The staff was very friendly and my server Sadae was exceptionally wonderful. The food was excellent and the DJ was very entertaining. I was so happy when he announced that my granddaughter had graduated recently. It was a wonderful experience. Also because was my granddaughter’s graduation celebration and she was given a surprise complementary dessert that really made her feel special. I could not have been happier with my experience! My husband and granddaughter felt the same way!

The Greatest Experience
Ashley_Q
, Jun 2022
I was very nervous because it was my first time being on a boat and with my pregnancy I thought I would be sick. It actually turned out to be the one of the Greatest experiences I had and celebrating my husband birthday as well, he had a Blast. The sights were Beautiful and the service was amazing. The food I was worried my Husband won’t like but it turn out to be the best food. I love the fact they change the trays when running low. Thank you for a Great experience we will be back and with our children as well.

Very friendly and nice staff. Music was very loud and disruptive to us. There were 2 groups of high school graduates on the upper deck. Everyone should ask about the passenger makeup.

I had a wonderful time EXCEPT when we attempted to purchase drinks. The waiter wasted 1/2 hr attempting to use their system. I finally demanded he call a supervisor who told him to write the drinks up. Very frustrating. After that everything was WONDERFUL....Food drinks..seats..the trip.

Had a really good time. Food was good and staff was friendly. They even played good music. Only thing was the drinks that we ordered separately from the buffet took an extremely long time to come.

HornBlower Brunch Cruise 07/242021..
Jennifer_A
, Jul 2021
The views was definitely beautiful, we got to learn some history. The hospitality was very poor, we sat at our table for more than 1/2 hour and no one came to welcome us or ask what we needed. I decided to order drinks with the scan bar code and the tip was included and then asked to pick up drinks at bar. The drinks were weak and my Long Island Ice tea was lemon down🤦🏾‍♀️. My order was paid through my Apple Pay, but when we finally dock, and on leaving the ship then we’re were yelled by one of the crew to return because we did not pay our tab.. Wow now mind you the same waiter that was told twice that we needed him at the table was now appearing for the tab we paid for how embarrassing. He appears after the end to get paid and his excuse was, he was busy with other tables. Service needs to be more professional and the older bartender (male) does not know how to mix drinks. The food staff was also confuse in arranging the table and there was not a variety of food. Mimosa should have been added for free to every ticket purchase. I want to thank Alex who apologized for the situation. If I should take this cruise again I hope that our experience will be different.
