This one and one half cruise is a delight and definitely gives you a whole different view of the area. The ship was very nice and had food and beverage to purchase as well as enclosed and open view points.

Get on and stake out your spot outside, as the boats have a lot of indoor space for the evening cruise of the harbor and lake. But the views of the city from the river are quite wonderful. On a nice night, it's well worth...More
