Great weekend entertainment.
I thought this cruise and tour was very good.
Lovely night out in good setting. The dessert with candle was a nice touch for the birthday celebration.
We had to adjust the date that we did this excursion and the Viator staff (Michele D) went above and beyond to assist.
Nice cruising in SF bay, good food but not much entertainment... No dance...
The staff was very nice, but the food was cold and not very good.
They were late picking us up and it was freezing cold that evening.
They did try to make it up with a free glass champagne.
Inspite of all that we had a good time because of others on the cruise.
I had been on a dinner crusie in New York and thought doing a cruise on San Francisco bay would be great, but it wasn't. We arrived at the pier and thought our boar was there. We went upto the gate, but it was boat for a private function. OK, so this boat would be leaving shortly when all the guests had arrived, then our boat would pull in and we could board. But no this did not happen, The private charter did not leave pier until 7.30pm, we were to board at 7.00pm. Our boat finally arrived, thinking great we can get out of the cold wind. No, this did not happen either. We stood out in the cold for another 20 minutes before they would let us on the boat. This was not a good start to the evening. We finally boarded, shown to our table upstairs by the window. Food was average and drinks are extra. Sites and lights of the bay, buildings and Sausalito were great. The band were good, but a bit loud, but hthey got many people up dancing.
The duration was short. Could be 4 hours. The "orchestra" could be better, much better. We like to dance.
We felt that there was not enough time in the cruise and felt it should have been longer. We had been served our dinner and then it was time to disembark. When I booked the cruise I thought everything was included until we were on the ship and found out that cocktails were on a separate bill as was the deserts. We were nearly docked before couples managed to get up and dance. Lighting was poor so it was difficult to read the menu.
The meal was very good, but we docked back by 21.30 too early. Just when we thought we were going to have a dance!
There was not much atmosphere on board! It supposed to be more alive and a bit more informal. Definitely change the starter from the menu. San Francisco and the captain made the trip magical especially the 360 rotation just before get back!
The service of the meal took too long. We finished the first course and waited 20 minutes for the main, same with the dessert. The standard of the food was good but lacked in presentation. By the time we finished the meal, the boat had docked and the staff were in a hurry to clean up and go home.
Not enough food. The salad was not what I expected. Very small portions. Had to eat when I got off the boat. The cruise was nice though.
