We took my mother on the Henrietta. It was a fun time with some great views, also great view of the USS North Carolina. We took the lunch trip and it was very good. Hard to beat lunch during a boat ride.

We did an evening "blues cruise" on the Henrietta III recently. The boat was fine, but it had very little outdoor space. They served food for this cruise, but it was mediocre. The cruise went north on the Cape Fear river a bit past the battleship, then turned and went south a bit past the Port of Wilmington. It was... More

Prices vary tremendously based on type, and day of the week, of cruise. Overall, a good value I think. My & my husband's favorite cruise is the special New Years cruise...huge selection of heavy hor'dourves, midnight toast with party favors, dj/dancing, and cash bar. We also greatly enjoy the dinner and dancing cruise on Saturday evenings ("captain's" buffet included)

Dinner and a cruise with and very monotone verbal walk down the rivers history from the captain. Weather was lovely and so was the company but the food was very average. I still would love to try the murder mystery cruise :).

I took my kids on a murder mystery cruise when we were on vacation in June 2014. They had a great time and thought everything about the event was fantastic. I have mixed reviews. My kids loved the "show" and the food - they even went back for seconds on a couple things on the buffet line. I thought the... More

We did the Wednesday night dinner cruise. Cruise was nice but food was very average buffet style. Better off going to dinner afterward on the river walk.

It was a little boring since there wasn't much to see. We opted for the daytime sightseeing tour. We did not have the lunch. It's over an hour and I guess a good "filler" for time. Go to the front of the boat, 3rd deck, on the return trip. There was a good breeze. The back of the boat has... More

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...
