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!!

Not happy Your Reps dropped the ball
Dexx_S, Mar 2024
Well we book the 7pm dinner cruise....noone told us as we arrived at 610pm that all the parking along side the dock area was 3 hrs only...mind you the cruise itself is 3hrs we would still have to dock and deboard and hope to not have a $250 after calling your csr rep...we explained that we needed a 4hr parking so she gave us an address she said was 6min away after going to the parking... not only was it not 4hrs, it was only 2hrs, so we have to now travel farther away to spend $40 at an ace parking for 4hrs.....then barely make it to the boat to be told parking is free after 6pm🤬🤬🤬 This was a total disregard for your customers... to not have clear parking directions on your site, but then when we speak with a rep, they don't even know the correct parking details....we will never patronage this cruise line again
Fun trip.
NEIL_W, Oct 2023
The reception at arrival was great.. The 3 course meal was good, we loved it. The purpose of our trip was to have a great time and to dance the night away, unfortunately the music was not good and the DJ did not play music that anybody liked, therefore nobody danced at all.
First of all I didn’t...
Christine_F, Sep 2023
First of all I didn’t choose this cruise the one I chose was switched to this. I was charged 311.00 for a cruise that costs under $100. It was horrible! I chose a plated dinner and was switched to a buffet. The menu with appetizer options to purchase , I was told the person who stocks the boat didn’t. So no appetizers. Then the desert option was a granola unflavored option. During the buffet. The food was flavorless and no salt. This was literally a geriatric cruise. They totally scammed me!!!! The DJ was lame ! Old music. At one point it was like a school dance . Couples only now , constantly begging people to get on the dance floor. Do not purchase this cruise !!! Even the cheesy time on the water wasn’t worth it. Thanks for ruining a special time with my daughter and over charging without saying a word to my face as I checked in . Horrible
Highly recommend
Betty_G, Sep 2023
Great Anniversary experience I loved coming here. I would highly recommend the food was very delicious
Horrible service from Felisha
Madison_B, Sep 2023
Overall, the food was delicious, great views and entertainment; however, our server felisha made our experience an awful one. The entire night we felt as if we were being an inconvenience. At the end of the night when it came time to pay, we were given an option to tip up to 20 % off of our $100 tab. So, we tipped the 20%, and our server felisha approached our table and said that we did not tip her enough. I found this extremely rude and unprofessional considering it was a classy environment.
Manfred_A, Sep 2023
Can’t complain about the food. It was very good. Had the Salmon, Salad, and Choclate cake. For anyone visiting San Diego, this is a must! And this is something you could do over and over again, not a one time and done deal. DJ played songs that made me get up out of my chair and dance. Dance floor filled up. Everyone was having an excellent time. Worth every penny! Would do again!
Pricy for the quality of food served
Robert_T, Sep 2023
Spirits were pricy but staff were very friendly. Food was average, should have been a better quality for the price of $3111.
Misleading Listing. This is not a dinner cruise, it’s an overpriced booze cruise.
Jonny_M, Aug 2023
We were sold an elegant dinner cruise, and instead experienced a club/booze cruise environment. Half the guests came clearly expecting an elegant dinner, as the listing sold, the other half came expecting to party. We were pushed up onto the top deck to avoid having to yell to hear each other above the DJ while seated at our table, and once on the top deck were greeted with the pungent smell of other guests smoking marijuana. We have reached out for a refund, as this was our first vacation in five years, and haven’t received anything yet.
Amazing views

Paul_J, Aug 2023
We really enjoyed seeing the beautiful skyline as the sun was setting as well as the good food and fun atmosphere.
Not worth the money
Neal_K, Aug 2023
Staff was excellent but food was so so and not very good. DJ was good but not very interactive until last 5 minutes of cruise. Smooth waters and you can see land on both sides
The service and food and music was excellent!
Susan_M, Jul 2023
I met my girlfriend who lives in Washington in San Diego to celebrate her birthday. The highlight of our trip was the plated dinner cruise!

Malcolm_A, Jul 2023
The whole experience was memorable to the very end! Lots of fun for couples and birthday celebrations
The experience was fun...
Katie_T, Jun 2023
The experience was fun and the food was really good. We enjoyed the small intimacy of the dining area and being able to roam the ship during the cruise.
The only thing negative...
Daniel_B, Jun 2023
The only thing negative was the lack of a sunset, but that’s Mother Nature. If we’re ever visiting San Diego again, this is the first thing we are booking. Great memory.
We will not do it again
Rocky_B, Jun 2023
The waiter explained to us that according to the menu that gratuity was not included. The menu did not say that anywhere. The food was not good. I ordered a medium rare steak, it was well done & tough. The sites were nice & enjoyable.
Good service and view...
Jennifer_C, Jun 2023
Good service and view perfect place for a holiday or special occasion. I would recommend this cruise
Noah_G, May 2023
Food wasn’t what we expected. Steak was overdone, the tomatoes weren't fresh and most of the food tasted microwaved.
John_S, May 2023
Sold me tickets for a tour that does not exist!!!! Got a refund, but ruined the evening for my family!!!!
