Reflections on 2017 at the end of our 25th Season! Looking back it was another excellent year. Thank you to all our volunteers and to the 2050 or so people that made it all worthwhile by cruising with us this year.
As always the Summer months were busy for both boats. Waveney Stardust 2, based on the Southern Broads, was fully booked throughout July, August and September. The early and late months of the season continued the trend of the last few years with a drop in trips compared to 2016. A particular disappointment to us was the lack of take-up for our cruises in Norwich during April and November. We hope to move the Norwich schedule closer to the Summer in 2018 to see if that helps.
Overall we carried out 226 trips through the year. Some of these were hilarious, some were quiet. But all of them were enjoyed by passengers and crews alike. It was great to hear some of the customer feedback – it makes it all worthwhile for us in Waveney Stardust.

“5 stars really isn’t enough to show my appreciation of the lovely lads who we met today on a Waveney Stardust cruise from Beccles. Loved every minute of the 7 or so hours”
