Incredible. So much fun. Lots to keep the children busy from the story telling. The Magician, Captain Taffy and of course The Cinnamon Bear.

I especially appreciated the friendly servers. We just stayed in our same seats that we ate lunch in and enjoyed hot cocoa and coffee. ( I wasn't sure how to tip though at the end of the event- I hope it was appropriate)

A beautiful fall day helped set the mood for a 2 hour lunch cruise on the Portland Spirit. Quick, easy boarding, fun safety demonstration, and we were off. Lunch was served immediately. Decent food for this type of attraction. Alcohol and dessert are extra, but...More

Very uninspired cruise. Very short distance travelled up and down river with very little of interest to see, as reflected in the narrative. Nicely kept vessel, but overall not very good value for money.More

It is $114 per person. But we are unfortunantly sold out for the fall trip. We still have availability for next spring though.
