Hornblower Dinner Cruise

Attention San Diego Feast goers:

There's still plenty of room on the Hornblower Dinner Cruise in San Diego this year. We have a certain number of reserved spots located in the same area on the cruise. As long as spots are available after our deadline (Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018), we can still add on at the same discounted rate (about $50 less per person). But to ensure a spot on the cruise, please register as soon as possible if you haven't yet.

You can choose from half a chicken or charbroiled flat iron steak. Those who have registered but have not chosen a meal item, please email me with your choice at If you have not registered but plan to, please include your choice on your order form.

Registration is also available for other activities at the Feast, including the family dance, teen beach party and the seniors' luncheon. To register for any of these activities, please fill out and submit the Ticket Order Form.

See you at the Feast!

Site Description

The San Diego area is home to a spectacular coastline, fine dining, museums, zoos and much more, and will once again be the site for the Feast of Tabernacles for the Southwest in 2018. San Diego weather offers a pleasant climate year-round.

We are meeting again at the Crowne Plaza for all services during the Feast. The resort is located on Hotel Circle and is just a few miles from Old Town San Diego, Mission Bay, Sea World and other attractions. The Crowne Plaza worked out well as a meeting venue and is beautifully landscaped with a Hawaiian theme.

Because a large number of our members stay at the Crowne Plaza, it greatly reduces our cost and provides us with a wonderful meeting space. The hotel has given us a reduced rate, complimentary Internet, and in-room refrigerators and microwaves. Other nearby hotels and vacation rentals will be available.

Church-organized activities will include Family Day, seniors’ luncheon, teen and young adult hospitalities, a teen beach party, a dinner cruise and more.

Local activities are plentiful, with snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, paddleboards, deep-sea fishing, whale watching, local wine tasting, mountain biking, golfing, scuba diving, tide pools and visiting the famous La Jolla area. San Diego offers a wide variety of restaurants, a number of which sit on the water with views of the Pacific Coast or San Diego Harbor.

Fragrance-controlled room available: No.

Tax rate for accommodations: 12.7 percent.
