This is our 12th Trip on the Volunteer Princess Cruise. As always, the food was excellent. From the time you board to fish - Great The staff is extremely friendly. If I could, I would give them more than 5 stars. Will see you soon again.

My husband booked a sunset dinner cruise "Gold Package" for our 20th anniversary. It was a wonderful surprise and we had a great time. We were seated in the front of the boat. Had a bottle of chilled champagne and chocolate covered strawberries waiting on us when we arrived. The hot crab and artichoke dip appetizer is delicious and gave... More

My Husband booked the dinner cruise for our Anniversary & we went on a Friday night (starlight dinner cruise?). I considered wearing jeans but was really glad I didn't because I would've been the only one in jeans.... I ended up wearing a dress & was glad I did- some were wearing formal dresses, I was dressed slightly more casual... More

Don't waste your time on this, please. First of all, I purchased a Groupon Certificate for this dinner cruise for our wedding anniversary. As soon as we boarded the boat, the lady asked for my Groupon certificate, which I wasn't advised to bring. When I made the reservation, I was only told to bring our boarding pass, which was emailed... More

We reserved a dinner cruise for Boom Days. I expected much less than was delivered. I did expect a great viewing spot for the fireworks, and that excelled. The leisurely stroll up the Tennessee River delivered a great perspective of the bountiful beauty, but the real surprise was the grand attentive service. I expected very mediocre food but was very...

My wife and I did the sunset dinner cruise after purchasing a Groupon deal. It exceeded our expectations. The food was excellent-we had glazed salmon-and the service was great as well. Quantities were generous and our server even brought our dessert to us outside on deck. The air conditioned dining area is spacious and there is outdoor seating for viewing... More

My husband and I are local and decided to use a Groupon to explore more of our own city. The original date I wanted was unavailable due to the fact that the cruise has a limit to the number of Groupons they will accept per night. The lady I spoke with was very friendly and offered me many other dates... More

While family was in town for the holiday, we made reservations as a special surprise treat for them. Parking is a little difficult and if you have someone who has trouble walking, even a little, be sure and make arrangements with the staff to have them picked up at the top of the hill on their golf cart and taken...

My boyfriend had taken a promotion out of state, so we celebrated as a family one evening. My children still talk about the experience. The Cpt. allowed the children to steer the cruise boat. The meal was good, and the staff was very accommodating. We do not eat dairy, and they made sure that we had all courses to our... More

I had two groupons so there was a total of six people on my party. The staff really did a wonderful job catering to my special food needs (I have severe food allergies) and happily made a few changes to the menu so I could eat. We took care of this all in advance. The cruise itself was nice and... More
