It was also super hot. But, that's not the crew's fault. We went on 11:30 -2:00 cruise, because it fit schedule. The crew still tried to cool the kids off which is nice! I would recommend it to any families with kiddos.

We all enjoyed the sunset cruise.. it is geared for the younger kids and their adventure with the pirates. We will definitely be back again just to watch the sheer joy of all.
