We went on this ship it was really nice seeing all the nice houses along the way to the ocean. The food was really good. We really enjoyed our time on the ship.

I was on this cruise for a rehearsal dinner, and it was fantastic. The food was very good and the staff was great. The tour of Tampa Bay at night was beautiful.

When my husband and I booked this, I was skeptical. But it was an awesome experience! The food was great as was the service. So much fun to see Tampa from a different view. We would definitely do it again.
