We hung around for 30 minutes before being rushed at full pelt to the boat. The cruise was not 2 hours in length but 2 hrs included walking time so about 1 hour 40mins. Having said that, it was long enough. The information provided over the tannoy was impossible to syncronise with the landmarks (partly due to variety of languages) and we missed most of them. It was however comfortable and enjoyable apart from pre cruise and the lack of guided information on landmarks.
