Full description
The three-hour Dinner Cruise combines culinary excellence – think crisp salads, braised ribs and over roasted salmon entrees, and luscious desserts – with unforgettable scenery and ambient music.  This Nightly Dinner cruise is famous around the world and is compared to the dinner cruises in New York and in Paris. San Diego’s dinner cruise combines breathtaking city views, great food, and drinks.  Stroll the spacious decks, watch the sunset before dinner. Dinner is buffet-style with an elaborate wine list, upgrades and additions, and vegetarian option. After dinner, listen to relaxing music, as you enjoy your dessert and coffee. Photos are taken at beginning of the cruise, can be purchased at the end! You’ll be thrilled to know that your dining experience does not have cruise-style seating, you’ll have privacy at your table and not be seated with strangers.

    Let's be honest here... You go on this cruise for the cruise. Our food was hit and miss. My partner had the salmon and I had the ribs. The salmon was pretty good, but nothing fancy. The ribs were fantastic but the bbq sauce was *horrible* my carrots were soft on the outside but hard in the center. Mashed potatoes were good. Salad was amazing. Drinks were phenomenal, but expensive. $12 each. Dessert was great as well. Go for the cheesecake! Creme brulee was not worth +$9 imo. The only real negatives were that the dress code was not enforced at all and we were on a boat with a highschool band. Seemed odd that they said specifically no jeans but nearly all of the kids and teachers were wearing jeans... But the cruise itself was very pretty and the boat was nice and the weather was perfect. Oh, and the dj was...trying way too hard.

    All staff was very professional and made our experience feel very luxurious. Our waiter Chance overheard our wish to have a window seat and took it upon himself to speak with a manger to have our table moved. Dinner was great from start to finish; artichoke dip, salad, braised ribs, dessert. We left with full, happy bellies. The bartender made amazing drinks that were on and off the menu. Even though he was the only one to serve all guests, we received our drinks quickly. Also, when ordering the same drink, his consistency in taste was impressive. I was expecting things to become a little more lively towards the end of our cruise though. Understanding the changes around COVID, the overall vibe just seemed to fizzle fast.
