I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately I couldn't see the sun set because of the rain, but the night view was very beautiful. In addition, the guide talked about the history of Vancouver in an atmosphere where people next to me could easily talk, but the conversation between the passengers was more lively. There were only two Japanese passengers, and we didn't have to worry about anything special, and the server in charge was assigned a Japanese person, whether it happened to be intentional or not. I have the impression that all the staff, including that one, were very wonderful.

This Dinner Cruise is well worth the money! We had a very enjoyable evening, beautiful scenery, and very helpful and attentive staff. The other thing that I would like to note is the entertainment: simple guitar and drum duo, the singer had a killer voice - and it was not overwhelming. Would do again!

very well organized

We had very nice moments on board. The staff was very friendly and professional. A very pleasant experience with live music of the best quality that I have heard in a long time. The dinner was wonderful and the service amazing.

Charming. Great way to spend an evening. The sights from the water are spectacular. Captain and crew were excellent and the music grand. Very unique way to view Vancouver.

Food was better than expected, good entertainment, good drinks, unique paddle wheel boat.
