A nice relaxing ride down the Cape Fear. Lots of history with great views from the top deck. Even with a little rain still enjoyable.

Have only been on the Henrietta once for the Valentine's Cruise in February this year. The food was amazing (buffet style), drinks and dancing were a must. Couldn't enjoy being outside of the boat since It was so cold, but it was worth the ride and wait in the line!

We took an evening dinner cruise on a Thursday. The ride and narration was very pleasant and informative. We enjoyed hearing some history about the river and town of Wilmington. The captain goes out of his way to give facts and true stories of the area. The dinner was Italian and very tasty. The servers are on top of their... More

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
