Enjoyable cruise

about 2 months ago
This was an enjoyable cruise. The guide was knowledgeable with some humor added in. I would have preferred to have had a longer time on the steamboat. We were on he boat for an hour and at the battle site for an hour. Also would have liked to have had more history abut hte city on the return trip from the battle site.

Fun Experience

The experience was great even though it rained the whole trip. Food was also good. Would have liked a little more information up front as to when the food was ready so we would have had more time to explore the fort and to enjoy the trip. The historian was hilarious...highlight of the trip.

Everything was great! The only thing I saw was people didn’t care that you had signs up for social distancing and sat in the seats anyways.the commentator did really great on his commentary.
