Testimonials

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.

Michelle Van Noord

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

LeiChin Hale

Thank you for everything!!! Everything was great!!!! Thanks again!!!

Erica Castillo

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.

Cynthia Carter

Aileen

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.

Priya

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.

Stacy Thomas

It was great! We loved it.

Byron Luo

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!

Laura Bass

Joel

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.

Lucy

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!

Harsha

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

Loree Swanenburg Keller

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

Laurie Castaneda

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.

Toni Rhorer

The cruise was so absolutely wonderful! The crew was amazing and the day was perfect!

Dale Griner

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

Jacob Holland

I just wanted to write and THANK YOU for helping with the party planning and to make this an unforgettable night. Everyone had a blast and I will never forget it. Thank you!!!!

Aaron

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.

Lisa Adams

The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was great. We all really enjoyed ourselves, everyone was so friendly, the food was good and we were happy to have done something different.

Genevieve Harrison

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!

Nicole Campbell

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!!!!!

Denise Cook

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!

Lesile

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.

Lupe W

As always – you guys were fantastic. The captains and the crews were so helpful and friendly. Really glad about everything. Thank you for always working with me on this – our 330 participants all had a great time!

Ron Domash

It was so nice to meet u in person and also I would like to thank you for putting together such amazing night. We had so much fun and everything was amazing. We enjoy the beautiful sunset . The crew was very welcoming and helpful. We will definitely do it again soon!

Rachel and shad Rabbani

I want to thank you and the crew for a great time! Everyone enjoyed themselves and said the boat was really nice. Thanks again for all the pre-planning help and a great day!

Bruce Flohr

Hi Nikki…the Caroline crew were just amazing friendly and helpful. The captain was exceptional thinking “on the fly” to keep the surprise intact for my wife. Everything was great and hope to be on the Caroline again in the future! John Brown

John Brown

The dinner cruise was the best team building event we’ve had so far. Everyone absolutely loved it! Nothing but positive feedback. I want to thank you and the crew for an outstanding job. Everything was perfect. I’m already getting requests to do the same thing next year. Thank you for being our bartender…drinks were flowing and everyone was happy! Jill

Jill

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. The way you handled the weather conditions by switching ships was handled so fast and efficient. Food was excellent. I would recommend anyone wanting to have a wonderful experience should book a Dinner Cruise with Harbor Breeze Cruises. Thanks for providing us with a celebration we will never forget.

Carole

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

Bob T. and Cynthia D. Folk

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!

Rummel Mor Bautista

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! 🙂

Vera

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,

Leo

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

Cynthia D. Folk

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.

Lamya Mogri

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

Laure White

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.

David

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.

Shelley Pakala

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 🙂

LanAnh

We enjoyed everything! It was a perfect night, great weather, the staff was great (Josh was awesome!), and food was very good. Thanks for all your help.

Lisa Moreno

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!

Susie Mirasol

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. The rounds truly made a difference in creating a more inviting party atmosphere and allowed our presentations to work seamlessly throughout the night. 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.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

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.

Jerel Barrera

Everything went great! I really appreciate all of your hard work and accommodating all of the last minute requests. The food was amazing, and beyond what was expected. Looking forward to many more amazing events!

Chelsea Dale

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!!!

Deanne

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.

Marie Hernandez

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.

Mrs. Pilgrim

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.

Buddy Luna Sweet 16 Party

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.

Harout Kass

Thank you so much! This was a great event and we really appreciate your help with everything!
The crew was great and so glad things went smooth.

Ryan Renfro

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.

Mr. and Mrs. Rich Cormier

I wanted to truly Thank you for the wonderful experience we all had. Everyone was wonderful and we all a great time. Food was good.

Until next year, Nikki!
