This was my favorite activity in Hannibal, and the closest you'll get to having a "Mark Twain" experience. If you stop by the Visitor's Center first, you'll get coupons for a free soda or water on the boat. Friendly staff. Great views. Something you truly MUST DO in Hannibal.

There were only about 25 people on the cruise so we had great individual attention. A young lady by the name of Princess Cash made personal conversation with each guest and made us feel welcome. The meal was a buffet but was really good and certainly plenty to eat. There was entertainment by the Princess later and we could roam... More

A llovely setting, the riverboat was set out beautifully. The band was just right for the night. There was plenty of food and the drinks were reasonably priced. All in all a great night and good value for money.

We did the day cruise, not dinner. It had been a long, very hot day and relaxing on the boat was great. You can choose to sit outside in front or back or you can sit inside in air conditioning (still some great views). The captain was great and we enjoyed learning about the area and hearing some funny stories.... More

Be sure you go on the cruise on the Mark Twain Riverboat! The tour takes about an hour, and the staff are very friendly! The Captain is funny and tells stories during the cruise. He says what he doesn't know, he makes up! He had us all laughing! This was so much fun, I want to go again!

The river is beautiful, and it's a good thing. The dinner buffet was terrible! We were served chunks of beef and dry chicken. Yes, I said chunks. I have never been told there was roast beef and then been served chunks of beef. The chicken was even worse. We actually had to go get something to eat after the dinner... More

Did the day cruise, not the dinner cruise. We had a great time! C'mon! How often do you get to go out on a paddle-wheeler and cruise the Mississippi just like Mark Twain? We had tickets for free drinks on board from a coupon book at our hotel. The boat is multi-level with plenty of good viewing spots. The Captain... More

By the time we got off the boat, we had met the whole family. The captain's daughter sang, the mother ran the gift shop, etc. The trip seemed safe enough, but it was all just small. After going on the Branson Belle (Branson, MO) , you will be ruined for anything smaller. The dinner on the Mark Twain was great,... More
