Bursting with elaborate designs and kaleidoscopic color arrangements, this exhibit in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at The New York Botanical Garden will delight nature lovers and enchant guests of all ages who love the beauty of nature. With the theme Key West Contemporary, you can step out of the bustling city and straight into the Florida Keys, where the dramatic beauty of a flourishing tropical garden is amplified by vibrant architecture that reflects this particular island's charm and ambience. The Enid A. Haupt Conservatory's sprawling glasshouse galleries are transformed into a modernist Key West estate garden, where an effusion of orchids -- including Vanda (rainbow orchids), Dendrobium (cane orchids) and Cymbidium (Asian corsage orchids) -- bloom among serene geometric reflecting pools, soaring angular pergolas and sleek benches.

Our experience was probably not typical, so keep that in mind...we took the miaden voyage of this particular trip, and on a boat meant for 40-50 there were only 5 of us! Thus we had a one-to-one staff to customer ratio and got to feel like rich yacht owners for a few hours. The food (ingredients for hearty sandwhiches, hummus, potato salad and cole slaw with cookies and brownies for dessert) was very good and unsurprisingly plentiful. The boat is very nice - very low to the water, large windows, and a smallish deck. Not sure what the experience would be like if the boat was crowded, but probably still fun.

The boat had at least 40 people and was quite full...a few less people would have been better, but there was lots of food and the service was excellent and the day was perfect. Just a few too many people. Everyone was more than happy.
