"I just wanted to drop you a line reference the above call.  The performance of your team, led by Paul was outstanding.  Cages were organised and sorted quayside, loaded as requested and up to the decks quickly.  As you know, we frequently have passports packed in bags which can take 90mins - 2 hours to find, last Friday, 20 mins max due to the organisation quayside. We didn't achieve the early sailing (departed 1610) but this was due to the passenger communication and all in all, it was a pretty successful day.

Please pass on my congratulations and thanks to Paul and all the team. Top job!"
