We really enjoyed our trip. The transfers picked us up from our hotel on time and dropped us off after the trip. The cruise was relaxing and the food fabulous. Overall the service was really good. We were a family with 5 kids 8 to 18 and would recommend this cruise for a family wanting to treat themselves.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2015

A great evening with excellent food, drinks and service. This night for us was pouring rain but it did not effect us at all,. You get to see the city from a different view and the staff on the cruise were great. If you want a laid back evening with great and plentiful food, great views, excellent staff then try this one.
