StarLite Dining Cruises’ friendly crews welcome sightseers aboard their yacht The StarLite Majesty or their paddle wheeler The StarLite Princess for cruises throughout Tampa Bay, as guests dance and dine on upscale, continental cuisine. Cruisers set sail in their chosen multistory vessel, cutting a rug on the ship’s gleaming hardwood dance floor to the tune of live music. After taking in The StarLite Majesty ’s mirrored décor or the Princess ’s Victorian accents, passengers meander up to the observation deck to view a scenic sunset, drink in sparkling, sun-kissed waters, or criticize a skywriter’s spelling. Come meal time, guests engage in intimate conversations at window-side private, reserved tables, and the climate-controlled dining room ensures that diners enjoy meals without being weighed down by a sweatshirt.
To fuel up during their 2.5-hour seafaring journey, lunchtime travelers fill bellies from a lunch menu, treating taste buds to shrimp Creole, chicken cordon blue, or the vegetarian harvest’s array of seasonal veggies. Evening cruisers board for a three-hour tour, ordering from a heartier dinner menu. Vegetarians dig into the pasta primavera, a blend of penne noodles, alfredo sauce, and fresh veggies, and seafood enthusiasts order a market selection or dive into the water to catch crustaceans with their teeth. Appetizers or beverages can complement a meal for an additional cost.

Passengers board the ships and are escorted to their reserved tables by the dining staff. After ordering entrees such as filet mignon and fresh-from-the-wharf seafood, guests explore the ships as onboard chefs prepare the fresh entrees in an hour. Passengers gaze at the StarLite Majesty yacht, or at the custom Club Lounge and their impressive appointments on the StarLite Sapphire.
