Thank you for your positive feedback on the service. We will certainly pass this onto our staff.

Once again, thank you for your feedback.

Kind Regards,

The lunch and cruise were very nice, but I wish there had been commentary describing the sights along the way. We did go up on the top deck and there was a commentary being broadcast, but the volume was so low you could not hear it. Knowing where we were and what we were seeing would have made this trip perfect.

Service: My wife said that the ladies toilets were dirty, urine was on the toilet seats and around the floor. She was quite disgusted, I thought she was joking at first , but she was not. Not sure if she would go on your cruises again !!!!
Product: Seemed quite expensive for a long lunch trip

Response from Captain Cook Cruises: Dear Customer,

Thank you so much for your comments regarding your Valentines Day Long Lunch Cruise. We have already corresponded via email. However, as we stated, we are very sorry to hear that the toilets were not clean. We have a cleaning program in place where the toilets are cleaned throughout the cruise. Please accept our apologies for what appears to have been a breakdown of process on the day not a genuine lack of care for our customers. Rest assured we have passed on your comments to our cleaning team and appreciate the opportunity you have given us to improve. 

Once again thank you for your feedback.

Kind Regards,
