Beautiful scenic cruise

The tour guide was very informative . Great history lesson and a beautiful scenic cruise. The boat was very prompt. The kids all had the opportunity to take a picture with the captain and steer the ship which they loved! Food and beverages were available on board. Very enjoyable afternoon!

We took this cruise basically to fill some time. Not really that interesting. Along the way many industrial sites were pointed out: metal recycling with stacked up cars, barges and tugboats, an old molasses factory and a yacht club. The narration could only be heard inside the cabin, not on the deck where most people were. Some pretty houses along the river, with quaint stories about the builders. All in all, not something I would recommend.

The cruise was wonderful. The crew and the narrator were polite and professional. The only addition I could make would be for the narrator to make an additional comment at the outset about talking during the narration. We were seated in the lower lounge area for this cruise. It was difficult if not impossible to hear most of the narration over several loud conversations going on around us. There was ample time for conversation on the return leg as the narration was over.

Had a great time. The weather wasn't all that good but that's not the fault of the boat company.
