Spa = we had our own cubical very nice and private , showers are less nice not private open, Towel hire available and shower cap and gown and flip flops. Food is buffet hot or cold sandwiches . No cash !!! Only card to pay. Lockers available. Cruise = buffet , drinks included beer wine soft drinks, live music was lovely. Views on the ship amazing. 6.30pm cruise is perfect. Be aware you start at a hotel and have a 10-15 min walk not good for anyone with walking difficulties ! Toilets ok around 5 for men and women.

Good experence

Overall experience of the cruise and the thermal bath was quite good. Still I have not given excellent rating because of one problem that we (myself and my wife) faced. We were asked to meett a point at 6.30 PM for the 7 PM cruise. We were slightly late and hence decided to reach directly on the river bank from where all the cruise start. We made two full round of the bank from one end to other , asked many cruise employees but failed to reach to the correct cruise. There is no clear sign board to help locate.

Extraordinary Experience!

The baths are amazing, so many options. Go earlier in the morning because it gets crowded in the afternoon. The cruise location was easy to find to follow the guides to the boat. On the boat, the tables are elegant and it was fun to meet other people from around the world. Good live music. A wonderful day!
