This cruise was the perfect balance between narration and live jazz music on board. The cruise was on a 92 degree summer day and being on the water brought the temperature down making it a refreshing cruise.

Take your time and enjoy the boat while on the cruise. There is plenty of room to walk around the proud vessel.

The staff is welcoming and provides a great experience.

My husband and I took the afternoon cruise without lunch. The cruise was about 2 hours. The tour guide was informative and easy to understand. We had a pretty day so it was nice to be on the water. One of those things that you "check the box" and say you did it. Not really anything to get too excited about. If you don't have the time, it's OK to skip it. Otherwise, if you're looking for something to do -- it's a great way to spend an afternoon. Kids seemed to really enjoy it. Can't comment on the food since we didn't pay for the lunch.

Pricey but worth doing once. Would I go again, on a subsequent trip? Probably not, but it was a nice end to our vacation. Drinks and the photo package were pricey. But the signature drinks were yummy and strong and our pictures turned out great! Nice views of the quarter and the sunset. You can walk pretty freely around the boat and check out all the "works".

I liked the steamboat tour, and my daughter especially liked it. I got to see parts of the city I would have not been able to see on foot. We didn't eat onboard but the cocktails were delicious and reasonably priced. You could sit inside and one of the bars was well air conditioned.
