How was your experience?
First let me start by saying that this event was completely disorganized. When you got to to dock the man that was suppose to be directing people which line they were suppose to stand in kept getting upset and snapping at people when they would ask him questions. You had to stand in one very long line just so someone could make a photo copy of your license and credit card, which I didn't like at all , someone having a copy of my license and credit card and they point blank told me either that or I don't get on. Which I tought was very rude. I had to call my bank and cancel my credit card. After standing in that line you had to stand in another very long line to give them the photo copies and get your tickets. Once we got on the boat we had no seats which the information did say that it may be standing room only, so that was fine. It was a buffet style meal so by the time that we were able to get past all the people and make our way downstairs to where the food was and after waiting again in a very long line most of the food was gone. The only nice thing I can say was that being on the Hudon River was beautiful and watching the sunset was gorgeous. The fireworks were amazing. If it had not been for that the whole cruise would have been a complete flop. And in speaking to several people on the cruise they all had the exact thing to say.
