Waitress was new and didn't know what she was doing. No champagne at entry. Chicken was super dry. Overall experience was good. Not worth $400 for 2.
I recommend this trip!

What a great time we had! Wonderful service, friendly staff and guests, fun music and dancing, great food and drinks!
This was a really fun experience!
, Jul 2021
Food, and atmosphere were really good. The service was excellent! Our server Dorathy was absolutely wonderful, my mom spilled her drink and they took care of it and brought her another one with no embarrassment. The dancing and music was unexpectedly fun! Just the night we needed :)
Average food for the cost. Memorable views.
, Jul 2021
We had a blast dancing the the views were spectacular. The food was average. It was very expensive for the food selections we could get at any restaurant. I was shocked that we then had to pay $20 for parking. We had a memorable night but wouldn't do it again based on the cost.
It’s a good experience for us
, Jul 2021
Foods is ok. Should offer more choices of foods like Asia and Hispanic. If the cruise ads states 3 hrs long then keep it 3 hrs not 2 hrs and 30 minutes only. Your costumer should get what they paid.
Music was too loud
, Jul 2021
The trip was great. My only concern was that the music was way too loud, making it hard to hear what my companion across the table was saying.
Awesome dinner on the water!!!

Beautiful views, good food and great music diversity. My husband and I had a great time out on the bow looking at the view of the city and great conversation with our dinner neighbors. If you are looking for a great night of romance or just good food and great time to relax; this is definitely the way to go. Thank you to all the staff, we had an amazing night!
