We really enjoyed our cruise with Hornblower. We were staying in Sliema and took advantage of the transfers for 5 euros each for a return trip to the port which was great. When we got on the boat the sundeck was pretty packed and we...More

We left Buggibba at 1030, reaching Blue Lagoon at 1155. We had one hour in the Blue Lagoon. Then the boat left for Gozo at 1300, arriving at 1315 to Mgarr Harbour. It left Gozo at 1615. Three hours in Gozo.
