A GREAT CRUISE AND GREAT CREW, BUT MAKE SURE TO PARK AT THE MARRIOTT PARKING STRUCTURE AND ARRIVE WELL BEFORE THE 15 MIN. INDICATED, AS YOU WILL NOT FIND PARKING ANYWHERE NEAR THE BOAT DOCK AND THEREFORE RISK MISSING THE CRUISE. THIS ISN'T COMMUNICATED AT ALL BY THE EVENT PLANNER.

Great narration of the sights, lots of spaces open and enclosed as it was a bit brisk. Bar is a nice area and staff very polite and courteous!

The tour was terrific. Our guide narrated the entire cruise, which was very informative and educational.

Great tour… loved the narration. Getting up closed and under the Newport Bridge was very cool!

Fun cruise. Informative and interesting. Worth the money!
