We had 80 people of all ages on the StarLite Luncheon Cruise. It was easy assess for all, very comfortable and the staff were great. The food was the best food we had all week. The cost per person was such a fantastic deal and a great way to spend the afternoon.

My Fiancée and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary on the starlight sapphire yacht. Considering that we'd already celebrated our 1st anniversary, we decided to purchase souvenir glasses, our picture and over priced mediocre dinner. We opted out on dinner this time around. We sat upstairs. Waited for acknowledgment and direction for seating. Finally we are spoken to.The server on... More

Food was excellent and a touch of class to have the chef come to each table and ask if the food was to their liking. Dining service was great. The only problem we didn't like is to see so many children on a dinner cruise. I know you have to make money but I wish you had a dinner cruise... More

Entertainment was bad karaoke at best and poor sound system. Meat was good but "stuffed shrimp" was 2 very small shrimp, size of small shrimp cocktail, laid on top of a small crab cake ball. Waitress had from no personality to bad personality with poor service. Boat ride itself was ok.

The cruise was great, and the food was delishious. Great service beautiful views while cruising. Only negative was that the bottom level we ate on was very hot, needed to have air conditioning cooler. We walked up to second level where a weeding party was eating and it was much cooler on that level. I am sure that because the... More
