Wedding and Honeymoon Planning

Well, that was a pretty interesting week...

I had been starting to get a little concerned that the emails I was sending to the Travel Agency in Greece were not being responded to. Very odd, considering that I was offering them money (the balance that I owed them).

On Tuesday night (Sydney time) I dialled the twelve digit number, armed with my trusty English-Greek dictionary. The following is a transcription of what was said...

"Hello, do you speak English?" (said in Greek)
"I have booked a cruise with you for..."
"Not with me, you will have to speak with Miss X. Hold on please"
I waited for two minutes, then the line dropped.
"F*ck it" and I redialled.
"Hello, I spoke with you a moment ago. May I speak with Miss X, please?"
"One moment"
This time I got through...
"Hello, Miss X"
"Hello, I have a cruise booked with you: the High Plains Drifter"
"Did you not receive our email? The cruise has been cancelled."
"No I didn't."
"OK, I don't have your file now but I will resend you the email."
-- hangs up --
Needless to say, I did not receive an email - so I will let these guys sort it out, or at least my Credit Card company.
So now, I was left without a honeymoon and a potentially pissed off wife-to-be (though she would never admit to it).
After some frantic decision making we have settled on Singapore as our honeymoon.
First port of call, is two nights in the Raffles Plaza
Then five nights on a cruise...
Then back to Raffles for a night before returning home.
