The Hornblower Brunch Cruise on July 24 apparently kept 29 Travel Club members cool and well fed. According to spokesperson Marlene Cathro, a champagne glass filled with bubbly was immediately handed each participant as they entered the ship and kept filled during the entire cruise.
“The ship’s dining area was large, open and beautifully appointed,” says Marlene. “A buffet was positioned at the front of the ship and several tables displayed a beautiful array of foods, including shrimp and sushi. The buffet bar did not disappoint and everyone was tempted to take several of the decadent desserts.”
On the outdoor deck, guests enjoyed warm breezes and perfect weather, along with a narrated explanation of the sights around the ship as it sailed beneath the Coronado Bridge. Marlene says, “This trip was so well received, those on the bus coming home asked that this trip be included on next year’s agenda.”
