The staff is very professional. A quick sail out into the bay with the work team. The weather wasn't great and I would recommend a jacket and closed toe shoes. The restroom was awkward so probably should use facilities before you leave.

We went on the dinner cruise and were pleasantly surprised. The dinner was terrible, but the voyage was outstanding and we had a Celtic band on the boat that made it a perfect night! One on our best times!
