This well-appointed ship offers a range of amenities, including an open-air observation deck, where you can enjoy fantastic views and take in some cool ocean breezes during your ride.
    Find your seat for dinner in the ship’s enclosed cabin, a setting that ensures a comfortable environment in both cool and warm weather. Depending on the cruise option you select, you’ll enjoy a meal of favorites like prime rib, steak, pan-seared salmon, chicken picatta or manicotti, plus salads and dessert. You can also choose to upgrade with an optional open bar, including unlimited beer, premium wines, well drinks and premium booze.

    Cruise was wonderful, prime rib was disappointing. Crew never asked how you wanted your prime rib, came out very very rare and some folks had to send it back to be put in a microwave to cook it more; very very fatty.

    We were able to attend the cruise on the bay of San Diego and were not disappointed in any way. Will do it again and again. The price of the cruise and dinner was money well worth it.
