A lovely time! Food was great and staff was very attentive. I brought my grandmother who was in a wheelchair, but forgot to mark it during the booking. The staff was so helpful and accommodating. Loved the narrated tour of the naval base. Will absolutely be back!

The narration of the tour was nice especially during lunch. The crew was very friendly. However the bartenders were overwhelmed and our drinks did not come until after we finished lunch. Having a waitress made no difference. Even though she was friendly she was not effective. The passengers and ipper deck made it memorable. The food was so so except for the chicken. It was delicious.
