I bought 3 Brunch Cruise Tickets for the Spirit of Brunch…

Customer Question
I bought 3 Brunch...

I bought 3 Brunch Cruise Tickets for the Spirit of Washington Brunch Cruise scheduled for 9/23/17. One friend got sick and had to cancel. The Cruise Ship gave me a credit of $70.37. We were only able to spend $30.00 of that credit. I've been given the runaround for the balance which is $40.37. Today I was told that I would have to take this as a $40.37 loss. Is there anything that can be done?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And when did the issue begin?

This is in Washington, DC and the issue began on September 23, 2017

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you contacted the manufacturer?

I contacted the Spirit of Washington Cruise Ship on September 19th about the cancellation of 1 person. I was told that their tickets are non refundable. At that time, I was issued a $70.37 credit. I was only able to use $30.00 of that credit which left me with a balance of $40.37. In my final connection to day with the Spirit of Washington Cruise Ship, I was told that I have to take the $40.37 as a lost.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
