    Wonderful evening and amazing food!

    My boss decided to treat me and my fellow employees for a end of summer dinner on this boat and it was really really nice! We called the cruise the day before as per the instructions on our voucher to confirm our cruise time which was 7pm. Boarding began at 6pm. So I left Fort Walton early to make to sure I was there in time since traffic on Highway 98 can be a disaster during the dinner time rush hours. I got to the security gate right at 6pm and they gave me a pass and directions to the marina. It was easy to find and parking wasn't bad at all. I walked up to the Marina and saw the boat, Solaris. It's hard to miss. It's HUGE! When we arrived at the boat, we were shown to our table immediately. The dress code says "Upscale Casual." I have a foot injury so I can't wear heels or wedges so I opted for sparkly sandals. Most people wore what looked like their "Sunday Best" and business casual attire. Everyone looked really nice and I felt like our party fit in nicely with the surroundings. The band is really just one man whom plays keyboard and a few other instruments. He plays a variety of music including some line dancing songs which were really fun. He announced some birthdays and anniversaries too! I would def suggest getting whatever extra packages Tripshock offers because the wine I drank was great but $9 (I'm not complaining that is standard EVERYWHERE I go) a glass. The promotion Tripshock was running was $22 and came with 2 glass of wine, an appetizer and a photo. So next time I come I will make sure to book that! My coworkers and I loved the view from the top deck! We went up several times to check it out and take pictures. There are a few tables and chairs upstairs where you can sit down and relax. A server will also come and bring you drinks too. I ordered the Beef Filet and it was PERFECT. It was so tender and juicy. Probably the best steak I've ever had! The chef dessert choice was cheesecake and I was thrilled. I LOVE cheesecake! This was one of the best dinners I've had in a long time and my only disappointment was that I was spending this evening without my husband. We are hoping to book this cruise next month when it's a little cooler outside for a "date night." Thank you to the awesome server whom took care of us! I wish I remembered her name! I can't wait to do this again!

    Dinner Dancing Cruise

    We booked this through Tripshock at Courtney's suggestion. We were thoroughly impressed and pleased. The food was excellent, the entertainment and atmosphere superb, and the service staff was friendly and accommodating. We highly recommend this as a first-rate, first class romantic experience. Tripshock has won my business and praise!

    My wife and I read reviews on this dinner cruise and thought it would be a fun thing to do our last night in Flordia,we had just got married that Tuesday and thought it would be nice to have a romantic evening alone. It was all going good until we actually sat down to eat food (which was excellent)they sat us in the back corner directly under the AC vent which was set to 64. My wife was freezing the entire time so much so that I had to take off my dress shirt and have her wear it. When I asked if there was something that could be done or if we could be moved to one of the other tables or onto the 2nd floor, I was told sorry not much we can do about it. So I thought maybe dancing will warm us up and lighten the mood. Nope, the dance floor was set up at the front of the boat where it is a complete cluster, and the dance floor is smaller than a geo tracker. There was only room out there to dance for about only 3 couples. Then when it came time to eat we were LITERALLY the very last people to recieve our food. I was told it was because there was trouble in the kitchen the chef got confused. Which was confusing to me since we had let them know what we wanted to eat 3 weeks in advance. Since our last night was pretty much ruined after we finished our food we asked to be let off the boat since when had docked. Well we had to wait for the captian since he is the only person that could let us off the boat. Which we waited on him to get done talking at the top on the steps on his cell phone to let us off the boat. This was a very brutal and over priced experience will never do it again nor would I advise anyone else to do it not worth the money.

    Let's start with the bad. I ordered the crabcakes. They were terrible. I picked over my dinner. Worst crabcake I ever had. Don't bother with the photo. It's not worth it at all. The picture was grainy; not sharp at all. A camera phone could have done a better job. The Good Everything else was great. The musician was great. The appetizer was nice. I ordered the hummus and spicy tuna dip. The wine was good. I had merlot. We were seated with other people. Awkward at first, but they turned out to be cool. We danced, went to the top and took pictures (ourselves), looked at the water, laughed and chatted with people at our table, enjoyed the wine and appetizer. It was a good time. The waiter was great too. They just need to correct dinner...immediately, especially those crab cakes.

    fine dining dancing cruise

    Although I was under the impression since it was a romance package I would be seated by myself I was disappointed but all the guest did get along well and include my kids. My steak came out wrong!but when it came out right it was absolutely the BEST steak to ever enter my mouth my husband had the crab cakes and he loved them too so the food was a HIT!!! And I was very disappointed we missed 45 minutes of the cruise for fireworks. I was led to think we would be cruising during the fireworks. Other than that we really did enjoy it. My kids ages 8&11 enjoyed it also. Thanks

    Dinner Cruise

    We went for our 15th wedding anniversary, and it was amazing. Wonderful service, awesome food, and great entertainment. My husband had the filet mignon, and I had the fresh fish of the day. They were both so tasty. My husband said his filet was the best he ever had! We had a great time dancing to the DJ's tunes, and we enjoyed the fireworks. It was a great 15th anniversary.

    Lovely evening

    Our family loved our evening onboard the Solaris. Dinner was superb. Our family ordered the beef tenderloin, crab cakes, the catch of the day, that was swordfish and a child's meal. Everything was delish! My filet was fork tender and cooked to perfection. Our cocktails were great and we enjoyed dancing and walking around the boat. The staff even order a full moon for us! It was a fun evening and I am sure on our next trip to our favorite vacation DESTIN-ATION...we will go again!

    The trip started out really well but wasn't pleased when dinner was served. As soon as my husband bit into his potatoes, he pulled a long strand of black hair out of his mouth. Disgusting! He asked for management, the owner came out took food back and brought a new plate. With the new plate, meal wasn't prepared correctly so a third plate was brought out. When he came back out with first new plate, his poor excuse was nobody in his kitchen had hair that color. Really????? The hair was cooked into the potatoes! After seeing hair, no one in my party had an appetite to eat, evening was ruined. He initially offered to refund the plate but when he found out it was purchased through trip shock, he said he couldn't reimburse it. So he took only one $9.00 drink off the tab which was not comparable to the over $80 we spent on the meal. Totally disappointed!
