Drinks are high priced (as expected), small soda about $5. No ice tea or coffee. Food was ok and enough to fill up on.

The weather was It was a sunny summer day (late June), it was very warm on the boat - the third floor was the only one with air conditioning it initially, after the first 45 minutes or so the other floors started to cool down. No sweater/shirt needed, I think even if you were outside.the boat was very warm. I wore shorts/jeans, cotton shirt, sandles.

This event was a bit of a disappointment. The whole point for us was to see the bay Parade of Lights, which was canceled at the last moment because of the rain and poor turn-out (no fault of Hornblower's, this). But boarding time was scheduled...continued

This was a 2 hour harbor cruise with appitizers and a glass of chamagne. There was to be a boat parade but that got canceled due to weather. We did get to see some off the boats before they canceled. I would recommend this event for next year...continued

It was great although the parade of lights was cancelled we still had a good time. The only problem was that we boarded late and had to stand in the rain but the food was good, the service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
