We looked at the pictures posted on the web about the Henrietta 111 in the dining area people were dressed nice, men in shirts and ties and women in nice dresses. We dressed and when we got there the people looked like they were dressed to go to a picnic in a park or walk on the beach.

We had a wonderful experience on the Fourth of July dinner cruise with our children ages 10 and 13. We enjoyed the dinner buffet, banjo player, tour of the river and fireworks! I gave 4 stars because it was difficult to hear the announcements on the second level of the ship before and during dinner. The pulled pork, chicken, and... More

This was our first experience on a dinner cruise and we were pleasantly surprised at how organized the trip down the river was. The meal was buffet style and there was more than enough to serve all on board. The cruise director was very friendly and informed us of all the points of interest while the banjo player kept us...

The boat itself is a very pretty, nicely maintained vessel. My husband and I had never done this and we found it to be so relaxing and enjoyable. The Bango player was amazing and enhanced the trip so much. We did a Friday night cruise. I would highly suggest that you go and enjoy a quiet, relaxing evening on the... More

We went on the Wednesday night dinner and sightseeing cruise. Our buffet was very good, BBQ ribs and baked chicken which both just fell off the bone. Great banana pudding for dessert was the perfect ending. Our pilot/cruise director was very knowledgeable and gave us an interesting tour. The staff was friendly and the ship was very clean. We will... More

This was our first time on the dinner cruise but my family and I really enjoyed it!! The staff was very nice; the ship was clean and obviously very well cared for. I only have one suggestion and that would be to expand on the entertainment. The hostess/MC was very good as was her husband who played his banjo for... More

we did the TGIF dinner cruise on friday evening. Dinner was excellent. Very nice and relaxing cruise also. The only thing I wished the cruise had was a more scenic route for viewing. Our date and timing of the cruise allowed us though to view an excellent sunset and after the sunset due to some passing storms that missed us... More

We booked the boat for a group dinner and cruise, what a great evening! One of the best group outings we have ever experienced. Everything was outstanding.

We went on the smaller sister ship the Maffitt (couldn't find a separate attraction to rate that cruise) for a one hour scenic cruise. The captain was informative and interesting but really the Cape Fear River is lacking in big sites. It was worth $10 but I would not rush back.
