We unfortunately chose a noon cruise on the harbor Queen. Little did we know the cruise company loaded the boat with two unruly school groups. Forty minutes later we disembarked after not hearing a word of the narrated history of the harbor and being blasted with dance music used by teachers to try to calm their children after we voiced...

We took advantage of a worry-free boat trip on Sunday 4/30/2017 to the WineFest in St. Michaels, MD. Talk about a Professional Crew! We were on the Lady Sarah and our Captain (forgot her name) warmed our hearts as power boaters. Her engines remained running until such time that the Captain was satisfied that the lines were secured to her... More

My daughter and I had a walking tour of Annapolis and the USNA with Laura on Sunday, May 7. It was a wonderful tour. Laura was pleasant and so incredibly knowledgeable about so many aspects of Annapolis and the USNA. Laura's enthusiasm and intelligence made the trip fun and intriguing for my 16 year old daughter and for me. My... More

The check in process was very disorganized. I was handicapped and I paid extra for priority boarding and they forgot about me. By the time I reminded them I was pushed on the stairs and did not receive good seats. No ne was there to help. We were dropped off by old railroad tracks and debris and it was hard... More

We want all of our guests to feel welcome and appreciated and while many enjoyed this experience, we fell short with you. Thank you for your feedback and we will address the landing area... More

We took the Raven to St Michael's on 4/30 for the Wine Festival. We arrived early and didn't have any problem with check in, boarding or embarking. If you have been on a cruise liner, this was a piece of cake. We met some lovely people and had a great time. The staff was excellent, food was average but didn't... More

Kudos to the staff on the Raven who took us to the Wine Fest in St Michaels. We had a wonderful time on the Raven and at the Wine Fest. A few suggestions to make it better, perhaps a more streamlined boarding process. Also provide a shuttle to return to vehicles parked at outside locations. Many were stranded and had... More

We purchased the early seating for the wine fest cruise and I highly recommend doing that. We were able to find nice, comfortable seats. I read a few of the other reviews about boarding, but we did not have any issues. The cruise took about two hours. They offered bagels, fresh fruit, coffee and tea. The staffers were friendly, helpful,... More

Our check in and departure were very smooth. We arrived early as asked to.We were on the first boat and it was a delight. plenty of food, and drink (if you wanted it) which many did. The poor bartender could have had help. But that didn't bother me.

Thank pnc199
