Good food and service staff were excellent
, Dec 2021
Food and staffs are excellent, except for the music and dancing. As per ad, there will be live band providing the music, instead it was a DJ. And the dancing started just over an hour before berthing!!!
Very nice staff, fun DJ...

Very nice staff, fun DJ and tasty food! However, the boat was very cold. We could never warm up from the long wait in the cold to board the boat. Average experience.

The staff was great, very attentive to their guests. The food was delightful and hot. The view was outstanding. The music was wonderful we danced til we couldn’t dance anymore. There was three levels to the Cruise-ship and was beautiful. Would definitely come again.

Tour operators do not provide refund to cancel. The cancellation policy is written in a confusing way to trick people into buying it.
