  • The food was a bit mediocre Not the easiest of meats to eat in a hurry, would have much preferred to see a sliced meat option to go with what was on offer Dessert too was disappointing - needed cream or ice cream to finish it off. Finally, it would have been great to have hot and cold drinks served at the table, as we ran out of time to even get one. 4

  • Very relaxing cruise but not long enough for the money. I thought it went around the island which would have been good. Also by the time we got our hot breakfast the egg was cold. 4

  • Excellent onboard service, great range of salads, veges, meats and desserts for lunch. Tip for you - sit downstairs. Its quieter and you are served by the fantastic helpful and friendly staff before all the other passengers. Highly recommended. Just wish it was about 30 minutes longer. 5

  • Our quality of service were far exceeded when we stepped onto the boat. We were greeted with smiles from all, we were seated personally and told what to expect. We had a visit from the captain who later let us know some great facts about the lake etc. The trip was thoroughly enjoyable. The meal was fantastic, the food was great and catered for all. Overall I could not recommend this trip to anyone enough. We are from NZ and I do recommend this trip to locals, it was well worth it. 5

Which was surprising as there was an international flavour of patrons lost in conversation drugged with the excitement of the morning lake cruise. Breathless!!! 5

The skipper went out of his way to give the 3 Aussies on board a special commentary in the wheelhouse as the remainder of the passengers were one large group of Japanese tourists who had their own tour guide supplying them a commentary. VERY TASTEFULLY done so as not to offend anyone or make anyone feel left out. 5
