Drinks are high priced (as expected), small soda about $5. No ice tea or coffee. Food was ok and enough to fill up on.

The weather was It was a sunny summer day (late June), it was very warm on the boat - the third floor was the only one with air conditioning it initially, after the first 45 minutes or so the other floors started to cool down. No sweater/shirt needed, I think even if you were outside.the boat was very warm. I wore shorts/jeans, cotton shirt, sandles.
