We had a great time on this 2-hour cruise through the Delaware River. The lunch Buffett was very good. I especially enjoyed the dance floor. The views along the way were not the best. IT mostly industrial after you leave port.

Had a good time with a group on this tour. The food is served buffet style and was pretty good. Wasn’t prepared for the dance music which was too loud. The cruise could have ended an hour earlier.
