Absolutely amazing thank you for the best New Years ever.

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.

The whole experience was excellent and we really enjoyed it, however the only thing we felt was lacking was a build up to the fireworks. It would have been really good to have someone on deck to inform the passengers of the impending fireworks to build a little bit more of an atmosphere. We felt that the fireworks just happened and noted that many people missed the beginning as had not realised the time. Other than that a great experience. Thank you!
