We were on a chartered event, so I'm not sure if all the wonderful things we experienced are available for every cruise. Arriving at City Island, parking is plentiful but may involve a very long walk with some stairs to get to the departure point. The excitement starts before the cruise begins, as a staff member came out to meet... More

Not particularly good for handicap challenged people. Getting to this venue was a challenge for people on walkers or who had mobility problems. Hilly! If you have a scooter ...ok....otherwise be advised that it will be challenging. They would be wise to have golf carts to escort passengers to and from their vehicles. A wise investment for them! I could... More

I have been on the Pride for approximately 4-5 cruises and have always found the staff pleasant, the cruise entertaining, and the overall activity well worth my time and money. The schedule can be found at the following location: http://harrisburgriverboat.com/ As a parent with a young child, the 45minute cruises provide a safe environment, which serves alcohol, and provides a...

I saw a previous review about the cruise that didn't happen and was hoping it was just a one off, but my 3 pm cruise on the 4th of July was canceled. It was a sunny day and weather was nice, but I arrived at the dock to find a sign that the cruises for the day were canceled due... More

While the band was excellent and the surroundings were pleasant, the cruise did not take place because the engine was not operational. This was announced by the Captain. Instead of offering a rain check for another cruise, two drink coupons for a maximum of $10 were supplied. Attendees had already been drinking for a couple of hours! When asked if... More

We spotted this cruise on one of the informational websites and thought it would be nice and something different. We had our grand children with us so we always need something to keep them occupied. We arrived in plenty of time before departure but one thing I found was the lack of signs directing you to the boat dock. I... More

The Jazz Cruise was great! We had a wonderful time listening to local Jazz musicians, having some wine and a bite to eat. The sunset cruise was beautiful. Will be back and bringing friends and family for pre-wedding event.

My boyfriend and I booked tickets for a 1:30 tour on Memorial Day to wrap up our Hershey Park trip. We arrived very early to allow time to locate the boarding spot and were extremely disappointed to be charged $3 for parking. Because there were no signs anywhere, we asked the parking attendant where the loading dock was, and he... More

Everyone is greeted by the actors and taken to their seats. Meal begins quickly and act begins prior to even leaving dock. A great evening of relaxation and good food.

We live in the UK and following an organised Heritage tour we travelled to Harrisburg to visit our niece. I'd seen the Pride listed in TA and thought an evening cruise with a meal sounded like fun. The four of us were shown to our table by friendly staff, The boat was full as there was a large party, a... More
