5 stars on YELP - The Hornblower Dinner Cruise around San Diego was phenomenal. There are many reasons to describe the perfection that revolved around our night. My girlfriend came to visit from New Jersey and booked us on a Tuesday night to do something different and have fun. I am in the Navy and have been in San Diego for about a year, and would recommend this cruise to anyone I meet in the future. On with the review. Price - Yes. It's a pricey attraction for 3 hours, but definitely not bad enough to ruin the night before you even step onto the ship. For the price, we received and incredible night, incredible service, and unbelievable views of San Diego. You are on a nice cruise ship floating around the city. Get past the the price and look forward to an awesome night, and you'll be sure to have a blast. The service was unbeatable as well as a large part of the reason this attraction was well worth the price.Overall - The answer is yes, we'll be coming back. This was a 5 star cruise and they've done everything right. This happens every night of the year so you can plan it on any occasion at any time. Go in planning on having a fun time and you're going to have a great time with dinner and dancing. Thank you to the crew for helping us to have an awesome night!

Dennis and I would like to take a moment to drop you a note to let you know that we had a wonderful experience on the Dinner Cruise on August 29, 2013. We had a party of seven and had the upgraded Celebration Package. The champagne and table decorations were delightful and it was great to have a window table. The crew, especially Captain Joe, First Officer Chris and Dining Manager, Scott, were very professional and made sure that all guests were safe, full and happy. Additionally the wait staff were attentive and competent. The disco lady was very organized and made the effort to include all of the "special" celebrations of all attending. We had a birthday and anniversary in our group of seven. All were recognized and favorite songs played. We have been on events with the Hornblower on many occasions and are never disappointed. Keep up the good work!
