Awesome experience, me and my fiancee have never done anything like this. The food was awesome and live music. The view and the journey down the river and back was one of a kind!

Everyone from the check-in desk to the captain and crewman were extremely friendly and helpful. Even took the extra effort to contact the ship before deporting and let them know 2 more passengers were coming aboard. Thanks again. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.
