How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The whole point of this "cruise" is to SEE the fireworks. Unfortunately, the entire upper deck is covered in some sort of a tent, so only those who got there early enough to "reserve" places on the aft (rear) rail were able to see anything. The captain is not allowed to maneuver the boat as its final position is determined by the police. Horrible DJ who blasts the same tape over and over again - so loud, I could not think. Not enough chairs - so about two-thirds of the passengers had to stand the whole 4+ hours. This "Jewel" is NOT any luxury yacht; a better description would be a floating bus. The food was OK and they were generous with the drinks, so that was good. Unfortunately, the stink of diesel exhaust was everywhere.Overall, I would rather have stayed home and sorted laundry. Do NOT waste your money!

Help others enjoy a great night out

Very casual
Easy and free on the street after 6:00 PM
School lunch, but free and with alcohol!
Bring ear plugs for the DJ & a gas mask for the diesel exhaust.
