Tampa Bay Dinner Cruise
A dinner cruise is an all-in-one date night. In one location you find fine dining, music and dancing, and the beautiful setting of city lights silently slipping by. Although the menu changes depending upon what is fresh, entrees like Aegean-style chicken with a Greek tomato sauce and Swiss chard are common menu items. Heartier dishes like a center-cut filet with gorgonzola demi-glace are also frequently on the menu.
Make reservations by phone or online. Most major credit cards are accepted, although it is recommended that you bring cash along for a gratuity and parking. Upscale attire is suggested; however, ties are not required.

Radiance of the Seas - 5 Night Western Caribbean
Launched in 2001, the 13-deck Radiance of the Seas is like a floating resort. With an on-board day spa, rock climbing wall and golf simulator, your days at sea can be as relaxed or action-packed as you choose. At night the ship offers multiple restaurants, bars and clubs to entertain.
After leaving Tampa, the ship spends one day at sea before you arrive at Costa Maya, Mexico. While there you can swim with the dolphins, enjoy a snorkeling trip or just shop and enjoy the area around the port. Your next stop is Cozumel, which is world-famous for its scuba diving. However, you don't have to be a diver to enjoy Cozumel. Take an island tour or rent a scooter and explore the island on your own.

MS Ryndam - 7 Day Western Caribbean
You will notice right away that the Ryndam is not like other cruise ships. It is much smaller, with only 9 decks and capacity for less than 1,300 passengers, which can allow for a more personal level of service. On the ship you will find a fountain by Gilbert Lebirge, plus art and artifacts from the 17th through the 19th centuries.
When it is time to leave the ship you will find ports of call in four different countries. The first stop is Key West, FL. From there you will spend a day at sea before reaching the former capital of Belize, Belize City. You will then depart for for Mahogany Bay, Honduras. The last port of call is Costa Maya, Mexico.
