Capt. JP III has 3 dining decks that are tastefully decorated with carpet and stackable banquet chairs in good condition. All the tables that are rectangular, are 30-inch width with collapsible legs. The round tables are 48 inch diameter with collapsible legs. The main deck and one other deck have waitress stations with hand wash sinks. Both decks have good storage for dinnerware and needed supplies, and storage for pitchers, etc. Glass and coffee cups are stored in a cabinet on the main deck on rolling carts. Passengers have good visibility from all seats. Both of the lower two decks have their own restrooms, entrances, dance floors and bars for complete privacy during private events.
The 3rd level is private insomuch that other guests do not enter their area except to use the outside restrooms. This has not been an issue because of the size of these restrooms. All decks have handicap restrooms and all decks are accessible by elevator.
The boat can provide a sit-down dinner for 400+ guests as she sits. We have done 475- person sit-downs without using outside areas. We do mostly buffets, but set down service is doable. We use our outside decks as common areas when hosting multiple functions and it works well. Capt. JP III has a lot of open deck areas.
