The city lights at night look amazing from the boat. The music was great, country but also pop music. The crowd was fun and the experience overall made this one of the best nights we had in Nashville.

It was a good time. The only thing missing was the sun. Fun music played, bar service was good. You do bring your own beverages, but they will serve them up.

Yes, small bathroom, strange but crew does specify “only number1”. No swimming, truly it is a “booze” cruise with music and dancing!
