Reasons for trip

We booked to have a lunch cruise as part of a day trip package. It was a lovely experience, but worth a few tips for those booking a trip on this boat. We arrived a bit early and there is a waiting room, but not a lot of seating and no toilets on the premises (5 min walk to a restaurant owned by same company). The boat caters for 320 people but there is lots of room and the service was second to none. Tables beautifully laid, a dedicated waiter, and absolutely superb food. A lovely choice on the menu and just what you expect from a quality french meal. However booking through a package we had not realized that the service level listed was not just the small variances in the menu but the location within the boat. We had the Etoile service and this meant we had an inside table and not next to the window hence our view of the passing scenery was not all that I had expected. To get a window seat you need to upgrade to the Privilege Service, and even better the Premier service which is at the front of the boat. All the tables are under a glass roof, and there are shades that come over if the sun is too strong. On the return journey we had a live singer who really gave a great atmosphere to the journey. So a great time and worth doing, but also worth the upgrade.
