I recently went on your champagne, brunch boat on Sunday and unfortunately was dissatisfied. I’ve written on Hornblower two previous times and I had nothing but a great experience each time. This one left far to be desired. Not only did waitstaff keep bringing us out incorrect food, but once we receive the food, it was cold as everyone else around us was served but us, and we seem to be the last people being served. Also, my husband and I tried to obtain brunch enhancements and were told out of the five only two are available. This is never happened before.

Hello Nitza, I am overjoyed to hear that you and your significant other had such an amazing time on your cruise! I am truly so happy that you enjoyed the DJ, food, and staff on this experience.

The brunch cruise was awesome experience. Excellent views, great food and very smooth boat ride. We extremely enjoyed ourselves and would recommend to others.
We were very disappointed when we were not on the original ship that we paid for, I understand there were mechanical difficulties but the experience was different. The menu was not wonderful and the shop was very crowded.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello Josine, Thank you for taking the time to leave this review! I am terribly sorry that you were not able to go on the original ship you paid for due to mechanical issues. Although disappointing, I’m sure your crew switched you to the other cruise to ensure you were able to still get out on the water and enjoy a lovely meal. I have already connected with our partner’s, and they have agreed upon returning the funds to you for the price difference of the ships. We have also added a credit to your account due to the unexpected mechanical problems that led you to not have the very best experience. I truly hope that this will allow you to find another exciting event and we can get you booked soon. Regards, Briana
Very poor experience. The service was incredibly slow and poorly managed. The food was cold and pretty tasteless. The only good thing I have to say is that the drinks were plentiful, although service of those was also painfully slow. Would advise not doing this experience
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
