Everything was fantastic. Everyone in our entire group thought the dinner and cruise was the highlight of our three days in San Diego.

From the very beginning the sales staff did everything possible to meet our budgetary needs and accommodate us in any way possible. Every detail prior to the event was handled with the utmost efficiency. No questions were left unanswered.

I just wanted to thank you and the staff for making our holiday party a success. The service was friendly and the food was incredible. I can't remember a company holiday party where everyone had a good time. I hear nothing but positive feedback.
