Dinner cruises have evolved into fine eateries over the years, coming a long way since the dubious 24-hour buffet of Julius Caesar’s primitive binge barge. Taste four stars beneath starry skies with today’s Groupon to Yacht StarShip. Choose between the following options:
- For $80, you get a three-course dinner cruise for two (a $181.90 value, including port fee and fuel surcharge).
- For $160, you get a three-course dinner cruise for four (a $363.80 value, including port fee and fuel surcharge).
Aboard the triple-decker yacht StarShip II, a seasonal menu of gourmet dishes fuels passengers through an intimate evening of dancing, DJ tunes, and breathtaking Tampa Bay views. A photographer’s camera welcomes guests up the ramp, with the shots available for purchase during the evening. The captain and crew extend official salutations before the dining-room manager escorts each group to its private table for a starter from the seasonal menu, such as a traditional caesar salad or a soup du jour. Tines sink into the char-grilled prime pork chop adobo or the goat-cheese-filled caprino pasta purses, ideal for carrying lasagna-noodle wallets. The fresh catch of the day serves up the finest flavors of the sea before a daily selection of desserts clears palates with a wave of sweetness. Additional beverages, appetizers, or upgrades to dinner items are available for an extra fee.
After dinner, parties ascend stairs to the promenade deck for 360-degree views of bayside splendor rife with the bay’s elegant wildlife, such as dolphins, pelicans, and discofish. Dancing duos dip partners as the cruise director blends classic toe-tapping tunes with modern pop hits on the lounge deck. Tampa’s night-lights glitter beneath the unveiled stars, which wink shyly in the sky and pointedly avoid eye contact with the man in the moon.
