Lovely boat and great crew. We had mushroom risotto, no taste & gluggy, Markel fish and potato gratin, fish was bland zero flavour and the potato tastes sour/off like it was well past its use by date. Staff dealt with issues wonderfully and got others sent out. We were on honeymoon and they set up a lovely table upstairs with balloons and confetti. Onboard drink prices were great. An overall lovely cruise with a fantastic crew

The food was fantastic, it was executed very well. Would have been helpful if there was more signs/directions of where the meeting place was as it wasn’t where the description had said but instead on the pier itself. It was a shame we didn’t get to see any sunsets but that’s not the tours fault at all. Lovely one time experience
