    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

    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!

    We had a good time, crew was great & friendly! Our waitress attentive! My only problem was finding the marina! My GPS took me to 98 in the middle of the street! You need more detail direction for out of towners! Also a sign at the docks to let folks know your at very end of it! Once we got on board it was smooth saling!!!

    Special night with work team

    We had 13 employees take the cruise. We had so much fun talking and being with each other. The staff was accommodating to our groups size. The meal was very good. I would have liked to see more of the area but the views we had were nice.
