We were on a yearly vacaion in San Diego and it was our friend Katrina's birthday. I decided to get half price tickets for the Happy Hour Cruise--with fees included it was $78.00 for the 4 of us. We sat on the entry level next to the bar in two...continued

I agree with most of the others--the cruise was wonderful. Appetizers were delicious and far more abundant than we expected. And the chocolate covered strawberries were wonderful! Our server was friendly and came back often with fresh hors...continued

I loved this cruise. Was short, sweet and simple. Appetizers were delicious, and the atmosphere was just right, not too crowded.

What a great way to kick off Memorial Weekend. The cruise covered a lot of ground & the crew was great. The cost of cocktails was quite reasonable.

I knew this cruise would be enjoyable and there would be appetizers aboard. But, I had no idea to what extent! There was a buffet with vegetables, fresh salsa, and the fixings for nachos. And as an added bonus, servers came around with plates of...continued

My husband and I enjoyed our Cruise around the harbor very much. The sights were fabulous and the food and drinks were excellent. Service was friendly and more than hospitable. The evening was a definite highlight of our 4 day stay in San Diego...continued

This was a surprize birthday treat for a friend visiting San Diego for the first time from the UK. There were five in our group. From the unhurried, well organized and punctual boarding to our eventual disembarkation, the trip was fantastic: the...continued

I would recommend this venue. It was very nice, relaxing and enjoyable. We cannot wait to invite a group of friends and go again. The staffs were without exception friendly, courteous, and welcoming. The other quests aboard were a mixed group...continued

Could be sweetly romantic. Appropriate for mature folk and strict relaxation.

My girlfriends (under 40) and I went for a "fun celebration" of their two birthdays; expected more funk.

Follow Goldstar's boarding direction.

The cheese...continued

"High Spirits" was a beautiful 1929 luxury yacht in her day...and we sat in the main saloon with beautiful wood walls and stuffed furniture. It made us feel like tycoons!
We loved our cocktails, the tray passed hot hord'oeuvrs, the sights of San...continued

This is the second cruise we have taken on a Hornblower boat. The food was very tasty and there was plenty of it. The staff was friendly and helpful and the bartender (she was alone behind the bar) was efficient and quick with a smile. I would...continued

Lovely time out on the water, generous bartenders, and better/hearty food. Great chatting with others - couples, families, and parties!

This was a fun trip. Appetizers were really good, wine was nice, and we actually cruised around the bay more than I thought we would. Service was friendly and hospitable. We never felt like they didn't want to be there. It was a nice evening...continued

This was a fun way to see the harbor and the city from the water. The evening beautiful and the cruise was long enough so we could see a lovely sunset. I was in town to visit a friend who had been on this cruise before and she also enjoyed it...continued

I give this cruise 3.5 stars, but it definitely has potential for 4 stars! My friends and I got tixs for friday night and missed the cruise ship by 3 minutes! Just letting everyone know the cruise ship leaves right on the dot. Hornblower was...continued

It was ok.

The "appitizers" were a joke- greasy frozen foods passed around on silver platters DOES NOT make it nice. Drinks are not free and the selection was minimal.

The crowd was not what I expected. I thought it was going to be young...continued

The cruise in itself was great but it started late and ended before sunset. I was a bit disappointed in the food....potato chips, veggies and dip, and chili dumped over frito lay corn chips that were still in their bag. Not very classy....I would...continued
