Bianica was not only helpful and efficient, she was delightful! Whilst I can bring myself to give five stars to any buffet, this is a solid winner. This is one experience that is more than worth the price.

Kevin W., April 29, 2016

The experience was very nice. We cruised around the bay and top deck had a full bar and a DJ. The coffee served after dinner was fantastic. I recommend people do this at least once in their life.

Diana N., April 9, 2016
