“Bad booking experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We, family of 3 planned a trip with Featherbed Cruises to get my 4 yr old son on a special boat trip. We booked telephonically and all was OK. Once we arrived (driving for 60km to get there), we were told that they did not have enough bookings and we could not go. No mention of the minimum of 10 guests on the telephone, and not even when we arrived half an hlast minuteour early, enquired again and had a coffee. Only very last minute when we wanted to pay we were told that there will be no cruise today. Very disapointing!
