Amazing show!

The dinner cruise was really amazing. The boat is new and lovely, atmosphere was great, staff was very nice and welcoming. We truly enjoyed the food, just the fish was not really the best option - lacked some salt. The seating in the row does not allow you to have a conversation if you are in a group with more than 3 people, but lets you enjoy the amazing views :) Also the duration was not 1h15min as advised, but a bit over 2 hours. In general it was a great experience with very reasonable pricing. Totally recommend.
