I loved every minute of our Valentines cruise. The food was great, the service was impeccable, and we really enjoyed the music selection and views. I would highly recommend. Justin in sales was incredibly helpful with our booking as well.

Terrific experience. Excellent food and drink and stunning views. A little on the pricey side but worth it. Was a little surprised that we did laps around Lake Union and didn't spend more time out in Lake Washington. But with all the holiday lights on, the city skyline was beautiful. Warning that this is essentially a couples cruise. I made... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise from start to finish. A perfect evening of fine food, wine and of course the fireworks from the Needle. A perfect opportunity to spoil my wife with rose petals on the table, half a dozen roses and the chilled champagne all perfectly delivered as requested. The staff were attentive and a special thank you to... More

Our group of eight had a great time! The wait staff was outstanding, the food was really good and the Canoe Ridge Wines were awesome! I would highly recommend the wine and dinner paring cruise.

A wonderful evening was enjoyed by the three of us. The staff was thoughtful, considerate and attentive to all guests. The food was delicious, especially my favorite, roast beef. On our return, the captain called the port ahead of time to have the crews move them, so the Olympic Star could moor along side the dock. This made it much... More

Overall, the experience was very nice. The quality of food and service is fabulous. Only one negative is the windows on their boats become fogged up and the visibility outside becomes less than desirable. I noticed they have fans, but they don't do the job. Other than this one challenge, I recommend this company.
