    Amazing holiday

    It was a great experience for us. The boat was very clean and tidy and kids really enjoyed it. The booking and the use of the boat equipment instructions were very clear and easy. Overall it’s an excellent stay for us I will definitely book for longer stay in the future because we only stayed for one night. My kids want to stay for longer but I already planned and booked some other things. The only thing is lacking there is no usb sockets but it’s not a minus point the reason I am mentioning it is because we only took one socket but we 4 of us had to manage with one.
