I wanted to take a minute to let you know how great a job Clayton has done for me since taking over Lisa’s position while she’s out on maternity leave. He has been thorough, professional, patient with my many questions and gave me all-around great customer service. It’s rare you find someone so committed to doing their job well and I wanted to take this time to call attention to his efforts.

Hi from Canada. Just wanted to thank you for setting up that wonderful trip for me and my friend Laura. We had a wonderful vacation. Everything was super. The ship the Celebration was great and the Hotel on the Bahamas was just what the doctor ordered. We hope to do it again sometime.
Thank you again for all your help in setting up all our reservations.

We just wanted to say thank you, we had a lot of fun on the cruise! Besides being sunburned haha, but if you see another one of those bahama cards filled out by me again its because we want to win again and go back. It’s required by the bahama people we met, they said “we are making you come back to see us”. So I said we will and I hope we win another one, we would definitely go again and do it all over!
