Excellent evening, the entertainment was fantastic, he sang lots of Frank Sinatra, dean martin, Sammy Davies etc and if you would like a request he would play songs for you, the staff on the boat could not be more accommodating, helpful and extremely friendly 10 out of 10 for the whole experience.

I chose this event as a gift for my sister in law’s 90 birthday - she loves the music of the rat pack and we were not disappointed. Special thanks to Russell - you were amazing. A fabulous night- brilliant atmosphere. Looking forward to booking another trip. ❤️
