The dinner cruise crew was very very friendly. The entertainment made us feel like we were on a dinner cruise circa 1970's, from the songs to their wardrobes...it was really cool! The food was mediocre but the views were worth a million bucks!

Our specific cruise was steak and lobster. Didn't see any young children on board. They may have different cruises for couples versus families. I would call and check with them.

Very casual. almost anything goes as long as you are presentable. I saw some people dressed up and others like my husband and I that were very casual. I wore capri pants and a nice top.
