These people are SMART. The kids are kept busy with games and fun activities throughout the boat ride while the adults can order beer and wine from the galley. Everyone had a great time.

Fantastic cruise on a fantastic day. They kept the children occupied for the entire duration and so is adults could have some enjoyable time to ourselves. The boys enjoyed it so much. We even saw 5 dolphins and one was real close. Much recommended.

The crew is really nice, and the ship is large and very stable. It's really intended for families, small kids will have a great time. I went with a group from work and we loved it. Free beer and wine, and a full cash bar.
