The service and food surpassed my expectations. We did not feel crowded or hurried. There was plenty to see. The entire experience was first rate. The pleasant helpful attitude of the crew made it a wonderful couple of hours. Thank You.

Book it. Champagne brunch was awesome!
Eugene_C, Aug 2023
Food was great. Boat wasn’t full. Food was hot. Get there 30 mins ahead of time. Board early. Took 10 mins and they opened the food. So we actually almost finished eating prior to leaving. Also they mimosas were truly bottomless. They kept the glass full.
Top notch cruise!

Great food, endless mimosas, friendly staff and beautiful views! Nice way to kick off your stay in San Diego.
Meh on the dock
Travis_L, Jul 2023
There were none. We didn’t leave the dock. The food was less than mediocre. A hotel breakfast buffet would have been better and cost less
Fun and interesting
Martha_D, Jul 2023
This is a pricey cruise, but very enjoyable. There was one party on the cruise of about 17 people having a birthday party. It was fun seeing this party have bunches of fun, celebrating. The boat is very, very roomy. The staff gave out unlimited champagne. The food was great and plentiful. There was a good variety of things to eat. Cruising the San Diego bay is always fun and interesting.
Relax and enjoy!
Paula_F, Jul 2023
Seating area was not too crowded. Food was tasty, with some variety and plenty to eat. Continuous pours of sparkling wine. Friendly servers. Nice sized windows to see out of and lots of room up top to sit and sightsee. Nice slow ride.

Fun Bday
Sierra_B, Jul 2023
Went for my birthday. they hand out champagne or apple cider as you walk in. food was great. they have games on the top deck but they are first come, first serve. overall great experience.
Must do this cruise
Brian_B, Jul 2023
Besides us arriving late we had a great time. Food was amazing and the staff took care of us the whole time.
Food major disappointment!
Kimberly_E, Jul 2023
The boat ride was the only thing worth mentioning. The food was extremely disappointing, cheap and gross. Will not purchase again nor go on the dinner cruise in fear of more gross food, not worth $300 by any stretch of the meaning!
Great good with friends!
amy_G, Jul 2023
Great food, great host, friendly people! Loved it. All of the people which worked the cruise were extremely friendly. I’ve always been afraid of Amy type of boat trip, but I felt perfectly comfortable and safe. This brunch cruise is a must for anyone visiting San Diego
Luckily there is bottomless mimosas
Jermaine_M, Jul 2023
Although our waitress, Evelyn was such a pleasure the overall experience was less than the value. Luckily there was bottomless champagne and mimosas because the food quality and options were less than a standard buffet at a Residence Inn
Fantastic San Diego Harbor Brunch Cruise!
Ashlea_B, Jul 2023
Had such an great time on this Brunch Cruise around San Diego Harbor! The Hornblower is a beautiful boat with lots of window seating. The upstairs deck has games and even more seating to enjoy the weather and the sites, and they have staff around that are quick to refill your bottomless champagne if they see you are getting low! Really enjoyed our cruise!
