My wife and I took night cruise via groupon special. Could not stay on first floor due to diesel fumes. The buffet was a joke, frozen dinners have more taste. The ten dollar gambling deal was only valid on table games and you had to match 10 dollars of your own money to use ticket. I have been deep sea... More

We had our family visiting us from overseas and we decided to take them on a cruise and we thought this would be the perfect opportunity. We were all very excited but when the boat anchored in the deep sea the choppy waves make us all sea sick. My wife, sister-in-law and niece kept throwing up and couldn't enjoy anything,... More

Look, most people writing these reviews must be snobs. Your paying $10 for a 5 hour boat ride. They maynot have the "looses" slots around as they claim, or a buffet that matche the Vinoy (again only $10) but it is a heck of a fun time for 5 hours. If anybody has ever been to Vegas I would compare... More

Don't believe their web site which advertises the "loosest slots in town". I have been on it twice. In about $120 worth of slots my biggest win was $10 once. The bonus rounds are crap too. The match play system is not really a match at all. Stay away. The blackjack is shady too.

I surprised my husband of 22 years with this Casino/Dinner cruise. I bought the tickets through Groupon If it wasn’t for the great friends that we went with and a few entertaining dancers, it sucked 100%. The boat did not leave until 7:20-7:25 pm. There seem to be 450 people on this 500 person capacity ship. You are rushed onto... More

Made reservations for a cruise for Tue, 7/16, got a message at 2 pm on 7/15 that cruise was canceled, no explanation. Made another reservation for a party of 8 on 7/22 for a Tue. cruise on 7/30. Drove to ship on 7/30. No cruise scheduled, did not get a cancellation call. Be careful with this firm.

Great 5 hour get a away. 20 bucks for a boat ride and food.. Then I brought an extra 200 to gamble with, we had a blast. Cheap way to drink, party, gamble and eat.. Hardrock would have been way more expensive.. $5 blackjack is ways good:). It's not Ceasars but a good time never the less...

Lady's Night was awesome. My wife has free drinks for the 1st hour of the cruise and the Band was awesome (Treefrogs). This ship is very clean with 1st class employee,s. The slots are loose as well. We will be cruising on this Casino soon.
