This cruise was quite a disappointment. Right off the bat, it was apparent that it was way overbooked. They did not have seats for probably 50-60 people. Secondly, the "appetizers" were subpar (although there was plenty of water and soda all the way to the end of the cruise). Thirdly, there was nothing to do for about 2.5 hours of the cruise. The firework show (which was amazing when it was finally going) was only about 20 minutes. So from 7pm-10pm, there was nothing to do but just talk or look around at the sights. In the beginning it was okay, because there was the sunset and you're fresh and excited. But after the fireworks were over, we didn't make it back to shore until after 10pm. I don't know what was going on, but one of the crew members said something about the docks being blocked by other boats. That's fine, I know they don't have control over that, but we almost made it back to the dock and we turned back out to the water with no explanation. Furthermore, what made this part awful, was the engine of the boat was working so hard to reverse and then move forward, and all the other movements it needed to get back to shore, that there was TONS of smoke coming onto the boat right where tons of people were. It was awful. It got all in our faces, smelled horrible and just made us feel bad. My 11 year old nephew was coughing the rest of the night because of it. The crew didn't seem apologetic nor did they help explain what happened. Also, the crew went around asking people if they needed anything, but only asked us once the whole time, not sure if that's standard. The whole thing could have been an hour shorter and we probably would've been happy. At the end when it's dark and late, you just want to go home.
