Nice brunch cruise
, Sep 2021
The brunch buffet was delicious. The cruise was very nice. The wait staff was very attentive. The paper work said that gratuities were included but only the service fees were. We still needed to tip the wait staff. They did an excellent job though.
Great experience
, Aug 2021
The overall experience was great. The food was delicious, not a lot of food choices, but I don’t eat a lot so it was okay. Drink refills keep coming which was nice. The only thing I did not like was people did not have on their mask while getting their food. At least they should have In forced it while getting your food.
Time spent with Mom

Great time spent with my mom. The Chef and crew were all so professional and inviting. We will definitely do it again.

Great cruise
, May 2021
Just not long enough to enjoy your lunch/breakfast and go to the top for 15 minutes and then we were home. Needs to be 3 hours not 2. Otherwise the people were all very nice and helpful. Learned a lot about the boat from one of your servers. Great experience and would do it again.
Don’t use the 3rd party piece of crap
, Apr 2021
The ship crew was excellent. Really a first class experience. But don’t use Viator. Poor customer service from the jump. Book you, take your money and no guarantee seating. Just go straight through hornblower. The captain and crew were unbelievable
