Cher Toroshan, J'ai enfin des nouvelles des clients. Tout c'est très très bien passé lors de la croisière. Transferts parfait - respect des consignes. Le capitaine leur a suggérer de changer d'itinéraire; les clients ont changé et ils été très satisfait de la suggestion. Ils n'ont pu se rendre à Kalymnos car la mer était trop forte et le capitaine n'a pas voulu prendre de risque. Bonne nourriture - bon rapport avec les membres d'équipage. Je te remercie pour cette collaboration très fructueuse.
