We got lucky and got tickets for the Hornblower Parade of Light Cruise and Buffett. We have attended several events on the Hornblower and they never disppoint. The food is always so good. It was a buffett for this event and was well placed and several lines so hardly any waiting. There was salmon which my husband loved and I had the prime rib which was really tasty. They offered a holiday salad, with roasted veggies, roasted potatoes, selection of cheeses and rice. Everything was so good. There was a whole table of different desserts. The staff as always so helpful. Our waitress Elly was so much fun which made our time on the cruise even more enjoyable.

We loved this cruise. Captain Ernesto was so personable and fun and funny and wonderful! We loved him. So like that he socialized with all of us. Our server Amy and the David James in the dining room were so efficient and personable. This was the best brunch cruise we have ever been on. We will definitely go again if we return to San Diego. I like that Captain Ernesto welcomed us onto the ship, a glass of champagne was handed to us as we boarded and then we were able to help ourselves to the buffet immediately. On other cruises we ran out of time to go up on deck and see the sights. We had plenty of time for the meal and then the sightseeing. Perfect cruise!! We will definitely do this again when we return to San Diego.

Beautiful cruise of the Harbor - both north and south. Narrator was very knowledgeable and personable. Close-up view of the spectacular US Navy ships docked in San Diego.
Dinner is served in the enclosed, glass-surrounded cabin. Seating also on top deck.
Full cash bar and snack bar open during cruise. Good bathroom facilities onboard.
Be sure to bring sunglasses and a sweater or jacket. Very breezy near bridge.

We enjoyed our 2 hour north and South Bay cruise. The narration was very informative and was easy to hear. Bring a jacket, as the bay can be very windy, especially heading south. I felt it was tacky for them to announce at the end of the cruise that they accept tips. A bucket would have been acceptable, but asking for additional money runs me the wrong way.
