Great family adventure!

This was such a good time. A perfect night for a gondola ride under the full moon. It was a bit chilly but they had blankets available for us to use. Our gondolier was so fun. He kept us entertained as well as gave us some fun facts about the island. The experience is great for date night, proposals, friend dates and family adventure. Its a must do when in the Long Beach area.

Awesome Dinner Experience!

We had a great time on our gondola dinner cruise, led by Jake and Josh. We were able to see amazing sights and architecture, and loved how informative and fun our guides were! The food was great too- the chicken Alfredo pizza was a hit!

5 Stars! Perfect for any age, especially us older folks!

5 STARS! Took a Gondola ride for our 42nd wedding anniversary. It was a wonderful experience. Our Gondolier, Waylon was so kind and knowledgeable. He took us around the canal's and explained a bit of history here and there and pointed out interesting things like the house with the fake shark head sticking out. He played a little romantic music and make the date really special for me and my husband. Thank you, Gondola Getaway and Waylon. And it was free parking! Ice cream shop a short drive away. Yum!

Perfect Afternoon!

Fantastic Gondola Experience, great Host (Josh)?, great staff, easy access and also free parking. Overall great experience. The trip was perfect, the add-on's well worth it such as message in a bottle and snack trays. The route is great and just the right amount of time. Looking forward to the night cruise. We took a noon cruise. Very clean and professional, comfortable and friendly. Perfect.

Our Gondeliir Jared was a joy!

We had a great evening celebrating my mom’s special birthday. There was room enough for six adults. Jared was knowledgeable about the different houses and the history of Naples. Lots of great conversation and he also seeing us a beautiful song under one of the bridges. It was a cool way to spend a hot night in Long Beach!

GREAT FREE BIRTHDAY CRUISE! - Catalina Express

  • United States    
  • California (CA)    
  • Long Beach    
  • Long Beach - Things to Do    
  • Catalina Express

GREAT FREE BIRTHDAY CRUISE!

Don't let this promotion slip by -- good thru April 2013. I had a very enjoyable visit to Avalon. Took the Casino Tour, drinks at Avalon Grille, dinner at Steve's Steakhouse, and a nice walk around town.

Very comfortable way to get to Catalina Island for the total Island experience. All the employees were helpful with luggage handling and assistance in walking up the gangplanks. A relaxing trip across the miles.

This trip to Catalina was amazing and the crew of Catalina Express were very friendly and helpful with my scuba gear. The boat was clean and organized. This was my first trip to Catalina and everyone with the Catalina Express ensures it won't be the last.

If you feel you haven't been on vacation until you are on the water...do this trip. About a 1 hr. cruise each way to tiny Catalina Island...which is friendly and cute. A great afternoon/evening thing to do!

Catalina Express was a very convient way to/from the island. Smooth trip, clean boats. Upgrading to Commadore Lounge was well worth the extra when the boat was full. Allowed pre boarding and quieter seating.

The Catalina Express was a great way to get from Long Beach to Avalon. If you get sea sick make sure the take lots of medicine and bring ginger candy! There's a little snack bar on the boat where you can purchase snacks or drinks, which was nice. You cannot see anything but sky out of most of the windows. If you get sea sick, I recommend upgrading to the Commodore lounge and sitting outside up top. Get there a little earlier to get a good seat. The staff was not great and were talking loudly about inappropriate things on our ride back. I was so glad when we got to the dock!

It was great to meet

It was great to meet you in person. Our team did not run into anything that we would suggest, but only heard praise of your team. The staff on board was fantastic and really made sure that everyone was attended to. Thank you again. You have been a blessing to work with. You respond quickly and you made sure that all of our requests were handled. Thank you and look forward to working with you again if we are given a chance.

Everyone had a blast!

It was a pleasure meeting last week and thank you for everything, everyone had a blast! 🙂

Looking forward to the next one.

We really enjoyed our night. You were great. And your staff.

Cheers to 30 years

I just wanted to THANK each and every person who helped make our cruise such a success! The amazing 5 level Yacht was just breath taking when we walked up. Then when we got to the upper deck and there was champagne waiting for us to do our “Cheers to 30 years” it was just beautiful. The sunset and all the people getting to socialize in such an amazing place, it was just priceless! Bartenders were great, quick and friendly! The food was delicious and there was plenty to choose from! We here at WAI would like to thank you for all you did for us, it was a night to remember!

The day was incredibly successful.

The day was incredibly successful. I appreciate all your attentiveness to detail, open communication during this process; it was truly invaluable. Our guest loved the experience and felt service was exceptional. The staff was most helpful and welcoming. Food Serving Staff via Gladstone’s was amazing! Thank you once again for allowing our company event to be a memory that will never be forgotten!

It was a great success.

It was a great success. All the staff was wonderful. Food was great. No complaints

I want to again say

I want to again say thank you. We had a great experience with Captain Dan and the team on La Espada…

It was a pleasure working with you after getting the recommendation from the LPBCAP and the convention bureau. You made it easy to make this event happen.

I must compliment both Kim the Lead Server for managing the buffet and keeping our event moving along successfully. Our first impression of Harbor Breeze Charters & Cruises was from your smiling Deckhand Dale who greeted passengers on the damp moving dock and made everyone feel safe and welcome.

Our annual three day conference is always information filled and a powerful experience for the attendees, but those things pass. This conference will be remembered by the special delight provided for those seeing Long Beach at night from the La Espada. That is the permanent memory from our conference and speaks to the great service, wonderful staff and perfect venue for a nighttime floating party. Thanks for everything.

Thank you so much once again for a memorable evening!

Nikki thank you so much once again for a memorable evening!

You guys never fail to make sure things go smoothly we had such a great time time, my cousin was extremely happy and I can’t wait to book with you again, thank you especially for your patience and making sure we had everything we needed for our yacht party! Till’ next time! Love you!

We had a ball Sunday.

We had a ball Sunday. It was a very good experience. The one gentlemen with a lot of personality, I can’t remember his name but he had a great attitude, bubbly personality, very friendly. The bartender was great. Very nice and friendly, quiet, sweet young lady. Everyone loved the vessel. It was beautiful and large enough for our crowd. I loved the stadium seating at the front of the ship. This area was perfect for our games that we played, Family Feud and Deal or No Deal. I thought we were going to hook our mics into your PA system. But it worked out great anyway because we had karaoke going on in the main dining room and we had games going on the upper deck. It was so secluded each section that you could not disturb what was going on in one group versus the other. I thought that worked out perfectly. We definitely will use Harbor Cruises for our next party event. Thank you and your staff. Job well done.

I just wanted to reach

I just wanted to reach out to you and THANK YOU for the awesome service and experience! Even though our Town Hall Meeting ended a bit too late and totally wrecked our schedule, most of us managed to make it there on time. Some Associates from out of town had nothing but positive things to say about Long Beach and the awesome time they were having on the Harbor Cruise. Catering was great! Your switch to a new catering company really made a difference. The crew was very nice and willing to help with any needs or concerns. Jared as always very attentive and helpful and always with a smile on his face. I can’t say enough great things. Thank you again and hopefully this event can continue to grow each year.

The pleasure was all ours.

The pleasure was all ours. Everyone had a great time and the event was a success. They are already looking forward to the next one. There were just a few comments (not complaints) see below. The bartenders, crew, captain all did a great job. We might be looking for bigger boat next year.

The night couldn’t have been more perfect

I just wanna thank you so much for providing an amazing unforgettable experience for me to celebrate my birthday. Also the crew on the boat were so helpful at all times and made sure everything ran smoothly, also want to thank the Captain for getting us out on the water and back to the dock safely.

I think you personally hand picked the crew and the Captain yourself because they were great like you when it came to their amazing service. Also just another thank you to again for being so reliable and you were as lenient as you can be with me thank you for last minute changes. The night couldn’t have been more perfect.

It was great!

Excellent customer Service

The team on the boat were amazing. They didn’t really bother us, which I liked, but also was there if we needed anything. Eileen the bartender was wonderful!!!

Yes, I got engaged. I was so surprised. I didn’t see it coming. But this made my night! I will forever remember this night forever.

I had the best experience ever. I felt the time frame was a good because it wasn’t too short or too long. Excellent customer Service. I don’t have anything bad to say about anyone. Everyone was great!

Thank you for everything and I would definitely refer to you my family and friends.

This was the best birthday/engagement ever. And I was so glad I was able to experience it on the yacht. Thank you again for upgrading us to the bigger boat.

Thank you so much, Nikki 😘

Our Experience on Harbor Breeze

Our Experience on Harbor Breeze Yacht Charters and Crusies was a memorable one. Everyone had a great time and the food was delicious. Working with Nikki to arrange everything (even with all my chances and strange requests), she made the experience easy and stress free. Our Bartender was fun and very accommodating. We will definitely be doing more events with Nikki and Harbor Breeze!!!!!

Everything was great. The team was exceptional anything we needed they were there to assist. I will definitely be booking with you for any future events. Hope you are doing good. Once again thank you for all your help and support with our summer event. You rock!!!

You were great

I’d like to thank you for all you did for us Nikki. You were great on our initial contact and on getting us a quote in a timely fashion and then right into the arranging of the event with my wife. But then you stayed in constant communication with us up until the boat left the dock. You don’t know how important that is for us customers who are so stressed about everything coming out right. Thank you. You had a lot of great ideas and whatever issues or problems we were having you addressed and corrected immediately. Just a pleasure to work with and Dan should be proud of how you represent him and his company. Once we drove up you were there to help us and introduce us to Jason who took over from there. Jason was not only super efficient but was pleasant and funny and a great guy to have around throughout the evening. He was a total professional and worked tirelessly to keep my wife and daughter from stressing and kept the event flowing all night. The Captain was another person who went above and beyond the call of duty and I can’t thank him enough. Thanks to you Dan and Harbor Breeze Cruises and all the employees that worked to make my daughters Sweet 16 a night to remember for her and all aboard the Caroline.

It was a pleasure working

It was a pleasure working with you on our event. Everyone had a great time! Thanks so much!

I don’t even know where to begin. You were so good to us the day of our event and all the days leading up to it.

Also, big thanks to Michelle and Kim. They were incredibly kind and made sure everything went smoothly that night.

We most definitely will keep Harbor Breeze Cruises in mind for future events!

Thanks, Nikki 🙂

Quality Service

My husband and I had our wedding reception on the Triumphant on Saturday, July 7, 2018 (Rich Cormier/ Raquel Jordan). Jared was the person that assisted us. We had several requests and he accommodated all of our requests from beginning to end. Every time we called Jared was always willing and able to answer our many questions. If there were any questions that he was unable to answer, he always followed up with us in a timely manner. His willingness to go above and beyond is commendable. We are grateful for the time and attention he gave us. Our wedding reception was absolutely beautiful, and we appreciate Jared and all that he did to ensure that our wedding reception cruise went smoothly. Thank you again Jared for providing quality service. We will definitely utilize Long Beach Cruises again and recommend LB Cruises to others and we will recommend Jared. We would also like to recognize the staff on the boat. From the captain to the bartenders (selected by Jared), the boat staff were polite and courteous to us and all of our family and friends. Again, we greatly appreciate Jared and the boat staff for all of their hard work and dedication to ensure that our reception went off without a hitch.

Your wonderful & harbor cruises

Your wonderful & harbor cruises crew! All the staff is so helpful & courteous. Ready to assit as best possible & go that extra length. You don’t see this kind of service any more. It’s good to know traditional manners are still recognized. I look forward to working with you & crew in the near future! See you X-mas..lol

The party on Saturday was

The party on Saturday was beyond anything I could have hoped for. I had been so worried about how things were going to work out but I have to say this party was perfect in every way! The food was fabulous and although I had originally wanted a sit down meal, I think doing the Mexican finger food was actually much better. It gave a chance for people to get food when they wanted and to move about and mingle at their own pace. The entire staff was so wonderful. They were always there to help if needed and they were so friendly. I also wanted to thank you for helping to make this all happen. I knew that I couldn’t let Dan’s retirement pass without some kind of celebration and Harbor Breeze Cruises was the perfect option for this celebration. Thank you again so much. You were such a pleasure to work with. By the way, Dan was indeed very surprised and had such a great time. Thank you for a party we will never forget

All my guests had a great time. They had been asking me to have a second yacht party since da first one. I get a few inquiries each time on wanting to have similar parties but often find it to be too expensive. The service was great. The boat was clean. The staff was friendly.

I wanted to say thank you very much for your help throughout the entire planning process for our PEC LA Holiday Party this past Sunday. Everyone had a blast and I appreciate you working closely with me to iron out details so that we could have a successful event.

Please do let your crew know that we all had a lovely time and that we appreciate their service throughout the evening. The mashed potatoes were especially delicious.

The party turned out to be such a success. Captain Edward, Joann and other crew member were impeccable They went out of their way to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves.

We appreciate you so much.

The event was perfect, food was great, the staff was amazing, and the firework show was impressive. My family had a wonderful time. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We appreciate you so much.

Still trying to recoup from

Still trying to recoup from the busy weekend! The party went better than expected. The cruise was really great! I wanted to reach out to you regarding Consuela. She did a “phenomenal” job over and above the course of duty! Every time we went to do something, there she was to assist us. If it’s around raise time, I would recommend giving her a nice bump! Thanks again for all your help in working with me on getting the cruise booked. If not for your efforts, not sure if I would have booked the cruise! As such, if you’re around raise time, I show this to the boss and tell him it’s time to pay up, you’re making them money! Thanks for everything,

Just took a couple of

Just took a couple of minutes to post this on YELP – You may quote all of it! “Can Do!” approach to a very tailored event was phenomenal. The professionalism began long before the guests arrived, with the staff and crew at our disposal before the event. Nikki responds seconds after any requests. The Captain and crew are top notched – from the complimentary champagne, safety briefing, pointing out dolphins, serving the savory dishes, pouring wine for the guests and of course – serving the birthday cake! Two excellent Captains on board – what more can you ask for! SUGGESTION: Hire as many additional staff you think you might need – the professional service is a BARGAIN towards you (Host/Hostess) actually enjoying your own event! I celebrated my 50th Birthday on the Caroline and just hosted my best friend’s 70th!

Great experience with Captain Dan

Hi Nikki, I want to again say thank you. We had a great experience with Captain Dan and the team on La Espada. It was a pleasure working with you after getting the recommendation from the LPBCAP and the convention bureau. You made it easy to make this event happen. I must compliment both Kim the Lead Server for managing the buffet and keeping our event moving along successfully. Our first impression of Harbor Breeze Charters & Cruises was from your smiling Deckhand Dale who greeted passengers on the damp moving dock and made everyone feel safe and welcome.

Thank you for everything!!! Everything

AWESOME job

You did an AWESOME job, and your communication on all of the updates & conditions were highly appreciated. You guys are a first class operation, and it was great that so many of our CVB Board Members (who are also Hotel GMS) were there to experience the cruise. And, our Hospitality Partners had a great time as well!

I just wanted to say

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for last night. The team did such a great job, we had a blast!!

Smooth sailing

Hi, Nikki! After all of those weeks of coordination and preparation with you, everything was “smooth sailing” on our end! The caterer was fantastic and so accommodating – everyone loved the food! The crew was seamless and efficient in service, and plates and cups were spirited away by invisible hands always keeping the area neat and tidy. The captain delivered a remarkably smooth ride as we cruised past all of the landmark sites in the Long Beach harbor. I would highly recommend to you anyone, and I look forward to planning another cruise adventure together!

Michelle Van Noord / Maintech Resources Bellflower, CA

We had a wonderful time. Your staff was fantastic, all of them! We added the 4 whale watching cards to our raffle and the winners were thrilled. Thank you for that addition! The appetizers were wonderful as well as the wedge salad. The chicken and the potatoes were great. Just something for us to remember in the future. Thank you very much for all of your help! All in all, it was a wonderful experience.

We will definitely not forget this amazing experience

Thank you so much for all you did for us! Everyone at the event had a blast on the yacht.

The food was amazing and the service was even better. The captain was very helpful and accommodating.

The Gladstone service was very professional and they made the experience on the yacht that much better. You were an amazing help with all this and overall you gave us the best help we have ever received from any outside vendors.

Again thank you so much for everything. We will definitely not forget this amazing experience you were able to provide our location!

Thank you again from myself and Alex!

As always – you guys

Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the food

Hi Nikki, I hope you had a nice weekend! Thank you so much for having us! Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the food, the DJ, and the scenic ride. We wanted to confirm whether gratuity was already added in payment. If not, we’d love to send a little something along as a thank you for the excellent service. Let us know!

a huge THANK YOU to Joanne

I want to give a big thanks to Nikki, the Harbor Breeze crew, Captain Stan and especially Joanne. All of you made our wedding day not only special but super fun and stress free. I was able to show up and enjoy every moment of my wedding along with my wedding party and guests without having to worry about any set up, clean up or service. All of my friends and family have said they had such a great time, and that it was one of the funner weddings they have been to. I also have to say that all of the food was delicious and the drinks were awesome. Lastly, a huge THANK YOU to Joanne who went above and beyond by helping me find a hair and makeup artist when I could not, and was there all night making sure we had one of the best nights of our lives. I will never forget our evening aboard the Triumphant with Harbor Breeze.

Thank you – thank you

Thank you – thank you – thank you. What an awesome party, catering, crew. Thanks a million. We want to do it again in August, with more people. I will definitely go and give you guys a review.

Worth Every Penny

Coming from the Midwest, I have only seen such species in aquariums. I was able to see them in their natural habitat and so close that I could hear their blowholes and sounds they were making to each other. The captain was really attentive towards finding activity, and the tour guide did an excellent job when explaining the mammals as we were seeing their interaction and behavior. Moreover, the vessel had plenty of room to move around and facilities for those that don’t have sea legs. Awesome experience!

Thanks again for everything

Thank YOU so much for working your magic to make this happen for us. We had a fabulous time. Everything was great! And it was fun to see Joanne. She’s great at what she does. If you ever need more bartenders, I’m sure my mom would be a great resource for you if you ever need extra people. I hope to be able to keep sending business your way. Thanks again for everything!!!

Thank YOU so much for

Thank YOU so much for everything! The upgraded boat was AMAZING it and worked out perfectly for the baraat! I wanted to share their Same Day Edit with you so you can see how it all looked when they came in for the baraat 🙂

Thank you and your team

Thank you and your team for being so flexible during the event. I heard nothing but great things about the adventure and event. The Captain and the Bartender were great and the Catering staff were wonderful as well.

EXCELLENT SERVICE

I have only positive feedback for this staff on the Sir Winston. EVERYONE was pleased with the level of service your team gave us. The staff was friendly, courteous, caring, warm, professional. They gave us EXCELLENT SERVICE. Everyone ALL your staff, was so nice. Let them know I said thank you so much. Did they have a good time with us. I hope we were not too much trouble.

Thank you so much Nikki and your staff, on behalf of the Brothers of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc, Rho Iota Iota Chapter-Long Beach. We really appreciated your promptness and professionalism with helping us put on a great event.

Our guests were very impressed with the boat, food, and the hospitality that your staff presented. We have received countless positive reviews and remarks on social media regarding the boat ride.

Thank you again and we look forward to working with you in the near future.

We had out port tour

We had out port tour today, and I just wanted to thank you for a making our tour a success. Your boat and crew were perfect, and the students enjoyed the experience.

Oh yes our evening was fantastic!!!

Oh yes our evening was fantastic!!! Everyone did a super job. We loved the DJ–everyone was up and dancing. Steven made the party!!! I told him if I was given the opportunity to give feedback I would let you know he should go out on every cruise–he is amazing. The music selections were perfect. He interacted with the crowd and followed our run of evening–making changes as I needed. Hats off–so great. The servers were terrific–we loved our bartender–she was personable and so helpful and we really appreciated her. Overall this was a 10+ evening on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best party of our life. Our guests were so complementary and asked if we would be throwing another party soon!! I also passed your name on to a couple of guests for future parties that they are considering/ Not sure if this will be shared with your corporate office but please pass on to them for us that you were the best!! Every bit of the way you were responsive, helpful, kind and accommodating. I have done events before and I was so very happy with this one–you made our evening the best I could have imagined. Thank you for everything and I hope our paths will cross again sometime–I loved working with you. Linda

Amazing and very responsive

You were amazing and very responsive during the entire process. Your team did a amazing job, the deck hand was wonderful and very helpful. Kim from the catering was exceptional. Overall we have a wonderful time, everything was ready for us. I was completely satisfied with everything.

Thank you for taking care of us

Thank you for taking care of us. Everyone had a great time!

Your crew did an amazing job. I think they were all very helpful and accommodating. Briana really took care of me (us)! 😊

I really appreciate the little things like labels on the food, and letting those with special diets know when they were doing the tray passing. Also for helping me carry drinks because I didn’t have four hands…lol.

Hope to work with you again soon. Take care! Jill 😊

Thank you for the great

Thank you for the great service to Acuren 2017 Christmas event. We had a great time.

Thank you so much and

Thank you so much and what you did for us was absolutely amazing and so greatly appreciated. Your staff were so awesome And really impressed my planners. All they were talking about was what a great add on to their reunions it would be to tie in a Cruise on their agenda. The captain was absolutely amazing and so well educated on the history of Long Beach. I especially loved the Wealth of knowledge the captain had in regards to Villa Riviera on Ocean Blvd in Long Beach and it’s roll with the U.S. Navy in WWII Which was amazing for the Vets. Way to pair such an iconic icon on a cruise with Navy Vets…KUDOS!! I would refer Harbor Breeze Cruises to all group’s you guys truly ROCK!

Service was impeccable

Nikki, wow everything was great. Service was impeccable. Food was great but way toooo much food. We can come back for breakfast. Great night. Thanks to the good folks at HB!

We enjoyed everything! It was

Harbor Breeze staff did an outstanding job!

The Harbor Breeze staff did an outstanding job! They were friendly, patient, and knowledgeable.

If I had one regret, it was that we had too few bridal shower participants. (I should have invited the boys!)

Thank you for being a marvelous facilitator, and your cake recommendation was spot on!

I would highly recommend your company to others.

Sincerely, Barbara Edmundson

We did enjoy the cruise

We did enjoy the cruise and the crew was great! I did not catch the name of the gentleman that assisted us throughout the night but he was very helpful and had great service. We did enjoy it and am looking to having a larger vessel next time.

We enjoyed every second of

We enjoyed every second of our dinner cruise! Nikki was extremely helpful throughout the entire booking process, and made sure the event went very smoothly. Food was absolutely delicious, and nicely presented. The boat staff was very welcoming and attended to all of our needs. Overall, we had an amazing night, and I would certainly recommend this to everyone! 🙂

We would like to thank

We would like to thank YOU and the entire team at Harbor Breeze Cruises for a great evening and for excellent service from the earliest planning stages right through to the cruise itself. You were extraordinarily responsive to every call and question we had in the weeks leading up to the event. We particularly appreciated your and your chef’s flexibility in accommodating our last minute head count (and of course for providing the delicious sliders at no charge!). The food was great, the venue was great, Freddy the bartender was great – over all it was fabulous evening and we would certainly recommend HBC to other folks. Please also extend our thanks to the Chef and the food service team.

I’m so sorry it’s taken

I’m so sorry it’s taken me a while to write to you. We really enjoyed the experience on the Caroline: you are absolutely wonderful to work with, you were very flexible, and really made a dream night come through for my wife. The captain, staff, crew and caterer were all lovely, and we really enjoyed the food. What a great experience! I’ve been recommending it to all of my friends and can’t wait until the next time we can join you on one of your yachts.

Omg Nikki!!! It was great!!!

Omg Nikki!!! It was great!!! The crew was wonderful!!! We had a blast!!!! Thank YOU for making my birthday so great!! Here’s a few pics of me. I know u got to see all of my guests. They looked so good

We simply loved it.

Dear Nikki We simply loved it. The staff were very professional. Love to have more on board experiences with you

Guests were Ecstatic

Hi Nikki! Thank you so much for everything this past weekend! We have heard nothing but the best, and the guests were ecstatic upon their return to the hotel. I really appreciate the follow up, and all of the hard work that you put into this project, and obviously we really value you as a vendor. I look forward to working with you again sometime in the near future! Best Regards, Kristin Chitman

I had an awesome time,

I had an awesome time, as did the Chief, Lieutenant, Committee and most of the attendees. I enjoyed the food, as did my table, the Chief’s table, etc. The crew were fantastic! Captain was extremely personable, he kept me or the Chief informed of any plans and at the end wanted a picture with the 2 of us. I enjoyed working with you and thought that everything went well. Chief Velez said at the party that I will have a hard time topping this next year. Also, we had a Corporal and his date get stuck on the freeway, their GPS said they wouldn’t arrive until after 7:30, the Captain offered to pick them up at Alamitos, allowing us to set sail and them still to catch the boat, the caterers set aside food for them. I thought it was wonderful that they didn’t miss the boat! Again, thank you for everything!

You guys were all fantastic!

You guys were all fantastic! Vanessa (bartender) was amazing. She even helped me set our centerpieces after I got stuck in traffic and ran a little behind. I didn’t get the gentlemen’s name, but one of the caterers (late 40s, Hispanic male) was attentive and ensured our special guest got her vegetarian plate.

Excellent service!

Thank you for making “The Harbor Dinner Cruise” such a wonderful and successful event for our conference attendees. Everything was top notch from YOU and your staff.

Our members thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful setting, champagne toast, delicious food and excellent service! I continue to receive feedback from our members about how amazing everything was.

Thanks to you!!

I really appreciate all that you did when working with me throughout the months; You’re wonderful and a pleasure to work with and look forward to returning soon.

I have been meaning to

I have been meaning to send you a message to thank you for all of your help! It was an incredible experience for my family and I. We will definitely be doing business with you again. The two security guards were awesome! My family felt safe and in good hands with them. I appreciate everything you did for me. It was a birthday I will never forget! Thank you!

I really appreciate everything you did for us

Hello Nikki, I really appreciate everything you did for us, and for your text as well, and I really appreciate everyone help. We did have amazing time, and everything went so great. Also, She love it, and it was amazing and everyone had so much fun.

Also, I took her to a harbor cruise last Sunday, and the Cruise was awesome, but we didn’t see whales, and we saw only couple dolphins. I wish I had see more because was first time for her. When I went last time to see the yacht was amazing and I saw 100 of dolphins.

Thanks again Nikki I am so happy for everything, and for sure I will come back again.

Thanks, David

Thank you for helping me

Thank you for helping me organize husbands 40th birthday! We had a great time! Everyone was delightful to work with and we had no issues at all. My sincere thank you to all of you!

It was great! The food was delicious

It was great! The food was delicious and the catering staff was beyond excellent. All the crew member were helpful & polite. Also, your bar tender was great and very accommodating to everyone’s needs. WE had such a great time and everyone can’t stop talking about it.

Your help and continued support through the contract process was seamless. I look forward to working with you in the future.

What a pleasant surprise this

What a pleasant surprise this dinner cruise was for me. I was so excited to learn that we would be dinning while cruising the beautiful Long Beach Harbor. Thanks for making this such an enjoyable evening. Absolutely! As our guests arrived their look was priceless. So pleased with everything!! Thank you

Please extend my since appreciation

Please extend my since appreciation to Nikki at Harbor Dinner Cruise for the fantastic job she did for our conference attendees!!!

I appreciate the flexibility she provided in terms of finding ‘new’ ships as our attendance numbers grew. And it was very nice for everyone at the dinner cruise to be given the complimentary glass of champagne which led to a rousing “Cheers to 30 Years” toast I understand by those who were on the cruise that evening.

And I also want to thank her for the wonderful tasting event at Gladstone’s earlier in the week. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding.

My only regret was that we never had an opportunity to meet in person. I had even pulled out my two yearbooks from Dodson Jr. High – 1990 and 1991 – so we could look at pictures of some of the teachers. Will just have to try again the next time I am in the Long Beach area – hopefully not too long……..

The event turned out great

The event turned out great, thanks for all your help. We hope that the bar area did ok, the guest list was not as big as we originally thought cause we were worried about it being to crowded but it was not bad at all. We could have fit another 20 or more and been fine. Everyone that worked on the boat was amazing, no complaints there. Anyways, always a pleasure working with you. If there is room for whale watching this weekend, I would love to take my family. Let me know.

Everything was awesome, we had

Everything was awesome, we had so much and the staff is terrific! You guys ROCK!

I wanted to let you

I wanted to let you know that we sent out a feedback survey and got 100% of people rating the dinner cruise as “good” or “excellent!” Here are the comments people left: • The food was good, and it was really relaxing sitting on the cruise. • Lovely, good food too. • I loved the idea of having time dedicated to relaxation and socializing. I think it’s important to do this after a day filled with activities, and a dinner cruise was perfeet! • Cruise was great. • Did not get seasick. Great views while we enjoy the dinner and cocktails. Food was limited but ok. Can’t remember if there were any music. They should have some relaxing background music. • I thought the cruise was a smart way to force mingling among each other since we were all confined to the boat. Thank you, so much, for everything!

How much does it cost to charter a yacht?

The cost to charter a yacht varies depending on the boat size and the length of the charter. Prices typically range from less than $1,000 to $5,000 plus if you're wanting to charter the yacht overnight.

How does the boat insurance work?

Boat insurance typically covers loss caused by things such as fire, sinking, storms, and collisions. The extent of the coverage varies depending on the policy.

Do I need my own insurance to rent a boat?

You do not need boat insurance when renting with Boatsetter. Coverage is provided under the Peer-to-Peer Boat Rental Policy, which is underwritten by GEICO Marine Insurance Company. The policy was written from the ground up as a stand-alone recreational boat rental insurance policy covering the period of time that the boat is being rented and is available for all non-commercially insured boats.

Does Boatsetter screen renters?

Yes. We use a system called Cognito to ensure that payment information matches the renter's identity. We also require renters taking out a captained boat to be at least 18 years old and on a bareboat to be at least 25 years old.

Is listing my boat on Boatsetter free?

Yes! Listing a boat is completely free. We only take a commission when your boat is rented. We only make money when you do!

What if I'm not comfortable having a renter drive my boat?

Can you drink alcohol on a boat in California?

While it is not illegal to drink alcohol on a boat, operating a vessel while drunk can lead to a number of serious on-water accidents. The blood alcohol content limit for boating is the same as that for driving a car in California — 0.08%.

Can you go boating in Long Beach?

In mission bay, boating is a popular pastime for San Diego locals and visitors alike. Located right on the bay, we have a variety of boats with captains that can take you around the many islands and beaches that make up this beautiful city. For those who would like a change of scenery and a different experience, Coronado Island is also worth a visit.

Booze cruise options around L.A.

Tiki Mermaid

Tiki Mermaid

Docked in Marina del Rey, this Polynesian-themed boat is stocked with a full bar, and you can add an open bar to any of the cruises they offer. If you're looking for a specific alcohol-focused cruise, the Tiki Mermaid offers a "Drink & Dance" cruise which includes a three hour yacht rental, an unlimited full bar (with well brand alcohol), as well as snacks of pretzels and nuts.  Tiki Mermaid is located at 13755 Fiji Way, Marina del Rey (310-410-8454). "Drink & Dance" cruise is $57 per person (40 minimum) or $69 per person (25 minimum). 

Hornblower Cruises

Hornblower Cruises

Hornblower has multiple locations along Southern California's coastline, and while its Marina del Rey and Newport Beach ports offer brunch and dinner cruises, we wouldn't consider those booze cruises. However, during summer months, the Long Beach port hosts a 90-minute cocktail cruise at 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays with live music and alcohol.  Hornblower's Long Beach port is located at 100 Aquarium Way, Dock 6  ( 310-301-6000) . The cocktail cruise is $40. 

Why Knot? Party Cruises

Why Knot? Party Cruises

This historic 1942 Navy ferry vessel is now a party vessel with a full-service bar and dance floor. The boat will go through the Port of Long Beach, under the Desmond Bridge and land back at Berth 55. These cruises are not on a regular schedule, but can be booked independently with charters available between 9am and midnight. The boat can fit up to 110 people and there's a three-hour minimum.  Why Knot? Party Cruises is located at 555 Pine Ave, Berth 55, in Long Beach (562-349-4209). Charter prices vary depending on the day, ranging between $350 an hour to $450 an hour. 

Cruise Newport Beach

If you're looking for a booze cruise in Orange County, this company offers two party cruises ripe for a good time. Cruise Newport Beach's Fiesta Cruise features complimentary chips and salsa as well as a full-service cantina, while the Entertainment/Nightlife Cruise features live music, dancing and, yes, a full bar. Both cruises take you through Newport Bay.  Cruise Newport Beach is located at 400 Main St, Newport Beach (949-673-1489). Cruise dates and times vary. Fiesta Cruise tickets are $25; Entertainment/Nightlife Cruise tickets vary. 

Cruise Invictus

Cruise Invictus

This 35-foot sailboat may not have a bar on board, but you're encouraged to bring your favorite drinks along with you on any of their available cruises. If you're truly looking for a booze cruise feel, we suggest Happy Hour Fridays. This cruise has a pit stop at Killer Shrimp so you can sip on cocktails and snack on appetizers before getting back on board to finish the sailing trip.  Cruise Invictus is located in Marina del Rey. Happy Hour Fridays (only available for group of six) is $125 per person. 

Carnival Cruise Line

Carnival Cruise Line

The Carnival Cruise to Ensenada, Mexico, is the ultimate booze cruise. You'll need some stamina for this three-day trip, which includes two days at sea and one day at the port in Ensenada. On board, guests can enjoy swimming pools, water slides, restaurants and, of course, lots of drinking.  Carnival Cruise Line's Ensenada bound ship departs from Long Beach on a varying schedule. Cabins range from $194–$499 per person.

Country Booze Cruise 2017

Country Booze Cruise 2017

If you have the stamina to drink and dance for three nights, then this country-themed booze cruise is for you. The ship will leave from Long Beach on Friday, January 6, 2017, for a three night party featuring live bands, DJ, line dancing, and, of course, booze. It will dock in Ensenada, Mexico, on Saturday and return to the Long Beach port Monday, January 9. The Country Booze Cruise 2017 is Jan 6-9. Cabins prices range from $231-$480. To book, call 405-246-8506.

3 Days Baja Mexico Carnival Radiance Cruise From Long Beach (Los Angeles) Review

Carnival Radiance Review

Carnival Cruise Waitlist and Phone Reservation Experience

I really thought that we were not going to be able to find a room for 4 that leaves on 7-7 as it's all so last minute and it's Fourth of July week. But then, on 7-3, Carnival called my husband and said there was a suite stateroom that just became available and that if we wanted, we could get it. The room was meant to fit only 3 people and it's a suite that costs more, but they said they'd bring in a trundle bed if we want it. My husband did not hesitate because this was the only week that he had vacation off. So, we took that suite and have no regrets!

Since we live on the Central Coast of California, driving south to Long Beach only takes us a few hours. We decided to hang out in Southern California for a few days before our cruise so that we would be already closer by. When the day finally came, we actually got lost because we googled "Long Beach Port" instead of looking for "Long Beach Carnival Port Address". Here's the correct address of the Carnival Cruise Long Beach Port: 231 Windsor Way, Long Beach, CA 90802 . We lost about 10 minutes because we were on the wrong side of the bridge. However, when we've finally found our way, we parked in the terminal parking structure right next to the Carnival Cruise Terminal for $23 a day (this may increase over time). We walked to the dome called Long Beach Cruise Terminal to wait until it was our reservation time for check-in (which you book ahead of time online). The dome reminded me a little bit of a gigantic igloo.

Day 1 on Carnival Radiance Cruise

Day 1 on the Carnival Cruise was at sea. It sailed away at 5PM so we were able to enjoy the ocean view and skyscrapers of Long Beach on our cruise ship for a few hours before we started our sail. The day was so clear and the weather was perfect. We found out from another passenger that since we booked a suite, our stateroom gets priority and should be ready as soon as we got on the ship. We went to our floor from the elevator, found our stateroom and sure enough, our stateroom keys with our names, also known as Sail and Sign cards, were already right by our door so we were able to drop off our bags and check out our room very early on!

Kids' Clubs on Carnival Radiance Cruise

Birthday Dinner at Sunset Dining Room

Then, it was time for the kids' evening kids' club activities that started at 7PM that night, so we went to the 12th floor to find Camp Ocean and checked both of our kids in. It's a closed club so only the kids are allowed to enter and leave their door. No other adults besides for the youth staff, who work there, are allowed to walk through the door, which gave me peace of mind. After dropping them off, my husband and I went to the Trivia Night event for a bit and then, headed to the Piano Bar.

Day 2 at Sea on Carnival Radiance

Mini Golf and Arcade on Carnival Radiance

Cruise Elegant Night

The Cruise Elegant Night was also on the evening of Day 2 on our cruise. We found out by looking at the top of our itinerary for the day. This night is usually really special, in which passengers dressed their best in their nice attire. It's also when they have a mega party and many cruise photographers would scatter around the ship with nice backdrops for you and your group to take a lot of pictures. Taking pictures on the cruise by professional photographers is always free on the ship. It's purchasing them that costs money. You'd always find photographers around the ship and at the Sunset Dining Room every day of this Carnival cruise. However, on elegant nights, you can take really nice family portraits. If you love getting a picture taken, you will love the many portrait opportunities on the cruise. On elegant nights, there is also usually a late night party on the main floor. We didn't stay up for the late night party on our cruise for Day 2, but did take many pictures while we were waiting for our table for dinner at Sunset Dining Room. At the end of our cruise, we bought a total of 7 prints of professional pictures taken by the cruise photographers.

Debarkation Day

There were two options to debark. We could either carry off our luggage ourselves and get off the ship sooner at 7:30AM or we could check our luggage and have the crew take our luggage the night before so that they can do the heavy lifting, but we wouldn't be able to debark until an hour later. We had made the decision to bring all of our bags and suitcases off the ship ourselves so that we could leave the ship and hop in our car to drive 4 hours home as soon as we could, because my husband had to work later that evening.

The floor to get off the ship was Deck 3. All of the elevators were clogged up because so many people were leaving at the same time so I convinced my husband to just roll our suitcases down the stairs. It's not bad since they had wheels. We did make quite a racket but the others saw what we were doing and caught on. It encouraged more passengers, who were waiting for the elevator, to use the stairs with their bags too. If you're in good health and can manage to do it, why not? It was the best decision for that scenario and we got in line to get off the ship quickly.

I had such a great time on our last minute 3 Days Carnival Cruise. Right when got in our cars to head home, my husband and I already thought of planning the next cruise. Next time, we hope to not wait so last minute and avoid being waitlisted. Although, everything did end up working so well for us. All, on a whim.

Cruises Make Great Birthday Weekend Getaways

Throw your kid a party they won't forget.

By Heidi Sarna | Published on April 29, 2024

Birthdays are the best time of year to celebrate your loved ones, especially your children. As your child's birthday approaches this year, consider making a bigger splash than a routine visit to your local arcade or trampoline park. Go for the ultimate wow factor and get away with your family for a celebration on a cruise ship — your go-to for the best birthday weekend getaways.

Cruises make the best weekend trips for birthdays because they offer immersive fun for all ages. Trade planning birthday parties for seamless celebrations everyone in your crew can enjoy. And let the ship, which caters to the younger set with nonstop bow-to-stern fun, serve as their playground. I can't think of a more perfect setting for the best birthday trips.

As a mom who has delighted in celebrating my twin sons' birthdays on Royal Caribbean cruise ships, I'm thrilled to offer my top tips for planning the best birthday cruises, ensuring your kid's next birthday is one they'll never forget.

How To Choose The Right Ship And Itinerary

The Mason Jar Family Lunch Father and Son

Every ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet is a potentially great choice for weekend birthday trips. The stage is set the minute you board, with the engaging crew on the gangway — your very own birthday weekend welcome wagon. The buzz is palpable, and a festive vibe permeates the air.

While the ship and its amenities provide the ultimate birthday backdrop, the destinations you visit will also be great opportunities to make memories. Which itineraries promise the best birthday weekend getaways? Well, that's easy, in my opinion. The best birthday cruises are Royal Caribbean's weekend cruises to The Bahamas.

Three-night cruises depart Fridays from three Florida ports — Orlando (Port Canaveral), Ft. Lauderdale and Miami . All of these sailings feature the best way to spend a birthday in paradise: a visit to Perfect Day at CocoCay , Royal Caribbean's private island in The Bahamas.

The Party Starts In Your Stateroom

Royal Caribbean offers a variety of birthday trip celebratory gifts that you can pre-order in advance (or once you're onboard — a win for my fellow procrastinators out there). Classic Royal Caribbean packages include a magnetic "Happy Birthday" sign for your door, while your stateroom is adorned with a birthday garland and festive decor.

Tap into your inner creativity and stash a few extra decorations from home in your suitcase (don't forget some magnets if you want to put more birthday decor on the cabin door). I've found that photos or cutouts of my kids' favorite film characters, superheroes or animals work great.

I packed a few rolls of colorful crepe streamers to celebrate my twin sons' eighth birthdays on a birthday weekend getaway, looping nautical-themed blue and white streamers around their cabin bunk beds as they slept so they'd wake up to festive vibes. I also went to the onboard shop and purchased cute inflatable ships to place around the stateroom and captain's hats for our family to wear. Signifying we were on a birthday trip brought many welcome cheers from the ship's excellent crew as well as guests.

No perfect birthday weekend getaway is complete without cake. Royal Caribbean can help by delivering your sweets , too. Choose a vanilla or chocolate birthday cake, a box of mini vanilla or red-velvet cupcakes or request chocolate-chunk brownies, which can arrive at your stateroom to kick off your celebrations. I fondly recall a birthday cruise with Grandpa and Grandma in tow. We started the all-day birthday celebrations for my boys nice and early with ice-cream sundaes at Ben & Jerry's® for breakfast!

The Best Birthday Activities Onboard

If you were celebrating on land, you might rent a party space or take the kids to an amusement park for their birthday. On a Royal Caribbean cruise, the stage is already set with countless included activities for all ages.

A day onboard quickly fills with fun for all ages, from mini golf to rock climbing, zip lines and water slides, not to mention my kids' favorite, the FlowRider® surf simulator. Much of the fun is included in your cruise fare, with a few options offered at an additional charge, like the RipCord® by iFLY® skydiving simulator on Quantum Class ships. It's totally worth it, by the way.

I can't forget to mention the fun for kids joining the Adventure Ocean® Youth Program. A highlight of my sons' weekend birthday cruise was making new friends, dabbling in some arts and crafts and participating in wacky science experiments in their age-appropriate grouping.

You can always put on your thinking cap (or birthday hat) and design a little treasure hunt for your wee ones. I did this once, drawing a simple treasure map for my sons' birthday that led them around the ship to find six special birthday surprises — a slice of pizza, an ice cream cone, the toy section of the gift shop, roller-skating tag with mom, etc. Royal Caribbean ships are ready-made for special event cruises, so make the most of it.

The best birthday weekend getaways include a stop at Perfect Day at CocoCay. When it's time to take the party from the ship to the shore, Perfect Day at CocoCay is ready for you.

Almost all of Royal Caribbean's weekend cruises out of Florida call on the cruise line's private island. It's an island paradise that truly caters to the whole family, especially kids. Eat as many burgers, hot dogs and fries as you want at the island's five complimentary dining spots when you're not jumping for joy in the giant Oasis Lagoon®, the largest freshwater pool in the Caribbean.

Birthday kids can live it up splashing around Captain Jill's Galleon℠, a shipwreck complete with geysers, slides and drench buckets, and the Splashaway Bay℠ water park for the smallest swashbucklers with fountains, pools, mini waterslides and more.

When you need a break from the party pace, unwind on the powdery sands of Chill Island® and South Beach — family-friendly spots with beach chairs and umbrellas lined up and waiting.

And since you've got a birthday to celebrate, why not spring for Thrill Waterpark® ? With a floating trampoline, wave pool and 13 waterslides, it's a great place to let little ones have a blast and earn bragging rights. Did I mention one of the attractions is the tallest waterslide in North America at 135 feet?

Your kid's special day wouldn't be complete without a ride on Up, Up and Away, a helium balloon that takes guests soaring 450 feet up for out-of-this-world views from the highest vantage point in The Bahamas.

Customizing Birthday Cruises: Top Tips

Whenever you're sailing with Royal Caribbean, you'll see many groups celebrating. It's fun to see many families and groups kitted out in matching T-shirts, baseball caps and accessories designed with the birthday kid's name. Consider planning ahead with your own custom-designed clothing to make your weekend party cruise that much more fun.

Of course, in the dining room at any given time, you can hear the sound of "Happy Birthday" being sung by the servers and fellow guests eager to join in the revelry. Make sure you mention to your waiter that there's a birthday kid in your party.

Think outside of the birthday box and see how you can customize your weekend birthday cruise to suit your preferences and requirements. With some planning, sometimes private spaces onboard the ship can be reserved, and special food and music arranged — especially if you're traveling with the extended family or a group of friends. Contact the Royal Gifts department (or Groups Department , if you're traveling with a large group of friends and family) to see what can be put together.

Capturing The Birthday Fun

The ship's professional photographers will be happy to capture precious moments of your sailing, including a weekend birthday cruise bash. Get the family dressed in their finest — or maybe in the matching T-shirts you brought along or the captains' hats you bought in the gift shop — and make some seriously fun memories to cherish forever.

If you have special thoughts about where you want your photos taken, talk to the photography team. They're a friendly crew with lots of ideas. When your photo shoot is over, you can purchase your favorite pictures in digital form or as prints — it's up to you.

The icing on the birthday cake? Royal Caribbean's family- and birthday-friendly weekend cruises often include frequent offers for families like complimentary sailing for kids if they stay in the same stateroom as their parents. Now that's a birthday present for the adults, too!

Florence in California: Carnival launches new Italian-style cruise ship

birthday cruise long beach

Carnival Cruise Line is bringing a touch of Italy to Southern California.

The line launched Carnival Firenze, inspired by its namesake city, this week. The vessel sailed its maiden voyage from its Long Beach homeport on Thursday.

“We carry more guests than any other cruise line from California, and now this ship is giving us the opportunity to offer more fun to more people sailing from Long Beach,” Christine Duffy, the line’s president, said in a news release . “The recipe combining this ship’s beautiful Italian theming with the familiarity of our friendly team’s hospitality is, in a word, perfecto!”

The ship is the second in the Carnival Fun Italian Style concept after sister ship Carnival Venezia joined the fleet last summer. Both were originally part of Costa Cruises – also owned by parent company Carnival Corp. – before being rehomed.

Where will Carnival Firenze sail?

The roughly 5,000-guest ship will offer Baja Mexico and Mexican Riviera cruises ranging from three to seven days. Stops include destinations like Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta and Catalina Island.

What can guests expect ?

Built in 2020, Firenze was refurbished this year to add Carnival-specific touches. Those include staple venues like the Fahrenheit 555 steakhouse and JavaBlue Cafe.

But the line leans into the ship’s Italian motif. The ship’s atrium was designed with Florence’s Piazza del Duomo in mind, and the Lido deck takes influence from the Italian Riviera. There’s even a replica of Michelangelo’s David on board that used to be on Carnival Pride (the real sculpture is in Florence’s Accademia Gallery).

The theme extends to the food and drink options, with eateries like Italian specialty restaurant Il Viaggio, Mexican-Italian fusion venue Tomodoro and La Strada Grill serving Italian street food. Frizzante specializes in bubbly drinks, and passengers can sip craft cocktails and Italian coffee at Amari.

Other features include the WaterWorks water park and Serenity Adult-Only Retreat.

How long should I take a cruise?: Here's how short and long cruises compare

How much does Carnival Firenze cost?

Prices vary based on sailing date and other factors, but a five-day Mexican Riviera cruise departing on May 30 now starts at $409 per person based on double occupancy, according to Carnival’s website . The fare includes much of the food on the ship, drinks like regular coffee and iced tea and more.

The 10 best Nile cruises for 2024

Egypt’s is one of the greatest stories ever told, and untold. It’s more than a century since British archaeologist Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamun’s tomb; yet Egypt’s narrative continues to unfold. 

The latest find was in January this year at Saqqara, near Cairo, where archaeologists uncovered a rock tomb believed to be 4,500 years old. Located on the Nile’s west bank, Saqqara’s necropolis served as a royal burial ground for the ancient Egyptian capital, Memphis. Last year embalming workshops were found here and archaeologists have also unearthed a granite sarcophagus from the reign of King Ramses II (1279 to 1213 BC) along with hundreds of mummies encased in painted sarcophagi. Among the cache of goods being taken to the afterlife was an intact papyrus scroll.

There will be plenty of grave possessions on display at the Grand Egyptian Museum when it finally opens in its new location at Giza. Alongside 10,000 ancient artefacts the museum will hold King Tut’s entire tomb trove of 5,000 objects. The latest estimation for the opening is mid-2024 – with any luck some cruise passengers will be among the first to visit the museum complex this winter. 

Cairo’s pyramids and museum treasures are a prelude for the main event, however. Strung along the Nile are temples, royal tombs, colossal statues, mausoleums, island monuments and ancient inscripted chambers that stop time. Against this historical backdrop, buffalo irrigate river-fed crop fields, children paddle from littoral beaches and single-sailed feluccas and calls to prayer from nearby muezzin catch the breeze. 

There’s nowhere else quite like it. Here are some of the best ways to cruise the Nile this year. For further inspiration and advice read our complete guide to Nile cruises.

Best for: Old-school romance

Before the arrival of steam-powered boats, visitors would cruise the Nile on small, two-masted dahabiya, led by a “houseboat crew”. La Flaneuse du Nil recreates that slow-travel tradition with style – and hot water and flushing loos to boot. On its journey between Luxor and Aswan, the flat-bottomed boat visits small villages and islands and drops anchor in peaceful seclusion. 

The seven cabins feature louvred shutters, wood panelling and tasteful antiques and there is a beautiful balcony suite at the stern. The recent addition of 48 solar panels means guests will be able to enjoy sailing without the thrum of a generator – just like the old days.

The details: From £5,997pp including flights, five nights on board, a night at the Winter Palace hotel in Luxor and three nights at the Old Cataract hotel in Aswan. Departs January 2025 (020 3582 4990; originaltravel.co.uk ).

Best for: The long cruise

For those keen to linger on the Nile, or for the returning visitor keen to fill in the gap between the pyramids and ancient Thebes, this 10-night sailing from Cairo to Luxor ticks both boxes. The real beauty of this cruise, however, is stepping ashore to world-class sites that are largely unvisited. Highlights include the tombs, catacombs and temple of Tuna el-Gebel; the sarcophagus of Akhenaten in Tel el-Amarna and the temples of Abydos, Denderah and el-Kab. The five-star Movenpick Darakum has 52 cabins spread over three decks, a small gym and a large sun deck with a plunge pool.

The details:  A 10-night Secret Nile cruise costs from £5,725pp including flights, transfers, excursions and international flights, departing on September 13, 2024 (020 3811 6790; vjv.com ). 

Best for: A family cruise

There’s plenty of opportunity for cultural exchange on this holiday with Intrepid, and the variety and pace of the itinerary is ideal for those travelling with older children. After a couple of days in Cairo you’ll fly to Aswan and sail to Luxor via Edfu and the Esna lock. There is dinner with a Nubian family, a visit to the floating Temple of Philae and a lazy sunset sail by felucca. Back in Cairo there is time for coffee at El Fishawy, the city’s oldest coffee shop, and dinner “at home” with a Cairene family.

The details:  An eight-day Premium Egypt holiday costs from £2,219pp staying on board the Nile Style or La Fayan in April and May 2024. Includes four nights in Cairo and a hotel night in Luxor; excludes international flight. Children must be 15 or over (0808 2745 111; intrepidtravel.com ).

Best for: A cruise and beach combo

For winter-sun seekers the lure of Red Sea beaches can be as tempting as Egypt’s tombs and treasures. So why not dip a toe into both? Marsa Alam’s reefs are a favourite with scuba divers and the snorkelling is equally rewarding. Clouds of reef fish are abundant and you might see turtles, tuna, mackerel, dolphins, sharks and even the odd manatee. Discover Egypt combines a week here with a leisurely Nile cruise on the MS Tulip and there is an optional excursion from Aswan to Abu Simbel to see the four colossal statues of Ramses II (£92 by coach or £345 by air). 

The details:  A two-week holiday including seven nights at the Hilton Nubian Village Marsa Alam and a week’s cruise costs from £3,015pp departing in October or November 2024. Includes return flight from Heathrow (to Luxor and back from Marsa Alam) and all other transfers (020 7407 2111;  discoveregypt.co.uk ).

Best for: Accessibility on the Nile

All hotel, cruise, transport and dining logistics are taken care of on this accessible holiday with Responsible Travel. For added peace of mind, guest-relations assistance is available throughout and transfers in an airconditioned vehicle are assisted. Following a three-night stay in Cairo, with visits to the pyramids, Sphinx and the Grand Egyptian Museum, passengers will board a five-star accessible ship in Luxor, for a sail to Aswan. 

The itinerary includes visits to Karnak, the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Sobek (the crocodile god) at Kom Ombo. At Aswan there is a sail around Elephantine Island by motorboat and a visit to the Unfinished Obelisk.

The details:  An eight-day Nile Cruise costs from £2,339pp in an accessible double room for departures in November and December 2024 (except Christmas and New Year). Includes all accommodation, sightseeing in Cairo with lunches, flights from Cairo to Luxor and Aswan to Cairo, private guided tours and a helper during visits to historical places. International flights cost extra (01273 823 700; responsibletravel.com ).

Best for: A side trip to Alex

Part land tour; part cruise, this trip includes a visit to the seaside city of Alexandria, founded in 331BC by Alexander the Great and once Cleopatra’s power base. Remnants of the royal palace and its sunken treasures lie in the city’s seafront bay. The must-see modern library, Bibliotheca Alexandrina, was built to commemorate what was the ancient world’s single greatest archive of literature. Its design features an inclined cylinder, part of which goes underground. The trip includes four nights in Cairo before flying to Luxor to join the ship, which sails south to Aswan.

The details:  A 12-day Cairo, Alexandria and The Nile cruise costs from £2,895pp, including four nights in Cairo, nine excursions, all flights, most meals and home-to-airport transfers. Departing on November 21, 2024 (0808 258 1538;  titantravel.co.uk ).

Best for: Exclusive access

By next year Viking will have six ships on the Nile. The newest on the river is the 41-cabin Viking Osiris, named by Lord Carnarvon, of Highclere Castle. The current earl’s great-grandfather was the 5th Earl of Carnarvon, benefactor and co-explorer of Howard Carter and this trip offers a pre- or post-cruise tour of the Earl’s private collection of photographs detailing the discovery and excavation of the tomb of Tutankhamun.

A 12-night Pharaohs and Pyramids itinerary include visits to the pyramids and spice market in Cairo and the necropolis at Sakkara. Osiris then spends eight days on the Nile with excursions to the Queen Nefertari’s and Tutankhamun’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings and visits to the Temple of Khnum in Esna, the Dendera Temple complex in Qena and the High Dam in Aswan.

The details:  A 12-day Pharaohs and Pyramids cruise costs from £6,945pp, including all flights, transfers, excursions, drinks with lunch and dinner, Wi-Fi and tips. Departing on October 13, 2024 (0800 319 66 60; viking.com ).

Best for: Going your own way

If you prefer a bit more flexibility and are comfortable booking flights and hotels independently, the MS Esplanade sails on three-, four- and seven-night cruises between Luxor and Aswan, and charges a per-night cabin rate. The 73-cabin ship has a small spa, a stylish top deck with poolside cabanas and plush cabins with wide windows. All sailings take in the Valley of the Kings, Karnak and Luxor temples, Edfu, Kom Ombo, the Aswan High Dam, Philae Temple and a sunset felucca cruise.  

Tack on a night or two in Cairo at the 13-room Villa Belle Epoque. Located in the tree-lined suburb of Maadi, the beautifully restored 1920s villa has a ground-floor conservatory overlooking a garden and poolside dining area, shaded by fig, guava mango and lemon trees.

The details:  Double cabins on the MS Esplanade ( mayfaircruises.com ) from $330pp or $300pp triple-share in October 2024. Doubles at Villa Belle Epoque from $240 per night ( villabelleepoque.com ). Flights to Cairo from around £500 return in early October ( egyptair.com ).

Best for: Suite dreams

For dreamy, in-cabin views of the Nile, book one of the four forward-facing suites on board AmaDahlia. With its gym, massage rooms, heated pool, 16 suites and marble-clad bathrooms, the 72-passenger ship doesn’t skimp on luxury. Soak up more river views from the pool where there is alfresco dining and Chef’s Table dinners. 

Itinerary standouts include exclusive access to the Queen of Nefatari’s tomb at the Valley of the Kings and a private visit to the lavish Abdeen Palace in Cairo. The former royal palace contains five museums, a pharmacy of rare medicines, a former royal printing house and a collection of exquisite paintings.

The details:  The 11-night Secrets of Egypt and the Nile itinerary costs from £4,623pp departing 24 May 2024. Includes return flight between Cairo and Luxor, transfers and four hotel nights in Cairo. Return flights from London or Manchester cost £650pp. (0800 520 2250; amawaterways.co.uk ).

Best for: A two-country trip

Uniworld’s stylish river ship, SS Sphinx, features locally sourced fabrics, decorative hand-carved detail and Egyptian artwork. The wine list champions Egyptian wines and menu items include fatteh, mulukhiya (made from jute leaves) and hawawshi (pitta filled with ground beef). After a day’s touring guests can relax in chic, tented cabanas on the pool deck. Along with the usual showstoppers, the itinerary includes afternoon tea at Aswan’s fabled Old Cataract Hotel and an excursion to see birds including herons, kingfishers and the Nile Valley sunbird. Tack on a land extension to Jordan and a donation will be made to the Jordanian women of the Iraq al-Amir Women’s Cooperative, via the TreadRight Foundation. 

The details:  A 12-day Splendours of Egypt and the Nile itinerary including an internal flight (Luxor to Cairo), premium spirits and wine on board and four nights at the Four Seasons in Cairo costs from £5,599pp departing in September 2024. Excludes international flights (0808 273 1777;  uniworld.com ).

Investigators return to Long Island home of Gilgo Beach serial killing suspect

Police vehicles were seen outside Rex Heuermann's single-family home.

MASSAPEQUA PARK, N.Y. -- Investigators returned Monday to the home of a New York architect charged in a string of slayings known as the Gilgo Beach killings.

State and county police officials descended on Rex Heuermann's dilapidated, single-family home in Massapequa Park on Long Island sometime before 7 a.m.

They used their vehicles and set up barriers to cordon off the block and raised white tents in front of the red house.

Officers removed boxes and bags of evidence from the house as forensic and crime lab units spent much of the day on site. Officials from the Suffolk County medical examiner’s office also visited.

Spokespersons for the New York State Police and Suffolk County Police Department deferred questions to Suffolk County District Attorney Ray Tierney's office, which declined to comment.

“As District Attorney Tierney has previously stated, the work of the Gilgo Beach Homicide Task force is continuing,” his spokesperson Tania Lopez said in an emailed statement. "We do not comment on investigative steps while ongoing."

Heuermann has been in custody since his arrest last July, and has maintained his innocence.

His lawyer didn't respond to calls and emails seeking comment Monday, but a lawyer representing his two adult children confirmed that Heuermann's wife and son were on vacation in South Carolina while his daughter was at the Long Island house Monday morning.

“My clients have, understandably a visceral chagrin vis a vis a police presence in their home; they have been repeatedly excluded as having any involvement in any alleged act, and today is unfortunately another mile marker in the grim marathon that is their existence,” attorney Vess Mitev wrote in an email.

Last July, police spent nearly two weeks scouring the home, located in a suburban town about 40 miles (64 kilometers) east of Manhattan.

The search of what Tierney has described as a “very cluttered environment ” turned up more than 200 firearms, including dozens stored in a basement vault. Investigators also tore up a wooden deck, used an excavator to dig up the backyard and scanned for buried objects with specialized equipment.

Monday's search also comes about a month after authorities spent more than a week searching in a wooded area in Manorville. The remains of two women were found years earlier in the area, located about 40 miles (64 kilometers) east of Heuermann's home, though he hasn't been charged in those killings.

Heuermann, 60, is expected to be back in Riverhead court June 18 for a status hearing. No trial date has been set.

In January, he was charged in the death of a fourth woman, Maureen Brainard-Barnes, who vanished in 2007 and whose remains were found more than three years later along a coastal highway on Long Island.

The formal charges came months after authorities labeled him the prime suspect in the Connecticut mother's death.

News | Here’s a look at the history of the Long Beach Pride Parade, celebration

The long beach pride parade and festival has a storied history. let's take a look at key moments..

birthday cruise long beach

Thousands of people are expected to descend on Long Beach’s waterfront this weekend for the city’s iconic Pride Parade, as well as the accompanying — though this year, separately organized — festival. The festival will take place on Saturday and Sunday, May 18-19, while the parade will take place on Sunday morning.

This will be the 41st iteration of the LGBTQ celebration,

Given its four-decade run as one of the city’s most enduring celebrations, here is a look at the history of the parade and festival, and the nonprofit that founded them.

October 1983: The Long Beach Pride organization, which would go on to host one of the region’s largest annual LGBTQ celebrations, is established as Long Beach Lesbian and Gay Pride.

June 1984: The inaugural Long Beach Pride Parade and Festival draws 5,000 people across two days. The second festival, in 1985, expanded to Shoreline Aquatic Park, while the third iteration was notable because headliner Eartha Kitt didn’t show up.

1987: Long Beach Pride was particularly political this year as the LGBTQ community celebrated the failure of Proposition 64 the previous November. Prop. 64 would have put AIDS back on the list of communicable diseases, which opponents feared would cause HIV-positive folks to lose their jobs and would force them into quarantine. Voters rejected the measure 71% to 29%. Long Beach Pride named the concept of “No on Prop. 64” as the grand marshal.

1989: Long Beach Pride celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York, which kicked off the modern gay-rights movement. Long Beach Pride would celebrate the 25th anniversary in 1994.

1993: Long Beach celebrates a decade of Pride. By this time, the annual Long Beach parade and festival had become the fourth-largest Pride event in the U.S.

1997-98: The Pride festival moves to Marina Green Park in 1997 and the following year, it expands to Rainbow Lagoon. Pride celebrates “15 years of unity through diversity.”

1999: Then-Assemblymember Sheila Kuehl, who was the first openly gay state legislator in California’s history, serves as grand marshal. Kuehl would also go on to serve as a Los Angles County supervisor from 2014 to last year.

2000-2003: Long Beach Pride begins a run of particularly iconic headliners and grand marshals, including Little Richard, RuPaul, Village People, Joan Jett, Gloria Allred, Pat Benatar and Chaka Khan. Long Beach Pride also turned 20 in 2003.

2009: At 3:34 p.m. Sunday, May 17, a 4.7 magnitude earthquake shakes the Pride festival’s grounds. It was the first time an earthquake had occurred during Long Beach Pride.

2010: Long Beach hosts the 28th InterPride Conference. InterPride is a network of more than 375 Pride organizations from around the world, according to its website. Long Beach Pride is among those.

2013: Long Beach Pride celebrates its 30th birthday. Appropriately, the organization’s founders — Bob Crow, Judi Doyle and Marilyn Barlow — serve as grand marshals.

2015: Then-Mayor Robert Garcia, who is currently a congressman, serves as a “grand marshal honoree” about a year into his first term. Garcia was Long Beach’s first openly gay mayor.

January 2020: The organization formally renames itself Long Beach Pride to be more inclusive of the entire LGBTQ community.

March 2020: Long Beach Pride postpones and eventually cancels its parade and festival amid the burgeoning coronavirus pandemic. The 2021 iteration was also canceled.

2022: The Long Beach Pride Festival & Parade returns after a two-year hiatus — and adds some new features. Those features include a roller skating ring, the Drag Makeup Dome and the Transcendence History Dome. Iggy Azalea headlines. The event, traditionally held in May, also moves to July.

2023: Long Beach Pride celebrates its 40th anniversary . The nonprofit also moves the parade to August.

January 2024: Long Beach Pride asks the city to help organize this year’s parade because of multiple challenges facing the nonprofit, including financial issues, a reorganization and the parade and festival returning to May — creating a tight turnaround.

Feb. 26, 2024: Long Beach announces that it will pay for and organize the 41st Pride Parade , with an estimated cost to the city of estimated $130,000. This marks the first time in its history that the parade is not organized by Long Beach Pride. The nonprofit, though, is still organizing the festival.
