    Really fun

    My daughter and I did the 11:30 cruise with lunch. It was loads of fun, and the meal was good. The staff were all friendly and helpful, but Gina in particular was phenomenal. Really upbeat and full of great suggestions. Passengers are all stopped to take pictures at boarding. The staff will find you at some point to see if you want to buy your photo for 35 bucks (nope), but if you tell them no thanks, they're cool about it.

    Very enjoyable cruise

    It was an extremely hot day when we cruised but we found a shady spot on the boat and enjoyed the breeze. We opted out of the lunch option but had soft drinks which came with 2 free refills. The cruise was well worth the time and the cost. We enjoyed it.
