Paid for the complete package, including the drinks. Had a great night, really nice food, the staff were very prompt with the service and trying to make your night perfect. Good music playing upstairs and while we enjoyed the sights of the San Diego shore line. The night was topped off with a beautiful fireworks display right next to the boat.. Highly recommended..

This was a great experience. Our server was delightful. The food tasty and the drinks plentiful, just like all the harbor views. I think it was a great value and an incredible way to end our SanDiego visit.

We have been to San Diego for the first time ever and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it even though the temperature was in the low 80's. The dinner cruise was the best part of it all. My husband really enjoyed the meal, stating that it was the best prime rib dinner he has had. The night was great and the food was the best and overall great experience. Would recommend it to any one looking for a nice relaxing meal and a great way to see the lights of San Diego all in one shot.

We were looking for signs that said Viator not the local tour operator's name. I think you need better signage . It was not easy to find. The cruise and dinner was wonderful, it could have been warmer inside
