Customer Reviews

Please ensure that you check your emails on the day as the pier for embarkation was changed and we only found out by talking to others who had booked on the cruise - we hadn't checked our emails! The cruise was most enjoyable and the dinner was good. Thank goodness it wasn't a "self serve" buffet or it would have been chaos. You have to queue for dinner and the food is plated by a crew member. Dessert was self service - a choice of 2. So, choose your dessert early on, as the one your prefer might be finished by the time you get around to it. There was music and a small dance floor. Everyone seemed to be having fun.

Fun cruise with a great crew, awesome way to see vivid by the water
Amanda P. · 30 May 2017
All phone & email enquiries were answered promptly. There were follow-up emails to ensure that we were made well aware of the change of wharf for departure, advise re arrival time due to the very busy special event (Vivid),& advise on safety precautions on board (prams & big packpacks).
