Would not be worth the full retail price. The food was okay not spectacular and there was no real dessert besides the chocolate fountain. No one danced. Also, they knudge you to tip on the retail price of cruise instead of what you actually...continued

The boat is beautiful. The bay is gorgeous as is the view. Nice table by the window (some folks didn't get one) and room to walk around on the decks. Also little tables in bow of boat for more privacy - coffee, drinks, etc. Pleasant and...continued

My wife and I celebrated our 28th anniversary aboard the "California Hornblower" which was a surprise gift to her from me, and the experience

She commented to me that it had been...continued

We entertained out of town guests, and had a very nice time. The dining area is not very fancy, but the food very good. A wonderful way to see San Francisco at night. Added bonus was a stop outside Pac Bell Park to take in the sights of a night...continued

The food, cruise and the music was really good. The only reason I didn't give the event four stars is because of the mandatory gratuity. Hornblower automatically adds a 15% gratuity based on the full price of the cruise, regardless of the level...continued

I have been on other cruises with Hornblower cruises and expected a seat down dinner like other times. Instead it was a buffet style dinner and the food was not the best.

It was pretty good. The live band upstairs was nice, but downstairs where we were had a lot of noise from the engines and was sort of dingy and claustrophobic. Also, the music being played by the DJ was pretty dated.

The views from the boat...continued

This was the pinnacle of the vacation. It was our last evening in California before the trip back east, and we couldn't have asked for a more romantic, wonderful experience. Everyone was so nice and helpful. The dinner was great, the music was fun...continued

The cruise itself was very nice. However, I was surprised to find out that the dinner was a buffet. The food was very ordinary and nothing to rave about and cold. I later found out that those who dined on the top deck were offered a sit-down...continued

Cruise was cool! Suprised my wife on her birthday and we had a blast with another couple that came with us. Champagne toast was nice when we walked aboard. The only down side is the service. We went out on the bow for abour 30-45 minutes after...continued

My wife and I really enjoyed this dinner and dancing. The food was very good for the price and, although not everyone danced, many people danced to various music venues, e.g., oldies but goodies, latin, hip hop, soul, etc. The music was from a...continued
