I bought a dinner cruise to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and am incredibly impressed by the overall amazing experience that I has a chance to engage in. I bought the cruise through GroupOn, and the birthday package from Starlite to follow. Boy, am I not disappointed. Not only was the food made to order, not a buffet style dining hall... More

Very nice ride in the water ways, awesome view to relax , while dinning .. Our experience was great ! The food takes a while to come out , late dinning on the way back.. I prefer to dine first, going out , not when returning.. Over all , I'm going back soon..

Thank you for leaving us your comments! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your time aboard the StarLite Sapphire Dining Yacht!

We were on the July 3rd cruise for our 25th wedding anniversary celebration. The 2-3 hours experience was a mix, though the foods were very mediocre, the waitress service was very professional and kind, and the view coasting through the Tierra Verda channel was fantastic. I was a bit worried about getting sea sick before boarding but it turned out... More

We booked this cruise on a recommendation. Everything about the evening was 5-star, from the yacht, to the dinner, to the scenery. Great gift to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. The crew is courteous and professional.

Server (Mary) was excellent, food was out of this world. The only thing that disappointed us was being initially seated at a table where only half of us could see outside. This was corrected by our server immediately and we were able to all enjoy the sites as well as the food.

The waiter and Captain found out my parents were from MI and here as a gift from me and my husband for Mothers/Fathers day. They done everything they could to make my parents feel special. I couldnt have asked for a better experience. Wonderful food, wonderful server, very knowledgeable... only wish there were more soft drinks and coffee. Diet drinks... More

Took my 15 yr old grandson on the lunch cruise. Very nice food selections, good service and informative Captain gives information about the area. Wish the cruise was a little longer though. It's a lovely venue on a hot day when you don't want to be out in the sun.
