It was nice :-)

Transfer worked great. In the boat we sat on the upper deck and not air-conditioned in the lower deck. That was pleasant even in midsummer and the view is even more beautiful. The buffet was great, it wasn't a 4-star menu, but good and something for everyone, and also sufficient ;-) The dance was just as nice. Tables and chairs were a bit "ridden down", but we looked over them ;-) All in all, a nice, successful evening for a fair price :-)

1. Food and entertainment was very good. 2. Initial interaction with the staff was not welcoming, but improved as the evening progressed. 3. It was unclear how guests choose upstairs or downstairs. 4. Driver could be more interactive.
