My parents' are coming this week from my country for 40's wedding anniversary and my graduation. There is just one time opportunity to experience BAY Cruise for my parents, so I would like to give perfect experience to my parents. We are going to book sunset cruise, but I am confused which cruise to choose. Please give me any advice. Thanks!
