Not on the cruise I went on. The boat is huge. It's one of the big, high-speed catamarans they use for the long commutes, such as down to Sandy Hook. Three decks. The bottom is mostly indoors, but has an outdoor area front and rear. The mid-deck is open to the sides and rear. And the top deck is almost all open except for a windscreen to the front. I didn't have to throw elbows to get a rail-side spot.
