Grandparents, parents and grandchildren all had a wonderful 3 hr Sunday lunch trip. Food was plentiful and delicious, staff did everything to ensure we had a good time and the different views of Manchester were fascinating, including the close-up working of a lock. Even the weather was great - not always the case in Manchester

This 3 hour cruise was a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. It was a different way to see the city and the commentary was very informative. The trip takes you as far as Media City on the ship canal. The food has a homemade feel, but there is more than enough of it! The staff were friendly and attentive. Drinks were not included in the ticket price, but it was still terrific value for money. Excellent Covid measures in place.

Had a gorgeous Sunday afternoon lunch cruise. Eamon and his team were brilliant, very attentive and friendly. The food was delicious, piping hot. Very relaxing, the time just flew by, couldn’t have asked for anything more, would definitely go again.

Me and my partner spent our anniversary on board of the cruise and it was a delight from start to finish. Eamon and the staff were very accommodating and friendly and we would highly recommend this experience to both couples and families. It was awesome to finally see Manchester by water, something that was long overdue after living in this city for some many years! We look forward to booking with you again Eamon :)
