Additional Notes

Complaint: I paid for an upgrade to an already booked cruise reservation. I had numerous discussions with ******, the owner, when arranging this upgrade. She told me the upgrade would be for a cabin with a balcony and sofa for our third person to sleep on as all of us were over 50 and NOT able to climb into an overhead "bunk". I made MANY phone calls to ****** upon our cruise return, as we did not get a room with the sofa for the third person. She avoided my calls and did not return them. When she did call me back she was very curt and crisp and not in the least bit interested in discussing my issue with me. Her other staff members were un-knowledgeable and therefore not helpful at all. This "bunk" situation on the cruises caused tremendous hardship, as one of us had to climb into the bunk. None of us is physically able to do this easily. It was extremely difficult and placed a significant damper on our trip. My last conversation with ****** ended with her saying she would research it and get back to me. That was months ago.....and I am still waiting for her return call. I need others to be aware of ******'s business style and utilize her services on a "buyer beware" basis as she "forgets" what she has told you and does not honor any mistakes that she has made. PLUS she makes not apology for her curt/crisp business style. I need an appropriate apology from her and a nominal good faith gesture.

Desired Settlement: I need an apology from her and a nominal good faith gesture, such as a complimentary service for all parties on an upcoming cruise I have booked with someone else.

Business Response: Reply to Complaint #********
*****:  I am sincerely sorry if I was sharp and rude to you over the phone.  I only remember talking to you once right after the cruise.  Did my
receptionist take the other calls?   
When you called me about changing rooms, we talked both mini suites and balcony room to accommodate 3.  I do know that the mini suites had the soda bed for the 3rd person.  They were most expensive. We talked about that.  If the balcony was suppose to have a sofa, I would of checked the room out with ******** reservations before I sold it to you.  Most of all I remember that you want more space and the windows.   I can't go back to all our conversions, but I never sell something without checking with vendor that they have the room my client requested. 
I am sorry for the rudeness and not getting back to you.  I am not sure where you are getting the $200.00.  I would be happy to offer you a $250.00 travel voucher that would be valid only with Rocky Mountain Travel King for future travel.  This voucher has no cash value.  It would be valid through September 2015.  
In the travel industry, when passengers are unhappy, the Vendor(******** or any tour operating will give a future credit voucher that can be applied to another trip or cruise( excluding airfare). 
Just this Christmas, I had clients that thought there condo in Hawaii was
below standards,  there was no condo to change them too.  All I could get the tour company to do was give $50.00 travel vouchers for the four people.

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me.   I would like the voucher placed in three names where any of the three names could use it, as there were three of us that experienced the inconvenience.  The names to be included on the voucher are:
1. **** ********
2. ***** ********
3. *** ********
And again any of us could utilize it.

Thank you for your assistance.
