The views of Charleston Harbor, the cotton candy colored sunset, and the Ravanel Bridge, especially after dark, were beautiful. The service of the wait staff was prompt and friendly. The food was quite tasty and satisfying. The live music was very soothing as we enjoyed the cruise. It was a very relaxing, enjoyable evening! So glad we chose to take the dinner cruise!

Bruce was spectacular he was so informative. You could tell he loves his city and takes pride in sharing the uniqueness of it. This was the highlight of our day.

Very interesting. The introduction at the raising of the flag, we were the first visit of the day, was well-written.

It was one of the highlights of our vacation. Everyone must do it!
