Service: I really enjoyed the Captain Cook Dinner Cruise's night very much. Unfortunately, the night view was not as beautiful as I expected. But the atmosphere of the cruise was nice with good wine, dinner and songs. Thank you for a dreamy night.
Product: Appropriate price

Service: I would highly recommend this cruise. Staff were very friendly, ship was fantastic. The only thing is the food portions were very small so if you're going to go on this cruise make sure you have something to eat before hand
Product: For ghe amazing view it was wrth every dollar

The ambiance inside, the route, the musicians were good. The service crews were also great. However the taste of the food was ordinary. Though the menu sounded great, in actual, there was nohting special about the taste
