"The dinner cruise was wonderful. The staff was exceptional on all levels. The food and music were terrific! The only concern I had was the boat was a bit dated, and the table we were at was leaning so it was a little uncomfortable. "
"It was a little confusing on how to book our excursion since we had multiple gift certificates to apply, but once I called the number on the website, Michaela was awesome at taking care of the problem, and I was able to get us booked. My husband and I took the Marina Del Rey Dinner Cruise and had a wonderful time. We were celebrating our 43rd wedding anniversary and, from the time we arrived until the time we left, the whole crew made us feel special. The food was great and more than we expected. The only downside to the whole experience was that it rained, but hey, until you can control that, no worries. Thanks for a great time. "
