All issues around booking our holiday threw the Australian Office were dealt with promptly and with very adequate information relating to our booking. A very comfortable boat which met all out needs over the 7 day journey during what were heat wave conditions for several days. The excellent kitchen set up of the boat allowed us to self cater when needed, as well as dine out in local villages.
Hi Graeme, thank you for your feedback. We're so glad that you had a great holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back on board another cruise soon.

Handover service was good, incl the test drive. We were driven to local supermarket, some 3 km away, so that we could provision the boat with "basic" provisions... we were not told that we had to supply all sorts of kitchen cleaning ware, condiments, toilet paper, soap etc The boat was very comfortable, although not well provisioned with the basic condoments etc, as previously mentioned. Bilge pump also activated during the night (quite noisy), end bedroom shower did not drain, slow wifi. The "welcome pack" for 125 Euros is NOT worth it...just a few crackers, biscuits, jar of jam and terrine???
Hi Milton, thank you for your feedback and we are so glad that you had a great holiday overall. We have taken your feedback on board and hope to welcome you back on another cruise in the future.

Everything worked as advised, no problems with the boat or navigation. Great value for the money. See parts of France missed by most tourists.

Marina ma łatwy dojazd i duży parking, można podjechać pod samą łódź. Obsługa jest uśmiechnięta i miła. Łodzie czyste i dobrze przygotowane do podróży. Hausboat Świetny, super przestronny, kabiny jak małe pokoje hotelowe, sporo szafek schowków itp. Na górnym pokładzie dużo miejsca do siedzenia, grill gazowy. Miejsce sternika na środku a to przy manewrach trochę niewygodne. Poza tym wszystko OK, polecam.

Fantastic week spent cruising on the Shannon. Boats were very well equipped and staff were helpful and accommodating. We'll be back! Fabulous boat, lots of space and very well equipped. Expensive week for a large boat. It would be great to get a more attractive discount for repeat customers. We have been going for many years and although we get the standard €100 repeat customer discount, it is not much of a reduction when the cruiser hire is €3500. 5 Stars for a fantastic holiday!
Dear Mrs M,
Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are pleased to learn you enjoyed your cruise on the River Shannon and were satisfied with the customer service you received.
Thank you for your feedback on the boats - we have passed your comments onto the base teams. Your suggestion for a larger repeat bookers discount has been considered.
We look forward to welcoming you on board with us again soon!
Best wishes, The Le Boat team

Late boat delivery completed at 7:30 pm. No one at the end base spoke English until around 2 pm Excellent boar design. Best showers/cabin accommodations we have had on 15 different trips. Joy stick piloting worked perfectly. Boat was a little worn/ abused
