I was invited on a wine cruise tonight and what an amazing time. The Cavatappi wine was paired perfectly with the delicious food which included crab cakes, caprese salad, rack of lamb, pork chops ending with a light sorbet. I bought 2 bottles of the White Blend and will be buying the San Pietro Supar Tuscan to braise oxtail. Only... More

Tip: Take this Tour ONLY if it is not raining. How much you enjoy this tour is directly related to how nice (i.e. WARM) the weather is on that day. One of the things that shapes Seattle's unique character is water. The City is surrounded by water - salt water, fresh water.. all coming together in a system of Locks.... More

Shirley T, Owner at Waterways Cruises, responded to this review

Hi Kelly, I really appreciate the 5 star review, but after reading your complete review I think you may have intended the review to be for another business in Seattle. Waterways Cruises is, in fact, a dining cruise business with four dining yachts that cruise on Lake Washington and Lake Union and not a "tour" business. We are known for... More

This sounded like an exciting event. Two members in our party had dietary restrictions and the Waterways website actually asked for specific information so I made sure I included the info. Unfortunately the meals they were served didn't adhere to any of the dietary restrictions. It was so disappointing and really annoying to have to point it out. In addition... More

If you would like a placid cruise around Seattle, this is your trip. If you would like a good dinner, this isn't your trip. The food was average,bat best.; the service was halting.

My family enjoyed our cruise on Dec. 26, but we were not pleased with the Internet messages we received before we sailed. First of all, before booking, I checked with a representative about the Sunset Cruise and was not told that my 2 & 3 year old grandchildren were not welcome. Two and a half weeks after booking and paying... More

I was disappointed because it wasn't a Christmas Lights Parade cruise. My boys were looking forward to it and seeing the lights but there were no lights. We parked by a couple boats that had a "concert" but that was it. I spent a lot of money for it and wished I hadn't.
