                              This was a great cruise around the bay for the evening. It lasted about 2 hours and we got to go out the pass at sunset. It was a nice slow cruise and we even saw many dolphins and the captain was great at keeping the cruise interesting with all his stories and comments on the bay.

                              Excellent experience. Make sure you eat prior to going because there’s only cheese and fruit as a food option. Everything else was amazing though.

                              Food & staff great. Expected a fancy yact but felt more like ferry boat with tables. Could use white table cloths & nicer finishings

                              My fiancé and I took our families on the Mother's Day cruise and it was a fiasco. There were neither details on the reservation nor signage directing us how to get to the marina or what to do when we arrived. We were supposed arrive an hour early and board 30 minutes before departure. Apparently the food service was running late so we weren't able to board until 10 minutes before departure, even then we had to guess when to get onto the boat as no one came to tell us it was time to board. It was very difficult to board the ship and it was not ADA accessible at all, I had made a note on the reservation that one of the members of our party was blind and luckily, a gentleman in the crew made a very narrow bridge that my aunt was able to use to board. Next, we get inside and discover that there aren't enough seats for everyone on board so half of the cruise didn't a table. The food wasn't served until 11:30 and only part of the cruise was able to get biscuits. There were no table napkins till the crew improvised with paper towels. I noted also on the reservation that I was a vegetarian and the fruit and breads promised in the menu weren't available so I paid $85 for a piece of cheese cake, romaine lettuce with parmesan (not vegetarian so I got sick), 4 green beans, and a piece of cheesecake. All of the crew was on their first or second day and tried to make due with their bad situation. I really felt for crew member Sook as she was retired from the Coast Guard and taking the brunt of the complaints. She had me fill out a complaint card and I asked them to contact me, but I have yet to get a phone call three days later. This was really an unfortunate Mother's day choice as we were promised so many things. I feel for the people who didn't get a seat or didn't get to eat. They really over booked the boat and under delivered. Save your money and go to the Solaris in Sandestin instead. They always have quality food, service, ADA accessibility, and very well trained staff.

                              I truly enjoyed this cruise! It was mine and my families first time on a yacht and the captain and staff made it that much more enjoyable and entertaining. The drinks were tasteful. The music was themed to the cruise and very energetic. The captain gave the passengers the opportunity for photos and explained the views in sight. The timing was perfect too. My kids enjoyed it too and the charcuterie board of treats. It was overall relaxful and I’m definitely looking forward to doing this again and have already recommended to friends and family. I don’t think enough people know about this amazing experience!

                              We went on the Lady Cruise on our girls trip while celebrating our friend’s birthday. Such a fun cruise for a great price and getting to see Dolphins. A few suggestions: 1. Either tell guests to wear something warm during the sunset cruise or offer blankets on boat. It got very cold around sunset 2. Maybe offer a bit more variety with the cheese/crackers board 3. The website says “cash bar” only but the bartender was able to accept card. Make that more consistent.

                              We had a great relaxing time. Capt Charlie was awesome. We took advantage of the $25 cruise and got lucky with having a small quiet group with no kids and great weather. The fruit and cheese platters were very pretty and plentiful with full sized cocktails. The capt made sure we saw dolphins and we even went under Hathaway Bridge which I wasn't expecting and that was a bonus! We are locals so we will definitely return. We love to visit the resort anyways.

                              We had a great time on our cruise. The boat captain was a blast, and the scenery was unbeatable. Did I mention we saw some Dolphins?! Great experience with my family and we are thinking about signing up for the Sunday Brunch soon. Thank you Champagne Lady and crew!

                              We had a fun filled cruise aboard The Champagne Lady. The staff was delightful, the bartender Jennifer made a special drink for me, others saw it and also ordered it! The appetizer where amazing, my complements to the chef! We sailed along the beautiful coastline of PCB to with impeccable views. Captain Charles and his Crew where not only kind but gave us a secure fun time as they pointed out the dolphins and all the other interesting sights along the way. I would definitely go again, it was a great night out on the water! PS. The sunset was spectacular!

                              This was the most unorganized MESS! They need to get their staff on the same page before they try to host anything again. The only redeeming piece of the night was the meal. The service was horrible and we were given wrong directions multiple times that resulted in about 30 minutes of walking on the docks in the 45 degree weather in our heels. Also, Hank Williams Jr, “All My Rowdy Friends” isn’t exactly Valentines vibes. If we pay $175 for a ticket, I’d like to think that would include your drinks. But we were charged astronomical prices on the boat for extremely poor quality alcohol. Lastly, why would you serve hors d’oeuvres AFTER a four course meal? And why would you do a boat ride in the dark when you can’t see anything? It would make way more sense to do a cocktail boat ride with hors doeuvres at sunset prior to dinner. Overall, just so disappointed and was so frustrating. There was another couple who didn’t even go on the boat because they were so tired of the wrong directions we were given by staff and then being rushed through dinner. I wish I would’ve skipped the boat too as dinner was the only good part.

                              the Valentine cruise was not worth it at all. it felt unorganized. Front desk staff of the Sheraton didn't know anything. Tides restraunt wasn't much better. Only one server for the group and she was run ragged. Our food came out in the wrong order. After dinner was told to walk out to boat and that is a long walk. NO mention that a Cart was available (passed us on way to boat). Noticed one couple decided to skip the boat after dinner. Boat cruise was alright but it was to dark to see anything and the city skyline isn't all that impressive. Everyone we spoke to thought that this was supposed to be a dinner cruise which would have been a lot better especially if it has started while the sun was setting. also there was no activities while on the boat except for drinking. A small Dance floor would have been nice as well as some music to dance to. Issues needing addressed 1. If your going to have the dinner and boat ride separate than the people at the entrance should know what is going on and where to go 2. have more servers available in Restraunt 3. have EVERYONE involved know what the schedule of events are 4. have transportation available to boat. (more than one cart) 5 Avoid a lot of hassles of different venues by making it a sunset dinner cruise with everything being on the boat. 6. have some romantic events on the boat (DANCEING) While it was all fun in the end it could have been a lot better. Maybe Next Year will be better.

                              Absolutely terrible. Soup was salty. Only 1 served. Not worth the price . Cruise was boring. I wish i didn't purchase this

                              We had a fantastic time. Service at dinner was sub par. It was obvious that this was new. In time I'm sure they will get it figured out. Just work through the kinks. Overall we had a lot of fun the food was great and met some great people. Will definitely do it again.

                              The cruise was great. Food was good. The lady that worked in the hotel's sales department that was helping then was very helpful/amazing. The bar tender lady, very friendly/nice. Cruise captain was nice/informative. Our deal was also tied to Tides restaurant along with the cruise. I'd not recommend Tides at all. They were horrible. Services was all over the place. Not well trained/organized. Food was late and not that great, and overpriced for what we got. But the cruise and the food on it was great. So, pass on Tides. Book just the cruise and its food.

                              The overall experience was ok. The event didn't seem well organized, understaffed? There wasn't much direction to guest. The food was good but, we waited over an hour from our salad to our entree. Think we were forgotten. Would not recommend.

                              1. Need a Gangplank. Risk of injury on boarding the boat. This is big. 2. Air Conditioing broke down going the trip about halfway out. This is big. 3. Service folks, check in and bar tender; no experience first time out. 4. Food, appetizers low quality, dinner the filets were dried out and well done, deserts were room temperature terrible. Grouper not bad. 5. Not worth $172. You are a Hotel you know what to do!
