My husband and I went on a Sunday cruise, the meal was sold out so I don't know about the food. When we first got in line to board we thought it would take forever but the line moved very quickly. The cruise was fun and the narrator pointed out points of interest along the way. On the way back there was live jazz, it was pretty good! You could walk around and go down and check out the steam room, very cool.

“Refreshing Cruise - Great Music - Great Narration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

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.

“If you have the time --”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

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.

“Nice end to a vacation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

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".
