The trip was amazing and very well worth the money. Had a brilliant time, the silver boat was great with the top viewing deck to see the New Year's fireworks and the food was fantastic. The only thing that could have been approved on was having more chairs for dinner and then putting them away after as the food was not really finger fork food, you had to sit down to eat it. Apart from that it was brilliant, thanks had a great night.
