Backwaters Cruising - Excellent. Once in a lifetime experience
Candlelight Dinner - Candle light Dinner was w/o candle as we were told by crew members that due to mosquito we need to have the dinner early(8pm) which spoiled the overall night
Service - OVerall service was satisfactory as the crew members were in a hurry to serve lunch, Snacks and Dinner. Crew members shld atleast wait for the guests to settle down instead of hurrying
Air Conditioner - We were strictly told by crew members not to switch on the A/C b4 7pm. But we were feeling the humidity from 5 pm. Very Bad
Food - This was the only 1 thing that I liked in the overall Backwaters trip.
Boat Ganga - This is a very old boat with not so good condition. In midway Boat engine stopped working and we're stradded in water for 15-20 mins. Crew members adjusted something with the help of rope after which the boat strated to sail again but with minimum speed. They should atleast check the condition of boat before cruising.
Crew members - Crew members could only understand local language due to which we're not able to get lot of things and had to keep silent. Atleast crew members shld be able to speak National Language (Hindi)
Room - Room in the boat was very congested
Room Decoration - It was told earlier in the Trip Iternary about Flower decoration but we could not find any flowers except for some Vas in which roses were kept. Whole meaning for Flower decoration was changed. Atleast pls avoid writing in Iternary if this is not covered
Overall except for the Backwater cruising and food whole Houseboat experience was not so good as we had expected and heard from our references who had visited earlier.
