  I cannot overstate how pleased I was with our rehearsal dinner cruise on the Grand Lady. The food and refreshments were wonderful and plentiful, and the crew and servers went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. There were quite a few people from out of town in the wedding party, and they were impressed with the whole experience and gained a new appreciation for Buffalo after observing the city sights from the Grand Lady's deck.
