    The boat was very nice. Dinner and service was great. Was a little sad I didn't get my picture but other than that every thing was great.

    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!

    Solaris Sunset Dinner Cruise

    The crew was friendly, amd the entertainer was good. Of the 3 meals our group ordered, one came out cold, the shrimp and grits used an unorthodox tomato basil sauce. The chicken dish was thoroughly enjoyed by the third person. The drinks were good. We would have appreciated better signage at the dock to find the ship.

    Accommodating and great food

    The staff was very accommodating! The food was delicious, and the Yacht was beautiful. The only downside is that that DJ was really annoying. He was good at playing the saxophone, but I wish he wasn’t so obnoxious and ending the cruise with club music with added sound effects. Otherwise it was perfect.

    We had a amazing time, the only bad thing I could say is that we didn't want the night to end.

    The day before our cruise we received a phone call asking if we wanted to upgrade our experience with a private table near the window for an additional charge of $30. Since we really wanted to enjoy our experience with our party of four, we agreed to the addition charge. When we arrived, we noticed that everyone had been seated in a private table arrangement thus appearing that the ship wasn't full, so they spread everyone out, and increased revenue by charging customers to do this. Secondly, our waiter took our drink and appetizer order to only later serve us our drinks and apologized that they had "run out of the appetizer we had ordered." The table that ordered after us, served by the same waiter, received the appetizer we had ordered. Lastly, the food was okay, but not worth the... read more

    Cruise but no sail due to weather

    Due to weather, we were not able to cruise. However the food and crew were excellent. They offered to discount our tickets. Entertainment was great. Would try it again, but hopefully the weather will cooperate
