Worst boat cruise I have been to! The food was horrible it was a buffet but they insisted on serving the meat for us as if we wouldn't be able to serve ourselves. The music was horrible at some point I wished they could just turn it off. The actual boat ride was very smooth and nice but otherwise it's not worth the R495 that we paid .Our table of 18 people had 3 platters to share! This was after they said that it is a buffet of scrumptious food. The tools were dry hard and cold!!!

They respect time, they started on time and the cruise was surely 2 hours long. The welcome drinks were available in alcoholic and non-alcoholic, of which we ended up enjoying the most. The waiters are constantly moving around making ordering easy. If you explain that your boarding is for a special occasion, they make it beautiful according to the occasion. The food was indeed a three course meal of a buffet type- hence no variety on the starter and dessert. We enjoyed the scenic views, seeing the beautiful houses along the route and admiring other people engaging in water sports. We had a lot of fun, it was memorable.
