The service on this cruise was unsatisfactory. We ordered drinks at a high cost of 5 each and didn't receive them until we had finished our meal. We could not get the attention of a server throughout the entire meal. Also, for the price paid, I didn't feel it appropriate to charge extra for shrimp cocktail and special desserts. They should have been included. Lastly, the cruise advertises a DJ and shows pictures of people dancing. This didn't start until there was 30-45 minutes left on the cruise. The positives were the food and sunset, however we could have eaten for a cheaper price and saw the sunset from land. I would not recommend this dinner cruise.
