Fireworks Dinner Cruises on July Fourth


What a great time we had yesterday. We had so many comments on how wonderful the entire event went: private area, food, waiter, weather! Thanks again for all you did to help make my husband’s birthday celebration such a great event. We would recommend you and the Hornblower cruises to anyone.

From the “welcome aboard” glass of champagne to the farewell at disembarkation, the entire cruise was beyond our expectations. The appointment of staff to our every need and pleasure throughout the cruise created an evening to remember. The superb staff catered to our every anticipated necessity. The dinner menu was served with style and efficiency as well as delicious and appealing.
