    Boat was packed, constant line at bar- not adequately staffed. Sat inside, windows on boat were so dirty, could hardly see outside. No toilet paper in restroom. Speakers were of such poor quality, could not understand anything they were saying. Would not waste your time.

    I was freezing. I went to the snack bar to order hot tea (directly off their menu) and they said it's not hot. They only had one outlet and it was being used by the pretzel machine. I say invest in a power strip....
