I upgraded my meal and was very disappointed in what I got for the money. The veggies were not cooked and the meat portion was tiny and over cooked for what was paid. Absolutely incredible service and the bay is great scenery, the cost and the less than average experience with the food makes it hard to give high ratings.
The service was great.
Flawless evening out with a friend who has never been on a dinner cruise.
Our server was new but she was excellent. Food was good but not great but everything else about this dinner cruise was fantastic.
Wonderful dinning expieriance
I loved taking my husband here! He turned 22 and although the majority of the crowd was older, it just meant for us that it wasn't a party boat and the noise level was fine. The food was amazing and I've already recommended others to go!
It was a fun brunch and I definitely recommend it for people to try. The service is great. The food could have been better, but we were there for the experience!
On the night after the "Full Moon Cruise" we went on Hornblower's "regular" Thursday night dinner cruise. Still lots of moonlight to be enjoyed on deck and the menu appeared to be the same with similar appetizer, entree, drink and dessert upgrades available for a price. Don't know if there was a price differential but the crowd was a bit thin. Although there were many celebrators (the couples on either side of us were celebrating a birthday and an anniversary respectively) on board basically no one was willing to get up and dance after dinner. Despite the D.J.s best efforts to lead off and suit the music to the crowd, which ranged from Toddlers to elders confined to wheelchairs, this was not a participatory crowd. The cruise around the bay consisted primarily of the ship doing figure eights back and forth under the Coronado Bridge past the south bay dry docks. Not terribly scenic at night despite the bright moon. In the future, will opt for a shorter daylight cruise to see the sights followed by dinner at one of San Diego's many superior restaurants. The food and service will be less indifferent, the cruise more enlightening and, likely, the total experience cheaper.
We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the staff made us feel special fro the moment we arrived. The food, music were great, but the views was the best part of the night for us. Romantic and fun :)
Lovely evening cruise with attendant waiters - small group with several birthdays, anniversaries, and other special celebrations. Good views and a special find.
Great cruise. The food was wonderful and the wait staff fabulous! We were able to wander around the ship. The band madethe night complete. It was a wonderful way to spend the evening. We could not have asked for more!
Excellent dinner and cruise for St. Valentine's Day.
A beautiful, peaceful cruise around San Diego Bay. The city lights are incredible. Dancing, an excellent meal, time to stroll out on the decks and enjoy the beauty of the city. A wonderful three hour excursion.
Had a great time, servers were fast and friendly. Food options were plentiful just wish I had a bigger stomach.
overall, it was GREAT!!!
The Hornblower Cruise was a comfortable and smooth ride, the night was just perfect for a romantic walk on the deck among the San Diego lights, and the openness of the ship made you feel like you had plenty of room to freely wander. The salmon entrée I had was a surprisingly good portion and cooked to almost perfection with the juices dripping upon the first bite. The wine list had one of my favorites, which made my evening pleasurable (7- Deadly Zins). Dancing was fun, romantic, and who cares if you can't dance a step. The night ended as if you lost a friend when you walked off the ship to find your car. A wonderful dinner and a night out under the stars in style on the cruising waters of San Diego....it was well worth it..
