Review of Sandestin (Destin) Fine Dining Dinner and Dancing Cruise

  • James Marquardt USA Nov 12 2017 04:02am

    Meal was excellent, could cut the steak with a fork, wait staff were professional and served entire meal quickly, entertainment was a fantastic sax player who played during the meal and then played recorded dance music for the remainder of the cruise. My wife said that this was our best anniversary ever and it was our 53rd. I think that about says it all.

    Great trip!

    We had a blast. Took my girlfriend on the 3 hour for her birthday. The Filet was so tender and we added the shrimp. Both were great. I had the fish of the day. It was a grilled mahi. I'm not a huge fan of mahi but it was grilled perfectly. The entertainment was great during dinner and after dinner it was more of a dance floor and line dancing thing. We had a good time.

    Sunset cruise

    Had a wonderful time, great service and crew, food was better than expected. Met 3 very nice couples at our table since it was only my wife and myself we were seated with them. If I had any complaint at all it would be parking, just make sure to get there early.

    Great view - food took awhile to be served

    The view was beautiful and staff were attentive. The only detractors were that the food took over an hour to get to us. The jazz music was good for dinner but should have switched to DJ-provided dance music quicker. The food was good and drink service was prompt - loved the key lime pie martini!

    We loved the dinner cruise and recommend this for a night out with your spouse! This is coming from a couple with no children, and as much as we love them we don’t see the need to bring them on this boat. There are so many more kid friendly options in Destin, and a romantic dinner cruise shouldn’t be one of them. With that said, the food was great. I would love more options for dessert, because i don’t like cheesecake but my husband said it was good. The drinks were also great! I think this cruise is priced fairly, and the entertainment made the night. We wished for more people like us that liked to dance because i think that would have made it even better!

    Great Experience

    Very nice experience. We’ll be back! It was really considerate that the Captain went back for the couple that was running late.

    Not Happy

    The trip was nice the service was ok but they added a $127.00 gratuity to our bill that we were not told about until we got our check and they would not adjust it so we want be back the service was not worth that much of a tip not even close.
