Okay but not okay.

We enjoyed the dancing and tmjust the moods of the other guests on the Cruise! Everyone was so friendly and nice. The food was also amazing, but while it lasted. * Not to be such a downer, but my fiance and I did not enjoy the rum punch as it honestly just tasted like watery sugarless kool-aid. Even the kids kool-aid wasn't sweet at all. When we asked for straws they didn't have any and their were no coke products available to make up for the Rum Punch or the Kool-aid punch. We asked for a sweet tea and it wasn't even sweetened as they don't make sweet tea. The food was amazing but when I went up to grab seconds all of it was took away as they were cleaning up maybe 1 hour into the set. There was no dessert whi h I though was included but by all means I may have read it wrong. My 3 year old and 1 year old loved it! They couldn't stop dancing and running around and just playing with the other kids aboard! I say if you plan to go maybe call ahead to see if their coke products are working and maybe take your own cups or straws for you kids! And get atleast 2 or 3 plates of food before they put it up! Otherwise it was a pretty decent cruise. Not giving 5 stars just because of all the negatives we experienced by by all means others may have experienced better! Whi h we could have had the full option to do so as well! We visited June 19th, 2022 for the dinner cruise!

The night we went the temperature was in the high 90s and the air conditioning was broken! People were sweating and miserable. We should have been told as we were boarding that the AC was out and given the option of a refund. People with medical conditions should have been pre warned! They opened windows but even out at sea it wasn't enough to get comfortable. On top of that the food was just ok. Nothing to brag about, nothing spectacular! The sunset from the top deck was pretty tho, but that's thanks to Mother Nature.

The food was well prepared, the boat is a nice size and was well air-conditioned. Only issue was the speaker system is old and you could not hear the tour guide unless you went out on the observation deck.

Food was good, especially if you’re like me and don’t like seafood. The servers were really nice and helpful and it was a really good experience. The only thing that I didn’t like was how miserably hot it was on the boat. Everyone was sweating. AC would have made this wayyyyyy more enjoyable but nonetheless, I had an awesome time. :)
