My mother, my 6 year old son and I had the most amazing time! Plus the Captain let my son sit in the Captain's chair and steer the boat for a bit. I will recommend this company for many others to visit! Thank you so much and hopefully see you again soon for the Sunset Dinner Cruise next time.

It definitely wouldn't be worth it if the weather weren't as beautiful as it was. I took my boyfriend on the brunch cruise as a surprise date. I'd gotten the Groupons. I didn't want to pay extra for a window table, so we got assigned a table kind of in the middle of peoples' walk way. The employees felt bad... More

We got a groupon for the Sunday brunch cruise and am so glad we found that!! We lucked out and had a beautiful sunny day. The food was good and we loved relaxing and seeing the sites

Our first Waterways cruise was a brunch cruise. My husband and I treated my parents for my mother's birthday. The food was excellent, as was the service. The boat was very nice and we all enjoyed ourselves. When we ordered tickets, we had the option to pay extra to ensure a window seat. I went ahead and paid extra, only... More

We paid $139 per person which was supposed to include appetizer, dessert and a glass of Champaign. There were no announcements that food was ready (we were on the upper level). By chance we saw that people had appetizers, but I don't believe anyone upstairs got dessert since there was no way to know when it was ready.

Small group of friends decided to get tickets to the New Years cruise. It was good we watched the space needle fireworks ...only suggestion for next year is to install a dance floor

Went on the New Year's Eve Cocktail Cruise. The boat was fantastic and very professionally run. Had a great time dancing to the DJ's picks. The appetizer buffet & dessert buffet was scrumptious. Great bartenders - buy your drink tickets ahead of time to make the transaction quicker. Great view of the fireworks over the Space Needle & the obligatory... More

We booked a holiday dinner cruise on the Olympic Star. Our party was approximately 40 people, and we chose the buffet style menu, so that it could be a little less formal. From boarding, to disembarking we had nothing but a positive experience. The crew was very attentive, the captain was very informative, the bartenders were knowledgeable, and the food... More

The biggest drawback was the temperature once the food came out. It got so warm you couldn't see out the windows anymore. The food was good. The captain gave an interesting guided tour. The staff was really nice and got our daughter onto the bridge to drive the boat. She was in heaven.
