    We had a wonderful time. The crew/servers were super friendly and made it a fun experience. The food was delicious. I would like to see more vegan choices.

    The. Vessel did not leave the dock due to “high” waves. We were all afternoon in the city, and we did not see any “high” waves
    Brandi_D, Mar 2022
    The food was very cafeteria like and the desserts come from Costco. No fresh egg station or French toast. They had frozen dollars silver pancakes. 100 dollars a head for what??? I would never again!!
    Simply extraordinary I loved 🥰

    Carolina_M, Feb 2022
    Food was really good, service is excellent, the weather is always nice in SD so it’s a perfect year round experience.
    Viator should let me use my ticket still since I got left at dock and didn’t experience Premier Brunch
    Alyssa_R, Feb 2022
    Mind you I’m 32weeks pregnant and I did not get to experience the San Diego Premier Brunch Cruise because I was left at the dock. When trying to wave down crew members I was ignored, I waited 15min. trying to get on the boat before they departed. When asking if I can still used my ticket for another day cruise, I was not accommodated.
    Great local cruise
    Stanley_A, Feb 2022

    Great food, beautiful city, I loved all of the Navy vessel’s, gorgeous views, wonderful service and champagne!
    All around great event!
    JoAnne_W, Dec 2021
    Much nicer experience than we anticipated. The food was fabulous, service was excellent (except at the checkin desk), even the holiday decorations were quite elaborate.
    Sunday Brunch Cruise
    Leslie_W, Dec 2021
    The service and food were good. But for the price, I think there should have been more such as a little narration of the things seen while on the cruise. For example, the captain could have pointed out the Navy ship, Midway, and said some interesting information about it or the Coronado Bridge, when it was built, how long it took to build it, or some other interesting information about the bridge as well as interesting information about other sights along the way. Simply cruising around the harbor just was not sufficient.
