night out

the casino is nice and very friendly staff. The food on the other hand is not worth the $18, also you pay for your drinks not complimentary.

I went on the M (2) - the smoking ship - 5 times during the week of 8/14/2016 and had a blast. The dealers were great and very professional. Most had experience from land based casinos and were very friendly and knowledgeable. It takes about 45 minutes to sail to international waters before you can gamble and 45 minutes+ on... More

My wife and I went on this boat (notice I didnt say cruise....because I have been on many "real" cruises and this isnt even close) 8/16/16. First of all the VIPs reserve the newest slot machines for themselves and leave the rest of us with video screens you can't read, play buttons that dont work. Ashes and debris were on... More

The joy of trip advisor is that everyone is entitled to their own opinions and we encourage any responses, good or bad! (a business cannot fix what they do not know is broken). We appreciate your review and are sorry to hear you think our casino is a "scam" Not sure what that means, as gambling... is a gamble. Sometimes... More

Thank you for your kind review of our casino. We do take pride in the level of customer service as given by our staff on both ships. Buffet menus do change nightly, and for those that opt not to partake in the all-you-can eat buffet, we now offer Pizza by the Slice and deli sandwiches after the buffet closes. Also... More

My husband and I were vacationing and decided to go on this dinner/casino cruise. We boarded the 5:30 boat. The views were really nice. We had to travel 3 miles off shore before people could start gambling. Once the boat reaches 3 miles it moves at a slower speed and that is when people started to get sea sick. There... More

We took the evening cruise. The bar is open as you wait to leave,so sit back and enjoy the views on the ICW. Be prepared for rough seas. We seen plenty of passengers not able to cope with the seasickness.

After reading other reviews, my wife and I were skeptical of this attraction and actually deferred it on earlier visits to N Myrtle. Now I wish we hadn't. We just returned from our evening dinner cruise, and both of us agree it was worth the visit. I've been to Vegas more than a dozen times, Biloxi in it's prime, and... More
