Description:
Experience the coastline of Southern California from a dazzling (and delicious!) perspective — from the supreme comfort of a Champagne Brunch Cruise in Orange County!

Step aboard one of the area's most exceptional yachts, where a top-notch crew member will greet you and escort you to your private table. The bottomless bubbly and cider will begin as soon as you're settled in and ready to embark on a Sunday of unparalleled scenery, entertainment, and cuisine.

Relax at your table for a bit before heading to the brunch buffet. Or explore the ship as your Marina Del Rey or Newport Beach cruise begins its float on serene harbor waters. Soak up some fun in the sun, leisurely strolling the stylish outdoor decks. Laugh along with the playful bark of passing sea lions. Capture countless smiles and magnificent scenery on camera. And delight in stunning views of islands, beaches, sea life, celebrity mansions, and other Orange County attractions.

Nothing is better paired with these remarkable views than a lavish buffet that's second to no other Orange County brunch. Savor a spread that comes with classic American breakfast favorites, seasonal lunch fare, and more sweet temptations on a dessert table than you can count!

Feeling satisfied? Then kick back and relax at your table, letting the sweet sound of background music continue to serenade you. Or snag a space on the deck, enjoying the company of family, friends or your special someone on board. Sip a coffee or tea —or another glass of champagne!— and soak up some fresh air, sunshine, and the tranquil sounds of waves and water.

"The ship was great the food was wonderful along with the unending champagne. However, was very disappointed that there was no monologue regarding of who lived where, history of the area, etc. Although the Wild Goose was docked next to us, no mention of John Wayne. Not even when we passed the place where his home used to be. There is so much history and interesting stories to be told of the area, it is a shame that out-of-towners and out-of-staters never heard any of it. Perhaps someone in the cruise company should take a cruise on one of the smaller companies that do provide an interesting monologue, to increase the enjoyment of the experience."

"Took my boyfriend for a late Father's Day present. We enjoyed the cruise. The waitstaff was friendly, and they kept the champagne rolling. A longer cruise would be nice."
