Cornucopia Cruise Line's ships transport guests through the inland waterways along the New Jersey shoreline. Each ship is appointed with up-lit ceilings, brass railings, hardwood dance floors, and glittering lights. During evening cruises, wait staff serve a sit-down dinner as the DJ's tunes coax diners onto the dance floor. Excursions on Saturday and Sunday sate guests with buffet-style lunch or brunch, respectively. The ships range in size from the Cornucopia Majesty's vast 1,200-person capacity to the Cornucopia Destiny's intimate 400-person quarters, where guests should wear business-casual attire, eschewing gym shoes on their feet and flip-flops on their hands.

The chefs at Terrazza Restaurant meld Cuban, Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin American cuisine into house-specialty fusion fare. Diners launch an opening volley against hunger with the Terrazza house salad, a blend of arugula, cucumber, and garbanzos in balsamic vinaigrette. Carve a mark into the ropa vieja, slow-braised skirt steak with bell peppers, onions, and peas, or savor the pescado al ajillo, fillet of sole sautéed in a white-wine and garlic sauce and mounted on the wall to sing holiday jingles at the press of a button. Patrons converse in the earth-toned dining area over the grilled chicken breast of the pollo a la plancha, or sit amidst low, blue lighting at the bar sipping 1 of 17 mojitos (not included in the price of this Groupon). Guests cap off the meal by forking through caramel-laden flan made with custard as rich as the man who invented money.

Alvin C. Copeland Sr.'s first chicken venture was a flop. His Chicken on the Run restaurant dished up traditional fried chicken, but his customers in the suburbs of New Orleans turned up their noses. So he decided to start over completely. This time, he named the restaurant "Popeye's" after Jimmy "Popeye" Doyle, played by Gene Hackman in the movie The French Connection. But it wasn't the name that brought customers flocking in: it was the new chicken recipe, now spicy with New Orleans flair. This flavor has fueled astronomical growth ever since?in 2011, Popeye's opened its 2,000th restaurant worldwide. Now, Popeye's is an international destination for crunchy Cajun-style fried chicken and melt-in-your-mouth buttermilk biscuits. Both the spicy and mild chicken gets marinated for 12 hours or more, then it's hand-battered, hand-breaded, and fried to a delectable crisp, like space aliens that fly too close to the sun. The french baguettes of po' boy sandwiches come stuffed with chicken or crispy shrimp, and to finish off meals, diners have their pick of homestyle sides such as coleslaw, green beans, and mashed potatoes.

Though it specializes in tacos, Pico Taco is anything but traditional. A modern interior with simple wooden tables, rough brick, and a colorful wall covered in words such as "sashimi" and "wasabi" fits with the kitchen's unique Mexican-Asian fusion cuisine. The menu begins with classics such as Oaxacan chicken mole and alambre, Mexican-style skewers of meat and vegetables. All the tortillas are made with corn and flour. And yet, it's the fillings that make each taco and burrito unique: smokey, tomato-based chicken tinga, baja-seasoned Alaskan fish, Japanese-style garlic-soy marinated chicken, and Korean barbecue beef, among others. To add an extra kick, six styles of regional Mexican salsas ranging from mild to hot are served on the side or poured into every drink.
