Very easy to book this tour. We were greeted at the dock by the staff and escorted to our table. Very nice boat and very clean and well maintained. Exceptional and very friendly staff. Our meal was absolutely wonderful. All four in our party loved their meal. Wonderful tour of the bay. I highly recommend this tour for a very enjoyable evening. We were able to go on the upper deck outside and view the sunset. It takes a combination of every crew member doing their job well and this is most certainly true for this tour. Thank you again for a wonderful evening dinner/cruise.

Our waiter was great, we waited for nothing, even if we were up walking around he made sure we were well taken care of. Food and entertainment was good. The night we went there was a Christmas boat parade, it made the boat cruise even better.

3 star rating: Worth doing October 2013

overall the crew was fantastic! The ship was clean and very comfortable. The food overall was not great. The chateau was very good, the cornish hen was not crisp and almost underdone. The rest of the meal especially the hor dourves as we could not tell what we were eating and the taste was just edible, the chef should not try to be a master chef, needs some practice. The time it took for the whole trip including the time to dance was wonderful, just right! Great job Captain! However, would recommend it to family and friends.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this April 2016

I treated my parents to this tour last night. The dinner was very good, and well worth the price. Unfortunately, we were not told ahead of time that there was a large wedding party booked for the same time. Essentially, we were 'wedding crashers' - add ons only to the larger group, and treated as such. There was no room for anyone other than the wedding party on the dance floor. We could have rescheduled to any other night, had we known. Sadly, we were not given the opportunity. Clearly, the operators of this tour place dollars and cents well above the enjoyment of their passengers. For this reason, I would absolutely NOT recommend this tour.
