Honestly, I thought the trip cruise was incredibly boring. The easy listening music and the heat (no fans and barely a breeze) were enough to put some passengers to sleep. The commentator did share some interesting tidbits, but it would have been more fun to just ride around on the City Cat and get on/off at different spots as overall the commentary wasn't anything special either.
