Trop bien ! On a fait 4 arrêts en tout : - le premier de 30 min - le deuxième de 45 min (où on a mangé des pattes sauces tomates avec poulet et crudités) - le troisième d’1h30 à orak island -le quatrième d’1h où on a pu avoir notre thé et nos biscuits (Il y a d’ailleurs après orak island, des morceaux de pastèques) Du coup je recommande fortement pour le rapport qualité prix ! Sans oublier qu’à chaque arrêt on pouvait sauter du bateaux
