Reviews of Sandestin (Destin) Fine Dining Dinner and Dancing Cruise

My two Sisters and I were visiting from Texas and so looking forward to this great Dinner Cruise. However, our dining experience was horrible. The Air Conditioner was not working at all so it was terribly hot and humid. Additionally, the food taste and quality was way below what we expected; the three of us had the Seafood and the shrimp tasted boiled with no seasoning or cocktail sauce available and the crab cakes tasted very fishy. We were unable to eat because of the heat so we took it home but threw it in the trash because of the flavor. We had to spend the majority of our time on the top deck where there was at least a breeze. The Captain and crew were very pleasant but our evening was still ruined. We only received a 50% discount. The sad thing is we can never relive our time or Sister Celebration! This cruise is what we were looking forward to the most so, as you can imagine, it was very disappointing. We truly feel we should be fully compensated for the Cruise cost. We only received 50% off our drinks/food as well but we did not have the full experience.

Too loud, but great food!
Tha acoustics do not provide adequate sound to the aft of the boat. All we could hear were the other guests. But not the music. I thought it was a sunset dinner cruise. It turned out to be a dinner cruise. Food and service of food was excellent.

A bit chaotic
We expected a night of dining and a little dancing as we sailed chasing the sunset. Our meal was fine and our server(s) were fantastic! Once dinner was over and music played, out came what felt like a school yard of children, onto the third deck. They were all about running jumping, just being kids. We like kids. We just expected a quieter evening swaying in each other’s arms.

Sunset cruise
I would definitely do it again but only in spring because we really didn’t see a good sunset. It just got dark too fast.

Fun & Romantic
My sweetheart and I decided to try this out and it did not disappoint. The people, entertainment, food and ambiance was more than what we expected. However, we didn't know that reserving a window seat was a thing until after we were seated and for an extra charge of course.. It was fine as it got dark very quickly and it really didn't matter. Nevertheless, the views from upstairs and overall ride was amazing.

We were definitely not happy AT ALL that we were charged $50 extra for a window table when that was all that was available and everyone had a window table

Romantic, Fun, Beautiful
We loved this for our last night on vacation. Service was great, dinner was good, music/entertainment was excellent. The Captain was very friendly and spent time getting to know us and explaining how Captaining a ship works! I would definitely do this again. Lastly the view was worth every penny!

I went for my birthday and it was amazing. It wasn’t too busy, available parking and the staff was great. They were very pleasant and helpful. The food was great! You cruise for 3hrs. Drinks were pricey but nothing we didn’t expect. I definitely will be back.

Sunday evening dinner dance cruise
They greeted us as soon as we boarded. Very nice. Took pictures that you can purchase for 15.00. Many varieties for cocktails for your choosing. We ordered frozen strawberry margaritas which were 15.00. 20% tip automatically added to your final bill. No cash only credit cards. Dinner was very good. We had braised beef with mashed potatoes & asparagus. Cheesecake for dessert. Attentive waitress. Ambiance was good. Live music was nice during dinner but more fun and better music selected from the bands DJ.. Band could be improved on. Three levels on boat for you to enjoy inside or on top outside. We loved the cruise. Left dock on time for 3 hours - returned at 9:30pm. Everything was prompt and timely. Once dark it was beautiful on the bay almost magical. I would highly recommend thst you do this!!!!. But i would suggest not to bring babies. Most people were couples or groups of 8. We had 1 baby on board which was a little distractive if you know what i mean. For evening cruises I would not recommend children under 10. You would not regret taking this dinner cruise for a beautiful evening.
