We just went on the Hornblower cruise in Newport Beach onboard John Wayne's boat the Wild Goose. The ship is still in good shape and absolutely beautiful. We experienced the Sunday brunch which included all the champagne you can drink and all the food you can eat. The cruise was smooth and we had a great tour of Balboa Island, movies stars homes, and all the different landmarks of the harbor. The servers were amazing; Angel which was one of them did an amazing job at making sure we got everything we needed. Thank you for all your hospitality.

Awesome experience for my husband's 70th birthday. He is HUGE John Wayne fan. Came to Newport Beach from Tampa, Florida. Really enjoyed being on Wild Goose.
