    Great captain but very empty due to time of year. Fantastic

    Took the grandsons on a Santa Cruise, unfortunately the river was too high to set sail. That didn't matter the grandchildren had a great time, your Santa was wonderful. And the gifts were Amazing, all 3 boys were delighted with a wonderful individual gift. If this is anything to go by, I would have no worries about booking a river outing with you. Thank you. & Happy Christmas ⛄🎄
