We recently took a 4th grade class on a field trip to Hannibal, Part of the trip was a lunch cruise on the riverboat. The tour was short - although maybe that was perfect for the kiddos attention spans - but for the price it felt like it was a bit much. Our trip included lunch which was a bag... More

Our group of friends decided to take the riverboat tour as we wanted to see some of the Mississippi on our first visit to Hannibal. It was an hour cruise and although we learned a bit of history we felt that the price of just under $20 was high for what we received. (Just the cruise, no dinner) Glad we... More

Perhaps I had very high expectations of this and perhaps that was my fault. But a short hour trip up and down what couldn't have been more than a mile swath of the river was such a let down. The captain clearly has recited the same script 1000 times and they've got this thing down to a boring science. Make... More

We were lucky to get to town on a night that they were going out midweek in October which is rare. They had some extra room so we got to go on this dinner Cruise. It was fun but wish it would have been lighter outside so I

We took a day cruise down the Mississippi River from Hannibal. This cruise was enjoyable, the guides were informative and a little bit corny. We learned that Mark Twain was a riverboat pilot and that the name Mark Twain actually means two fathoms deep. The boat went by the Jackson Island from his book Adventures of Huckleberry Finn . The... More

When we arrived in Hannibal we didn't realize that we made our anniversary trip the same weekend as the annual art festival. We were initially told the dinner cruise was booked, but we inquired if we could be put on the standby list in case of a cancellation. While standing at the counter, someone cancelled. We made the cruise and... More

We took the Oct 15 dinner cruise. The food was delicious. The staff was courteous and well-trained – they managed the buffet line and refreshed our drinks very efficiently. However, we felt that the boat was too crowded. I spoke with another passenger who, when attempting to make a late reservation, was told the boat was full; however, she was... More

Beautiful sunset cruise. Weather was good. River was flowing but calm. The crew was very attentive. We sat on the top deck. The jazz band is on the first deck but the sound was good. The food is a one time buffet, so load up. Food was pretty good for a buffet. I would recommend this as a relaxing end... More

We went on the cruise yesterday, it was relaxing and very informative. The captain gave history as we cruised along the Mississippi and also threw in some comedy, which was nice. You can sit anywhere on the 3 decks that you like and there's a snack bar with alcohol too. Lovely day out on the water!!
