Heard on the Dock…

“All aspects of the cruise were wonderful but it was the kindness and warmth of the captains and crew that made the difference. Each one brought a distinctive gift to the experience from the flowers on the table to the watermelon that sailed to the music… We will never forget it.”

~ Bill & Martha D., IN
