Overall the trip was enjoyable and informative. I couple of things: when you sit downstairs to eat you cannot hear the commentary. The live music was very good but I think we missed quite a few facts before we realized. Coffee was not included with the meal which was not made clear & was $5/cup. The strawberry cocktail was very sweet and $20US which was steep. Easy way to find out about the city when only visiting for the weekend. Staff were all very friendly. Bathrooms were clean as was the rest of the boat.
