I really want to commend Celebration River Cruises with accommodating my wife's dietary restriction. She is gluten-free for medical reasons and when I called in to schedule our lunch, they were EXTREMELY knowledgeable and helpful. On the cruise, the waitress was also helpful and my wife did get a chance to talk with the chef as well to confirm. The... More

The day trip departed from LeClaire, IA to Dubuque, IA. It was a relaxing and beautiful trip up the Mississippi River. They served breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food was plentiful and delicious. There was entertainment during each meal an during other parts of the day. I would highly recommend this trip. They cater to bus loads of folks in... More

We spent the afternoon of the fourth aboard the Celebration Belle River Cruise on the Mississippi River. The cost is $15.00 per person for the sightseeing cruise which lasts 1 1/2 hours. We took our 11 year grandson actually ,it was his suggestion to go on the riverboat. He loved it and the Captain did a narrated history and facts... More

The tour we took started in Dubuque, IA and ended in Moline, IL. It was an 11 hour/100 mile trip on the Mississippi, which included 3 full meals. Breakfast served at 7:30, lunch at 11:30, and dinner at 4 'clock. Would have been better to have served only 2 meals and perhaps a snack. Too much food in too short... More

The lunch cruise was 1 1/2 hours. Very informative. Great lunch. We paid extra to sit by the window and we are glad we did. It was humid that day so we stayed at our table. We had time to check out the outside deck before we left and that got crowded after lunch anyway. The barge that holds the... More

Several of my siblings and their families met for an evening dinner cruise. The staff was very accommodating to our somewhat large group. The food was quite good for a buffet and even though it was a full boat, we never seemed crowded. After dinner, while the band was playing, our group was able to go topside to talk in... More

The food was very good and the staff was very pleasant and friendly. They cruise for 2 1/2 hours and the meal is three main entrees including Prime Rib, cold sides, hot sides, dessert, and... More

This is not a cruise ship. Don't expect what you get on a cruise. This is great for viewing life on the Mississippi River. We took a two-day trip up the Mississippi R. from Le Claire, IA to Prairie du Chien, WI. The riverboat served us three meals each day, buffet style. The food on the second day was the... More

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
