No Xmas music playing, like other large boats we passed. No narration by the captain re: where we were at different points along the route.

The boat ride itself was nice and calming. However, the back of the boat smelled like fish (not very pleasant)!
Other Comments
There weren't homes that had amazing decorations. It was mediocre at best.

Getting off the boat and back to dry land.
Other Comments
Boat was over sold as far as seating. Had to stand for the entire time. The hot chocolate was very watered down and tepid. Alcohol and mixed drinks was sold on the boat therefore a couple of people who could not manage their intoxication. They were very loud and distracting. Would not want to do this again.
