We took our Goodyear Rubber Products employees and spouses on the StarLite Sapphire and had a GREAT time! The food was absolutely top notch and the service was, too. We would STRONGLY recommend this as a company leisure or team building activity. FANTASTIC JOB, StarLite TEAM!

I would like to start off by saying that the Starlite Sapphire was the perfect venue for our ceremony and reception. Our waiter Jay, was awesome. He bent over backwards to make sure your drinks never were empty. He did a great job explaining the menu and let us know that he was here for us, whatever we needed. He... More

We found this through Groupon and thought we'd give it a try. We were definitely NOT disappointed. The service was first class. The food was amazing (5 stars) and we are foodies. The views are relaxing and keep your attention. The onboard entertainment was ok but honestly they could have just had music playing because even through she sang well,... More

We enjoyed our 2 hour cruise in the intracoastal waterway at St. Petersburg. The trip was very affordable, only 34 dollars for a couple. Of course, we bought a meal also, and the food was great. The captain narrated the tour and pointed out landmarks as well as mentioning the history of landmarks in the area. I would do this... More

Absolutely stunning boat! Music was fun and the service, great! We opted to not eat dinner on the boat and just enjoyed the 2 1/2 hour cruise. Would highly recommend it.

Great service and dinner is more than just food, it's an culinary event. The boat is clean and beautiful. The only drawback is the entertainer on board. . .music is a bit dated but was acceptable.

This was a company function for approximately 100 people. The yacht was well staffed and the food absolutely delicious. Everyone had nothing but great things to say about their experience.

As expected the views of the sunset aboard the ship were breathtaking - however the real surprise of the evening was the quality of our entrée - the starter and dessert were below average but all of our entrée...
