River Cruise

A good river cruise, but not like the Chicago River. Narrator has some interesting observations to point out. Good cruise if you cannot make it to Chicago.

The Oktoberfest Dinner Cruise on 10/31/15 was a most joyful experience! Only three of us had signed up for this cruise and, believe it or not, they didn't cancel for the lack of ticket sales! THE CREW WAS GREAT THE SERVICE WAS SUPERB THE DINNER WAS TRULY A DELIGHT, NOT ONLY FOR THE TASTE BUDS BUT FOR THE EYES AS... More

We were on the Saturday afternoon river cruise, and had a really great time. It was a fun family trip, and the cruise was just right. No food was involved, just a few brews from the upstairs bar. Beers were priced fine, as expected. There was a tour guide telling the history of some sites, but really wasn't listening because... More

We weren't sure what to expect for $28 -tacos and margaritas and a boat ride, what a deal!! We had so much fun! The boat was clean, food and drinks were good. Views were amazing. Boat was sold out but there was plenty of room to move around or sit. We will be doing this every time we are in... More

Moreover when i complained regarding how our cruise was delayed 45 minutes, and not compensated for, i got, " there is nothing we can do... More

Just went on the Margarita cruise last Friday evening for a corporate outing and I have to say I was a bit disappointed. The cost for the cruise, limited taco bar and unlimited margaritas was $28.50. I have to say limited taco bar because it was just that: ground beef, lettuce, cheese, salsa, sour cream and jalapenos. They pretty much... More

The weather was great, the sights were awesome out on the Milwaukee River and in the Lake Michigan harbor. The cruise was historical and the tour guide was knowledgeable and well spoken. So nice to learn about Milwaukee along the river. The price was very reasonable for the afternoon tour. The boat was full and I believe a few people... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner cruise. Contrary to some of the posters our experience was great. Only 8 couples on board. Food was good and we enjoyed going under all the bridges leaving the city. The skyline of Milwaukee at twilight was beautiful. I would recommend this excursion to all.
