Eating diner on a boat sounds wonderful. Unfortunately this adventure is not worth the steep cost (upwards of $60 a person). The boat lacks luster. Overall the boat ride was the best part. The food was poor. I'd pay $12 for the meal at most....More

The cruise and he service were wonderful. The food was average at best! I think that the problem is that it isn't prepared on board? It tasted like it was warmed up, perhaps even microwaved just prior to serving. My raviolis were tough & had...More
