    I went with my wife and 4 kids (ages 3-12) and we had a great day. The food was great but you had to get in early before they shut service.

An amazing experience from start to finish. Loved the boat - comfortable and stylish. Free to roam after orders had been taken, although we chose to stay on our own deck as everything we needed was there. Lovely meal and very available service staff. The chef came to meet us at the end and ask for feedback on how he could make the food better. Chatted to the captain and wait staff for quite a while. All very friendly and professional. A great price for a great day!

I went with my wife and 4 kids (ages 3-12) and we had a great day. The food was great but you had to get in early before they shut service.
