Definitely very romantic, highly recommend getting the “celebratory package” to ensure you get a window seat to see the city lights easier but even if you dont it would still be a beautiful experience. Youre able to leave your seats at anytime to go on the upper level deck or anywhere on the boat to see the views. Live music (DJ) was great, he offered everyone to put in a request. Food was great! Champagne was amazing, and most of the staff were very welcoming. I would definitely do this again without a doubt!

The service was excellent, the food was wonderful, the ship is beautifully maintained, and the harbor itself lent an ambiance to make the experience a great way to celebrate a special occasion.
Excellent Food! Excellent Views!

Food ruined it
Bonnie_I, Feb 2024
If you are going for the food, DONT!!!!! Everyone on the boat was complaining and it was horrible . Dont buy the unlimited drink package because they wouldnt serve my son after 5 drinks and he wad totally fine . But the upside the view was nice and the D.J mimi was excellent .
Leotilde_M, Jan 2024
Wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend the dinner cruise only for adults. Lovely music. We really enjoyed ourselves.
A good dinner choice, not a great dinner choice.
Gerald_S, Jan 2024
Overall, the cruise was very good; however, there were a few things in which I was not impressed with: (1) the meal choices (the selection should be expeanded for the sake of elegance), (2) the selection of music for the dance portion of the cruise was left with much to be desired, and (3) the ship was little dated (wish we could have been on the more modern cruise ship in their fleet).
Amazing date night with the husband
JESSICA_B, Jan 2024

Matthew_C, Jan 2024
Easy, Calm, Well organized: The food & staff were both good. The Views are Outstanding! Great for a Romantic dinner or even a small party ( possibly up to 100 people ( idk )), there’s even a bar & a dance floor on the roof-deck.
Unexpected good cruise

Beautiful night
Karen_S, Nov 2023
The website says business casual no jeans. My new husband only wears jeans. We had to get another outfit for him. There were people with holey jeans and not very nice clothes. I don’t care but don’t say that unless you are enforcing it. The service & food were great.
Harbor Cruise A++
Judy_H, Nov 2023
It was a lovely cruise and the dinner was delicious. We were on board with a lively crowd who participated in lots of dancing which made for a wonderful evening of entertainment. It got dark early on our cruise, so we were not able to participate in seeing the scenes from the harbor, however, we did see the downtown lit up nicely. Excellent customer service on board and being with our family — what could be better. 🤗🙏🩵
Wonderful excursion!
Pamela_R, Nov 2023
We had a fantastic dinner and the whole staff was very professional! I recommend dinner cruising with Flagship! Great experience!

Best Birthday Ever
Ebene_G, Nov 2023
The staff were all very nice. It was clean and the food was delicious. I went with my 8 year old daughter and she enjoyed dancing and the entire evening. Seeing such a beautiful of the city was awesome.
YVette_B, Nov 2023
The cruise itself was very relaxing. The food gets a 3 out 5 rating. Not very appetizing. We were celebrating our 30th yr anniversary.
Beautiful View but Average Tasting Food
Teri_W, Nov 2023
We sailed on 11/05/23. The views were beautiful, and the staff were friendly and helpful. However, we were disappointed by the quality of the food. My boyfriend’s vegetarian meal was very salty. I was informed the standard dinner for that evening was steak and lobster, however I was served shrimp and brisket, which was also heavy on the salt.
