The Brunch Cruise was very nice. We had a window table that allowed for clear views of the San Francisco skyline and the surrounding area. The staff was very nice and the service good. Nice trip to take a date, friends, or family.
The music was...continued

The brunch was great, the crew was attentive and we all had a lovely time celebrating an anniversary, a birthday and relatives visiting from Australia.

The brunch cruise was very nice but there was no air. They did not tell you there was no air until cruise had already started.One of my guest could not enjoy the meal because she had to go to outside to get air.I think we should get comps for that.

The cruise was so much fun! The staff was very friendly and did a great job of accommodating my large group. The music was a bit corny, but still very enjoyable. And the food was good too! I definitely recommend this!

The cruise was fantastic and a great deal. This was a great event to take my out-of-town guests to -- everyone loved it. I especially appreciated the outstanding service from the Hornblower staff. Thanks everyone!

The cruise was a great way to spend a Sunday. The food was ample and delicious and the mood was cheery. Definitely a great place to celebrate an occasion.

The food was very good and my guest from NY had fun. The music was not too loud or annoying. But then, I was on a different level than the pianist and instead had a guy playing jazz. I was annoyed that I was almost done with my plate of food...continued

The food was lovely and plentiful; the service was attentive; the pianist/tour guide was informative and friendly; the seating was comfortable. Our only complaint was that we didn't really get to take all the pictures we wanted because we were...continued

This event was so much fun. Great food, great service, great views, and bottomless mimosas! The waiters kept our glasses filled the entire boat ride. I am definitely going to do this again.

This is an excellent value, especially at the goldstar price!

The food: In chaffing dishes and kept warm. Basic brunch selections, nothing to write home about. The food was quickly replenished as needed and seemed to be fresh.

The Staff:...continued

This was a great experience. Boarding was smooth, and staff was friendly. It took about 30 minutes or so before we actually sailed off, but the staff had been serving champagne and mimosas as soon as they were able to. The live music was...continued

This was a great event, and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect (especially for SF)! They had a variety of food to eat, (more than we could eat). Although we were seated in the middle (not near a window), the other patrons on the ship...continued

Two thumbs up for sure! The boat was really nice, the food was actually much better than I expected. A lot of other reviews that I read said the food was not that good, but I was pleasantly surprised. And I have a pretty high standard, as I am...continued
