Hola Gabriela!

Qué bueno que tenemos la oportunidad de comentar nuestro viaje.

De verdad que fue un viaje maravilloso. El barco y todo su personal superaron nuestras expectativas. Cada excursión fue una experiencia inolvidable organizada con mucha eficiencia. La comida, inesperadamente deliciosa! La cabina comodísima y con todo lo necesario.

Estamos muy contentas de haber viajado en el Isabela II en ese itinerario. 

Gracias por toda tu ayuda.

Hi Veronica,

just wanted to thank-you again for your help earlier. We had a great time and were very appreciative of the chance to have gone on the cruise after all. We were even surprised there were a couple of extra berths!

Kind regards,
