I had a booking for 4 people and my friends missed the cruise by just a minute. The manager of the cruise was very kind to let them ride the following cruise. +1 for their kindness. The cruise itself (Ambience, Music and champagne) was very elegant. Definitely recommend.

The cruise was lovely and the staff was friendly and accommodating to my requests. I would recommend the cruise for a lovely evening out with fantastic views of a beautiful city with fabulous ambience.

Everything smoothly and as described. It's worth being there much earlier if you care about specific places. I recommend.

It was a really nice experience. The night view of the parliament especially amazing.

Everything was punctual, efficient, we made the trip after sunset - it was wonderful
