We chose this cocktail cruise as a last minute adventure. For about $17 each we had an hour and a half cruise to Lock#11 and then back down the river. It was a cool evening so we chose to sit downstairs. This is a well kept up boat. The windows were clean and clear. The head was roomy enough to... More

Great Crew! Amazing scenery for a little price.. Drinks and appetizers for a very low price. Traveled with 24 family members of all ages and each enjoyed the adventure.

My husband and I tried to get on the dinner cruise, but it was filled. We opted for the happy hour cruise. I would say that 75% of the passengers were college students looking to drink as much as possible. Tap beer and appetizers were included with the fare. I would have assumed tap beer to mean domestic, but it... More

We had such a wonderful time on our Sunday evening dinner cruise. There were only about 24 passengers and 3 crew, so plenty of space for everyone. The yacht was very clean. Huge windows, so even if you choose to stay inside in the air-conditioning you still have a great view along the Mississippi. The crew were friendly. Everyone was... More

We did the dinner cruise (7:30-9pm) there was a small amount of people which really was that much nicer for us. The meal was excellant, the wait staff was great! The trip was absolutely wonderful! Highly recommend!

Because of the size of our group we were able to arrange for a special happy hour cruise on the yacht. Wow, was that neat! The children (and some adults) were allowed up to visit the captain of the boat. They were very impressed. The boat had a lovely area inside for seeing the river yet being out of the... More

My husbands school classmates celebrated their 60th anniversary and one of the events was the brunch river cruise. What a hit it was. We also added a trolley tour of Dubuque. It all was very much enjoyed by the non residents and the residents of Dubuque. In arranging the cruise the people at Charlie's were so helpful and accommodating. Great... More

We arrived with no reservations and they bent over backwards to be sure my friends and I got on the happy hour cruise! It is a lot of fun and they serve beer the entire time so you never had to go down the stairs to the bar..also served us chicken wings and ranch dressing , which is very good...... More

A beautiful evening on the Mississippi. The ride included beer, soda and appetizers. Unfortunately, many of the rest of the people on the river ride seemed to have just turned 21 and wanted to get full value for the price. Also, although they were good, the mini sloppy joe's were not my favorite.

Large riverboat that does many differant type of trips on the Mississipi. Captain Dick is super. The boat does dinner cruises, drinking cruises, wedding cruises. You name it, they do it. Nice large ship. "Funman"
