Food was great. Good music. Very laid back atmosphere for the cruise. We enjoyed it all. Only downside is there is a LOT of construction going on in the docking area which made finding the meeting place difficult with detours and temporary walkways (gravel in some places- tough on high heels). But overall great experience- worth the money. Definitely add the dinner option.
