Lovely tea experience! You get tons of tea choices, a glass of rose and a tower of sandwiches, quiches, rolls and desserts. The views were lovely and it was a very enjoyable experience. I did this solo and still had a wonderful time taking in the views! It circles around two areas, stops to let some people off and then heads back to where you got on.

The overall experience was great, the staff were friendly, professional and very accomodating. The food was delicious and there was a great selection. Our seating was fantastic, the views were spectacular and we were right by the window. The only downfall was that the music playing was not suitable for the occasion, there were many songs that were very loud, involved swearing, derogatory verses and words and were just not what you would expect or want to hear during a civilised high tea, nor what I wanted my 50+ year old mother to be hearing on an outing celebrating her birthday.

Food was great, although the warm food could have been warmer. The cruise was nice but we spent quite some time sitting at a dock, which was wasted time so in reality the cruise time was not what was advertised. Would I do it again - Maybe. Would I recommend it - yes.
