We ate at Joe's Crab Shack before we went. They had stuff to eat but not things to fill you up.

If you are a later guest you will be stuck with a table on the downstairs inside. It was stuffy in there. I spent the time out front..standing the whole time. So were the people who had the prime reserved tables!

The website gave me the impression that the bar does not take credit cards & is cash only; however, they do take cards & you can leave a tab open on it.

The garage is adjacent to the boarding dock, very convenient for a flat fee of $10.

There are restaurants right on the dock if you are hungry, only snack foods onboard, cocktails are great on the yacht.

Unless you are able to secure a metered parking spot...none available for the 04:30 trip, you will pay $1.50 per half hour at the main city parking lot located right next door to old Sacramento area....$3/ hour adds up especially if you are visiting old Sacramento, shopping, eating, strolling around and then taking the cruise.....

Parking in Old Sacramento is usually by the hour with meters or in the garage, but since Gold Rush Days was happening, the streets were blocked off so we had to park in the garage for a fixed amount.

It would have been more enjoyable if other people had left their portable music behind. It was difficult to hear the history talk - I caught a few keywords and an occasional sentence. I was sitting 4 feet from the narrator. Weather was nice and I enjoyed the boat trip.

I have a handicap placard so didn't have to pay for parking, however be warned that if you park in one of the metered spaces outside of the lot, parking is limited to 2 hours.

The weather was warm outside but windy and cool on the water.. I wore a t-shirt & jeans but I would suggest bringing/wearing a sweater or wind-breaker just in case..

The weather was sunny and a bit windy. I wore a dress but I suggest pants or capris due to the wind if you are going to stand outside..

Use Old town Sacramento parking garage and walk two blocks to launch site. Have a drink or a meal in Old Town and have your parking validated. Hornblower cruises does not! There is also a closer parking garage next door to the comedy club, but I cannot vouch for them.
