It was not entertaining enough, the boat was not suitably decorated for New Year's Eve. During the trip it was very boring, no activity and no nice music. Only after midnight did a person come for a dance for around 3pm. Min. The lights were barely visible, very far. The price is very high for these services. There was no tour. The food was good.

Very disappointed not this boat trip

I really do not recommend this activity for 1000 € you will certainly find better to do, not enough meals for all the passengers, the position of the boat to see the lights was catastrophic
