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.

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.
