Lovely cruise. Seated on top deck open air tables not crowded. Platters and drinks table service. Background music. Only criticism would be that the tour guide spoke for too long and quite a few derogatory remarks towards Japanese when talking of the history of WW2. I felt embarrassed for a lovely young couple that were holidaying. Talk went on too long. I believe other guests felt the same. It was sold as a sunset cruise not a war history lesson.

The cruise was absolutely beautiful, the sunset was magic. We were given some misinformation when we boarded though, being told to go & search for our names on a table. Ours wasn't there, as only customers who pre-ordered platters had their names on tables, so that was a little confusing. We ordered prawns onboard which were delicious, and joined another couple of fellow travelers and thoroughly enjoyed our night

It was great to relax for a couple of hours on the top deck & see the coastline from a different aspect. Sunset was spectacular! The food was good & after sunset the lights on shore were a beautiful disolay. Highly recommend a sunset cruise to any visitors in the top end.
