the queue and being taken to a lovely upstairs table. I had a fantastic time and then to have a birthday cake presented to me, well I was overwhelmed. I have told many of my friends about the day and thoroughly recommend the cruise.
Thank you David, it will certainly be a birthday to remember!!
