We reserved for 20+, ended up with 9. No issues with reservation cancellations. We made 4 separate reservations so we didn’t all sit together (which we were aware of). I was told once there that even with separate reservations, had we booked under 1 name we could’ve sat together. Water & Iced Tea are included with the meal. Dessert ($6) & alcohol($9-$12) extra. Bar accepts cash/tab. Live entertainment was fun. The host was very friendly, even gave us an additional 5min stall time waiting on 1 from our party, traffic. The food was good & some was full & opted out of dessert. The ONLY “negative” is my table didn’t have a window seat. Our table was across from the bar against a wall. So we went upstairs on the deck to admire the view & take pics after ordering dinner. The host came to get us when dinner was being served. After dinner we went back upstairs, where we were able to purchase our group pictures, which was assume bc there was a line for picture sales upon departure.

The experience was good. I just didn’t think about it getting dark and it being hard to see anything after about an hour. The food was good and service was good. Didn’t care for the music. Would have liked some narration on the sights we were passing. Some announcements were made in the beginning but not able to hear.

The views of Charleston Harbor, the cotton candy colored sunset, and the Ravanel Bridge, especially after dark, were beautiful. The service of the wait staff was prompt and friendly. The food was quite tasty and satisfying. The live music was very soothing as we enjoyed the cruise. It was a very relaxing, enjoyable evening! So glad we chose to take the dinner cruise!
