Would give this a zero but there isn't one. This was one of the worst dinners ever. Drinks are grossly overpriced. Our waiter, Justin, spilled 2 drinks on one at our table, then pretty much ignored us the rest of the cruise. We had to...More

This dinner cruise brought back memories of Hawaii. It was so relaxing. Service was excellent. Best salad dressing I have ever had(I think it was called Blood Orange Vinagertte). Dinner was a buffet. Lots of drinking and dancing. Smooth ride. Crew served hot chocolate chip...More

No. They have dates that are black it, special celebration nights, private parties, etc. Best way to find the date you want is to call.
