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

My husband and I took the cruise on May 9, 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The crew was very friendly and helpful, we had a nice chat with Chris, the pilot, up in the "cockpit" -- and we both through the dinner was very, very good. The grilled Atlantic Salmon was cooked to perfection and a very generous portion.... although... More

Recently enjoyed the dinner cruise as part of restaurant week. The food was nice as always. The artichoke dip was very good. Atmosphere is lovely, the cruise is quite relaxing and the service is always very friendly. We will be back again.

My wife and I treated ourselves to a Christmas cruise aboard the Volunteer Princess in downtown Knoxville. The crew was outstanding, the ship was enclosed and cozy. The lighting was perfect, and the music was very romantic. We cruised south on the Tennessee River for about 1 hour and then turned around. The Christmas lights were mesmerizing. One couple on...

If you get a Groupon, the dinner cruise is half off ($51.75 for 2, normal charge is $91.90 for 2). But you have additional charges on the cruise = $8.50 in taxes, Drinks & Appitizers are an additional charge and Tips are an additional charge. With the lighting inside, You really do not see much on the night cruise we... More

It was a very pleasant trip. The workers answered all of my questions. The ship was Clean and the food was delicious. My only problem was the windows because we couldn't see out. I thought the value was excellent.
