Had a blast! Buffet food was good, rum punch was refreshing, & variety of music was great! Country, oldies, & a few newer songs. Also a couple line dance songs & macarana! My 22 yr old daughter & I had a great time! You arrive and they take your picture then you proceed onto boat where you will find your table with your name card on it! They started sending people up to buffet line at 6:45-ish (cruise started at 7, boarding started at 6:30) After we were done eating we immediately headed up to the 3rd observation deck where we stayed the rest of the night! Great views & much cooler with airflow. While the cabin area is air conditioned it got very warm when buffet food was being served!
Staff was friendly. Overall we are glad we went!

We decided to take the luncheon cruise, figuring it was daylight, and the evening cruise isn't really a "sightseeing" trip. It is a very relaxing and enjoyable trip, adding to the pleasure as drinks are provided (adults) as well as the buffet. Now, to be fair, the buffet is typical buffet fare, generally bland, overcooked, but there were some interesting notes. Their potato salad had an interesting tang, similar to a Creole influence. Their pasta also had a bit of a tang. The chicken with mango sauce also had an overtone of mango, not overly heavy. The rum punch was a bit on the weak side, but when I commented on it, suddenly it got a bit stronger. It's also unlimited. If you want a relaxing trip where you can just sit back and do nothing but observe, this is for you. Dolphins are a plus if you see them. Masks are required when boarding, when moving about. They can be removed when at your table and when dining. Overall it's well worth it.

Capped off a fun filled girls weekend on the Calypso. Food was good, parking was convenient and we danced the night away after dinner. A few people in previous reviews commented that the DJ didn’t okay a good mix of music…that was not our experience. So. Much. Fun.

My only critical feedback is that the cost of admission is a little high for those not consuming alcohol. Our group included 2 moms, 1- 20 year old and three teenagers.

Our tour was a cold, Sunday night in January. Don’t let a chilly temp stop you!

It was our last day in Florida and the family needed to check out of the Sheraton and get ready for our mid day adventure with the Calypso Queen. We drove around and waited for the 12:30 departure time. Please be aware of the first Problem on this adventure, parking is limited next to the harbor so get there early. Do not wait until the last moment since the surrounding Parking lots are $25-$30. When you get there WAIT until you're ready to board..why? You will need to pay for Parking ticket but it will only give you 30 minutes. Do not be like me trying to keep paying and holding up the line. Get your ticket, take Parking ticket to the boat and they will give you a four digit code so you can come back and pay for 3 hours. As you walk on board and prepaid, your table will be labeled with your party's name. Be aware there are three levels and you could eat first two levels and it's universal seating so you might eat with strangers. The servers are friendly and do a good job with customer service. Second FYI, at the end of cruise we left $30 in cash as a tip the cost for five of us $150+. Once you can get in and eat and drink. The food selection is limited with 4 main dishes, salads and sides. Third FYI, get your food quick because servers will put it up quick which isn't cool. As we traveled the shoreline, we enjoyed other boats, pelicans, dolphins, etc with Caribbean music. If you go to third deck its open and are subject to the sun. Final FYI dont be a dummy like me wear sunscreen all the time. The sun and water are deceiving beautiful and will get you, hence my current name Lobster Boy. The quality of food and anarchy with Parking I give it 3 stars but it is a great family experience

This boat needs some TLC! It’s old and rusted! The food (buffet) was not good! The Rum Punch had bottom shelf rum which tasted nasty! All the beer they had was Bud & Bud Lite. The White Wine was okay. I typically don’t bother with a bad review on something like this, but it was not worth the $104 we paid for the two of us. We did enjoy the opportunity to make new friends on this voyage. We made the best of it! We did tip the staff $20 because it’s not their fault they work on a nasty boat! We believe that whoever owns this boat in Clearwater Beach, FL needs give it some much needed updates. Even if they have to charge a little more, I think their guest would appreciate this! Good luck!

NOT a sunset cruise!!! When on the evening cruise upon the Calypso Queen for the buffet of dinner and for the sunset. We were both very disappointed in the cruise. I did my research on this company and boat before booking making sure I booked the best option to suit our interests. This cruise was advertised to us as a "sunset cruise". While we did cruise around, we were docked before the sun was even set. it was very disappointing and extremely upsetting especially by the time the boat docked and we got off the boat, we rushed to the pier to see the sunset and missed it! The calypso queen docked before the sunset even happened. We did not even get a chance to admire the sunset because I thought we were going further out to get a better look at the sunset. All the other vessel companies were out there in the water until after the sun finally set and then made its way back to the dock. We are very upset and feel we made the wrong decision going with this company.

The food was decent and the beers were free. There was someone pointing out buildings along the Cruise but it was very hard to hear.

The cruise was very nice, the staff very helpful and courteous. Dinner was good. Had wine, beer, and pinch included in the tour fee. All you could drink!
Why I give a low rating is this: As promised there was DJ and dancing music, after dinner the music started and then it became a nightmare for my husband and myself. It was so LOUD that we couldn’t even hear each other speak sitting together. I was never so happy to get off a boat as I was here!! If I had to spend another hour on board I would have swam to shore. It was all middle age to older ppl or families with small children on our cruise. It was geared more to spring breakers! They love that kind of stuff. I will never go again for this reason. Way to LOUD!!

Make it non smoking, could not go outside without the smell of marijuana. The staff smelled it and did nothing. The food was what you would find at a Golden Corral, the rum punch was not the best and you had to pay for dessert. Will never do this again! The only good thing was the views. Oh yeah I forgot the DJ played mostly horrible music!

The review on here giving 1 star and saying it wasn’t great, was spot on. The food is awful. Bland, slop. Could have better food at McDonald’s. Rum punch was watered down basic pour rum. Had one glass and couldn’t choke down the other. The upper deck would have been more fun if they didn’t allow smoking or weed. If you’re into that then this is the boat for you. The music was bad. It looks like it would be a fun party dinner cruise, but lacked on fun and food. I think the reviews on here must be friends of the cruise line or people with low expectations. The first bad review got it right. Save your money. Not worth it. Basically you’re paying for a boat ride. They are saving money by skimping on food and cheap liquor
