    Everything was very good, except the service for the bar and the dessert. Upon arrival, our group of 29 was served by 1 server. It took, 30 minutes before everyone got their drink (coffee, sodas, beer, etc). After the 1 server accepted the drink orders, there was 1 bartender

    Hi there, thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback. I have passed this onto my bar manager, as well as my service manager. I apologize for the slow bar service. We will try our best to make sure this issue does not get repeated. Thank you for cruising with us. I hope you decide to come back and give us a second chance. Thank you -Aaron

    First - John E., our server, was phenomenal. Didn't miss a thing! Second. The Pilot was so smooth Most of us at our table didn't realize we had left the dock until we were mid-river The Steelhead lunch was done to perfection. Can it get any better than that? Not likely!

    The Spirit Cruise is fine if you like that sort of thing. We took the “Sightseer Cruise” which just means we booked the $32 (no-lunch) cruise rather than the $76 version that included food. Pros: 1. Nice airy top deck with comfy seats (though if it was a busy/sunny day there

    Everything is good if you are willing to pay a lot of money! They will take a photo from you while you are entering the ship but it will cost you $15 so be prepared for an extra 30% for tips, drinks, desserts, and photos! It's an expensive lunch and will be even more expensive

    Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we are very transparent with our pricing. If you decide to come on board and not purchase anything extra, there is no additional price unless you would like to leave a tip. We do not charge gratuity upfront because we want you to be able to give what you feel the service was worth. Our operating costs are very high, we have many expenses that a normal restaurant would not have. Over 50% of your ticket price goes to the cruise itself. Please understand we keep our prices as low as possible. -Aaron
