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

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

We got the StarshipII for a group of 110. Excellent option! The sales manager was very prompt to accommodate our needs. Food was excellent much better than what I expected. The ship is nice with a lounge on the upper deck, a dancing area on the middle deck and the restaurant on the lower deck. We were so luck to... More

My fiance and I have been on cruises with the Yacht Starship on several occasions. Dinner cruises with their absolutely delicious food are something I wish we did more often. Recently we went on a "Rock the Yacht" cruise and had a terrific night with music by the amazing Vodkanauts. Times had on the bay with the Starship fleet will... More
