I definitely enjoyed it during 6 pm which is such a perfect time - the sun is going down. The meal was great but it was the night breeze and the jazz playing that sold it to me. I highly recommend.

Would definitely do this Jazz cruise again. Music was great and sightseeing was very enjoyable. Captain very informative as we cruised. Drinks on top deck good and reasonable.

Everything about this trip was great. Boarded the boat early and was entertained by a jazz trio. Informative commentary as we sailed downstream followed by 3 course dinner.

This was one of the best things we did on our vacation! The views were awesome and the food was even better!!!

Great way to spend our Anniversary! The scenery, food, music and ride was everything!
