Had a great time on the ship. Food, music and the deck was awesome. Weather was gorgeous. The price was not expensive for a window seat.

The crew, food and Parade of Sails narrative during Harborfest were all incredible. A group of 16 of us went and all enjoyed it. One was in a wheelchair and they personally assisted her onto and off the craft. Great day.

As a local I've taken this cruise a number of times over the years, but last night was not the best time I've had. The wait staff was top notch as usual, but the food was bland, and just not interesting at all. The desert...More
