My husband and I enjoyed a great night on the water. The food was great, and the atmosphere was entertaining. It was a relatively inexpensive evening. We will definitely cruise again.

The cuisine should be available on their website. Being in the travel business for years, I can tell you that the food is top notch for a dinner cruise. They have packages with which the meal is included. . Drinks extra.
