"Excellent crossing and passenger service"
I travelled to Jersey on 28th October on a business trip and was travelling alone. I'd booked an Ocean Club seat so that I could work during the sailing and was allocated a window seat, without requesting one, which was a bonus. It was a beautiful crossing and the staff were very attentive and friendly, serving complimentary morning tea, coffee and croissants immediately we were seated. However, I found my seat, immediately opposite the galley area, very noisy, especially when crew members from other parts of the ship congregated in the galley to chat with our 2 crew members and it distracted me from my work so I asked at the information desk if I could pre-book a different seat for my return trip on the Sunday. I was told seats were allocated 24 hours beforehand and I would need to contact Customer Services by phone, which I did, as soon as I received an email confirming my return crossing and allocating my seat in the same position - opposite the galley. The person I spoke to at Customer Services told me it wasn't possible to change a seat once allocated and that I would have to speak to the crew on board on the day. As this differed from the information I was given onboard on my outward journey, I persisted, and the customer service adviser spoke to his team manager, who agreed to make an exception, and move my seat further forward from the galley area. I was very grateful for this human touch and for making an exception and had a very good seat on the return sailing which was quiet and peaceful and enabled me to work without distractions. I'd definitely travel with the Condor Liberation again, and use the Ocean Club seats but would recommend seats forward of the galley area. The crew were extremely professional, efficient and courteous, the sailing was smooth and punctual and all facilities were of a high standard of cleanliness
