This was our first time taking the paddle wheel cruise. It was perfect day to sit outside on the deck, taking in the history of the city as narrated by the crew. The first have we enjoyed the outside decks, then at the Ballard Locks we went in to have lunch ( giving us an hour to enjoy our meal). There was one other couple in the dining area. We ordered fish and chips, and two coffee's with cream. We sat and waited for 40 minutes, the wait person told the other couple they ran out of clam chowder, and needed to order another item. 10 minutes to docking we got our food, but no coffee, we asked our wait person, and he said he would bring it. We finished our meal quickly due to getting ready to dock when he came back with one coffee and no cream! I reminded him that we ordered two coffees with cream so he got the second cup as we were pulling into our slip, still no cream. When asked about the cream he said they ran out! This was the first of two cruises for the holiday weekend, and the boat had maybe 50 people, or about half capacity, and they were already out of clam chowder, and coffee cream!
I would do the cruise again, and would recomend it to anyone, just dont waste your time trying to eat, and have a drink, not worth the agony!
