We took the sunset cruise with our 6 year old and he had a great time. He was entertained from the beginning and wanted to go back again the next day. It was a nice relaxing cruise for the adults. We had a great time.

While my little one's enjoyed the cruise, for $36 per adult, it's totally not worth it. This is more kid friendly and not aimed for adults at all. You cannot being any water or snacks or your own. The choice for food options is limited...More
