View From The Grandpa: Cattleya Cruise
After already traveling to the Galapagos and Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador with Rainforest Cruises, return customer Charlie Walters returned to South America for another adventure, this time to Peru and an Amazon cruise aboard the Cattleya, again accompanied by his many grandchildren. Here is what he had to say about their trip:
"Hola, mi amigo,
We're back...well..."most" of us are back. My 21 year-old granddaughter, Miranda, loved our trip and Peru so much that she refused to come home with us. Our family adventure was amazingly better than any of us expected (especially Miranda).
Jesus and his crew were magnificent. If I'd personally interviewed every citizen in Peru, with the authority to hire anyone I wanted, I'm convinced that we'd have still ended up with the same people on board. I have already added Jesus to the "Family members" section of my email address book.
We were all treated like Royalty and loved it. I seriously thought you were "puffing" when you wrote about the food on the Cattleya being "to die for" but I was pleased to discover that you weren't. I'd have been satisfied with bologna and cheese sandwiches three times a day but the meals on the Cattleya were more like what you'd expect in a five-star hotel in Paris.
You and your team did a great job and I appreciate your professionalism and attention to detail.
Charlie aka Peepaw "
