    The food was Ono, as they say in Hawaii! The views were marvelous but the best part was two families that were Celebrating Birthdays and were dancing up a storm to the DJ’s music! It was like a fun Floor Show! Loved it all!!!

    First time experiencing a dinner cruise. It was everything we both imagined but more. It was my partner’s 46th birthday, and in his words, “This is the best birthday ever!” Food, service, music, and crewmen was awesome. Great atmosphere and plenty of views.

    The crew was nice, but no wait staff like the picture portrays. The food was terrible, drinks were bottom shelf and overpriced, and the music makes you feel like you’re at a bad wedding reception. The DJ walks around the boat (including outdoor top deck) to make sure he turns the music up enough so that there isn’t the slightest chance of a peaceful experience during the 3 hour trip. Several of us debated swimming home. For $130 I expected a lot more.

    Didn’t get to sail
    Carol_S
    , Mar 2022
    The food was delicious, the service was excellent. Those were the highlights of the trip. We didn’t get to sail due to the weather (after they cancelled our cruise and moved it to another day), didn’t get any money back (we could have gone to dinner anywhere, the whole point was to sail), and trying to add people onto our reservation after we had already booked was a FIASCO. I mean literal hours spent on the phone just to make sure we sat together. The company that handles their ticketing leaves much to be desired.

    Sadly we never left the harbor.

    The food and service was very good, but it was quite a disappointment that the boat wasn't able to leave the harbor. Friends traveled a long way to meet us for this cruise and I feel a refund or voucher should have been given since the adventure is actually the cruise. We could have had dinner anywhere.

    It was a great time. The food was really good. The service was good. Great atmosphere for a date night. The DJ kept the party going with good music to dance to. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone for a night out with friends or a date night. The staff really provided great service.

    Poor experience
    Savannah_D
    , Nov 2021
    The food was phenomenal. But the service was very disappointing. I felt like they wanted us to leave our table and stay outside in the freezing cold. Anytime you got up to use the restroom or go on the deck, the waitress would clear the table completely (including the only silverware provided and new full drinks). I don’t understand the concept behind this because they say the buffet is all you can eat. Yet they take away the plates, drinks, and silverware and leave you with nothing to eat with. We had to hunt someone down to ask for a fork when we needed it. It was never offered. The only thing we didn’t have that the waitress made time to give us was pen to sign the check and leave a tip. She was attentive then. But not with anything else we needed throughout the night. I do not recommend this cruise. It certainly wasn’t worth the price. Extremely disappointed.
