It was easy getting to the boat and being scanned in. I was annoyed that my bottle of water was taken from me and a packet of snacks; after all, I have already paid for the trip and lunch, there was no sensible reason to take these items especially as they are NOT SOLD on the boat. That “policy” was ridiculous. The water on the table was filled with ice and had a questionable aftertaste. Another downside is: if you are in a group, you must book all your tickets together in order to be seated together. The tables are pre-arranged, which should have been made clear. Despite that, we had a very good waiter. He was polite and seemed genuinely pleased to be working there. This made the experience a very positive one. Not all persons we encountered were welcoming. We got underway and tables were called to the buffet. It was pretty quick after setting sail and service was smooth and simple. Food was nicely flavored. It was an enjoyable experience.

My party was placed on the upper level and our table was in the back by the bar. I appreciated having a reserved table. The window sill was way too high, so the view was not accessible from your seat, you'd have to stand up to see out the window. Serving was in order by table location to maintain crowd control. The buffet was alright, it was a good variety. The appetizers were amazing, though. I recommend the shrimp cocktail and the crab dip. Drinks were delicious and the portions were large. The DJ was entertaining with the line dance playlist. The entire crew were approachable, professional, accomodating, and friendly. There was a photographer with an affordable packages. The dress code was not enforced at all with all the guests. Guests were still allowed on board even with open toed sandals and jeans. Dee was an amazing server, she was very friendly and made us feel at ease. The water was choppy, but you could not feel it at all. My friends and I had a lot fun. Thank you.

I had no problem with booking this cruise and even found parking nearby. I found the assistants on the ship very delightful and professional. They help to make it a very pleasant experience. The food and music was great also! Will go again, next time with a group as this was our anniversary! Great job everyone!
