    Dinner cruise for Mid-Life Gurus

    Crab cakes acquires such great taste. However, salad was poor standing. The waiter failed to share cocktail signature *specials. Including the reserved to hold from serving appetizers and any menu before 7pm. I was confused for the dinner cruise - I thought I could buy what I want. This is not a dinner cruise for millennials.

    Sandestin fine dining cruise

    Excellent experience, food was excellent, staff were professional and attentive. The one man band Mr Hall was incredible. He sang music from 50,s on up with a voice like I've never heard, very entertaining. The fireworks at the end were an added bonus. The ship was a pleasant ride, no rocking and the view spectacular.

    If you miss this, you are wrong!

    Excellent experience from start to finish. Booking is simple and attended to by a staff who cares about every detail. Arrived at the boat a little early and enjoyed cocktails at the seaside bar, boarded the boat on schedule to a wonderful crew. This timing had to be practiced as every part of the cruise was perfect. The entertainment flowed exactly with dinner timing and where the boat was relative to the sunset and evening dancing. Excellent crowd and the meal was served as professionally as any 5 star resteraunts. Food was incredible. Portions designed to feed, not stuff and cooked to perfection. Can't wait to do it again!
