“Cruise excellent, but where's the greeting?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We opted to do a lunch cruise. The service was very good, the lunch was enjoyable and the ride was relaxing. Would have preferred a welcome from the boat's captain or a thank you when we returned. Would have also liked to have learned a little history of the boat and the area. That would have enhanced the trip. Otherwise, the price was right and the cruise offered beautiful scenery of the St. Croix River and the Stillwater area.

“Very relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

We went on the Friday evening dinner cruise to enjoy a night with our 3 daughters. It was very relaxing and the prime rib was delicious. The only down side we experienced was the cigarette smoker at the next table. This is allowed on the outdoor deck. It was such a nice evening that we chose to endure the smoke and continue to enjoy the beauty. This was our second trip with St. Croix Boat and Packet and both experiences have been great.

“Beautiful scenes but didn't know what we were seeing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

The food was good, the workers were good, boat was good but I wish there had been a narrative of what we were looking at. Was never addressed with anything. Just got on the boat, took off, ate, came back.

“relaxing on the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We were looking for something to round out our Minneapolis weekend with on our way back to Wisconsin. We discovered the St Croix Boat and Packet online and it looked like an inviting way to spend our Sunday. We chose the brunch cruise and thought the food was very good and fresh, especially the fruit. The staff was very courteous and accomondating. We took some special needs people with us and they seemed to enjoy the trip on the water very much. The boat didn't go far, but it was a nice relaxing day in the sun. We were told by others that some of there other excursions are just as nice. We look forward to another trip in the future.
