We went on the Riverboat Cruise for Sunday Brunch. The cruise is a fantastic way to compliment either a trolley or walking tour of historic Savannah as you'll see historic Fort Jackson as well as the modern Savannah Ports. I highly recommend the lunch or brunch cruise as it provides both an excellent overview as well as a delicious meal!

This is an afternoon tour of the harbor and the port. The narration was very informative. The captain told us about the port, buildings, ships everything I wanted to hear about. I found the audio sound to be fine. I've been on other nature tours and didn't want another one of those. I just wish it would of gone farther... More

I reserved the riverboat cruises on my marriage anniversary. I took special anniversary add-on provided by Riverboat cruises in addition to their cruises tickets. When we went on the cruise, we just received three balloons & one red rose on our table, however this anniversary add-on contains cake & champagne which we were hoping would arrive but did not. Basically... More

We did the Santa cruise. Our 5 year old got to take pictures with Santa and Buddy the elf. The tour was about an hour long and very informative narration of the sights along the Savanna River. They gave our daughter free cookies, but the snacks and bar are pretty high priced. An adult beverage was $20! The staff was... More

While vacationing with family in Savannah we took a ride on the Savannah River Queen Sailing with Santa. The kids loved that Santa was on the ship with elves and he did walk around after he finished getting pictures with all the kids on first floor. The place where tree was made it difficult to get a good picture as... More

The best part of this "dinner cruise" was the picture of our foursome taken at the dock before we embarked. Then we walked the gangplank to board. The cruise started promptly at 7 pm. Neither a cruise... This may be an enjoyable trip up the river during summer, when you can see something. You can not see ANYTHING out the... More

We chose to do the dinner sightseeing tour instead of the day excursion. Paid extra to get a window seat but after the seeing the crowd (second deck was completely empty and very few full interior tables on the first deck), I might have been able to save money without it. Servers were all friendly and smiled a lot. Band... More

My husband, 5 year old daughter and I decided to take a cruise to see the sights. Although we didn't go very far, we learned a lot from Captain John, who provided an excellent history of Savannah's port. We enjoyed listening to the Captain and looking out the windows to imagine what it would have looked like in the past... More

The staff and crew were very professional and tried to accommodate everyone. There was assigned seating and it was done in an orderly manner. The food was good and was the typical thanksgiving fare...However, service could be improved and was a lot slower then it needed to be. The music on the 2nd floor was great and he got a... More
