Kudos to the Crew

“My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the moonlight cruise. COVID guidelines were followed, music was awesome, staff was fantastic, reasonable drink/food prices. Take a blanket for those chilly nights, if you’ll be sitting outside, and don’t be afraid to ask someone around you to take your picture. Book in advance, relax and enjoy the ride.” – Lindsay


“We had a wonderful time. My husband and I we’re seated upstairs when it was time to go downstairs and get food as per usual I had a hard time walking the stairs. There was a wonderful associate who saw my problems and immediately found a table for us so I wouldn’t have to go with the steps. I was so grateful to her. I am sorry I didn’t get her name, she was wearing shorts. Just as friendly, Helpful and basically a wonderful person We will Definitely do this again thank you.” – Diane


“We went on a cruise with my daughters Girl Scout Troop and it was really nice. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. They made sure we were happy with our seats and even helped the girls move chairs so the could all sit along the rail together. The concession stand was nice with a decent variety of food…They gave the girls a scavenger hunt to do that was fun and educational. The cruise lasted 2 1/2 hours and the kids were happy the whole time.” – Sara
