This was not the enjoyable cruise tour we were hoping for. First of all when we called to reserve, they wouldn't honor the groupon which was advertised "as good for any Friday or Saturday cruising". We were told that they only take "groupons" on Fridays....More

For our purposes, the food was good. We had appies - sliders (good), nacho's (good). There was a salmon dinner that I saw others have, but didn't partake. It was not a buffet, but you could order individual apps.
