Well where to start! Very rude people! The service was very poor! The only nice person was the top deck bartender. He was polite. They announced all these winners, but we didn't see anyone get excited because of winning! Sorry but I won $2400.00 you would know it! Very over rated! Never again!

The gambling is not bad, but the buffet is not that great. The Buffett is $18 pp for all you can eat. But what are u going to eat; salad, mashed potatoes, meat loaf, baked fish, bow tie pasta and desserts. It also cost $25 pp to get on. So a nite out for a couple will cost you $86... More

Thank you for your review of your recent cruise with us. We had had choppy seas lately due to tropical storms going through our area so the rides have been a little more rocky than normal.

We live in Calabash and whenever we have guests we take them on the Big M. Last night we went on Ship II and it is getting too expensive. We are seniors but $18/each for buffet is outrageous. Also, we gamble the entire time and even need to pay for a beer. Also, entertainment was awlful!!!! We enjoyed the male... More

Thank you for your review of your recent cruise with us. Our buffet prices have remained constant over the years, even with the cost of food increasing, as we don't want to burden our customers with extra costs. Perhaps you visited with us in past years on a Senior Day and had a discounted or free buffet before? That would... More

It's a small ship compared to others I have been on. The staff was friendly and the ship was clean. We had a good time however the rocking bothered my wife a bit.

There were four of us that took this casino cruise, once we returned many more wished they had gone, it was on the things to do list, what was the problem. It was a half hour drive from the resort that we were staying at. Before boarding, the fee is $20, and you go through a mini security check. Once... More

Haven't won a lot but tend to hold my own. Try to get to Vegas every year but not sure this year. Boat is about an hours drive from home; convenient, pleasant, friendly people, and don't feel they are out to get me. Son is visiting from NY and seems like a great day to spend some time together.

First and last visit. Very disappointed. Not enough variety of machines. So called "buffet" was not worth the $13 it cost. We had lunch buffet which was serving 11AM-2PM. We tried to eat at 1PM, there were only a couple of lunch items(rice, gravy and a meat).

This was sort of fun, nothing to write home about, but not as bad as it could've been. Probably because we wore scopolamine patches. We still wound up rather ill feeling, the ride really is that rough even on a rather calm day. We were better off than the dozens of passengers that flooded the top deck and stairwells to... More
