World News: . []

San Diego, May 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --             San Diego, May 16, 2018:  Morning person (plural morning people) (idiomatic) A person who wakes up, without difficulty, early each morning and is alert and active during the first part of the day.

Hornblower Cruises is adding a new time on their traditional San Diego daytime harbor cruise starting May 26th, by featuring an early option for those visitors who are “up and at ‘em” and ready to start their San Diego adventure with an 8:45 am departure. Sightseeing cruises depart conveniently from Pier 2 at the foot of Broadway Street downtown. Hornblower is sweetening the deal with free coffee to those who want to try this first cruise of the day!*

This is the big change to the san Diego’s popular harbor tour sightseeing schedule which hasn’t changed much in over 25 years.

“We’re answering a huge demand for an early cruise from both our European and east coast visitors still on their time zones and from individuals compressing their SD experience into only a few days to fit in all the sights” says Kelly Johnson, Public Cruise Manager for Hornblower Cruises in San Diego.  “With our new 8:45 early cruise, guests can enjoy a spin around San Diego Bay and then have plenty of time left in their day to head over to USS Midway, and have time for the Zoo or SeaWorld,” commented Rebecca Milkey, Director of Marketing, Hornblower Cruises & Events.
