First I did not know it was a "booze cruise". I'm ok with those but I wish I knew beforehand.
Staff - all were very pleasant, attentive and actively working throughout.
Food - we were the first on the boat and were not aware that the food was to be set up just inside the entry. We headed out to second level and didn't know the food was flowing until we saw people coming up with plates. There was cheese, pepperoni, olives, watermelon and salad when we went down. Later we saw people with other food but we didn't go back down.
Tour information - On the trip down the river information was given over the speaker about the shorelines but if you are on the back open air deck area it was difficult to hear.
Layout - Two lower decks enclosed and set up with tables banquet style. Minimal open air deck space (level 1 has some open air seats in the front) (level 2 had 2 tables at the rear and several chairs in the front.) Deck 3 is covered with open sides with minimal out of cover space at rear. Level 3 is the dance/dj deck.
Parking - good, right at the boat. We were told $12 but on arrival it was $20 (with parking attendant, another review said no attendant so maybe they are only there during concerts). We were told parking goes up when there is a concert just to the left of the dock. When the concert is going on the "noise" and base will vibrate the boat while you are in dock and make it difficult to hear. Very unpleasant, you might want to check on that before you book.
Surroundings - restaurants located adjacent both sides if you want to have a meal before/after your ride.
Price - I used a Groupon for two and felt it was a good value. I would recommend the ride with giving the information regarding the food set up, that it is more of a party boat, and the parking fee. Party boat is fine but for some people its not. Better to be informed than disappointed or leave a bad review.
