The cruise was relaxing . Beautiful scenery .

4 star rating: Recommended August 2014

The weather was beautiful, the crew was very nice, the drinks were good, and the sail was exhilarating. As we were sitting closer to the front of the boat, we couldn't hear the captain talk about the various sites. It would be nice it he could have had a mike so everyone could hear.
