We took this cruise on a Sunday evening and it was well worth the money. The menu was 5 star cuisine and the wait staff very attentive. We ordered, then walked around the upper deck and our server came and let us know each time our course was served. The live entertainment ( lady singer) was really enjoyable. We saw... More

We chose not to dine and just enjoy the sightseeing aspect of the cruise. We found that the cruise was just so-so. The narrative was difficult to hear on the open deck. We cruised at a very slow speed so the distance we went was not that far. The return part of the cruise was even slower - it seemed... More

We took the luncheon cruise yesterday on the Starlite Sapphire. It was a relaxing two hours. The scenery on the intra coastal waterway and the commentary by the captain was very interesting. The food was excellent. The ship was very clean and the crew curteous.

We are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the cruise. The day that you cruised with us, we had a Theme cruise also scheduled. With those, the parties who book (usually large tour groups) board early and enjoy a portion of the morning on board while listening to the themed music at the dock, and pay a different rate... More

We boarded the ship, on time, for a family birthday party, greeted by a very friendly staff. While the ship was gliding the intercoastal waters, we were served an excellent lunch. Jason, you were a terrific server! I had to remind myself that we were on a ship, it was such a gentle cruise! Free to roam about, our on-board... More

The food was very good, the staff very attentive always asking if we needed anything. We were not confined to out table and were able to walk around the ship freely. A really great value, will do it again next time I'm in Florida.

Out of our entire vacation to St. Petersburg and Key west, this was our favorite night! The food was well prepared and delicious, our waiter always came by in case we needed anything.

This was a perfect evening, we really enjoyed ourselves and our dinner mates. We went on the New Years dinner cruise and we were sat with another couple from Michigan, they were great.
