We decided to take the luncheon cruise, figuring it was daylight, and the evening cruise isn't really a "sightseeing" trip. It is a very relaxing and enjoyable trip, adding to the pleasure as drinks are provided (adults) as well as the buffet. Now, to be fair, the buffet is typical buffet fare, generally bland, overcooked, but there were some interesting notes. Their potato salad had an interesting tang, similar to a Creole influence. Their pasta also had a bit of a tang. The chicken with mango sauce also had an overtone of mango, not overly heavy. The rum punch was a bit on the weak side, but when I commented on it, suddenly it got a bit stronger. It's also unlimited. If you want a relaxing trip where you can just sit back and do nothing but observe, this is for you. Dolphins are a plus if you see them. Masks are required when boarding, when moving about. They can be removed when at your table and when dining. Overall it's well worth it.

Capped off a fun filled girls weekend on the Calypso. Food was good, parking was convenient and we danced the night away after dinner. A few people in previous reviews commented that the DJ didn’t okay a good mix of music…that was not our experience. So. Much. Fun.

My only critical feedback is that the cost of admission is a little high for those not consuming alcohol. Our group included 2 moms, 1- 20 year old and three teenagers.

Our tour was a cold, Sunday night in January. Don’t let a chilly temp stop you!

The cruise and lunch were great! The Captain was so nice! He invited people in to steer the boat and at another point, invited me and my toddler to cool off in the wheelhouse in front of his fan. The wait staff was great too. My only complaints were that the A/C went out immediately so we had to open all the windows and it was super hot out and the rum punch barely had any rum in it. Overall, I'm really happy we booked this trip.

NOT a sunset cruise!!! When on the evening cruise upon the Calypso Queen for the buffet of dinner and for the sunset. We were both very disappointed in the cruise. I did my research on this company and boat before booking making sure I booked the best option to suit our interests. This cruise was advertised to us as a "sunset cruise". While we did cruise around, we were docked before the sun was even set. it was very disappointing and extremely upsetting especially by the time the boat docked and we got off the boat, we rushed to the pier to see the sunset and missed it! The calypso queen docked before the sunset even happened. We did not even get a chance to admire the sunset because I thought we were going further out to get a better look at the sunset. All the other vessel companies were out there in the water until after the sun finally set and then made its way back to the dock. We are very upset and feel we made the wrong decision going with this company.

The food was decent and the beers were free. There was someone pointing out buildings along the Cruise but it was very hard to hear.

The cruise was very nice, the staff very helpful and courteous. Dinner was good. Had wine, beer, and pinch included in the tour fee. All you could drink!
Why I give a low rating is this: As promised there was DJ and dancing music, after dinner the music started and then it became a nightmare for my husband and myself. It was so LOUD that we couldn’t even hear each other speak sitting together. I was never so happy to get off a boat as I was here!! If I had to spend another hour on board I would have swam to shore. It was all middle age to older ppl or families with small children on our cruise. It was geared more to spring breakers! They love that kind of stuff. I will never go again for this reason. Way to LOUD!!

Make it non smoking, could not go outside without the smell of marijuana. The staff smelled it and did nothing. The food was what you would find at a Golden Corral, the rum punch was not the best and you had to pay for dessert. Will never do this again! The only good thing was the views. Oh yeah I forgot the DJ played mostly horrible music!

The review on here giving 1 star and saying it wasn’t great, was spot on. The food is awful. Bland, slop. Could have better food at McDonald’s. Rum punch was watered down basic pour rum. Had one glass and couldn’t choke down the other. The upper deck would have been more fun if they didn’t allow smoking or weed. If you’re into that then this is the boat for you. The music was bad. It looks like it would be a fun party dinner cruise, but lacked on fun and food. I think the reviews on here must be friends of the cruise line or people with low expectations. The first bad review got it right. Save your money. Not worth it. Basically you’re paying for a boat ride. They are saving money by skimping on food and cheap liquor

I don't even know where to start, I was so excited to go on this boat / lunch ride. I took my wife on the afternoon sail & buffet and it was definitely not worth the time or money. The strict rules for one with covid already sucks but while you get your food you must wear a mask and gloves?^$#@ and on top of that there was a lady watching 👀 your every move who was very rude. She also made drinks that wear horrible and when I told her my long island I paid $7 each and tipped her for taste like pop she began to try and argue with me. there's no need to debate it taste it for yourself. The food was just ok, nothing like the reviews crave about and the whole trip the captain played a pre recorded tape that was like listening to a boring lecture. After eating they had the nerve to bring a bill around asking for a tip 😒 going up the narrow stairs to upper deck for the view was another boring disappointment. I'm like yall can't even play music dang. I'm only leaving a review for the afternoon cruise and trying to save someone from the excitement of a Afternoon party and cruise. NO you get a meal and a ride in a circle lol enjoy

Upon arriving and getting tickets I was told it takes approximately 2 1/2 hrs. Nope not even 2 hrs including we left port approximately 13 minutes late. The view beautiful. Food bland warm not hot. Ashley our server was nice. Party cruise? There was no music the majority of the ride. One teen said to her parents “ How much longer this so boring “ That was my sentiments as well. Great disappointment.

The best time I have had drinks and food all inclusive at a great price. The captain was entertaining and informative, our host was very sweet and attentive to our needs. Loved the upper deck where we could enjoy the gulf air.
