    The Signature Dinner Cruise was very nice. It was an adventure. The staff was very nice and caring. The DJ played great music to prompt everyone to the dance floor. Although they serve healthy food, we honestly can say there is some lack of choices to say the list. Salads, mash potatoes were great if you understand what I meant. Beside that easily fixable hiccups, we highly recommend this tour to anyone who want to have a different experience to go ahead and book now. You will not be disappointed. Dress Code always make a difference. Thank you.

    , Jul 2022
    Good food. Good trip in general but it felt overpriced and 1. The trip says 3 hours but was less than 2.5 hours. More like 2 hours and 15 minutes. 2. I was sit away from the window and was told I needed to pay more than the $125 for a window seat. This was not suggested on the website when I booked 3. They included a 22% tip as they charged me for the drink. The bill I got did not say that but my bank notification said so. I thought it was a thing I wanted to do in a while. It was fun but it is expensive and those are my issues with it

    Ship was a little tired on furniture in upper and lower decks. Better music for dancing, not just one one genre.
