Awful service and dodgy billing. The entertainment was below average and they only had a band. The cruise was boring. We paid a fair bit for this through our tour organisers (in USD!). We wish we saved our money and time!

If you go there, you should go there for having so much. Fun. Food is normal not so good not bad. Staff don't really care about anything but money 😄 however I would still go for the sake of entertainment

This was a fun outing. The performers interacted, the service was good. Food wasn't great, we had the grilled seafood platter and the chicken kabob. We didn't go for the food... only thing i'd say to watch out for are the drink prices over $30USD....More
