I love being on a boat of any kind. This was special because the food was amazing. I would suggest having the prime rib sauce on the table for dipping but other than that... read more

I thought this is where "old" people went for dinner! I was wrong. We took a ride down the river and back up with our children and another family. The kids loved the boat. They even got to sit in with the captain. We learned all about the community, both Iowa and Illinois, and the river. Cheap, educational fun.

Wonderful couple and professional. They work with you to make sure you and your party have a great time and they are accommodating. Staff members helpful and friendly. Guests are still talking about what a wonderful time they had. Really had a phenomenal time!

Booked the "Fall Foliage" four hour cruise. The advertising promised narration. None. It was a missed opportunity for visitors to the Quad Cities to learn about what we were seeing as we cruised and descriptions of the trees. Didn't expect to hear the duo performing country songs in the dining room piped into all parts of the boat. Cramped dining... More

As far as riverboats go, this one is just average. Food is average (although the prime rib was tasty!), music is average, wait service is average to poor (to downright slow...) Nice slow ride up, down, up, down the river. Don't bother with the giftshop on board. Very nice giftshop on land before or after boarding the ship.

This was a fun little cruise that gave a history of the area and pointed out several historic sites. The captain was very knowledgeable and gave a very interesting tour. We only did the one and a half hour cruise, but no doubt the longer dinner cruises are enjoyable, as well.

Went on a Sunday afternoon lunch cruise with my family on the Celebration Belle. We paid $33/person and had reservations, but when we boarded, nearly 30 minutes before departure time, there were no seats at any tables. We were on the first deck and told to go to the second deck. No seats there either and were told to try... More

1.5 hour lunch cruise. The waiters were extremely attentive. Lunch was good. Especially liked the garlic Parmesan salad dressing. Took kids up to meet Captain Mike. The tour was just long enough to get sense of the river. Only dislike was Kenny G music during lunch. Should have used riverboat jazz.

Reasonably priced dinner cruise. Old style fun. Dinner was good. Staff was excellent. Our Waiter, Travis, was exceptionally exceptional. The staff was really into it joining into the dancing when they were done serving. My wife enjoyed it. Glad we took it.

Took the 2pm afternoon cruise. About 1.5 hour trip up to the north bridge and back. The captain did an excellent of narrating along the way. Talked most of the time and pointed out points of interest. Great way to see some of the sights. Best $15 you'll spend, well worth the price
