My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary on a dinner cruise last night, and I couldn't be happier. The service was perfect and cruising around Newport Beach Harbor was amazing. We both had a wonderful time.

The views were FANTASTIC. You know those post card pictures you see of the San Diego skyline at night? It really looks like that!! Stunning. We had the choice of being seated on the second deck with a band, or the first deck with a DJ. We were on the second deck with the band. The band played tasteful music before and during dinner. Overall: I would not hesitate to do this again and would definitely recommend it to everyone! It's a great value for a lovely evening. We chose the dinner cruise for our 5th wedding anniversary with the idea that making memories is more important than exchanging gifts. It was an excellent choice!
