We chose to pay premium prices to take the lunch cruise during the Airfest. We knew not to expect much from the buffet (and were right), but being out on the water and watching the show with food and drinks rather than with thousands of...More

遊艇Ok,食物普通,日落很美,但是Buffet一下子時間就撤掉了,服務人員很多,但除了推銷另外付費的酒類飲料之外,沒有其他服務作用。整體費用(I paid over 70$ pp)過高,性價比不佳

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

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.
