We took the sunset cruise with our 6 year old and he had a great time. He was entertained from the beginning and wanted to go back again the next day. It was a nice relaxing cruise for the adults. We had a great time.

Zeke and Barnicle Bill were funny. Great improve. Great for families with young kids. The only thing I would change is that they find some way to "open a tab" for folks using a card, because we didnt think to bring cash. (My mistake.) We...More
