Afternoon Cruise Derwent River Harbour
Christine_M
, May 2022
Enjoyed the cruise and the commentary content. However, commentary was slightly monotone... and fast - obviously delivered by someone who has delivered it many times. Internal of boat looked unkempt and grotty. There was no clean up or tidying chairs etc between group before us alighting and our cruise boarding making the inside of the boat look uninviting. On the upstairs deck, the clear plastic vinyl windows were so dirty it was impossible to see through them. I understand we were on a late afternoon cruise but it was obvious the vinyl hadn't started off clean in the morning. Although I was unimpressed with the state of the vessel, I would still recommend this cruise due to its perfect length, reasonable cost, interesting commentary and the sheer pleasure of cruising around the picturesque Derwent River Harbour.
