So much fun

We go out on the boat when time allows and always have a great time. We really enjoy the bands and the employees. Great service and always smiling.

Nice boat ride and the food is good. Been on it several times. The bands are good too. You travel up and down the river and the atmosphere is great

The price for the trip we took was excellent. The entertainment we saw and heard, Tad Robinson, was exceptional. The snack selection was lacking.

We rode the Madam Carroll on Lake Freeman listening to the Hwy 341 Band from Wallace, IN. Band was excellent just like always; waitress was friendly and efficient; crew were friendly as we boarded and unloaded. We had a great trip!  We would love to go again and enjoy other bands.

Having children, my wife and I don't make it up on the Madam as much as we used to. We try to go out for a cruise once a year. Depending on the entertainment you can cruise for as low as $12 per person. Drinks from the bar are good and fairly reasonable. They also have a snack bar on... More
