This is something I always wanted to try, and more so on Mother's Day. Finally I gave it a try today and what an experience. We loved everything; the royal class treatment as you board, the spectacular views, the delicious food and of course, dancing. Gotta add...excellent weather. One great Mother's Day gift I gave myself. If only we moms... More

We went on the Easter brunch cruise and it was the best Easter we have ever had. The food was really good, with a lot of variety for everyone (even picky kids). After brunch, we went to the 3rd deck and enjoyed a DJ with kid friendly music, dancing, Easter bunny and Easter egg hunt. Only downside is that our... More

We did this dinner cruise several years ago and while sailing around Tampa Bay, watching the sunset while dining was very enjoyable but the food back then was marginal. However our recent dinner cruise was very good. Dinner was EXCELLENT!!! and of course the ambiance of our short cruise was no less fantastic than our first dinner cruise aboard the... More

We did the lunch cruise for a business outing. Short cruise there were mixed reviews on the food, my opinion it was very institutionalized food. Definitely, not gourmet or chef made in the kitchen.

In order to see the Air Force Thunderbirds and other fine aviation displays at the MacDill AFB Airfest we chose to take the lunch cruise on Yacht StarShip. The cruise left right on time and the buffet was available immediately. The food was appetizing and well displayed and the carving station was a very nice addition. The ship sailed for... More

This boat takes you on a trip in the Tampa bay whilst being served a 3course meal. Our waitress was very attentive. We had paid extra to have window seats which was well worth it.The meal was of a particularly high standard and we thoroughly enjoyed it. After the meal we went up to the top deck and sat on... More

I attempted to purchase half off tickets through Living Social for "Rock The Yacht" featuring a 3 hour ride with a live band. The Living Social deal fell through and I paid $96 for three people instead of $45. The band (country) was a mediocre 3 person band, nothing special. The "buffet" was extremely overpriced, $15.95 for One plate and... More
