I had a wonderful time, the food was fabulous and the crew were friendly and well caring for all us to have a wonderful time. I will be doing the Cruise again and will highly recommend Hornblower Cruises to my friends.
Thank you,

Free flowing champagne! That should sum it up nicely. In addition, the wait staff are super friendly and attentive. Needless to say, the view can't be beat.

Well worth it. The buffet and champagne made a fine cruise indeed. The piano player was great as we traveled around the bay area.

It happened to be a beautiful day on the Bay. The cruise was good and nicely narrated. The buffet was excellent and the champagne had lots of bubbles.
