“Solaris Cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

We have been on a "regular" Solaris Cruise, a wedding on the Solaris and a special event serving crawfish and a shrimp boil. Each time it has met our expectations. As a local, the entertainment has been some of the best in the area. The food is outstanding with reasonable prices and you will not find better service. The highlight of course is the beautiful sunset cruise. I would recommend to anyone vacationing or living in the area.

“Don't regret trying but won't be back and won't recommend.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

Mediocre food at best and very high priced. Service was excellent and the entertainment was pleasant. All ages on board for dinner and variety of people. My biggest concern is that hot food wasn't hot (parts were actually cold) when served and some dishes served weren't cleaned properly. I was also served undercooked roasted potatoes which is ridiculous since this is their standard menu item. Honestly, the kitchen needs to address this issue before people get sick. Our cruise wasn't remotely busy so I can't imagine the kitchen mistakes during a busy summer evening during a full cruise. No regrets for taking the cruise to try it but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else. Especially for the few hundred we spent for two people.
