This was an enjoyable cruise for our anniversary dinner. The sunset was nice, and the musician who played songs had a good choice of songs and a great voice. The food was decent, but there is room for improvement in the preparation. The seats need a little more cushion, and it is not well advertised that you will be seated with another couple. It was nice to get to know someone else, but this should be put out there from the beginning.
We saw more whales on this trip, up closer, than we did on our whale-watching tour! The staff were efficient and friendly. The onboard musician was excellent! I also loved the sit-down meal style rather than a buffet where youre balancing your food along with yourself. You get three free drinksplenty for most of us. Full three-course dinner was good, overall. My husbands main entree beef was good, while mine mahi mahi was meh.
Now for the not-so-goodThe ship looks very little like the pictureit is pretty run-down looking. I was looking forward to a fairly upscale Saturday night type environment based on the picture of the ship. It is in need of a paint job, the seat cushions look about ten years old and have lost their cushioning, it just looks like it all needs a facelift. If ambience isnt that important to you, this sunset sail is definitely worth the money.
This was a beautiful tour, the ocean view at sunset was a sight to see for sure. The dinner was decent, however the boat was pretty rocky so walking around was definitely a challenge the boat in the picture is not the actual boat on the cruise. Our waiter kept us entertained with random attempts at cracking jokes. The only thing I would change is the music. There was a live guitarist but his song choice and singing style was very monotone and made my mother and I very sleepy toward the end of the cruise. We were ready to go to sleep before docking. Maybe something more upbeat would be a good idea for future reference.
It was very overpriced for what you got. It also should not really advertise that there is a dance floor. We were a party of 6 and there was not even enough room for the 3 couples to slow dance at the same time. Also, when you charge 200 for two people for an all inclusive experience, it is a little tacky to bring out a check presenter for a tip. Trust me, I do not take tipping lightly. I worked in the service industry, as a tipped employee and as management for 20 years.
