    Very easy to find, the dock is directly opposite the Marriott hotel. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and the boat was clean, warm and had a bar. The boat also has nice big clean toilets. I wouldn't say it's disabled friendly as there a lots of steps up and down across other boats to get to this one. The audio guide which is included is very informative and easy to understand.

    The cruise itself was great value for money, 70 minutes long with an optional stop-off at Margaret Island, decent commentary in a variety of languages and a free glass of alcohol and lemonade. Only downsides were that they had the heating on for the entire duration of the cruise, and everyone was having to fan themselves from how hot and stuffy it was! There also wasn’t enough clear signposting for how to get on the outside deck in my opinion!

    Good experience, got to see a lot of sights however I found the audio a bit hard to understand so missed a bit. You also only get the one drink and you cannot purchase anymore so I was left with a horrible tasting sparkling wine that I couldn't even drink.
