Sometimes people amaze me. The Hills have paid a great deal of money to obtain a suite and do not know what comes with the package. It is akin to buying a car and not knowing whether it has ABS or cruise control. Surely it is a little profligate to book like this?
From a once more bemused .....Neil.
Actually we have not paid a great deal of money, it was on a special because my husband is over 55, and we had to make an immediate decision, and as is was actually the same price as a normal cabin we went for it. I have read a lot of your comments on the forum and quite frankly you can be quite rude when someone clearly has just asked for a little knowledge. I was aware of most things if you look at my question it asks about champagne and flowers ect, the reason being if you do not get them I will order some, I can not find anywhere which tells me this and relied on the nice people on this forum ie Mr Aidrich to help. The moral of this message is do not make assumptions about people and how they purchase things, because I did not ask for you opinion on how i book. Just to put your mind at rest, I donts have to worry about purchasing cars I have a company one because I am in sales, so if anybody knows how to buy things its me, maybe a little less patronising attitude may make you into a nicer person, I certainly hope I never have the pleasure of meeting you on a cruise.
Not many people call me nice! So thanks! Call RCI amenities on 01932 824325 to order flowers and champers. When do you sail as I am on her soon?
31st of October, thanks for all your help.
I am doing same cruise on 10th - will post a report when I get back. If you google 'ports of call cruise boards' the first link should take you to a most excellent site full of info of what to do in each port, such has how to navigate the trams in Istanbul!
Will be looking for your report, have a great time.
Seems a reasonable commment from Neil Down.
