Nous sommes français et nous avons énormément apprécié l’efficacité et la gentillesse du personnel.

A wonderful way to see in the new year 19/20. Food and beverages top notch. Staff absolutely delightful. The only grievance was not being able to see the final bit of the fireworks owing to the taller boat ahead of us moving around and at the end totally blocked out the view. We were on a boat 5 years ago and this did not happen then. Otherwise, you give your passengers a fantastic overall new year's eve experience and couldn't be bettered we're sure.

Thank you for the wonderful cruise experience of NYE! Customers onboard all seem to have had a great night. Staff onboard were friendly, pleasant and danced with the customers. 10 out of 10!

We chose the cruise as it had been recommended. Except for the rain at the beginning of the evening we had a wonderful time. It was a fabulous experience and we also met international visitors. We would recommend this cruise to others. Thank you.

My family and I had a wonderful evening, the view of the fireworks and the surroundings was spectacular. The staff were extremely attentive and professional at all times. They took great care from the moment we boarded right up until the moment we left and always with a smile. We take this opportunity to thank you for making our NYE memorable.
