Also, the crews wear masks and are taking precautions to keep everyone safe at all times. 

If cruising on the river is your kind of fun, try it a second night with a different company.  Know that most of these companies are also happy to take you and your friends on a private cruise as well. I am not associated with any of these tour operators.
