First time on a dinner cruise and it was perfect. Our waiter Sarah was attentive and always made sure we didn't need anything else. The food was great, we had the arugula Salas, chicken, and lime cheesecake. The views were stunning and the dj knew exactly what to play and that's a bit of everything. Everything was perfect!

Started off a little rough. There was confusion on the seats set up. However it was Thoroughly explained and they made it up to us the whole night. (Due to barely coming back and the covid Changes they had to change the way they originally set it up) the food was absolutely amazing! The dj they had was great and the staff were at times overwhelmed but still kept a professional and wonderful attitude! Definitely would recommend this to anyone needing a get a way or a romantic date! We will definitely be going again!

Just relaxing and enjoying the views and the sunset. The music was good and also the food - the service was excellent and our waiter Paul was also excellent - and we were a little late and they could have sailed without us but waited - One other thing - it appears that you can park right on the dock which we did not know and if we had known that in advice we would not have been late because we had to park three blocks away.

Good time

It was lovely to see the bridges and city sky line, I think it should start sooner, at 5:30-6:30 this would ensure people have more daylight to take in the view, and give people a better time to eat. There were people being served Dinner at 9:45 when the cruise ends at 10:30 ! They were a little in organized since they are trying to figure out Covid regulations and social distancing but for my birthday it was amazing and I totally recommend

Great food, not great service

The food was amazing, but we were a little disappointment with how our waiter treated us versus how they treated other diners. Also, most of us were unaware until we got there that dancing on a dance floor was not included, even though it says “dinner dance cruise” in the title and description.
