Great experience living on a boat for a week.
It rained a lot, a bit pricey in high season
Spent a week on a 44 ft boot. This was our first ever time on a boat so as you can imagine it was quite a challenge. The instruction we got was minimal and did not really prepare us for the experience. However we had a great holiday, 5 adults and one child. Some of the waterways are extremely beautiful and peaceful even in August when we went. Cooking on board was brilliant, bacon sandwiches each morning whilst cruising down the broads - brilliant. Our only gripe or struggle was parking the boat. 44 ft is quite a size, going forward was great but trying to reverse was a struggle. The toilet experience was extremely amusing as we had a chemical toilet with an handle. Spent the first few days laughing about peoples experiences on the dreaded loo. Personally plan your land visits is my advice!! I think things would have been better had we got a newer boat as ours was a four star. Overall a memorable experience. Make sure you take someone with you is good at parking the boat and you will be fine.
