Traveler Reviews

Reviewed by: Arniesdad, United States of America, November 2016

We really enjoyed the October 21 Lunch cruise. We couldn't decide between the Spirit and the Odyssey cruise. The Odyssey was a barge with a restaurant on top. This was a real ship with multiple decks.
The food was good and the waiter was AMAZING! ALL the staff was outstanding. We really enjoyed that the boat was not full for the lunch cruise and so we could find places to watch the shoreline go by where we were not in the middle of a crowd. We wished there would have been more explanation of what we saw along the shore. There was some, but it was minimal. The DJ was good but not pushy.

Very enjoyable lunch cruise.

The lunch cruise was so much fun! The food was awesome and it was so wonderful to see the staff on the dance floor. Thank you for a great experience.
