This is a lovely way to spend a birthday, anniversary or just a get-a-way for a few hours! The cruise around the bay is very relaxing and exciting at the same time.

The San Fran Dinner Cruise we did on the last night of our honeymoon in S.F and it was one fantastic night from start to finish. :) Everything about it is great. The staff welcome you in a friendly way, seat you at your table and the night starts from there. Watching the sunset as you set off is incredible. The food and live music is fantastic and to top it off passing under the famous Golden Gate is pretty breathtaking. Even if you just want a nice meal.. for the price you pay this is well worth it. We paid nearly double for a meal in the city with not even half the atmosphere as this cruise. Really great night.

It was a fantastic dinner cruise. The food portion was just right and tasted good. Our server Paul was very nice and was able to joke with us instead of being plain. The music was good

My only thing is don’t book with a third party. Book directly with hornblower. I paid extra for a window seat and didn’t get one due to the cruise messing up the seating. The manager said he can’t do anything about it. Something a manager should not say is he can’t do anything about it. I booked with Viator. Also, hornblower has a long wait time for the phones. Once I called Viator they gave me a partial refund. Other than that hiccup on my bf’s birtbday we had fun. We didn’t get our window seat which I recommend but I would do it again. The food was great, music was fun, and the views were exceptional. I highly recommend taking advantage of this. Also, our waiter was excellent!
