We were invited to attend this cruise to help celebrate a friend's birthday, and we were not disappointed. Fun, food and very entertained. We booked the R & B midnight cruise, and it were so much fun. The music were great. All I can say is thank you for the invite, and we will be back.

The ship is beautiful, the staff attentive and friendly and the food was terrific! Served buffet style, the variety was decent. There was a dj with good music provided, as well as games and a couple bars available. The... More

We booked in advance through Groupon. The week leading up to our sailing looked as if a storm was going to hinder our sailing - we lucked out and the rain held off to well after we returned. Due to the high probability of rain the ship was not even 50% full. We were seated with a group of 6... More

Easy to get to and a fun ride. They let you eat when you arrive so the stations are not crowded with people all eating at one time. The food was really good and desserts...fabulous! They had a DJ that kept the ride lively. We went upstairs and sat on the sofas and had an enjoyable visit with our group.

Staff was very efficient, food was average & DJ during the whole cruise. Better if you pre-pay for the whole trip - especially with available coupons. The tour of Norfolk Naval Base was both educational & beautiful. The weather was perfect & we met a lovely local couple celebrating their anniversary. Also an area for a private party that did...

Went on dinner cruise with friends and all enjoyed. The ship looking a little worn but the staff was great. Our server checked on us often to make sure we had drinks but noticed others had small desert plates brought to their tables we were not offered any. The food is buffet-style with a good choice and flavorful. The DJ... More

The outside staff knows how to handle a long line, Boarding was very quick. Drinks were way over priced. Food was less quality than Golden Corral. Wait staff was good. Ship is looking a little old. Smoking on the fan tail did took away from us getting a view of the harbor, even though you could go to the third... More

We did this on our last night in Norfolk, on Sunday evening. We had a good time, and the weather was beautiful. Several people were celebrating birthdays or anniversaries. The food was good, and I highly recommend calling the number for tickets AND buying drink tickets if you are going to drink alcohol! I had a drink using a ticket... More
