Great views of the city skyline. Ended up being colder out than we had hoped for, but still enjoyed going to the upper deck. The dinner buffet was really good and enjoyed the DJ as well. Over-all...a great time. The only thing that I can say I disliked was the price. For what was included it was a bit pricey.

Excellent cruise!!!! My new wife and I were married earlier that day and thought a night cruise would add to our new marriage excitement. It did!! The staff and mgmt were very professional and treated you like royalty. The food was great! The music and enviroment were very entertaining.
