We went on the 2 day 1 night cruise departing 11th Feb. Our cruise director Dan The Man made the entire experience perfect from start to finish. Informative guide , knowledgeable, great English with good sense of humour. Thank you Dan for your excellent service!. The food was also delicious with wait staff also very helpful. Great itinerary but probably do 2 night 3 day instead

WasnÕt sure to do the 2 nights but ended up saying what the heck and booked. Wow wow wow. So glad went for the 2 nights. Amazing staff, service and food, unbelievable. And lots of food. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Boys didnÕt get bored. Games on board to do if need something extra. Luckily also had amazing other guests. Dan the Man is very delightful. Knowable helpful friendly nothing to much trouble. Kids loved him. Trips, tours and kayaking great. Unfortunately not warm enough for a swim but didnÕt matter. Views amazing.
