Sailing (although weather spoilt it up to a point as it was raining), food was good and the talk made it very interesting.

A bit chilly on boat could do with some heating.

Weather was great as was the company. Food good. Very enjoyable trip.

Difficult getting hold of company to make a booking - needs to improve response to emails etc when you are trying to make a booking.

A really nice experience all round. Very nice food and as much tea/coffee as you can drink. There's also a short shopping opportunity at a wharf (much approved of by my wife), which I don't think is mentioned in the offer details. The boat operators were most convivial and I would definitely recommend this cruise.....make sure you book as early as possible before you want to go though because with the offer being so popular and with only 12 people per cruise, getting a particular date might prove difficult if you leave it too late.

I thought it was a lovely way to spend a relaxing couple of hours in the beautiful West Lancashire countryside. The food supplied was also first rate and the service was excellent.

The pub - The Ring O'Bells - from which MBARK departs is also well recommended if you are a Real Ale fan!

18 November 2014 Maurice United Kingdom

We had lovely time on the barge. We were fortunate to be just four of us, which made it more special for us. Lovely barge and great people/staff. The star rating isn't working, I would rate them as excellent in every aspect.

The star rating doesn't seem to be working, marking some poor when we were very pleased with everything. I would rate them all as excellent.
