My compliments to the staff on my recent SunQuest Cruise. This was a New Year's eve party cruise. Everything was covered. There were plenty of party favors for each table, the food was delicious (my wife had beef tenderloin and I had lobster ravioli), the wine selection was was more than adequate, and a champagne toast at midnight. We watched the fireworks on the boat champagne in hand. It was a great evening all the way around.

We recently moved to the Destin area from Ohio. I couldn't help but chuckle at the comments about how "cold" the 50 degree weather was. I spent a good amount of time out in the "cold" on deck enjoying the lights of the Emerald Coast. This will become an annual tradition. Great job to all. See you next year!

We were really excited to go on this dinner cruise. It was from 7pm to 10pm. We had a coupon buy one get one half off which was good. At night you can't really see anything it is so dark, but at least it was just after Christmas, so there were lights on the buildings. I didn't feel the food was up to par for what the cost was. The worst of it all is that when you got your bill, they suggested huge tips. The cost normally is $70 which I do not think is bad for dinner and a 3 hour cruise, but they charge you a tip on the total amount which I didn't really feel was right. The entertainment was nice. It was a one man show, singing, playing instruments and he was fun. They took your picture as you came on-board and wanted $15 for it.

We went on the boat with several couples for our Christmas party and it was a perfect restaurant for our group. The entertainer was great- he had a variety of music so we danced a lot! The food was excellent- everyone enjoyed what they ordered!

Sorry but trying to park was a nightmare. It was Labor Day weekend and the resort was over crowded. No parking at the Warlf. We had to park at least a mile away and walk to were the boat
was launched. Once we arrived the crew was very friendly. The meal we chose was very good
Some of us had chicken,,some steak and some shrimp.. The entertainer could have been better.
All in all it was just OK. Long 3 hours. Maybe we were just tired
