After dinner, work off the calories as the DJ begins playing an array of dancing music, from Top 40 tunes to classic hits. Between bites and dancing, check out San Francisco sights like Alcatraz Island and the Bay Bridge.

One of the best Dinner Cruises that we have been on. The food was excellent and the DJ"s music kept a lot of people on the dance floor most of the night. We really had a fun, entertaining evening.
A memorable cruise

Raevon_Y, Nov 2022
I would like to start off by saying we loved the view from the boat it truly was beautiful! BUT unfortunately the food in my own opinion wasn’t really good and was kinda cold. Also it kinda sucked because it was my husbands birthday and I had to keep reminding them of this yet other people that had their birthdays that day were getting either a free drink or free slice of cake but they didn’t do anything for my husband. Even after being told it was his birthday multiple times. So I guess if it’s a birthday/anniversary you’re celebrating go with the expectation to be or not be recognized. Outside of that we had a decent time.

Dancing under the moon light
James_S, Oct 2022
Dancing under the Golden Gate to the song Anniversary on our anniversary was one of the most enjoyable moments.
Don_M, Oct 2022
Get a new DJ. He was loud and rude. He said he's a great DJ and then gets on the dance floor with a mic for everyone to follow his directions on doing the electric slide. He was totally out of rhythm. He kept changing in the middle of songs so you couldn't even finish dancing to a song you liked. He alone was able to accomplish our having an unpleasant event. Our 37th Anniversary.
Ryan_A, Oct 2022
It was cool. Wish the food options were a little better and others were out of. The service was perfect and nice as well as the DJ. I wound still recommend it for a night out to relax and enjoy the views.
Good food and service staff were excellent
Emerita_B, Dec 2021
Food and staffs are excellent, except for the music and dancing. As per ad, there will be live band providing the music, instead it was a DJ. And the dancing started just over an hour before berthing!!!
Very nice staff, fun DJ...

Tour operators do not provide refund to cancel. The cancellation policy is written in a confusing way to trick people into buying it.
