Nice boat ride. The narration of the scenes along the banks was irritating. The food was good and so was the service.

If you decide to take this cruise, I would recommend avoiding the dining rooms and just staying above deck. The views from the upper deck of the sunset and the ocean are amazing. That was worth the experience. However, eat before you come. The food...More
