Boat was great, as was staff. Food was not exciting and the dessert table was a huge disappointment. Go and enjoy the boat ride.

It is a two-hour cruise though you board at 11:30am and food is immediately available. is tons of food, enough to satisfy most palates,... More

We attended a wedding aboard the Lady Katharine Mystique from Haddam, CT. It helped that it was a gorgeous day. The ceremony was held on the top deck, and the reception was in the enclosed section on the main deck (there is another reception area in the lower level where the galley is). We boarded at 11am and docked at... More

Went on the 2 hour cruise with a party of 28. The staff was very professional and friendly and the food (buffet) was out of this world. Hesitant about buffet food on a cruise boat we were all impressed with the quality and assortment presented (beef tenderloin, grilled salmon and stuffed chicken breast) along with an assortment of salads and...

Our tour group took the lunch cruise. The food was wonderful as well as all the servers. They had music as well which made the 2hr cruise a really perfect day. Our cruise went out of Charter Oaks Landing, CN.
