Very enjoyable trip
, May 2022
We had the best time on board the Calypso Queen. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food buffet was amazing, fantastic selection and very tasty with the option to have as much as you needed. Plenty of rum punch for those that wanted some and other drinks too. Highly recommended trip.
A Nice afternoon

Just ok
, May 2022
Watch people dance and unlimited drinks. DJ played good music but lacking in personality. Didn’t interact with the customers.
Unexpected fun!!
, May 2022
We expected dinner and cruise. Meal outstanding, greeted with drinks, free to explore all 3 decks of boat, long sunset cruise. As we thought it’s winding down, JD turned second floor into a disco! The boat was rockin’! Great value for the dinner, entertainment and beautiful sunset
, May 2022
The boat was over crowded. After eating there was barely any room to squeeze out on the deck to catch fresh air and sunset views. I was crammed next to people. When needing to use the bathroom there was always a 3+ person line. The food tasted alright but the line and wait to get food took almost 40 minutes. By the time my husband and I got to the buffet there were no dinner rolls left. They served beer, wine and punch but the punch was awful. I would only do another event like this if there is a smaller guest limit.
Good Time

Beautiful views, captain was entertaining. Staff was so friendly and helpful. We had a large group of 13 and they took excellent care of our large party.

It was an ok experience. You get for what you pay for. The rum punch was not good, the wine was good the food was ok kind of bland.
Second time doing this...
, May 2022
Second time doing this dinner cruise. First time was so much better. Some of the food was great. Some was super dry. The staff wasn't very attentive and the dj played horrible music. The dj also pointed out false landmarks.
Once in a lifetime experience
, May 2022
The scenery, music, and food were awesome! Relaxing at sunset to music I haven't heard in years! Unforgettable experience
Food was subpar and no...
, May 2022
Food was subpar and no flavor the punch was beyond disappointing it forced us to buy a drink due to the lack of flavor The premise of the cruise was good but the music lacked any type of dance vibe which was promoted heavily The cruise has promise but needs fine tuning
You will enjoy yourself BUT,
, May 2022
I went with some friends and I loved the boat ride. The music selection was good. But the food is definitely a 2/10 the food is trash. Honestly I would just come here for the boat ride and unlimited drinks and go out to eat afterwards. But the experience was great!
, May 2022
Positive ~ The Captain and the food was great!! Negatives ~ The staff at the Clearwater location fell short with quality customer service. We had a party of over 15. Some were informed about special codes for parking and some were not. The rum punch was actually unlimited kool-aid. The entire staff lacked basic customer service skills. The waitress and bartender were extremely rude. The waitress walked over to charge for the buffet, before asking if the guests had a bands...only one member did not. I've been on the Calyso for several special occasions and this unfortunately will be my last and I'm speaking for my family as well. Treat "every" customer with respect.
Beautiful views of the bay and gulf at sunset.
, May 2022
Staff was very accommodating. Good food. Good music and dancing while watching the beautiful sunset over the gulf. Great way to see the bay. All around a wonderful evening for us and the other 2 couples with us.
