"We were blown away with the high level of knowledge and service Kate provided in researching, booking, and seeing us through the whole intricate process of our cruise -- even securing a free cabin upgrade, and trouble shooting. When we used another, supposedly "prestigous" discount service, they provided nothing even close to the same level of knowledge and service, which required a lot more effort and action on our part... making the trip not as enjoyable. We'd definitely book through Prestige Travel for all future cruises!"
