Had a super fun time! Staff was great and the food was much better than expected. Singer was very good and added a nice touch. Only comment … They were a bit disorganized welcoming people at the beginning. Better to not let people board and have them wait on shore until someone is available to greet them.

Tour was very good and it was well informed on the ship. Unfortunately, there was no protection on the ship from the enormous solar radiation on deck. However, there was an air-conditioned lounge area on board below deck, which was a good offer from the shipping company.

Boat cruise was great no complaints. Very relaxing and would definitely book again!

Very informative and in-depth history of the city on this tour.

Excellent. comfortable, mismerizing... recommended !
