StarLite Dining Cruises welcomes sightseers aboard its yacht, The StarLite Majesty, or its paddle wheeler, The StarLite Princess, for two-and-a-half or three-hour cruises with restaurant-style dining. After setting sail in the chosen multistory vessel, diners order from a lunch or dinner menu of upscale continental cuisine. While at lunch, customers can listen to the Dixieland Jazz Band at St. Petersburg or Smooth Jazz Duo in Clearwater. For dinner, vegetarians dig into the pasta primavera, a blend of penne noodles, alfredo sauce, and fresh veggies, and for either option, seafood enthusiasts order a market selection or dive into the water to catch crustaceans with their teeth. Private, reserved tables promote intimate conversations, and the climate-controlled dining room ensures that diners enjoy filet mignon without being weighed down by a sweatshirt. After taking in The StarLite Majesty mirrored décor or the Princess’s Victorian accents, passengers meander up to the observation deck to hear live music, view a scenic sunset, or criticize a skywriter’s spelling. Appetizers or beverages can complement a meal for an additional cost.
