Didn't think it was that great not very informative not really disable friendly.We had done a river cruise at Matakana the weekend before and thought it was lovely and very informative locally.but the Hamilton Cruise was quite boring think it was the direction very unappealing.perhaps going the opposite way might have been better.We had visitors from Japan with us and they felt the same way.

Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to review your recent cruise experience with us. Not sure what more we can do to make our vessels more disabled friendly ... Not sure also how we could have made our commentary more 'informative' either as we describe everything you see from century-old bridges, the story of the hydro system, birds, fish, art installations in the city.
