5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

My mom, aunt, brother and I really enjoyed the cruise, the food, the drinks and the fireworks. It was a first class operation. The service was excellent, the food was very good, the DJ was lots of fun, the yacht was clean, and the women's bathroom was spotless with no waitng. I will definitely do it again.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Everything was really well done, but felt we did not need to pay extra for a window seat liked the way the taxi could drop us off under cover as the weather was not great to begin with
