Fun Time!

about 2 months ago
My husband and I had a very nice time on the cruise. The views were beautiful, the music was lively, the ride was smooth and the staff ran everything smoothly and on time. we ate on the cruise. The food was ok. Basic, nothing fabulous. Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves. My only tiniest issue was that it is very crowded. People found a seat and parked it in the same spot all night. But thats nothing against the cruise. It is an experience I would definitely recommend trying out.
