    What time do I board the ship?
    The boarding time is 30 minutes prior to departure. Please allow yourself enough time for parking and to pick-up the boarding passes.
    Where is the best place to park?
    Due to the popularity of the San Diego Bay we recommend allowing a little extra time for parking. The closest parking lot available on a first come, first served basis is the Five Star Parking Lot located on the corner of Pacific Coast Highway & Broadway. There are also metered spots directly across from the dock. The meters have a 3-hour maximum Monday-Saturday until 6:00 PM (Subject to Change).

    As you board, the captain and marine crew will direct you to your deck. From there the host/hostess will show your party to your assigned table(s). Decks are never guaranteed to non-private groups. Seats are assigned based on needs and capacity for each cruise.
    What happens if it rains?
    The cruise takes place indoors and will run rain or shine. In the case of severe weather conditions or upon the direction of the U.S. Coast Guard, the ship will remain dockside.
    What kind of entertainment is on board?
    Brunch Cruises offer a relaxing selection of background music indoors and a narration of the bay on the outside decks.
    Can I bring a cake or flowers on board?
    Cakes that do not require refrigeration may be brought on board. You will be charged a $1.50 per person cake cutting fee (subject to change). You may bring flower bouquets.

    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    You're the best! Glad to hear you had a wonderful cruise.  Thanks, ​Brooke
    “Servers food music were great. Loved the experience”
    “My wife and I had a fabulous time. Very welcoming and tentative crew on board, good range of food on offer. Champagne was delicious and cold every time. Plenty of time to have a relaxing wander round and sit out on the deck.”
    “Food was great, drinks were great, the atmosphere was great! I'm vegan, and they totally catered to that, and gave me delicious "special" food :)”
    “A really wonderful experience. The wait staff was very accommodating and attentive the entire time. The food was also quite yummy, especially the quiche. Will definitely do this again.”
    “Food was reasonable...not a very good beer selection, staff were very nice and it was fun cursing on the bay. Check in was a little confusing would be nice to have better signage”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hey Al, Thanks for writing in. I'm glad to hear you had an enjoyable time sailing around the bay. I will be sure to relay your notes to Hornblower Cruises on providing better signage at check-in and possibly expanding their beer selection. Thanks again for your suggestions and have a wonderful week!  Best, ​Brooke
    “Pretty great trip! Would definitely this again!”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hey Katherine, Thanks for the comment on your experience. I'm glad to hear that the two of you enjoyed the cruise.  Let me know when you're ready to go again. Have a great day!  Best, ​Brooke
    “The boat was in great shape. The crew members were very nice. The buffet deserves mixed score: variety and quality high, but the hot food was not hot. Everything else was great. They need to keep their buffet serving temps higher.”
    “Wonderful 40th anniversary cruise!!”
    “My experience was awesome. The agent, Jennifer, was the best -- very nice and handled my trip with kindness and care. The Champagne Brunch Cruise was the best birthday celebration and we had a great time. We're planning another trip real soon, and I will be calling Cloud 9 Living. I would recommend this company to all, thanks again!”
    “The Champagne Brunch Cruise was fun. The service of our waitress was impeccable, and the food on the buffet was delicious. Registering for the event was easy and quick. I would recommend your organization to others. Thank you!”
    “I really enjoyed this, I would love to do this again. I told my friends how wonderful the service and the experience was, so we might do a group one pretty soon. Thank you for the great time we had.”
    “Gloria was our server. She was kind, friendly, and one of the best servers I have ever had. And I also experienced a ghost story on the boat... The strangest thing, I got locked into John Wayne's old bedroom restroom, after a few minutes, the lock just gave and I was able to get out. Thank you.”
    “We had a lovely experience and no complaints at all.”
    “Our kids bought this as a Christmas gift for us, and it was so much beyond what I ever expected. From the minute we boarded, we were treated like, well, ROYALTY. They gave us a chilled glass of champagne, showed us to our private dining room table, and then told us we had the run of the ship. We jammed up to the sundeck to enjoy the gorgeous weather and forever views, and only came back to our table for the amazing buffet. This easily rivals any brunch you would get at a restaurant -- shrimp and salmon, tri-tip and turkey, fruits, desserts, and EVERYTHING in between. The champagne NEVER stopped flowing, and the staff was truly unrivaled. I would love to do this cruise AGAIN!”
    “Very pleasant and smooth ride, everyone was helpful, and food was great.”
    “I absolutely loved every minute of it!!”
    “The food was awesome and we had a great time. Would recommend this cruise to friends and family.”
    “The cruise was great! We got the best table in the boat, and the food and champagne was so much better than expected. We will definitely do this again!”
    “Pretty good.”
    “The ship was big and beautiful. It left on time and was smooth sailing the whole trip. The champagne was free- flowing, and the prime rib and cheese cake were to die for. It stayed out on the water the whole 2 hours, and I'm telling all my friends how great a time it was. Thank you.”
    “It was one of the much nicer brunches that I had in a while. I did ask for window sitting but didn't get it -- I hope I do next time.”
    “Great champagne brunch cruise. Crew were very friendly & professional. Cruise ship was beautiful & immaculately clean. Food was wonderful.”
    “While the buffet itself was nothing special it was very good, (not steam table blah food). The overall experience with the narration and the service provided by the staff was great. We would do it again when in San Diego area.”
    “I have never been on a Champagne Brunch Cruise and my girlfriend booked it as a surprise birthday gift. It was the best experience and surprise ever!!! The food was all freshly prepared, nothing was sitting out getting cold. The champagne, water, and orange juice just kept coming. The breeze and the weather were suburb, and the view was even better. Talk about a day I will never forget! My girlfriend's exact words were, "If she's happy I'm happy." I appreciate her and everybody who made this day possible.”
    “Had a wonderful time. Food was excellent. Staff very attentive. ”
    “Although we enjoyed the cruise through the San Diego Bay, the food was not great and our waitress did not stop by our table to refill our drinks unless we asked her to. While on the cruise, we learned that there are different cruise packages that guests purchased which gave them certain privileges over other guests. This made us feel as if we were given a lower priority than some of the other guests who purchased directly through the Hornblower company. ”
    “Spectacular! It was wonderful. I don't want to go back to reality. The cruise was amazing filled with tons of relaxation. Thanks for the experience!”
    “Great time with all! Enjoyed by all! Neat experience!”
    “From start to finish our Harbor Cruise was amazing. The food was fresh and hot and there was such a great variety. The champagne, OJ & coffee were great and the Bloody Mary's we ordered were terrific! We will be doing this again soon!”
    “It was very easy to book. The brunch was delicious and servers very attentive. Would do it again. ”
    “Great food! Best shrimp I've ever had. My partner thought so, too. Cruise was just the right length of time. Interesting sights and commentary. Great food!”
    “Beautiful little trip”
    “Cruise was wonderful we had a great time.”
    “We had a very pleasant experience. In regards to the Guide/Instructor/Pilot portion of questions, they really didn't apply as there was no interaction after an initial greeting to watch our step with anyone other than our waiter. The waiter was just "ok", not great at refilling any of our drinks which consisted of the champagne, coffee and water.”
