Me and wife always compete with ideas of suprises every month end. On her turn she arranged the Moonlight Cruise....I was blown away, the food was more than perfect and the Cruise actually made me realise that with such an affordable price you can have such wonderful time. Thanks a lot to the team. I really enjoyed it can't wait for the summer cruise.
