Our parents and my brother came to town and we treated them a sight seeing cruise of MKE. The day was perfect and the tour guide was very upbeat. He is actually pursuing his PhD in architecture/history so he knew his stuff quite well. The fellow passengers were also quite nice - talking to us and one another, and taking... More

I booked the Beer And Brat Cruise and I never had so much fun in my life. A great way to meet some of the greatest people. Awesome views of the city and lake. Only one type of brat was served (and I wished that they were grilled a bit longer though) but are all-you-can-eat. Local beers are served and... More

My husband and I went on the Surf and Turf dinner cruise for our anniversary. It was wonderful. The food and service was great. Beautiful views of the city. Great for an anniversary, birthday or special event!

We thought the cruise was great! We went on the Champagne Brunch cruise, and, started out at the Ports 'o Call restaurant. In addition to the lovely setting on the river where it leaves from, the boat, called the Harbor Lady, was very clean, and the staff was personable and attentive. The food was excellent, and there was certainly enough... More

We went for the afternoon Historic Milwaukee Tour. Ugh! I would NEVER recommend this particular tour to anyone. The boat is mostly enclosed with big dirty scratched up windows you can barely see out of. The inside looks like a 1980's bad banquet hall...vinyl banquet chairs scattered around tables with yellowing tablecloths. Nothing is secured down. The maroon printed carpet... More

Summerfest officials have rescheduled the Big Bang Fireworks Show for Thursday, June 26th at 9:30 p.m. This is due to expected dense fog. The Edelweiss BIG BANG cruise however, will not reschedule, either will they refund your $50 per ticked price. So you can either just forfeit the price of all the tickets you purchased or take a boat ride... More

Absolutely awful costumer service! We were told to be there at 5:30 and when we showed up at 5:31 with a bachelorette party of about 20, the boat was already way down the river.

We held our daughter's wedding ceremony and reception on the Lakeside Spirit on Friday, June 6th. From start to finish this was a wonderful experience. The Special Events Coordinator made sure our every wish was satisfied. The boat was clean, the staff attentive, the food terrific and the whole experience was fun and relaxing. We were able to have the... More
