The Steamboat afternoon cruise was relaxing and educational. We chose to have the lunch on board and that was delicious as well.

Everything about the trip was enjoyable. Was able to take some great pictures of the scenery. It was boring for 10 year old granddaughter. I will never take her on another trip again.

Interesting trip. Boarding was easy , no line ups, they let people board early and start eating. It made things move along smoothly. Music and commentary were good and food was tasty.

We had perfect weather and sat outside watching the world go by. It was interesting to hear about the Mississippi and the industries that used/use it. There was a bar to get drinks and a gift shop. We popped in to see the jazz band, but unless you had the dinner cruise booked you couldn't get a table. That was ok as you could hear the band through the speakers on the boat and it was much nicer to be outside.

Superior music and the food was much better than I'd expected. A wonderful time well worth the money.
