  • My husband and I are so happy that we chose the Hornblower for our wedding day. I still can't believe how much fun our wedding day was. We were both stress free and genuinely impressed at how simple, yet memorable our wedding turned out to be. Kudos to Kristie and Kelly for their exceptional service! The crew on board were amazing! The FOOD WAS PHENOMENAL. And the wedding cake. OMG! That was divine. They made everything so seamless. I definitely recommend to brides who doesn't want to stress out about the tiny details on their wedding day!

  • I got married on the Hornblower Inspiration with their intimate wedding package in December 2015. This was my second wedding and I am blown away still by how wonderful it was. Small intimate and exactly what we wanted. The staff was top notch answering any and every question. We were able to write our own vows to include my son in the ceremony. The view is AMAZING the food fantastic. I was completely stress free the entire process and its a great value. I cannot recommend Hornblower enough THANK YOU! And.. added bonus visit where it all began on your anniversary for a brunch or dinner cruise.

  • We had a limited budget and wanted a small and intimate wedding. Hornblower Cruises was just the perfect venue for us! From the moment you step on the boat, you are greeted by friendly crew and offered a glass of champagne. The food is cooked right there on the spot and it is absolutely delicious! And the view.... oh, the view! What better place to get married than in the middle of San Diego bay while going under the Coronado bridge!

  • We have not had our wedding yet but the Hornblower has been amazing! They do so many of the little details and allowed me to have more time for the fun aspects without having to worry about the menu, tables, and other details of the venue. The value is amazing and I have had nothing but pleasant conversations with the wedding planners.

  • We had a lovely day on our Hornblower wedding cruise with a great on board team, after already having been supported extremely well at every step by their office team (Kristie and Rachael answered every single email as fast as possible, they even ensure we could meet at the most convenient location for me...despite that being quiet a distance from their office. The food was great, staff were super friendly and keen to please: the captain even did an extra loop around the sea lion colony as our flower girls and boys were so amazed by them! Everything was just as we had hoped for, couldn't have wished for a better wedding day (and that sentiment was confirmed by all our guests too who assured me they had a wonderful day)

  • We had our vow renewal ceremony on 3/29/2014 and my coordinator was Monique Cinquemani. She was fabulous! Helped me plan everything from out of state and for 6 months we e-mailed back and forward about the details to make sure everything was what I wanted it to be. The day of the ceremony was a dream! Monique coordinated everything so that it went smoothly and my guests had the best time ever! The food was top notch and all the guests were excited when the ship started moving while we enjoyed our dinner and the views! If you want something elegant and intimate, this is the perfect venue for you! Everyone is STILL Talking about how much fun they had!

  • For the same price as a rehearsal dinner in a downtown restaurant, my husband and I had a wonderful 3-hour dinner cruise with Hornblower Cruises. Besides the actual cruise itself, a lovely fajita buffet with churros for dessert and alcohol (beer, wine, sangria and margaritas) are included in price per person. It was awesome!!!! We rented the Renown, which is the smallest boat in their fleet. Yet, with its wooden paneling and 1940's charm, it was such a sophistiated venue for an intimate gathering. My husband's family is from England and had never been to San Diego and/or met my family. This was a great way for our families to mingle over drinks and a delicious Mexican meal. It was pretty cloudy that evening but we still got a good view of the skyline from the water. The customer service from Hornblower has been phenomenal. They were always quick to communicate with us about all the details. My sister-in-law is gluten-free and they went out of their way to accommodate her... Read more

  • What a dream to get married on the Hornblower in San Diego. If you want a unique wedding experience for everyone....this is the best choice for experience AND price! Food, better than a high end steak house! Salmon and filet mignon was to die for. The wedding coordinator on the boat and the bartender/server were so amazing. The DJ played every single song we requested him to play. The only complaint.....it wasn't long enough! It was 4 hours, but man...only one more hour would have been perfect! Kinda alot to cram into 4 hours, but the staff did it perfectly and gave everyone a night they will never forget! We highly recommend the sunset cruise....beautiful! Don't waste your $ on your usual, traditional wedding venue. This is the greatest idea in the world. My husband and I have gone on the Valentines Hornblower cruise as well since we loved our wedding so much! If you have a party of 30 people or less....the Renown is an adorable, vintage boat and it's perfect for small groups. Take a ... Read more

  • Hornblower was an amazing experience beginning to end. First off, the wedding coordinator Monique was a blessing in answering all of my questions to the tee and insuring the process went smoothly. The only downfall is the lack of time on the boat prior to the ceremony so it is slightly rushed. Also, with the main entrance being on the street, the groom will surely see you before the start of the ceremony. The dining area was freezing as well, with all 20 of my guests complaining about it, as well as other people from other parties. Other than that, the food was excellent and the staff was amazing. We had our cake done by hornblower to avoid the additional fee, and for the price it was delicious and perfect. They accomodated our color requests and it turned out perfect. Super moist and delicious frosting! I would definitely recommend this to someone who is looking for a wedding that is classy, yet simple. All of my guests loved the ceremony and the freedom of not feeling hassled driving... Read more

  • We had our Engagement Party on the ship and it was perfect. Staff were friendly and helpful, though there were some minor hiccups during the night and in the planning process, the actual party went smoothly. Had a great, memorable time! Looking forward to coming back for another fun trip!

  • I am so glad we had our wedding on the Hornblower Emerald! It was a unique venue for our out of town guests to really see San Diego. The food and service was great, we loved our wedding cake, and the captain even slowed down by Seaport Village when fireworks were going off during the Summer Pops concert. It was perfect! My only complaint is that I did not know that we could not open the retractable roof after the yacht departed and I wish someone would have told me about that. Otherwise, I would highly recommend Hornblower to any bride. None of our guests got seasick and they were all raving about how much fun they had.

  • From the get go Hornblower was amazing. Jill responded to my inquiry right away and worked with our schedule to show us the yacht. Once we booked Kristie Bryant was a dream to work with. Communication was fantastic, I always knew what was going on, and Kristie was always willing to show me the yacht as many times as I wanted. The day of staff were amazing as well. DJ the event manager was always making sure everything was the way I wanted and checking in with me and Aaron the bartender made the best drink suggestions. Finally the FOOD! Best wedding food I've ever had. I'm still hearing back from my guests about the prime rib and the cheesy potatoes. My mom even wanted to take the leftovers home in a Tupperware container! I couldn't have picked a better venue. How many people can say that got married on a yacht?!?! Thank you Hornblower for an amazing day.
