We happened to pull up just as the dinner cruise was boarding and decided to check it out because our kids saw the boat and thought it looked fun, and we were hungry and not sure where to eat so it worked of well. The adult tickets are a bit overpriced, I think, but with the kids only costing $5... More

This is a small family operation: mom runs the gift shop, dad pilots the boat, daughter sings (there are additional crew). The food is good! Can't beat going up the Mississippi as the little birds swoop down to get the insects, at dusk.

We visited when the river was high and our actual cruise had to be rescheduled. They were so easy to work with. My three kids had the best time cruising down the Mississippi River; the captain even gave them each a chance to "drive" the boat. Everyone was so polite and kind to us. I highly recommend this trip for... More

We had already visited the usual (cave, wineries, historic homes, lighthouse, etc.). We decided on the dinner cruise as our last thing to do before leaving the following morning). We are so happy we did. Although the ship isn't new, we didn't expect that. It was clean. The entire crew was friendly and attentive. The food was good and we... More

Went on the daytime tour only. Never lost sight of the dock. Nice if you have never been on a boat on a river. But really would not recommend it,

Got on a tour quick at the last minute. It was a great break from our long trip in the car. It was a great ship, had friendly staff, and it was clean! My only wish was that there were more shaded areas to sit outside. It didn't feel as much like a boat ride while sitting inside because we... More

Loved the ride! We were able to go up to the top deck and enjoy the beautiful scenery at sunset, which was wonderful. The interior of the ship appeared dated and a bit run down, although the table settings were nice. The buffet was as one expects buffet food to be. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. Also, before...

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

Food was ok, not great, Entertainment was fair. Was hoping for a Band. The day we went, it was very hot! We sat next to a window with the sun coming in, and had to move once we were finished eating.
