It is so nice in the summer months to take a cruise on the riverboat and set on the top deck and just watch the world go by while having a nice cool refreshment of any sorts.

We signed up for the dinner cruise which was supposed to be a blues/big band type of music with dining and dancing, but it was a substitute entertainer. The music was awful, and it wasn't just us. Two other comments we heard were "you can't go anywhere on the boat to get away from the sound" and "I really just... More

As overseas visitors we were looking forward to this one.The staff were friendly and pleasant. However the boat pushed off round 6:30 and it was dark soon after so couldn't see anything. The 'entertainment' was provided by the daughter of the captain whose singing ability was barely acceptable. Her performance was loud and intruding on any attempt at conversation or... More

The Captain was very informative on his info and about the river. He made the cruise so enjoyable. Have recommended this excursion to everybody and am going to do it again this week to show my two aunts (Ca. & Tx.) how beautiful the river is and the views from the riverboat.

Did not do the dinner cruise but rather the 1 hour river cruise. It was very nice and informative. Made me want to take a much longer cruise down the river.

While visiting Hannibal I decided to try the Mark Twain Riverboat Cruise. It wasn't extraordinary, but it was a fun way to learn about the history of the Hannibal area. The boat seemed a little sad and in need of TLC, much like how I felt about the city of Hannibal. The cruise goes out once a day at 1:30.... More

We didn't attend the dinner cruise, but we did so enjoy just the hour spent on the river with Captain Steve. It was very peaceful and enjoyable. Many sites were pointed out along the river that otherwise we would not have known about. Never knew how Sam Clemmons chose his "pen name".

The one hour riverboat cruise was nothing spectacular even though it was pleasant. The river views vary little during the trip, but the captain's narrative was informative.

Went on the hour cruise. Didn't have time for the dinner cruise. Enjoyed the cruise down the river and the view of the area from a different perspective. The commentaries were enjoyable and humorous.
