Fabulous evening. When you meet you think omg so many people but there are several boats. Unless you are in a large group everyone gets a window seat. The musical trio were fantastic and the food was delicious. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves . Would recommend.

We were lucky that we had a warm beautiful night for this cruise and enjoyed it very much. The dinner is served as a buffet inside the cabin with a good assortment of tasty food and after dinner we went up on deck to see the views better and take pictures. There was a musical trio playing who were very good and took requests. Someone came around and took pictures of each couple and came back at the end of the cruise to sell them. The picture was only a few dollars and we purchased ours as a nice souvenir. Definitely would recommend the dinner cruise.
