Less expensive direct from Hornblower

, Aug 2019
The experience was generally good. Meal was good and scenery excellent. However, I could of saved 30-40% booking directly with Hornblower. The only difference between the $136 luxury dinner cruise and Hornblower's price of $89 was a $30 bottle of california "champaign" (ship prices) . Supposedly guaranteed window seats, but there was plenty of window seating for all. Not a yacht as advertised, just their normal harbor tour boat. Menu on Viator was not correct and required a last minute change by our party (at additional $$. Nice cruise and dinner, but NOT worth $136 (barely worth $89).

Dinner date for her Birthday

The Captain gave us a warm greeting as well as the crew and our server. Once we were seated she went rite into the menu explanation as far as whats included and whats not. Food was served hot and the Salmon was FRESH!!! My girl had the short rib and couldn't finish it. So I had the pleasure of enjoying that too, TASTY!! Views of the Bay, Naval port and homes were breath taking as we were out on a clear night. Dessert was a delicious cheesecake. After a few dances and drinks the guests loosened up and had lots of fun. Will be doing this again and again!!

Check in easy. All of staff super friendly and kind. Food was very good and well prepared. Route taken to and around Shelter Island was enjoyable as well as going under Coronado Bridge. Would have liked it to have been a no smoking trip as it was hard to enjoy being outside. Overall experience was wonderful and relaxing.

*Edit to add* looking at the description again, they say each couple gets “a bottle of champagne”. This is not the case. You each get a GLASS of champagne. Each additional is an extra cost. We opted for a glass of water and a glass of apple cider. Again, they charge extra for the extra glass of apple cider. I gave mine to my date. We did the “luxury dinner cruise”. Go ahead and ignore that dress code they list. While I was dressed up and my date was, a lot of people were wearing casual clothes. Sweatshirts, shorts, flip flops. The good: The captain seemed very friendly and the DJ was very nice. The gentleman at the bar was pleasant. The ride was smooth and the views were amazing. The bad: When we sat down to the table and after boarding was complete, Annie, our waitress came over and explained the menu. She made a note to let us know that we should order upgrades early to ensure they have the food available. When she came back for our dinner order she told us she’s only taking main course orders for now. We wanted to order an appetizer but we waited because she seemed in a rush. She asked us about drinks but neither of us were drinking alcohol. I requested more water. While waiting for water, I watched alcoholic drinks come to everyone who ordered it. I ended up getting up and getting my own water and water for my date. By now we are so hungry. We ate our salad and still waited for someone to take our order for dessert and appetizers. No one ever came so we finally flagged her down. I ordered the artichoke and spinach gratin that was described on the menu as coming with baguettes. Instead what came was cold spinach dip with crackers. I would not have paid an extra $9 had I known they had no more bread. I was pretty upset since we already paid over $200 for this. Dinner was decent. I had ordered the upgraded strawberries and cream dessert. This was described as strawberries and cream with Grand Marnier. What I got was a martini glass with a couple of strawberries, tons of raspberries and blueberries and a bit of whipped cream. I went back and read the menu and it certainly didn’t mention that the “strawberries and cream” was actually “mixed berries and cream”. No one let us know how to get our photos that were taken on our way in. We had to ask another guest. I wasn't going to cough up another $20 after the whole "water crackers with $9 luke warm app" thing.
