I booked a cruise with Direct Line Cruises (DLC) which started in Europe and disembarked in India. I booked the cruise by telephone using their agent, Barbara Gronowski.

I booked a cruise with Direct Line Cruises (DLC) which started in Europe and disembarked in India. I booked the cruise by telephone using their agent, Barbara Gronowski. After booking the cruise, I had been in constant contact with Barbara telephonically as well as by e-mail to find out the requirements for my cruise. Barbara failed to let me know that I needed a travel visa for India and as a result my husband and I had to disembark the ship in the Middle East. We lost several days of cruising which we had paid for in advance and in addition had to buy new airline tickets from Dubai to the US. DLC failed as a travel agency on two accounts. According to the US Department of Labor, one of the job functions of a travel agent is to make the client aware of the visa requirements for a travel itinerary. I have written to DLC about this. The response I received was that I signed an acknowledgement package that stated that it is my responsibility to determine, obtain and provide all necessary documentation. I did sign the acknowledge form and tried to determine from my travel agent, Barbara Gronowski what paperwork was necessary. I do not understand how else I am supposed to determine requirements other than through my travel agent. Unlike DLC, I am not a licensed professional in the travel agency industry. DLC did get payment for services rendered as a travel agency but did not perform the duties of a travel agency. The second way in which they failed was in not providing me with assistance in returning home from the middle east. When I found out that my husband and I had to disembark early I e-mailed Barbara several times requesting assistance in booking flights back. I received an apology e-mail back for the inconvenience but no assistance. Again, the US Department of Labor defines a travel agency as providing assistance to clients if they become stranded.The poor quality of service provided by DLC had ruined our vacation, caused a huge emotional and financial burden to my husband and I.

PeopleClaim.com is a member-supported online dispute resolution system designed
to settle most common disputes quickly and efficiently—without mediation, arbitration,
or litigation. We provide a secure, confidential negotiation channel where both
sides can review facts, communicate with each other, propose terms, make counter-offers,
and reach resolution. Both parties control their side of the process and avoid the
uncertain outcome and costliness of legal action. PeopleClaim.com is a facilitating
channel: we take neither side in disputes and do not involve ourselves in any aspect
of negotiation between parties. We are supported by member dues and non-member use
fees, rather than sponsorship or advertising.
There are four steps to the PeopleClaim system: 1) Stating your complaint; 2) Making
a claim; 3) Negotiating Terms; 4) Settlement. We help you at every step of the process,
providing smart features that make your case understandable and actionable. A clear
statement of your complaint allows the other party to identify you and your problem,
and respond in an appropriate and timely way. Transforming your complaint into a
claim means establishing terms of settlement that can be acted on by the other party.
We help you organize and present your terms to encourage response and action. PeopleClaim’s
secure online channel lets you and the other party negotiate terms in confidence.
Our automated email system tracks progress, advising both sides of changes in terms,
revised offers, and any other claim-related activity. This helps the negotiation
proceed smoothly with minimum time slippage. Settlement occurs when either side
accepts an offer. Generally speaking, when executed by both sides, the PeopleClaim
online Agreement is considered a legally binding contract.
Remember, we provide a channel and structure but we stay out of your business. The
substance and outcome of your claim is entirely up to you and the other party.
There are many possibilities. We designed PeopleClaim to be affordable enough to
be used for common consumer complaints, but powerful enough to handle larger disputes.
Disagreements with retailers, product defects, and poor service of all kinds are
common claim types. But you could also use PeopleClaim to deal with problems between
individuals, or to register a complaint in a public advocacy cause. The mechanism
of stating a complaint and filing a claim is applicable to a wide variety of situations,
and we expect claimants will be inventive in their use of the system. Naturally,
in complex and large-stakes matters, or where a party is looking to establish legal
precedent, there is no substitute for professional counsel. If you think your problem
may be too big or too difficult to resolve via one-to-one online negotiation, or
have any doubts about PeopleClaim’s applicability, you should ask a lawyer.
Learn how to avoid problems and resolve disputes with businesses and professionals.
