The ship docked in Amsterdam

Before the cruise, whenever we called, the people were always friendly and helpful.

We told them we're staying an extra 3 nights in Zurich, but they couldn't take us to the hotel because it's wasn't a partner hotel, which is fair enough. But they also couldn't take us to a partner hotel and let us walk to our hotel. They also wouldn't take us to the Zurich airport unless we had a flight AND we gave them the flight number, but they wouldn't accept a flight number 3 days after the end of the cruise.

And they wouldn't finish the booking until we told them the exact way we were leaving the ship in Basel. When I said we'd take a train, she wanted the exact information: date and time, train number, car number, and platform number. So we booked our own train from Basel to Zurich.
