Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make changes to my reservation? +

For changes to your order, you must contact our customer service center at (866) 302-2469.

How do you accommodate for food allergies? +

Our vessels do not permit any outside food, however, for specific dietary requests, please call us to ensure we are able to accommodate your concerns.

While we do our best by trying to offer gluten and allergy free products as well as gluten sensitive menu items, we openly handle several allergens throughout our galleys. While we take precautions to keep ingredients separate, we cannot guarantee a gluten free environment. We do not have separate prep surfaces, cook tops or equipment. Our chefs prepare and cook in common areas with shared equipment, therefore the items may come in contact with other food products.

How does the charter process work? +

Great question! Check out our "New to Event Planning" page for full details. If you still have questions, don't hesitate to give us a call.

Is my boat wheelchair accessible? +

The majority of our fleet decks and restrooms are able to accommodate most standard-sized wheelchairs. We ask that for specific accessibility concerns you please call the local Hornblower number and ensure that you are seated on an accessible deck.

Will I have cell service onboard? +

Most cellular services are available on the water as we do not cruise beyond one mile off shore.
