We went on this ship it was really nice seeing all the nice houses along the way to the ocean. The food was really good. We really enjoyed our time on the ship.

Music was horrible, definitely not for a relaxing night on date. Unless you like headbanger music. Waitstaff was mediocre at best. A big no!

Large group of us (60) booked a lunch/dinner cruise. Food was very good full dinner. I had half a chicken. As we ate we cruised around the bay with a narrated 3 hour tour. No Gilligan experience we got back to dock just fine.

We were in a large group and were told sit wherever we wished upon boarding the ship. Our server, Lissette, did a superb job of explaining the choices of food for the day as well as what she would be doing for us. We never had to ask for anything - it was definitely one of the most pleasurable trips... More

Don't waste your money. This was a 3 course sit down meal. The service was poor, the quality of food was even worse and management barely did anything to rectify the situation. This was 2 1/2 hour cruise. It took 45-50 to get the salad and soup. Food orders were wrong and when it finally arrived the meat was cold.... More

Very disappointing cruise dinner.... reserved a nice dinner cruise for an anniversary and from what I've heard from friends who've gone on it, it's usually calm and a very nice atmosphere. However, I was NOT warned by this company that an extremely large "church party" was attending the same night. They were very loud and rude and completely ruined any... More

I was on this cruise for a rehearsal dinner, and it was fantastic. The food was very good and the staff was great. The tour of Tampa Bay at night was beautiful.

When my husband and I booked this, I was skeptical. But it was an awesome experience! The food was great as was the service. So much fun to see Tampa from a different view. We would definitely do it again.
