So who has the best Tampa Bay dinner cruise; Starlite Cruises, Yacht Starship Cruises, Show Queen Cruises?

Drum roll please…….
Starlite Cruises! I have been on all the major dinner cruises in the area and I believe that this boat gets my top pick.
I took the Starlite Majesty, one of the their cruise ships on my 1st wedding anniversary and I must say it did not disappoint at all.
We were concerned initially because we were unsure of how to dress on the cruise.
So I wore a suit and a tie, waited in the parking lot to check out how others were dressed going on the ship. I was going to take off my jacket and tie if I was overdressed.
From my observations I quickly came to the conclusion that the attire ranges from casual to somewhat dressy (suit and tie for men and something comparable for women).
So what makes Starlite Cruises better than all the others? Well, I would say the view, the atmostphere, and the food.

However, over the years my taste buds have transformed as I have been exposed to a wider variety of restaurants.
If it helps any my wife, who is a little more discriminating in food choices, seemed to have enjoyed the food as well.
We started off with a house salad which tasted crispy and fresh. Then when the meal came I was surprised that I rather enjoyed it.
I ordered grilled chicken that was pounded and rolled with spinach stuffed inside. Afterward, I found myself wishing that I had more.

hungry, but because I simply enjoyed the food.
The atmosphere was the highlight of the boat. There was music playing aboard. Some people danced and we enjoyed watching the dancing and talking with another couple from out of state.
After we ate we went on the top deck to observe the view of the beach.
That is where we witnessed the breathtaking sunset as we cruised around the gulf. The view of the sunset alone was worth the price of the dinner cruise.
Starlite Cruises have the most reasonable prices out of all the cruises in the area.
For the price of what you may pay at many restaurants we received a cruise, music, and dinner.
I liked the fact that there was a menu to order whatever you wanted to eat. This is good just in case you want to keep down costs and order one of the less expensive items on the menu.
The price of the cruise is $17.75 per person for adults and $8.88 for children.
Then you pay for whatever food that you order from the menu. The menu items range in price from $11.75 to $29.95.
Currently there is a discount of 25% off the cruise amount (excluding the food) if you book online at their site.
