Great for a group

We went with a group, that always makes it more fun. It was a very warm day so we could be topside and view the fall colors. We had a great time. The food was ok.

This outing was dismal to say the least. The entertainment was tacky and disorganized. The 3 man band was okay. The Santa not so good. He made several attempts to get men to dance with him. When he finally got one to agree, he proceeded to pat the guy on the bottom while they were dancing. I guess that was... More

We did the lunch cruise on a cool cloudy day and it was still great! Beautiful scenery and very accommodating staff. The lunch buffet was surprisingly very good, more than enough to eat and very well prepared. This is a great way to see the river and learn some history.

The buffet offered chicken, roast beef, potatoes, green beans, rolls, salad…and tea/water to drink included in the ticket fees. We ate with a view of the river slipping by as the entertainer sang...

Absolutely loved our November Fall Foliage Cruise. You start with a buffet lunch consisting of rolls, Caesar salad, green beans, roast chicken, potatoes and roast beef. Desert was cheesecake. Everything was good and there was plenty. They have a full bar and prices are reasonable. They travel upstream and the vistas are beautiful. We saw four bald eagles and three... More

Booked a comedy cruise and the comedy turned out to be the comedy of errors. We had lousy food that was.cold. not.plentiful enougj and ran out before all patrons had gotten food.
