Dear Sir / Madam,

I am writing to you regarding my recent cruise with your company, Falcon Cruise Line, which
departed from Belize on July 1st. I have traveled on several cruise lines, and Falcon Cruise Line
has been by far the worst experience I have ever had on a cruise. I am hoping that you can offer
some form of redress for the terrible journey I took on your ship.

There were several problems on the cruise ship. Specifically, our room was not cleaned
appropriately and our attendant, Joe, did not answer our repeated requests for extra towels. This
was doubly frustrating as other employees on the ship kept telling us that we could only get our
towels from Joe.

Shore ventures were also problematic on your cruise line. The boats taking passengers to the
shore were repeatedly late, which meant that we did not get to spend as much time on shore as
the brochures claimed. As shore visits were the main draw for my family, this left us very
disappointed with the cruise overall.

Most importantly, I believe we were wrongfully charged for food. Most cruise ships, as you
know, include unlimited amounts of food. Your ship charged us hidden fees we did not find out
about until we left the ship. These "fine print" charges were outrageous, and included a bottle of
water for $4 as well as an extra serving of ham for $7. The total extra amount we were charged
was $475. Had we known about these charges, we never would have accepted these items.

I request that you remedy this situation immediately. I believe that in the very least a refund for
the unexpected charges would be appropriate. I am prepared to seek legal counsel if you do not
contact me within the next two weeks regarding these charges. I look forward to hearing your
response Thanks for taking time of reading my letter.

Sincerely,

Anthony Orellana
