I enjoyed this lunch cruise. DJ was great! He played a diverse playlist that kept everyone entertained. The food was good-not 5 star or gourmet but not bad at all. What made it even better was the that all of staff were so nice! You can tell they thoroughly enjoy the work they do and they like people because they were definitely spreading joy! Keep up the great work! You’re appreciated!

This was for my husband's birthday and I'm happy that I gave him a birthday experience that he thoroughly enjoyed. The DJ was on point; the food was fantastic and the waiters/waitresses were so friendly. I learned a few dance steps on the dance floor; thanks to the hostess turned dance instructor. Thank you very much.

Overall, the cruise was nice. The staff was great, very attentive, and was really good about getting our entire party to sit together. However, I was a little disappointed with the food. It was just ok, nothing spectacular for $80. At 11:30, I was expecting brunch instead of lunch, but that I miss read on my behalf. Overall a very family, friendly environment, very classy. The DJ was great! He played a good variety of older and new music. He paid special attention to birthdays and anniversaries, which I thought was great. I would definitely do this again.
