Really fun activity to do if you're in San Diego! Only reason I gave it 4/5 stars is because there wasn't any social distancing while waiting in line to board. Other than that, I'd definitely come again :)

I wanted to see the sunset, feel the breeze through my hair, and take amazing photos with my love! Mission Accomplished. I also sat at a dirty table and there was a bunch of trash on the floor in most of my photos. I guess you can’t have it all. They don’t clean the boats in between the cruises..... so if you get on the last cruise... welp!

I think if you want to enjoy a harbor dinner cruise wait til the pandemic is over. Because of restrictions, my wife and I were Not impressed. One waiter for our floor. He was bartender plus our waiter. He hustled but just didn’t have the time. No music plus tables were far apart. The environment was not enjoyable.
