What people are saying about Baltimore, Maryland

I and my friends were on the cruise to celebrate the 50th birthday of one us. We had 2 extra guests who were not on the original list for our reserved table. The manager quickly accommodated us and even moved us to the upper deck. The food was good , the servers were nice and polite. The DJ played a Nigerian music on request. The security was nice . Everything was great and fun. We will return again for another fun trip.

Great instructor very kind took my 3 yr old daughter and went in the tunnel made it so my daughter could enjoy in there. She was scared but Aubry took time with her and made her feel safe. Something we will definitely do again

The service was wonderful! the food was delicious and the music was on point for an afternoon trip. Will be booking more.

It was a nice experience but they need to at least serve a drink

Great good and service! I highly recommend this cruise!
