We took the lunch trip. Lunch was excellent- really good. The boat trip was also very good - very interesting. The commentary was good. Overall, the lunch was a little on the expensive side, but I would recommend this trip over the Spirit of Peoria.

Our phone reservation was handled pleasantly and efficiently and every aspect of the cruise and dinner was well done and most enjoyable. We really liked the live music, the excellent buffet, the great service. Before dinner we enjoyed a drink and the music and the view from our assigned window seats in the main dining area. After the buffet, which... More

Found this dinner cruise on the web. Was very pleased with the evening. Everything was on time, the food was great. A gentlemen named Bob (forgot his last name) was a wonder to behold he saw that everything was on time and first rate. We had a window table for two, great service. I thought that we would have to...

Our company brings many groups for an all day cruise on the Celebration Belle departing from either Dubuque or Moline. It is always most enjoyable and the food is outstanding!

Hosted a large formal event on 9/29/2013 with around 100 attendees. The entire staff was amazing throughout the event and leading up to it. The setup was exactly how we planned. The food was good and the staff made sure everyone's needs were taken care of. The bartenders were generous and understanding (as some of the attendees were quite drunk)... More

The Celebration Belle, offers a number of different types of cruises including dinner, scenic and lunch. The captain of the scenic tour gave a very informative narration on the area, buildings and history of the Quad City area. Dinner cruises also include live music from big band to rock & roll. The gift shop is mostly jewelry but other souvenirs... More

We took the narrated lunch cruise and were very satisfied. Lunch is served buffet style and the food was delicious. (Don't miss the turtle cheesecake!) Our server Lisa couldn't have been more friendly, upbeat, and helpful. She made an already fun time just that much more enjoyable. The narration gave an interesting introduction to the area and the river. The... More

The boat was nice and efficient. Staff very friendly (thanks Mike for your good and pleasant services). Good animation. Interesting comments. Good meal too. Good price. Unpretentious cruise for Mississippi river experience. I recommend.

We did the narrated sightseeing cruise on June 7th. There is parking in front of the ship. You can buy your tickets online or at the office. The tour takes about 1:30 hours and they tell you about Rock Island Arsenal, the lock, the pelicans, the barges and the Mississippi. On the website you can read that you are welcome... More

The boat was nice enough but it did not have a fun atmosphere. The pilot talked the whole way about river info, but it just was kinda boring. Have been on about 8 boats on the Mississippi and this one by far was the least exciting. If you are new to the river this will suffice, and you get to... More
