Champagne Brunch was SO MUCH FUN!! The food was fantastic! Separate tables for pastries, hot items, cold items, fruits, fresh cut meats, desserts (YUM!) Free-flowing champagne (I definitely had at least a bottle.) The servers were very attentive. Great views, good food and overall a good time.

Everything was fantastic. Everyone in our entire group thought the dinner and cruise was the highlight of our three days in San Diego.
