I had an awesome time, I spoke with the captain/owner Chris, he was very insightful and very informative. For every question we asked, he answered and he was never negative or anything. The staff was very helpful, especially Jarrod, who answered all of our questions, even the personal ones.......lol. I highly recommend this for anyone who likes the river and... More

We booked our trip in September and received a confirmation for Sunset Dinner Cruise on Friday, Oct. 30th. (to celebrate my 70th birthday). When we got to Knoxville from our home in Texas, I checked the site to verify times. They did not show a Sunset Cruise for Friday, the 30th. When I called, I was told that that cruise... More

The cruise was nice, a little long. The food was not good at all however. It tasted like reheated microwave food.

Dinner and views were good. Only issue we had is at end of cruise we received a bill for our diet cokes, which I thought was already included with our ticket prices. Guess not. No biggie. Staff was friendly. Will recommend to others.

We recently boarded the Volunteer Princess for a relaxing summer dinner cruise. This is an enjoyable way to see Knoxville while having dinner. The staff is professional, attentive, and friendly. We had two different entrees, and both were tasty and included dessert. Our overall experience on every Volunteer Princess cruise has been positive, and we encourage people to experience the...

The process from beginning to end was extremely professional. The event was beyond my expectations. Guest are still calling and telling us what a wonderful time they had. The food was awesome. The staff top notch. I highly recommend having your events at this location.

The cruise was at night and there was no narrator to describe anything that we were looking at and that was not alot since it was dark and we could see nothing.. It is... More

I visited the Volunteer Princess for a networking meeting. It was the most fun I have ever had at a meeting. The staff was friendly and helpful. We got to try several of their food items including Baked ham, baked ziti, bbq chicken sliders, and apple crisp a la mode. They were all good, but the ham was my favorite.... More

The Civil War Cruise is a great way to enjoy Knoxville from the Tennessee River. We took the five o'clock tour on a Saturday evening. The crew is delightful and the captain engaging, humorous, and very knowledgeable on the part Knoxville played during the War. He threw in many other interesting facts about the surrounding area. We will take this... More
