Valentines day cruise

This was our first dinner cruise in Florida. The free parking was nice, right next to the dock. The staff were all friendly and nice. Our server was new and lagged information and smooth service. She was nice though. The dinner of beef tenderloin, mashed potatoes, 12 green beans and 2 shrimp was... read more

We took our 2 mid twenty year old and their significant others for a night on the town . We all enjoyed the meal, food and waitress was wonderful. We then headed to the upper deck for some fun dancing and romantic slow dance like the web sight says. We had one Cupid shuffle then the DJ catered to a... More

Was on their valentine's day lunch cruise. Boarding was a little slow but the rest of the cruise was very enjoyable. Food was very good. It was a plated lunch and MUCH better than expected for this type of "banquet" event. After lunch they had a dj on open air top deck. Servers were very good. Great going during the... More

With hundreds of thousands of people crowding into downtown Tampa for the Gaspirilla invasion, I can't think of a better way to be right in the thick of the action. All you can eat and drink on a three hour cruise that is right next to the pirate ship headed into the channel! I would have rated excellent, but the... More

Touted as Tampa Bay's Premier Dinning Yacht, my mother and I decided to select them as our 2014 New Year's eve event. As requested, we arrived early, yet even then we could not access the parking spot right where the ship docks. Not a major problem as there is a huge parking building just a short walk away, except (and... More

The service was excellent. Our waiters, a husband and wife team were outstanding. Funny, engaging, easily one of the best restaurant experiences I've had. The food was strange. The red sauce paired with my seafood dish seemed out of place. It just seemed like a lot of the dishes that we ordered were odd. The desserts were good. The drinks... More

Lets start with the staff who before, during and completion of the trip was very attentive/pleasant. Our ship (since they have more than one) was nice and clean with outside seating that allows for great views throughout the cruise (NOTE: at night, hard to see outside the ship due to the reflection of interior lights on the glass). The buffet... More

We had our company holiday party on Yacht Starship and it was excellent! The food was great, especially the bread pudding, and the service was great. Everyone in attendance had fun seeing the sights and Christmas lights and listening to great music on the top deck. Thank you!
