Service: We couldn't fault the service
I brought my sister along on the cruise to experience a bit more of your beautiful harbour
It was her 1st holiday away from her little country town in S.A. in 64yrs and she was blown away.
We appreciated the table for 2 by the window ( Thankyou )and enjoyed the company of the other people around us.Our waitress was superb and very attentive.The whole event appeared to be well organised an ran very efficiently. We were made to feel very welcome.
Product: I purchased our tickets from interstate without any issues.
