"We had a wonderful time on our Bateaux dinner cruise. Our children gave this as a gift to us, and we enjoyed this dinner cruise to celebrate our anniversary. From booking the date to the end of our dinner cruise, we enjoyed a fantastic and courteous experience. We were greeted by a respectful and pleasant gentleman upon boarding the boat. He had asked us if we were celebrating anything, and we told him that we were celebrating our anniversary. When it came time for dessert, we were served our cake acknowledging our anniversary in writing with icing on the plate. What a beautiful gesture. Our waiter's name was Jose. He was so pleasant, kind, helpful, and respectful. We had a terrific and enjoyable dinner cruise experience. What a great and amazing gift from our thoughtful and wonderful children. "
