We went on the 12:30 buffet cruise. The trip was great. They are very handicap friendly and accommodated my wheelchair with no problems. The buffet was varied and had something for everyone. The highlight of our cruise was the snow during the entire cruise.

Wow! I grew up about 45 minutes from Pittsburgh but moved to the west coast 30 years ago. I recently had occasion to visit family in PA and to take a ride on one of the Gateway Clipper boats. What a great thing to do whether you are from the area or a visitor! The hour cruise starts at the... More

We shared the evening with family and friends. We were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. Our kids chose the boat ride instead of a party that no-one wanted. Everyone had an enjoyable evening spend dancing, eating a wonderful meal, and half-price drinks the first hour. Our evening was so special! We had rode the Gateway Clipper many years ago, and...

Today we took the afternoon cruise to celebrate my aunt's 90th birthday. We had a perfect October day...good weather and colorful foliage. The food and entertainment was great. All of the crew members were pleasant and cooperative. I had not been on the boat for a while. It is dated and could use a make-over.

We took the Thursday bbq cruise and it was excellent. The staff was very organized and helpful. We expected either good food, bad cruise or bad food, good cruise but both were good. They offer half price drinks the first hour which is a good start and they stay on top of your table. The bbq buffet was killer. They... More

The cruise was OK - I'm glad we went, not sure if we will do it again. We were lucky that the weather was perfect, clear and not hot/cold - the highlight was the boat and the scenery. Isn't that why you go on the Gateway Clipper? Beautiful tour, plenty of seating on the top deck, even with a large... More
