This was a real surprise to us. It was recommended by the concierge at our hotel and seemed cheesy but we went anyway. Wow - we loved it. We got to see Seattle from a totally different perspective and it was amazing. And because we were fortunate to be there during some unseasonably warm, clear weather, the views of Mt.... More

Paid extra for a window table. Come to find that they were all window tables. I feel we should be credited for that $ amount. Otherwise, fun outing with out of state guests.

Overall good experience. The potatoes and vegetables were not very good. There is room for improvement with the food.

I highly recommend the 2 1/2 hr. trip through the locks that separate the fresh water lakes and the salt water bays. Very interesting and were lucky to have a fantastic guide.

Part of my 3 star review is due to the lack of courtesy prior to boarding the trip. My family and I had bought tickets a couple of weeks prior to the trip - so of course we had no clue what the weather would be the day of our dinner cruise. It turned out the weather was horrible the... More

Luckily we purchased discounted tires for this lunch cruise via Groupon because I did not find the overall value to worth the full price cost. The boat/ship was quite small and the food was average. The best part of the buffett was the fresh fruit at the end. The cocktails were a bit over priced and the journey itself was... More

8 of us for brunch. Had a great time. All the guests were from out of state, and enjoyed the great food, hospitality and experience of our cruise.

We recently went on a Waterways Cruise with some friends. It was just a great night in the summer to be out on the water and cruising around Lake Washington and Lake Union. The crew were attentive and the food was surprisingly decent. Our only complaint were the drinks...kinda of hit or miss on the orders...but other than that is... More

We had 64 people on board for our sons rehearsal dinner . All our dinners were delicious and served by a very friendly staff. The captain did a great job in pointing out various points of interest,especially interesting to our Michigan guests. Seattle night skyline is worth the trip in itself!

Always well narrated and good karma on board. But wonderful crew and ship pale next to a mediocre meal.
