"The one complaint is I am gluten free. I wrote a message with the original reservation, but unfortunately the crew onboard was not familiar with my diet. There were hardly any gf options, so I ate fruit. I was pretty disappointed with the lack of care, I would have liked to be warned at least, if they could not accommodate."
"This was a birthday present and I couldn't be happier. My wife and I had a wonderful, relaxing time."
"The Captain and crew of the Mystic Whaler were fabulous! It was a great experience and I would definitely go back for another cruise. In fact I want to do one of the overnight cruises next year!"
