Dinner was great. Had chefs special, lobster ravioli. Husband had pork chop dinner. Big portion of each. Had meatball fontina for appetizer, wow was great. Beautiful views of Tampa bay. Music and dancing on 3 floor after dinner. Would definitely do again.

My husband and I had dinner aboard The Yacht StarShip on July 4, 2016. We set sail at 6:30 out of the Channelside Dock/Tampa. We dined in an elegant ambiance with impeccable service and the dinner was absolutely delicious. The music while dining along the way was perfect. Our specially ordered drinks were prepared perfectly by the bartender. Watching the... More

Music was horrible, definitely not for a relaxing night on date. Unless you like headbanger music. Waitstaff was mediocre at best. A big no!

Large group of us (60) booked a lunch/dinner cruise. Food was very good full dinner. I had half a chicken. As we ate we cruised around the bay with a narrated 3 hour tour. No Gilligan experience we got back to dock just fine.

We were in a large group and were told sit wherever we wished upon boarding the ship. Our server, Lissette, did a superb job of explaining the choices of food for the day as well as what she would be doing for us. We never had to ask for anything - it was definitely one of the most pleasurable trips... More

Don't waste your money. This was a 3 course sit down meal. The service was poor, the quality of food was even worse and management barely did anything to rectify the situation. This was 2 1/2 hour cruise. It took 45-50 to get the salad and soup. Food orders were wrong and when it finally arrived the meat was cold.... More

Very disappointing cruise dinner.... reserved a nice dinner cruise for an anniversary and from what I've heard from friends who've gone on it, it's usually calm and a very nice atmosphere. However, I was NOT warned by this company that an extremely large "church party" was attending the same night. They were very loud and rude and completely ruined any... More

After the experience my wife and I decided to splurge and spend almost 500.00 to go on the new year cruise. The cruise was nice as was the fireworks, however the food was... More

I was on this cruise for a rehearsal dinner, and it was fantastic. The food was very good and the staff was great. The tour of Tampa Bay at night was beautiful.
