The cruise itself was great. The history of the port and surrounding areas was interesting. Don't go on this cruise ship expecting 4-5 star restaurant food quality. The green beans were not steamed properly. The mashed potatoes were not fluffy. The rice on the fish was hard. The fish fillets were too thick. The drinks were very costly. There was... More

I went on the dinner cruise and it was very nice. My only complaint was that I had paid in advance for the premium drink package that includes 4 tickets for premium drinks and when I get my tickets I only had one ticket. Had to wait out in the blazing sun for someone to call and get the rest... More

Service was outstanding -- everyone was friendly, I was wished a happy birthday by every staff member I encountered on the way in including the people who took my ticket, the hostess, and our server, who then offered me a drink on the house to celebrate...

We were in Norfolk for a reunion and our group was taking this dinner cruise as one of the activities. We were told to be at the boat by a certain time – our group was going to board first. That didn’t happen. A wedding party and numerous other people boarded before us. Boarding was slow because they were taking... More

This cruise was very relaxing and surprisingly served a rather good buffet! It also provided a much better tour of the naval base than the naval base provided! It was fun and we all enjoyed it. The bathrooms were a little stinky.
