Cast off in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor on this 3-hour luxury dinner cruise. Pass popular attractions including the Maryland Science Center, Pride Mast Memorial and the Francis Scott Key Bridge, while you dine on a gourmet buffet prepared with seasonal offerings. Admire Baltimore’s illuminated skyline as you are entertained by the ship's crew and a DJ spinning top hits. This dinner cruise makes an excellent prelude to a night on the town.

I believed wrongly that with timed tickets the circulation of visitors would be monitored. My husband and I took our granddaughter and it felt claustrophobic ; there were so many people. We could not get out quick enough.it was mobbed. No social distance. In several spots the escalator did not work, and there were empty hand sanitizer containers. The employees seemed bored. The person telling us to go up the back stairs was so busy on his cell phone that I couldn’t ask him if I understood him correctly. The aquarium seems run down from our last visit.

We have visited the aquarium once before and have wanted to go back every since. This was our 2nd time there and it was a good experience. Covid restrictions have made for timed tickets which is rough for us with our little ones as that makes us late for almost everything. Luckily it wasn't a big deal that we were late. After reading reviews about long wait times during the weekend to get in we did visit during the week and had no wait. Other visitors were spaced well and we had no problem seeing all the exhibits. I can see how easily things could get difficult on the weekends with more people so I definitely recommend going during the week if you are able. Overall I think they are doing their best with the restrictions and this is still one of our favorite aquariums to visit. Hopefully next time we can bring extended family with us.

I totally agree with Abbey R. We were totally upset with the crowds and having to tell our 5 & 9 year olds to stop, stop, stop.

While the aquarium is beautiful and parking is conveniently located, I can't say we enjoyed our trip to the fullest. We chose to purchase tickets online for the evening slots, which was very simple to do online. The website clearly stated their COVID guidelines and if they were not abided by, that the guest(s) would be asked to leave. I was happy to read the guidelines and happy to think they would be enforced, however, I was wrong. There were clusters of large families crowding exhibits for 5+ minutes at a time, not giving 6ft or even an inch of space from different parties. Children were climbing on tanks, banging on the glass, and constantly getting under my feet. I also paid $80 for two adult tickets and the entire Rainforest floor was closed, dolphin shows were discontinued, and the main gift shop was closed. I was frustrated to find out we could not tour the entire rainforest floor of the museum and still paid full price.The gift shop closure by the entrance wouldn't of been bothersome, however, the only one open was tiny and was not sizable for the amount of guests in it. The poor two cashiers were slammed with a long line wrapping around the gift shop. I can appreciate the aquarium's attempt at their COVID guidelines, but they were not enforced at all. They could of used attendants stationed around the museum at certain points to make sure things were evened out. We will not be back until the pandemic lifts.
