This dinner cruise was a nightmare. The air conditioner broke and it was way too hot. The food was sub par. Not worth the price.

The service was terrible. There was some kind of broken pipe which made the entire area smell of sewage. The staff was not only unapologetic but not on the slightest bit accommodating. There was an area of the boat which was clean, air conditioned and fresh smelling and they would not allow us in that area. Furthermore the manager on... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening on board the Odyssey cruise! We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff and nothing was too much trouble for them! They stopped for a chat, got to know the diners and we even received a special mention after telling our waitress that we were on our honeymoon. The food was divine! We had a trio... More

The views from the dinner cruise were magnificent. The food was good but not great. The environment and live music made the cruise that much more enjoyable. They have a dance floor near the live music, the dress code was formal, and the growd contained mostly adults 30+ and quite a bit of 55+. There was a stain on one... More

I booked a cruise on Odyssey about 12 years ago and it was a terrific experience. Very classy, great food, upscale environment - a really high-end dinner and cruise experience, which is expected from shelling out $300+. Now, fast forward 12 years to 7/30/16: the dinner cruise has gone way downhill. I spent $400 for a dinner cruise with window... More

All inclusive night tour was awesome. The food was all great and plentiful. You might have to get a drink from the bar even though our server wants you to order through them. Get up and have a drink outside. Have a relaxing time and dance, enjoy the cruise. Not a bad seat in the house.

This tour sounded like such a wonderful evening. Boy was I wrong. The lack of sufficient air conditioning was just the beginning. They were completely understaffed. Couldn't get a waiter so waited in line 20 minutes for a $21 beer and awful cocktail. Then the promised sit down dinner was a horrible buffet. And where were all the great sights??... More

I was very disappointed with this cruise. It was my mother's birthday and this is what she wanted. We paid an additional $100 for guaranteed window sitting only to be placed directly in the sun on the hottest day of the year. The food service was slow. The servers repeatedly brought the wrong food and drinks to our table. Although... More
