I took my 86 year mum on the afternoon tea cruise, from start to finish the crew did so much to help her enjoy her day, we were able to leave her wheelchair at the office and thee crew helped her on board. The food was exceptional and there was plenty to eat, all neatly presented. The cruise was very scenic and totally relaxing. When we returned back to the quay, heer wheelchair was waiting for her and again the crew were exceptional and very caring, it was the best experience we've had from start to finish and will recommend it to everyone.
