Beautiful journey

I would highly recommend this little evening trip! As soon as you get on board you get a free complimentary drink and then you can wonder around the ship or go and sit down and listen to the band. The boat is amazing, you can go into the engine room or outside on the deck and see the captain sailing the ship! This is definitely fantastic value for money and something nice to do before you go for dinner in town.
