Dear Dave,

Last month, we returned from 2+ weeks in Europe on a whirlwind trip.  Thanks to all of the travel agents who make these kinds of dreams come true for their clients.

After 7 countries, our first river cruise (Danube), countless churches, palaces, castles; and about 5000 photos, we left knowing that we had done and seen exactly what we wanted!.   

Every agent asks which cruise line we were on, and it was Emerald (Sun).  We'd definitely sale with them again in the future.

We are definitely thankful for the ability and opportunity to travel and explore (with the help of our trusty travel agent).

Thank You for all you do and Happy Selling!
Dave Emery
