This cruise leaves the waterfront at 5.30. Complete with informative commentary and some cultural dancing. It only goes for 1.5 hours but it is a nice way to see the city and spend an evening before dinner.

Hi there, You can book through any agent to my knowledge, or you can go buy a ticket at the pier just for the cruise.

You have to check if it was the BIG cruise or a small boat, with different period of cruising too.
