We took a lunch cruise on the Calypso Queen for our son's birthday and it exceeded all our expectations. The food was excellent. There was a variety to satisfy everyone and the food was hot, fresh and delicious. The caption did an excellent job with his narration of the local sights. The service from our server Kim and bartender Beverly... More

We hosted a fundraiser aboard the Calypso Queen. With seventy five guests, we booked the whole boat and used the DJ service. In addition to lunch and bar service, we held a Chinese Auction. The staff was most helpful in arranging tables for our items and providing the microphone when needed. Buffet was hot and the bartender kept the drinks... More

We took a group of 56 people on the Calypso Queen Sunset Cruise Dinner last night and it far surpassed our expectations. It was EXCELLENT. FANTASTIC SERVICE. Reservations were handled professionally. The waitress and bartender were friendly and bent over backwards to be accommodating to everyone; and the DJ was one of the best I have ever encountered. She played... More

We took the afternoon cruise rather than the night because we wanted to see the scenery. We bought the combo cruise and buffet for $21 after using a discount coupon that we got from the tourist office on pier 60. This is good value as the cruise alone was about $15 if my memory is correct. Ship was about half... More

After we made it through hideous traffic, we boarded the ship, looking forward to a nice evening. The first disappointment was the bar. The rum punch tasted dliuted and weak The buffet wasn't much better. First, it is located in the narrowest part of the boat and therefore is very cramped. Food is, at best, average. There was no fruit.... More

We went on the dinner trip this evening and had a GREAT TIME! The service was very good. For the price you really can't beat it. You get free beer, wine, rum punch, and soda. And the buffet had plenty of options to choose from! The food tasted very good and they never ran out. Despite what some of these... More

This is by far the worst experience I've had on any tourist boating rides. We took the sunset cruise and the food was SO bad that it came out of both ends. The food reused from previous days and it tasted reheated. I do not think it was properly stored at adequately when not in use. The food tasted reheated.... More

Went on the Evening Tropical Party Dinner Cruise for a birthday party last night. Overall the party was okay. The food was okay for a small buffet. The people were very friendly, at least until it got towards the end. My biggest complaint is that they advertise a 2-21/2 hour cruise. We left at 6:10 and returned at 7:50. Makes... More
