“Newport Beach Dinner Cruise”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

My husband and I had such a wonderful romantic time it was a beautiful cruise and the food was amazing. I have celiac disease. When we signed up for the cruise they asked if anyone had any allergies I noted that I had a gluten allergy and the staff at Hornblower bent over backward to make me special food and they were all so attentive....A special shout out to the Chef Sahid, our server Christina and the DJ.
We recommend the Newport Beach dinner cruise to anyone I would go back in a heartbeat.
It was AMAZING !!!!

“Excellent Time, Terrific Food”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We were part of a birthday celebration for a good friend and we were excited. This dinner cruise takes you to the harbor end and back.

The food was exceptional, especially considering they were getting about 80 plates out. Baguettes to start with a nice pesto dip and butter, followed by perfectly done salmon and vegetables, then a meat course of short ribs and mashed, followed by a pretty good creme brulee.

Beautiful scenery, then some dancing downstairs to top it off. A good mix of music, something for everyone. We were back at the dock at 10:30...

We WILL be doing this one again. With service like this, you want to come back...

“Fabulous birthday dinner cruise”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

This is a great choice for a birthday or anniversary. You are seated at a table on the dining deck, which also features a bar and d.j. who will play your requests. My friend ordered us bottles of champagne and we were also given nice glasses to take home. We all received a boxed chocolate. The meal started with baguettes and spread, then salad, then salmon with vegs, then filet mignon with fingerling potatoes, and then a sumptuous dessert. We spent the rest of the time dancing. you can go out on the deck for a better view or up to the next level. It lasted three hours and made for some great memories. Very nice service.
