It was good, but was a bit windy on the return journey. I wish I had brought warmer clothing.

Too crowded with people. No discussion as stated about the stops we were making. It was late to leave.

Lovely! It was a beautiful cruise - felt a bit long towards the end, but perhaps because we were tired from the day. Take layers as the wind can make things a bit chilly. Regardless of which ticket you buy, you'll be allowed on the top deck!
