Our first booking was cancelled the day of our planned outing - we had almost left the house when we got the call - we had been the only 3 people to book - it seems like we could have gotten a little more forewarning since we were the only 3...Then the following month when we did go, the boat...

Had not been on the ship in years but decided to take another trip. The staff is nice, the vessel is clean, sturdy and easy to find and board. The trip went as planned and the water was rather smooth so there was no wave motion to speak of. The food served was OK, plenty of places to sit and... More

I dont consider myself a big fan of boats and being on the water but I had never been in Michigan before and it seemed the thing to do. (I saw the Lonely Planet review listing Michigan's Gold Coast ie: West Michigan/Lake Michigan as a #1 tourist attraction) I went on this boat for the luau cruise. The dancers were... More

We took a ride on this vessel for its evening cruise out into Lake Michigan. The narration of our trip was quite informative. Don't go for the food on the boat, just enjoy the ride and the sights. The vistas from the boat were what you might expect - coastline; but then out on Lake Michigan the waves got fairly... More

We took my Parents 78 and 81 years old on the trip around the lake and out into Lake Michigan while they were visiting from Texas on August 8th 2013. They were concerned about access on the boat but found it very easy to get on and off the boat basically just walked on. They then wanted to go up... More

My wife and I decided to take the 4th of July Fireworks cruise and dinner on the Port City Princess. Unfortunately, the ship is just not designed for sightseeing in mind. For dinner, everyone is seated at tables, some tables on the lower deck with just windows to watch out of, and some table on the upper deck, with a... More

The folks at the Port Princess go above and beyond to make the experience perfect. The cruise was wonderful. The food average but the scenery was great. We did make it out to Lake Michigan, but most of the cruise is on Lake Muskegon. A lady enjoying the cruise with me commented to a crew member that she thought the... More

My family was visiting from out of state and looking for something to do in the area. We have 3 generations to please (kids, parents, grandparents) so we took a chance on the Port City Princess and were happy we did. Everyone had a great time. The view is fantastic with old lighthouses & sunsets. The crew was attentive &... More

Leaving Muskegon Lake and heading out for a short ride on Lake Michigan, this is a can't miss. Try the luau, Jimmy Buffet or dinner cruise and you'll have a memory to write home about. Pretty easy ride, not a lot of rocking or rolling, this is a non-dramamine ride.
