How was your experience?
The cruise was excellent, we had been on the same cruise about 6 years ago and wondered if the quality of the event was still good and it was. The buffet was well done, with a good selection of sides and salads. The carving station had ham and what looked like a pork roast. We all had the ham and it was tasty. Super waitress (Christina) she kept the champagne, coffee and OJ coming throughout the cruise. There was a guitarist who played requests and announced birtdays and anniversaries. It's not a glam gala event but a wonderful way to view the city and the bay. I was born in SF so the sites are home to me, but I think it would be a really nice thing to do if it was your first visit to the city. Good parking right at the boat $10 for the cruise and $20 for all day. It's nice that it is adjacent to the Ferry Building Marketplace - if you get there early for your cruise you can go do a quick browse of the shops. Even though we bought our tix at a discount through Gold Star we had great seats by the window. A+!
