So I would give that a thumbs up. The food is another story - please keep in mind the average price for all meals offered are... More

Disappointed in the quality of the food. After dropping $100 on dinner for my date and I... I would expect the quality to be mouthwatering. It was not...my date's fish was dry...she could not eat it and my pork chop was tough. My romantic dinner with my new friend did not turn out as I had intended... The views are... More

We sailed out of St. Pete on a beautiful day. The staff and crew were very good. The lunch was tasty, with a menu that had options. The boat gave you the option of enjoying the view from inside of outside. We were able to see incredible homes along the waterfront and were even more fortunate to see Dolphins playing... More

We boarded the Starlite Sapphire for a lunch cruise on a cloudy, cool day. The staff go above and beyond to provide excellent service. The views from the ship are absolutely lovely. You can stay indoors or venture out on to the bow or stern. We saw beautiful homes along the way. The food was average but better than what... More

This cruise included an open bar, and no skimping at all - whatever you wanted, they... More
