    Dinner Cruise

    The dinner cruise was excellent!! The food was superb (I am very picky about what I like). The entertainment was good as well. I will definitely go again!

    Great anniversary experiance

    Meal was excellent, could cut the steak with a fork, wait staff were professional and served entire meal quickly, entertainment was a fantastic sax player who played during the meal and then played recorded dance music for the remainder of the cruise. My wife said that this was our best anniversary ever and it was our 53rd. I think that about says it all.

    Great evening together

    Great food, excellent service and lots of relaxation time to go up top on the boat after dinner service. Wish the cruise would have left an hour earlier so we could have been cruising during the sunset, but not a huge deal. Very romantic evening.

    Fine Dining Dinner and Dancing Cruise

    I would suggest this to any couple. IF you love Sunsets, music and great food, this is for you. It was absolutely amazing. Top deck was open for viewing and dancing. We saw all the phases of the sunset, and danced to the live music. It was a little confusing figuring out where to go once we parked, we were not sure if we were in the right place, but all worked out and it was my FAVORITE part of the trip with my HONEY!!!

    Dinner Cruise

    A memorable birthday evening! Food ... steak was good but the instant mashed potatoes not so much. Service was good and the fireworks were a great end to a wonderful evening.

    We all had a great time on the Solaris

    We've been vacationing in Destin, Florida for 24 years. I figured we've done everything there is to do in Destin. Before we left on June 3rd I did some research on Google. "Things to do in Destin, Florida." After finding a the sandestin fine dining dinner cruise I booked it. The music, the food, the drinks, the scenery were all spectacular. We will do it again for sure.

    A very romantic aniversary

    We were so blessed with our cruise. The staff was warm and friendly and even in the short time we felt connected to the other passengers due to their skills. I did not realize that my husband was having reservation and so was I of "being in a stuffy environment". That was not the case. It was very relaxed and we both had a great time!!
