“Awesome time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We reserved second floor of this cruise for a wedding rehersal dinner. The food and drinks were fantastic, as well as DJ, staff on board and Ms. Mandi who helped me with all the details. Thanks Calypso Queen for making my Son and Daughter in Law's wedding rehersal a hit!! I would recommend this boat to anyone. I can't wait to go again. K. Alonso

“Company Christmas Party- Only Good Reviews”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

We just had our company Christmas party on Calypso Queen tonight and everyone had a great time. The food was good and plentiful ( pulled pork and beef were very good), included beer, wine, rum punch and soft drinks. We had the boat to ourselves and had 134 onboard and there was plenty of room to move around and dance, chat and mingle. I didn't hear anyone have anything negative to say and the staff were most accommodating. I wouldnt hesitate to book again for a private function. Thanks for a great Christmas party!

“Terrible food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

For a $ 35 meal you can get much better the food was gross. I'm very dissapointed. The Dj really seemed to love his job which was great. The boa could really use a deep cleaning. Soda is complimentary but seems watered down.

“October 2012”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

No dolphins, cold food, couldn't hear the narration of the captain. I don't recommend this cruise. Could have been the bad weather of the day, but still would not recommend it.
