I just want to say a huge thank you from my team to yours, for all of your help both in the run up to and on the night of our event. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and I’ve had nothing but positive feedback. Thank you so much and I hope to work with you again in the future.
Our event at City Cruises bespoke was suited to our every needs. The event was a surprise to our students and they weren't disappointed. In fact, they were really excited. The vessel looked excellent and the upper deck views at night were much appreciated. The dancefloor was arranged perfectly at the front of the ship. A great organisation beforehand made sure we had an amazing evening.

I had the most brilliant birthday celebrations on board the Erasmus! The team were fantastic from start to finish. I would highly recommend for any type of event... but especially parties!”
