Beautiful Views, Limited Menu for the Money
, Jun 2021
For the price I expected a larger menu and better quality of food. You got the choice of Salmon, Braised Short Rib, Baked Chicken and a Vegetable dish. One glass of wine or beer could have at least been included in the price. The dessert, chocolate cake, was a dry muffin with raspberry around the plate with nuts sprinkled on top. I loved the views but was no impressed with the menu. The food wasn't bad tasting but not what I paid for. It listed a band but it was a DJ.

A great experience. The warmth and hospitality shared by all members of the crew and the wait staff beats any tour experience in the Bay Area. Thank you for turning a simple cruise into the sail of a lifetime. Special thank you to Sarah who serviced our appointed table. Some places do remember how to accord dinner experience and this is my proud choice to recommend. This cruise and crew meets COVID regulations in the most systematic and thoughtful methods and upheld with the comfort and charm of still being human and relatable. A rare gem in 2021. See you again soon. Some bridges are meant to be crossed… with Hornblower, you don’t cross alone. Thank you for upkeeping this experience.
Exceeded Our Expectations!!!
