Hornblower did an absolutely fantastic job! Our contact Julie made the event planning easy and fun! The crew on the boat did equally well. I am really glad I chose Hornblower as the guests raved about the boat and the food.

My partner and I had a fantastic time aboard the California last night. It was exactly what I had been searching for for a romantic evening together. Everything was impeccable: the staff were friendly, professional, and genuinely seemed as if they wanted to make sure we were having a good time. Julian, our server, was exceptional and paced our dishes well. We really enjoyed the mix of both DJ music for dancing and classical music for dining. We'll definitely tell our friends about the lovely time we had and are going to try a daytime cruise next! Very well done, Hornblower.
