When Vacations to Go advertised a 12 night Greek Island cruise with Celebrity Cruise Lines,
we decided that this would be a good way to see the Greek islands that we have been
hearing about all these years. We therefore ordered the cruise through Vacations-to-Go in
the USA. We also bought four land excursions and trip cancellation insurance through them.|
