The trip was nice and leisurely with a nice narration of what we were seeing. There were the obligatory bad jokes but they really weren't that bad and fit in with the cruises attention to "Millionaire's Row." The homes were beautiful and the stories about their owners just lent themselves to some bad jokes, like the inventor of Viagra. I... More

Even though this is a very touristy attraction I liked it. It was a good 90 minutes of relaxing, enjoying the weather and looking at stunning houses. Houses...or mansions that you otherwise wouldnt be able to getting as close to. Tourguide was good and also have some facts about Miami

This 90 minute harbour area tour is satisfactory as is the ship but nothing special, what I find disturbing is the staff who sell the tickets are so cold, impersonal, have know people skills, very cold, unhelpful and have a DGAS attitude to customers. Considering this is a huge tourist city and event, these people are so unpolished and lack... More

Very comfortable cruise showing where I am glad I don't have to pay taxes on. It is a good add on to 24 hour hop-on Hop-off tours.

We added this cruise to a hop-on hop-off bus ticket as a way to get a different view of the city. The ride was nice, the views were beautiful and we learned a little about the history and residents of the Miami area. Just beware of the raffle - you win by losing!

We went on board at 16:00h so we had a great view on the city lights on our way back. On the way up we saw 2 dolphins in front of a mega yacht. Guide was ok, you can have drinks on board. We saw some great villa's during the tour.

We were going to go on a Miami City tour boat cruise. There was nothing posted to indicate that Island Queen ran this cruise but we found it anyhow. The first annoying thing was being instructed on our way to get on the boat to stop to have a posed photo. Shortly after the boat departed 2 "Reps" from carnival... More

The boat tour was ok. It was a nice ride through the beautiful area with plenty of great scenery. I was not a fan of the "special surprise" drawing which was some kind of Carnival gimmick. Also, the guide referred to everyone as "the very famous" whomever...it got a bit stale.

We took this cruise on Jan 22, with one day to enjoy Miami after a Caribbean cruise. While the cruise was fine, the time share sales pitch disguised as a draw for a prize by Carnival representatives was a total turn off. Island Queen Cruises should rethink their policy of allowing these kind of sales tactics on a paid excursion.... More
