The ship maybe a little older, but it has everything you could want. Excellent service, excellent food (and plenty) and a very comprehensive cruise of our Harbour. Loved it.

We had 25 girls for a Hen's night on board. The staff were friendly and everyone had a great time.

However, on the flip side, the dessert was very minimalist and ordinary, the tea and coffee was ordinary. The entertainment was very amateur and too short. The cruise advertises, a Majestic show from all over the world. From the build up, one expected a more professional entertainment segment and for a lot longer. 15-20 minutes show was not value for money.

The DJ music was a tad too loud mainly because the sound system was muffled.

Overall, everyone had a good time; however, I do not believe that most of our party would book another one of these cruises.

Dear Whatever75,

Thank you for your review of Vagabond Cruises and we are pleased to hear that everyone had a great time during your cruise!

We have taken on board feedback regarding the tea and coffee served on our cruises and have added several brands and options recently to improve this aspect of the cruise, including herbal, green and chamomile teas to our menus.

Thank you for your comments on the show and I am sorry to hear that you did not rate the show as highly as others do. The dance show intro lasts for around 10 - 15 minutes but the actual show and audience participation falls just short of one hour.

I shall certainly pass on your feedback regarding the DJ and sound system as this is not something that we are familiar with. We regularly try and test our system before each cruise and have many speakers and amplifiers set up to ensure the best sound quality.

Once again, thank you for your review of our product and we hope to have the pleasure of serving you again in the future.

You get what you pay for: this is not a luxury vessel. But for a reasonable price you get a lot. We got a brilliant buffet, we had 20 in our group and everyone could find something they liked.
Staff were friendly and full of life. The show was engaging and entertaining. Bar options are sufficient. Toilets on board were surprisingly pleasant. The boat is dated, but it didn't bother us. We were happy with the easy going attitude and the DJ playing some scout hall classics. Overall the night is made by how flexible you are and the company you are with.
