I wanted to let you know we had an amazing time on our cruise, I cannot say enough good things! The room and boat were beautiful, the food was amazing and the staff was outstanding. We did the 2 night 3 day cruise, and I wish was that we had gone longer. What an amazing experience

Amazing trip on a fabulous boat. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was amazing and extremely fresh. We stayed for New Year also and the display of food and activities was brilliant. I really enjoyed the additional activities also e.g. swimming, kayaking, cave visits, fishing farm.

Bottled water should be supplied more frequently during the day rather than having to purchase from the bar. The price should cover this.
