It was a nice sightseeing cruise around the bay in Montreal. They had both English and French speakers on the ship. Very clean. They even offered drinks while cruising. I would do it again.

There are parking garages within walking distance, and one parking lot where you can pay hourly. I would buy tickets in advance. We waited in line and ended up having to sit in the sun on the top deck in 100-degree weather.

We were outside on the top deck. But downstairs it looked pretty nice; it was a pretty well-outfitted boat, so I would be surprised if it wasn't, especially since people host weddings and all kinds of events on it.
