They allowed me to propose during the ride and the manager that night even helped to capture the special moment. We are grateful for the extra accommodation. She said YES! The food onboard was amazing, and the band, who played a perfect rendition of happy birthday as a distraction, were the best we have heard so far into our forever. THANK YOU for our incredible memory!

It was an over all nice experience. Most of the staff were very friendly. Docking was very fast easy (on and off). Not exactly sure of the name of the band that played but they were really good! The food was ok. Not many vegetarian choices which sucked because my husband and I are both vegetarian. An overall great experience and I’m sure we will do again in the future!

Unfortunately, the Creole Queen had a technical defect and the cruise did not take place at all. We left the ship after dinner. There are still 4 stars because the food was good and the handling (including full refund of the price, although we had already eaten) worked without any problems. GetYourGuide also offered us a discount on future bookings within one year as compensation. Of course we would have preferred to take the trip, but something like that can happen and that was handled very professionally and unbureaucratically.
