The cruise itself was great
The cruise itself was great, beautiful location and the crew were fantastic and knowledgeable. A little disappointed with the wine tasting and afternoon tea. Was surprised there was no option to buy any of the wines tasted and the afternoon tea was whisked away before I got to it :-(
The cruise is fantastic
The cruise is fantastic! If you a first-time visitor to Launceston, this is a must-do cruise. There is so many information on the cruise delivered by the fantastic captain. You are able to see so much of the Launceston landscape by going on this cruise. We had plenty of afternoon tea to consumed as well. The mini wine and beer tasting was a great way to sample the products offered in Launceston. I highly recommend this cruise to everyone.
We had an excellent cruise
We had an excellent cruise, staff were very friendly and informative. We learnt so much about the area we would not otherwise have known. The time passed way too quickly as the experience was very comfortable and enjoyable.
