    Dinner cruise

    It was nice cruising but when we sat down for the dinner, there were several roaches. Lost my appetite at that point and couldn’t wait to get back. Not worth the money.

When I booked, I left a comment I’m the comment box telling them that my wife and I were celebrating our anniversary.

    Dinner Cruise

    This was a wonderful experience. Starting from the reservation process to the dinner cruise itself. The staff was very friendly and did their best to make our cruise enjoyable. The dining area was very tastefully done and the food was heavenly delicious. Our server was very attentive even though she seemed quite busy. The icing on the cake was the festive "make you wanna dance music " and the "creep up on you" hurricanes.
