Dance and Dine on the Waters of Tampa Bay
By Marina I. Jokic Florida State Homes
Tampa is one of the premier vacation destinations for tourists from all over the world. Aside from its first-class beaches and a slew of water sports and outdoor fun, a popular activity sought out by visitors is cruise dining. Yacht StarShip in Tampa is the first dining yacht to be recognized by AAA with their three diamond rating, ranked in the top 28% of all restaurants in the U.S.
The winner of “Best Event Facility” in 2010 by the South Central Tampa Tribune. The company has four vessels in its fleet: the Yacht Starship, the Starship II, the Sensation, and the Pirate Water Taxi- each offering different capacities.
Their elegant dining cruises offer private seating, tableside service, scenic views of the water, and live music and dancing. Michelle Harris, Director of Marketing at StarShip, tells us that the venue is popular for weddings, corporate outings, banquets, bar/bat mitzvahs, birthdays, and anniversaries. It is an ideal setting for hosting a wide range of events, from casual gatherings to formal receptions and anything in between.
