" We had a great time and I would recommend this dinner / cruise to anyone . People were friendly and made the whole trip a great experience . The food was good as was the champagne . LOL They had live entertainment and dancing as well . Great sight seeing too ."
"It was an amazing experience cruising around in San Francisco. I'd have to say though that the food wasn't as great as I had expected. It was decent, but not the best. The live band was awesome! They were really good! And my hubby was listening intently to their music!"
