Lets start with the positives, the singer was fabulous. The staff was very friendly. For the most part, the food was good. Now the negatives, a strawberry in my fruit and cheese tray had mold on it. A storm was coming in so we did not leave the dock. At 9:00 PM I asked to pay my bill and get off the boat. Within 5 minutes the boat was moving and I could not get off the boat. It was dark and we could not see anything. I could have cared less about taking a cruise at this point. The refund policy was if the boat moves at all then you do not get a partial refund.

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.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review
