Easy to get to and a fun ride. They let you eat when you arrive so the stations are not crowded with people all eating at one time. The food was really good and desserts...fabulous! They had a DJ that kept the ride lively. We went upstairs and sat on the sofas and had an enjoyable visit with our group.

Staff was very efficient, food was average & DJ during the whole cruise. Better if you pre-pay for the whole trip - especially with available coupons. The tour of Norfolk Naval Base was both educational & beautiful. The weather was perfect & we met a lovely local couple celebrating their anniversary. Also an area for a private party that did...

Went on dinner cruise with friends and all enjoyed. The ship looking a little worn but the staff was great. Our server checked on us often to make sure we had drinks but noticed others had small desert plates brought to their tables we were not offered any. The food is buffet-style with a good choice and flavorful. The DJ... More

The outside staff knows how to handle a long line, Boarding was very quick. Drinks were way over priced. Food was less quality than Golden Corral. Wait staff was good. Ship is looking a little old. Smoking on the fan tail did took away from us getting a view of the harbor, even though you could go to the third... More

We did this on our last night in Norfolk, on Sunday evening. We had a good time, and the weather was beautiful. Several people were celebrating birthdays or anniversaries. The food was good, and I highly recommend calling the number for tickets AND buying drink tickets if you are going to drink alcohol! I had a drink using a ticket... More

We were waiting to board for a class reunion. The staff at the kiosk and the ship personnel were friendly and courteous. The decks were clear and the ramps were stable. The dinner food was varied and abundant. I enjoyed watching some other passengers dance. The music wasn't to my taste, but it was loud. If in Norfolk this is... More

This doesn't get any better. From start to finish, this was a memorable scenic adventure. Even our server AJ was a pleasure to have serve us. He was friendly attentive and prompt. The food was good too! Despite the buffet style dinner it was very flavorful. Finally, the scenery was SPECTACULAR! The view of that Norfolk Bay and the naval... More

Early Dinner cruise along the Elizabeth River was very enjoyable. Buffet was delicious. Enjoyed the DJ and music. Had thought about paying extra for a table by ourselves but decided to take whatever seating was available. Glad we did! Sat at a table with other people and had great conversation and laughed a lot!
