It is elegant to sit by the window and watch the view while eating lunch with your friend. We received a complimentary champaign and that was nice of them. Food is great as well as the desserts. I have recommended this experience to my co-workers. I think they made a reservation for Mother's Day.

We've been on several cruises with Waterways and all were excellent. The food is delicious and the captain provides fascinating commentary on the areas the ship passes.

Our Waterways cruise was perfect! The setting was intimate and elegant. The staff were professional, kind and attentive. The captain was gracious and informative and provided historical information, pointed out sites of interest and included personal sailing experiences. The food was hot, delicious and plentiful and the overall pricing was very reasonable. Lastly, the full bar was an added surprise.... More

The crew went well out of their way to make this a very special occasion. They welcomed and followed through with a special request of mine without a second thought. Very nice cruise for those romantic nights with your significant other!

This was a pleasant surprise. I had never done this cruise, only the Argosy Cruise on Puget Sound. We were greeted by the captain with a single rose for all the Mothers on the ship. The ship was well decorated and in good condition. The staff was very pleasant and greeted everyone as they came on. The brunch was buffet... More

The best way I can describe this trip is with the word excellent. Every aspect of the cruise was excellent. From the beginning, we were greeted by the staff and crew with friendliness and a clear effort to make us feel that this was a special time just for us. The ship was beautiful, the actual cruise was nice, the... More

We had drinks & snacks, it was just an all around good... More

I never would have guessed that the surprise (Kirkland) Sunday brunch cruise for 20 folks would fall into place as it did. I booked a couple of months in advance and the staff both at the phone desk and onboard were awesome and helpful. The omelet chefs did a great job and the quality of food was fabulous. All of...

Saw Groupon for this one day and thought why not. I've been on two of these cruises, once for lunch and the other for brunch. Had a great time. Staff is super friendly and the food is fantastic. It's a great deal if you can score a Groupon. However, it's a bit overpriced if you pay the going rate. I... More
