Hornblower offers this sentiment on their website, which we thought was a great statement: “For all manner of wedding plans – engagement parties, bridal showers and bachelorette parties to the rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and reception – Hornblower Cruises & Events means, not just peace of mind, but blissful anticipation that this will be the memorable occasion you have always wanted. Congratulations –“

While that may seem like a tall order to fill we found several customer reviews from previous couples who chose Hornblower as their perfect San Diego wedding location and seem to think came through! 

Kristie – we could not have been more pleased! Everything was wonderful – the venue, boat, crew, flowers and the food was fabulous. We’ve had many rave about it and several couples who are considering the same! Thank you so much for all you did!! It was perfect!


Hey Kristie – I should have contacted you days ago – still in a fog.  AWESOME wedding celebration.  The night was beautiful, the food was delicious, the service was impeccable.  I have had so many comments that it was the best party they had ever been to.  The band was fantastic.  We could have danced all night.  It went by in a flash. There were even fireworks at one point. I will recommend you to anyone who is looking to do something special.  It was flawless.  The Captain did a fantastic job with the ceremony also and again, the staff was so helpful.  Thank you!!!!!


Dear Kristie – WOW, what an amazing day. Everything was so perfect. The music was perfect, the flowers were perfect, the food was great, and the service was unimaginable. They were all so great. They were all so polite and willing to make everything just right. That was by far the best day of our whole life and I owe most of it to you and your staff. That was just amazing. With many thanks and appreciation for one of the most memorable days of our life.
