    Great food, great atmosphere, outstanding server in Stephanie. Friends enjoyed it as well! Can’t wait to go again!
    Decent cruise
    , Aug 2022
    The cruise was nice overall. We were the early bird so took the 11am cruise - what I liked was you can check in earlier than 11am and start enjoying the food and drinks. Amazing service. But there was no live music or anyone announcing special events on the cruise and no one telling us details on the places we were passing which ended up being a bit boring.
    Bottomless Birthday cruise

    Chloe was our server and she did an excellent job. Our glasses were never empty. The food was great. Loved all the variety to choose from.

    Lovely brunch cruise!
    , Jul 2022
    We enjoyed our brunch cruise. The ship was bigger than expected, but it was beautiful with large windows next to each table. The food was excellent, and the scenes from either the deck or the windows were extraordinary. I wish we had worn dressier clothes, so that would be recommended.
    Very Enjoyable Experience

    The Admiral Hornblower ship has nice big windows all around so you can see the harbor from any location on board. The food was outstanding from the roast rib eye & turkey to the fruit & salads. The wait staff was very attentive & kept the champagne flowing.

    We like the cruise but we didn't like our waitress attitude to following us around the ship after lunch and asking us for leaving her Tip!

    We had a wonderful time. The crew/servers were super friendly and made it a fun experience. The food was delicious. I would like to see more vegan choices. It’s great to be greeted on board with a glass of bubbly. May I to suggest to have an option of a glass of non alcoholic champagne?

    The. Vessel did not leave the dock due to “high” waves. We were all afternoon in the city, and we did not see any “high” waves

    The food was very cafeteria like and the desserts come from Costco. No fresh egg station or French toast. They had frozen dollars silver pancakes. 100 dollars a head for what??? I would never again!!
