We had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect, the food and service were very good, and the pianist/commentator was excellent. Hornblower deserves a gold star for the gracious handling of the fact that we were not on the list GoldStar sent them.

We thoroughly enjoyed this event. The quality and quantity of the food, the service, and the condition of the boat were all top-notch. Amy, the pianist, played a very nice mix of pieces and did a fine job on narration about places we passed.

My husband and I enjoyed this cruise. The staffs were all so nice, great view/weather, good/plentiful food and the pianist played/sang songs that were very up-to-date. I caught myself singing aloud a couple of times. :)

The food was good. Lots of nice sightseeing. Staff was attentive. We left additional gratuity for our server. Cruise was smooth. The couple we took as a gift really enjoyed it as well.

Great event! They've changed (IMPROVED) A LOT since our last few cruises. The service was great. EXCELLENT (fresh & flavorful!) food, great music. We couldn't have asked for more/better!

This brunch cruise is worth the cost, especially if you are lucky to have a warm sunny day as we did.
The buffet-style food was OK, not great. The service could have... continued

Enjoyed the cruise. Plenty of good food and champagne to counter the rain. There was some good fun campiness to the event, and the tour guiding was minimized as to allow one to relax and enjoy the cruise.
