Was disappointed with the overall experience. The bathrooms smelled bad. The windows were so fogged up that paying extra for a window seat was a waste of money. Most of the tables are positioned along the windows, so most likely you would have a window...More

This is my must do every year when I visit Seattle. The food is excellent, especially the omlets. Narration by the captain is great. The servers are very attentive. Wonderful way to get amazing photos.

Your basic sunset dinner cruise, but the staff was lovely, the food was really good, and the views were staggering. No need to purchase the add-ons; it's complete as is. We really enjoyed it.
