    It was Ok

    It was a good getaway for a dinner, but overall I was disappointed. I was uncomfortable as soon as I walked into the dining room. Folding card tables and hardly any Air Condition made for a frustrating experience. Only relief was outside in the humidity. We were told it would get cooler, never did. The food was subpar with the hype given. I would love to try again, maybe there will be better conditions!

    Perfect amount of relaxation

    I can not express this enough, every aspect was ideal for a romantic evening. It says dinner/dancing the dancing is completely optional for you guys who don’t like to dance and/or who get guilted into dancing by an over excited DJ. Lots of jazz played through out the boat. apps, drinks, salads, entrees served in a very timely manor. Lots of roaming areas to get fresh air. Very relaxing evening!
