This cruise was awesome. Service was second to none for the entire day. Captain Soren talked through the history of the river. The team at the winery gave a great history of the local wines. The wines and food were fabulous. Could not have asked for more. Met some great new friends. The trip back was a whole new adventure, with wines and just brilliant singing from the 3 crew members. What voices!!! What a great way to spend the last day of 2022. Great day out. Recommend to anyone.
