We opted for the lunch cruise, and found it to be everything it was expected to be. The Captain and crew were true professionals, the Chef and his staff were equally impressive, presenting excellent quality meals in a timely manner. The only negative, if you can refer to it as such, was that as the cruise got underway the Captain... More

This cruise has it all. A fair price, great food, choice, and great sight seeing. For just $19.95 per person you can enjoy a two hour cruise down and up the inter coastal all narrated by the knowledgable and respected captain. My wife and I chose for lunch chicken cordon bleu and I loved the lightly blacked salmon both reasonably... More

Nice boat ride from St. Pete's to John's Pass. The boat ride is charged separately from the dinner, so you can just take the boat ride if you want. The menu has a good selection of dinners (approx. $30-$35) which includes appetizer, salad entree and dessert. The food was all good, though the salad was rather generic, and there was... More

We are incredibly happy with our decision to get married on the Starlite Sapphire. From the initial conversation to the day of, the staff was fantastic. They were always friendly and helpful with any requests we had. They accomadated the ladies arriving a bit early due to transportation. We chose not to have cake and they provided dessert for us....

Food was excellent! Is was very tasty and hot. Service was very good. Negative comment: We were seated next to the door to the smoking area. Every time the door was opened we got the smoke. We will go out again but for the lunch cruise. The night cruise of course is dark so you don't see the beautiful homes... More

We did the lunch cruise. Overall good trip, good food, friendly staff, although a bit slow service. Would had given a higher rating except that the table they seated us was at the back of the boat and we could not hear anything from the speaker system. Maybe we got the Groupon seats.

He even took group pictures of all of us before we got off the ship. The scenery was nice, even though it was an overcast, rainy day. The only down fall I can think of is we didn't... More
