We were celebrating our dad’s 96 birthday. The staff made it very special from the greeting at the ticket window and his Happy Birthday greeting printed on the ticket all the way through the entire trip. It truly couldn’t have been more perfect. Let me add that I rarely provide feedback on anything, but this was such a wonderful experience I had to!! Thank you to everyone for giving dad an amazing 96 birthday celebration!
