We are sorry to hear you had less than satisfactory experience onboard Kingfisher. We have been in touch with your tour operator and they agree that we complied completely with their social distancing requirements. Please contact them directly if you have any additional comments. Our scones are specially ordered for each cruise and must be ordered in advance. Your tour operator elected not to take advantage of this option. We work very hard to ensure we have great ratings and reviews on TripAdvisor our reputation depends upon it. We feel your review was unjustified and would ask that you would please update it.

Had a great cruise the first time we have been south on the canal, with a pleasant potter to where the fish and chips where taken on board. The meals were tasty and filling as we traveled north again to Garstang for the quiz, a music and general knowledge thankfully not to brain taxing for us 4 oldies. Then answers and results on return leg but we didn't win the wine though. We book these trips as combined birthday presents and always enjoy ourselves, the staff (crew?) Are efficient and friendly and the drinks on board are reasonably priced. The boat itself has a toilet and is reasonably roomy but I'm not small. overall a good experience would recommend but early booking is required very popular.

What an amazing night! We were entertained by the fantastic After Dark with the back drop of sheep on a roof! How different is that? What a way to spend an evening! Once underway we had lovely chips (special diets catered for) as we cruised along the canal laughing at the fantastic actors. Such a different night out...a must book now for the next one!!
