If you're looking for high excitement, this isn't it. However, it wasn't bad either. For $85 (AAA discount), we took our family of 4 - Parents + 2 kids (4, 2) on this boat. You get a decent all-you-can-eat breakfast/brunch and pictures

Expensive, but what the heck? It was our 18th anniversary. The action started as you boarded, with the actors moving about and involving you in the show/mystery. However, as the action moved on, a problem became clear: they were sharing

We finally did a Christmas Ship Cruise last Dec. It was alittle chilly. so bring the layers. It speeds out of Kirkland. The mother in law was a snow queen/ Princess, and she was all about the Cruise. It's a nice way to check out bonfires

Dinner food was terrible. View was OK. I liked the live music. The waiter did not do a good job! This was our second dinner. Our first was a very good experience back in April 2008 but this second time in July 2009 I am very disappointed and will NEVER go there again! When you compare what you pay for what you get it is EXTREMELY overpriced. I hate the summer dinner menu, we had lam tenderloins, and Portobello mushroom for witch both was a disaster!!! Will not come again!

Worst experience of our Seattle trip. I took my parents to Seattle to celebrate their 40th Anniversary and we were going to take the Locks cruise. We arrived about half an hour before the next departure, purchased our tickets, and was told to wait in the center area and that a bus would be picking us up and take us to our departing location.

They announced the bus would be arriving and to move out to the street which we did along with a couple of other couples however we never saw a bus for Argosy. Finally, one of the other couples went asked about the bus and found out we were all standing in the wrong place. They failed to tell us we had to walk further north along to pier to another loading location for the bus. By the time we found out the bus had already left, we missed the cruise, and the next one wasn??t scheduled for 3 hours later.

I went back to the ticket counter and demanded a refund and asked to speak to a manager. I was sent to a building along the pier to speak to a manager. I explained to her my experience and all she said was we knew we were missing some passengers and looked for them. I know that is not true because the person at the ticket counter could see us the whole time we were waiting for the bus and never helped us. The manager made no effort to get us on that cruise or the harbor cruise that was leaving in 15 minutes. At least I did get a refund but the experience ruined my parent??s anniversary. If you??re going to use this company make sure you know exactly where to be or you will literally miss your boat.

I loved this place. So close to the water, and excellent menu options. The service was great and the food tasted delicious. I really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and will be back soon.

This is a great place for a private party or for a large event. It provides a very fun and private atmosphere with great views of Seattle. The service is great and you won't forget the experience.

The company offers a variety of cruises around the Puget Sound area at a reasonable price. The boats are nice and clean and the staff is very knowledgeable on the areas toured. It is worth the money when you have guests visit or just as a local Seattle-ite. Fun boat ride, worth the money!

While in Seattle my Dad and I decided to take a site seeing cruise around the Bay. We were able to walk right up and buy tickets for the next trip. As you are boarding they took everyones picture in front of the boat and had they had them ready for purchase by the time you docked. The cruise was great; it lasted approximately 45min to an hour and was very informative about the city. We learned from our guide all about the citys history, the Space Needle, West Seattle, Mt. Rainier, the Pike St. Market, the Mariners, and the even the port. It was very interesting and entertaining on such a beautiful day. Of coarse, they dont have a lot of days like that so the boat had an inside area with tables to sit at and windows to look out of. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is visiting Seattle. Argosy Cruises fun for the kids and interesting for the adults.

My husband brought me on the Argosy dinner cruise for our 10th anniversary. Not only was the food great, there was the most gorgeous sunset to make the evening just perfect.

While I can't guarantee a perfect sunset for you, I CAN tell you that you will not be disappointed in the food, service, or staff!

I went on the Harbor Cruise (one of the CityPass attractions) and I had a nice experience. A picture is taken of your group before docking and you can check out the picture when you return. The picture is actually very nice and reasonably priced. When I went, I had a great tour guide that pointed out all the different landmarks and attractions. He was very funny and kept things interesting.

I've done a Puget Sound cruise through that company at the end of July. It was actually done through a radiostation, and it cost only $29 a person, which was an awesome deal. They had a DJ onboard, a psychic, karaoke, some prize drawing, and even some food. The departed from Peir 55 and went to Alki Point, then up North, and got back to Seattle, went along the waterfront once more, and finally stopped at the pier. We got off the ship around 10pm. The ship had two decks, with the upper deck being partially opened. We spent some of the time inside and some outside. It was a nice and pleasant night out that didn't cost us too much.

PROS: Inexpensive (through radiostation), fun way to see Seattle from the water
CONS: None

It is a plesant and fabulous one. My family and I love the food on Argosy very much, actually this should be the best food I ever had on cruise, I think. The dinner environment is fanastic, it is very quiet and romantic, especially the musics and their services. We had a very beautiful view of sunset. The crews are very nice and friendly too. One thing not very plesant is the traffic in Seattle and it took me some time to drive through. If the cruise fares could be cheaper, it would be even wonderful, taken into a family of 6 together with you. I really love this dinner and am planing another one in the near future.

I took a short cruise last month on an Argosy boat to a wedding site on an island near Seattle, and was very impressed! The boat was swank, clean, and the staff aboard was classy and friendly. It was roomy too, and very comfortable inside, with some super cooshy booths. Not sure how expensive it was, but as a passenger, I recommend highly.

PROS: Comfy, classy, great service.
CONS: No complaints.

Argosy boat cruise's in Seattle are a fun thing to do when you have guests from out of town. For an average thing to do, its not so great. The food is overpriced and the service can sometimes be slow. I've been on many different ones and they all seem the same. Its a good place to have your employee party if you don't mind being out at sea with your co-workers for 3 hours with no escape. For upscale cruising around the waters of Puget Sound, call one of the local yacht companies and rent a yacht with a captain to take you anywhere you want.

I've done a dinner cruise out of Elliot Bay, and a lunch cruise in Lake Washington. Both were fabulous ways to enjoy a date. The dinner cruise with Argosy was exceptional. I don't know if it was just that I was hungry, but the food was really good! They played jazz whiie we dined, then we walked around and watched the sunset as we traveled around the water. I was very impressed with the level of professionalism of the crew. The captain also came down to chat with us and it was nice to put a face to the man in charge. My date and I were very impressed with how genuine the service was and I would do this again in a heartbeat. The lunch cruise was also as good and it was neat seeing all the "famous" Seattle-ites' houses on the water.

PROS: Great food and fun experience.
CONS: The dinner boat could have been a tad bit cleaner.

Argosy Cruises is a great choice for an office party or a special occasion. The cruise leaves from one of the piers downtown and takes you around Elliot Bay on the Puget Sound. They have buffet style dinners and a bar. They have room for live entertainment and a great deck on the back.
