I would like to thank you profusely for you wonderful help and assistance in fixing up our first cruise experience. If we go for another cruise it shall be Royal Caribbeans!

Wonderful experience on Celebrity Cruises in Galapagos
We had a wonderful time in the Galapagos and Peru celebrity cruise. Our entire baggage was handled by porters. And in the Galapagos cruise we had very helpful naturalists taking us around. The food, rooms, hospitality and entertainment was very good. In Ecuador we were able to stand on the equator which was very interesting. Especially the whirling of the water in both directions and an egg being balanced on a nail. In the Peru cruise the hotels were excellent except the lunch in macchiato pic by where the food and service was below par. Not up to celebrity standard. The dinner in Peru rail with music and entertainment was excellent. The hotel monasteries and the hotel in Cisco were excellent especially the last day dinner in church. I would like to particularly mention about Aracelli who was very good and obliging.

Feedback about my First Cruise Booking through Tirun
I set sail on 24th July on the Harmony of the Seas from Barcelona with my 14 yr old daughter. We plan to do this mother-daughter bonding trip before her studies take up most of her time in higher classes.
Being my first time on a cruise and for that matter with Tirun, I must take the time to convey to you that it has already been a smooth sailing experience and that is even before we have embarked on our journey.
I was fortunate to have Kanika be my Cruise Counsellor most of the time and she took it upon herself to make me her personal customer. That for me, was really special! Because it meant not having to speak to different people everyday in Tirun and briefing them on what transpired the previous days with my cruise planner, bookings, etc. Also there would be less inconsistencies in the answers to my queries. No matter what my query, however important or mundane (which you might have answered countless times to other customers), it was treated with respect and answered. If not the same day, then she was sure to revert without me having to remind her the following day. She always went that extra mile. Courteous, really knowledgeable about her business, well mannered and intuitive about foreseeable problems I might have! She's a keeper!
I honestly found Tirun online and booked this tour at the spur of the moment. So I didn't expect much but the minimal hospitality offered by any travel operator. I also found Sumit, another you might want to keep.
I will be sure to recommend Tirun to others.
Thanks to you and your team, we look forward to a stress free and memorable trip.

Harmony of the Seas review: By Ratna Chadha
The debut sailing of the ship from Southampton was good as expected.
We did not have a problem with anything on board. Sure we couldn't enjoy the slides and other outdoor activities because of the weather conditions, but there were many other things to experience.
The ship was fabulous, given the innovations at that scale, the arrangements were perfect. Personally didn't experience any of the issues people have discussed in their reviews of late. The ship was as ready for a cruise as any other ship of Royal Caribbean
My friends & I enjoyed our time on the ship; the food was outstanding, and the service was great. There was enough for people of all age groups to do on the ship and stay engaged for 2Nights.

Cruising with TRAVELSA
Musings of an Elsa, Binu Mullick, (English Honours, Batch of 1977)
It only needed a decisive spouse to make up the mind of a wavering Elsa, to jump on board the first TRAVELSA trip !! There was no stopping us!
For Deepak and me this was our first ever cruise, the luxury liner Royal Caribbean's Voyager of the Seas, sailing from Singapore -Kuala Lumpur-Phuket -Singapore was such a treat, five days of non stop action, activity and party!
The much needed break, I had for a month been working as full time housekeeper and cook (in my own house!) Bought some new clothes, casual and formal, a new cabin bag and there we were on board!
I took part in all activities!! Dancing, swimming, spa treatments, EATING and DRINKING, and of course shopping at the Royal Promenade!
The entertainment was awesome, the Broadway Shows and Musical nights absolutely superb, also thrown in was a Bollywood night.......
Thanks Vandana for initiating me, though missed you, but sure carried the ELSA flag!

My "WOW" Experience from 04th March-2015 to 07th March-2015 for "3-Nights Malaysia Explorer" with "Mariner of the Seas" from Singapore was Fantastic! As it was our first international trip and that too on Cruise, I was very excited. Safety drill ensured us all that we were in safe hands & going to have a safe journey. It was really like Dream Came true & has become a lifetime memory for us.
Everything including our stateroom with balcony, Crew-Staff & Management at Mariner Of The Seas, Entertainment activities, the hospitality services, quick Information availability on next minute activities, amenities, adventure activities, the ambience, Swimming pools, along with dazzling view of Sunset & Sunrise while on cruise ship, DreamWorks Character's Show, different visitors across the globe, and last but not the least - A Grand farewell from Crew & Their staff etc. was just amazing!
I didn't miss a single moment & enjoyed every minute on the Cruise & Most of the time I was tempted to say "WOW". I would call it "Floating Paradise in Ocean" & would love to rate it 10/10.
People say "Love is in the Air" but with a WOW I'd say "Love is in the Ocean too"

The cruise was wonderful, just fantastic.....there are no words to express. The staff - from the Captain to the cleaning people, co-passengers were so nice, and there were few Malayalis in the staff, too. Before booking , we thought 12 days cruise will be too much, but it was the opposite. We both felt very sad leaving the ship when the cruise was over. The food on board was out of this world and we both gained weight! Thanks for all your help, and making our vacation a memorable one.

We took the 7-day Scandinavia & Russia cruise from Copenhagen this year. It was absolutely wonderful. There were so many WOW moments that I don't know what to name! The entertainment (the cruise director was great), the shore excursions very well-planned given the time constraints, the live music and the fun-atmosphere at the pool side , the service - WOW! and last but not least (at the risk of being labeled a glutton) the amazing buffets at the Windjammer-WOW! Still haven't managed to shed the pounds we put on.

We have just completed our Bahamas cruise and the entire trip was excellent. Full marks! The food, attitude & friendliness of the cruise were significant and praiseworthy. High standard of etiquette. All programmes were designed meticulously to guests satisfaction. Indian waiters (mostly from Goa) were very helpful & cooperative.
To be precise, we enjoyed the trip and it is unforgettable one. Thank you very much for all your help and support. The message may be conveyed to Royal Caribbean.

We had a most wonderful cruise thanks to your great arrangements. Highlights were that we had a table at dinner for 15 of our family group and a great personalised service with good vegetarian food which we were ordering on daily menu basis. The junior suites were very spacious and I would recommend such a cruise to all my friends.
