"Just returned from my 2nd Sunrise River cruise with Orwell Lady- despite the cloudy skies we had a great very early morning trip on the river- the skipper was informative, the breakfast was great - even better eaten al fresco on deck. I will be booking for next year's trip for sure - a really different way to celebrate the Summer Solstice. thanks to all the crew!"
