I boarded the Solaris on May 14th, this was not my first time on the dinner cruise. Boarding the boat was late so no appetizers were offered, no pictures were taking at all an the food was hard an dry! I have always had an amazing time but this time SunQuest disappointed me!!

My son decided this would be the perfect place for his wedding purposal. In order to keep it a secret I was unable to be on the cruise, however we were waiting at the dock when they got back. He did hire a photographer to be on board in order to capture the moment. All the staff on the SunQuest were very helpful and anxious to do whatever was necessary in order to make this a memorable experience. He called in advance and spoke with the event planner on the cruise and she helped him work out all of the details. Now my future daughter-in-law has a wonderful memory and a great story to tell about the night she got engaged.

The staff, facility and delicious food made this wedding into a magical evening of fun and festivity. The day started with sheets of rain coming down, but the company's wedding planner didn't let herself, or us, get flustered, and when the weather cleared at the last minute, everything was set up on the top deck quickly and beautifully. The captain was an excellent officiant. The suggested steel drum musician/DJ made it an entertaining experience. Dinner service was superb. These folks know what they are doing.
They even helped pack up all the cake cutting knives, toasting glasses etc. that needed to be brought back home, and the guy who drove the golf cart to transport us back to the parking lot was as pleasant as could be at the end of a long event.

My beautiful bride and I throughly enjoyed our evening on "Solaris" - SunQuest Cruises. Their motto seems to be dine, dance, cruise. The food was very enjoyable and a decent wine selection was available. The music consisted of a single artist playing guitar with some other background instrumentation and was piped throughout the three decks of the yacht. Our only regret was that the dance music we would have enjoyed dancing to was played more while dinner was being served.

We had a gorgeous evening on the water and got to watch the sunset over the lake. You can get up from your table and wander around the yacht. There are ample photo opportunities.

We would certainly do it again and recommend to others. Be sure and heed their warning to get there early enough for parking.

Since we weren't entertaining for Turkey Day, we thought this cruise would be perfect...it was! Our table mates were fun and from all over the country. The food was good, the drinks were great and the scenery was fabulous. The boat is large enough to wander around and the decks are the perfect place to take in the sights and hang out with new friends...we can't wait to go back.
