Myself and my partner had our wedding along with 12 members of our family and friends on the World Yacht on 20th June 2014. The experience was fantastic. We had the private ceremony on the top deck of the Princess Yacht for over an hour, and we also had our professional photographs during this time. The Princess Yacht is lovely... More

Overall this was a fantastic dinner cruise, however the manager aboard did leave a bitter taste at the end of the evening, I'll mention this later in the review. We boarded the ship at 18:30. The ship was really nice inside, we were served our glass of champagne and the band soon began to play. The band were really fantastic,... More

Overall I was not satisfied with the experience, the food was good, drinks was reasonable but the dj suck, he catered more to the young house music generation but he should have play a different selection of music, reggae, r and b, etc and he didn't...I sat for the 3 hours couldn't even dance and enjoy myself

One word- amazing!!!! I cannot say enough good things about this experience! We did the Adventure Cruise which is the dinner buffet cruise. The boat itself is beautiful with three levels. The buffet dinner was delicious! The salad, the pasta with the pesto sauce, the pork loin that melted in your mouth, the salmon,the beef, all of it was so... More

My wife & I decided to combine a tour of the city at night on the cruise while celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary with a lovely dinner. Service from our waiter (Clayton) was superb and as we opted for the upgrade to window seats and drinks included it was a great night. Definitely worth it. Service was the level you... More

My experience was pretty much complicated as I had problems with the booking, seats and everything. But the manager, knowing the situation had nothing to do with me (and frankly he also didn't have anything to do with that), made my day! He, LUIS COMPRES, did any and everything he could to compensate the stressing time I had and it... More

What a different a few years make , seems like the dinner cruise trips are struggling since the economy downturn. The boat se sailed on was tiny compare to last time , the bigger boat was sailing but... More

We had a lovely time on the evening dining cruise on the world yacht. our server Robert was friendly and attentive and looked after us well. The music from a jazz trio was excellent and the food was better than I expected especially the tuna starter. Cocktails were delivered promptly and the views from our window seat were stunning. We...

We booked direct with World Yacht, and can highly recommend this way of booking. I dealt with Amanda Harragin who was really first class and could not have been more helpful. She answered all our queries and explained the options fully. You pay in USD so can take advantage of the bank exchange rate. We booked the window seat and... More
