We were from Atlanta trying to find a place for a rehearsal dinner for 65 people. Most of the restaurants in the area couldn't handle a group that large and those that could wanted to charge us twice as much as normal for a limited menu! What a relief when we called the Starlight. Five minutes from our Venue, plenty... More

This is a beautiful boat and makes for a perfect evening cruise. Our large wedding party ordered individual meals from the menu and the food was outstanding, in presentation and flavor. I'm amazed they accomplished so much with a galley that seemed so limited. We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and the dinner.

We booked this online same day as cruise. So glad we made this last minute decision. We were pleasantly surprised. The service was great and the dinner was enjoyable. I had the scallops and they were delicious. The rice wasn't great and could use some improvement. My husband had the surf and turf. The beef was so tender and some... More

Booked the noon lunch/cruise/sightseeing trip a month ahead of our trip since they have limited dates/times. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch and saw so many beautiful homes on our cruise.

Beautiful day for a cruise. Bar service a little slow. Snacks were not offered or avail to buy on upper deck, this would have been nice.

My husband and I took my inlaws, our teen daughter and our 5 year old son on a Sunday evening. Attendance was very low so it was perfect, maybe 25 on board! Everyone was pleasant, the food was very good and the dessert table was a HIT! It's very pricey but worth it just for the ambiance and water VIEWS!... More
