“Murder Mystery Dinner Cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

This was our first murder mystery dinner cruise and the pride of the susquehanna riverboat did not disapppoint us. We were guided to our reserved seats on the boat 15 minutes before takeoff time. Our salad with raspberry vinagrette dressing was fresh and ready to eat. We chose to have the chicken dinner and were very happy with the meal, the beef dinner looked good as well (will probably try that next time). The crew was very friendly and very well organized, the service was great. The actors engaged people in their audience into all their acts, it was very funny and very entertaining. Their mystery changes each week and lasts the two hours of the boat trip. We decided that we are definitely going to do this again.

“Great for a leisurely Sunday”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

While visiting a friend living in harrisburg we were walking around city island and decided to check out this cruise. It was only $9/ person and we thought it'd be a nice, fun, different way to catch up with the added bonus of getting some sun and being on the water. It was great for all of that. The ship was quiet, minus a few kids running around but that didn't bother us. There are a variety of cruises you can take, including a crab feast or jazz theme, but ours was just a regular 45 min cruise around the river. The scenery wasn't too impressive but it was nice to see all the bridges. The boat moves veryyy slowly, so if anyone if the group has a fear of boats or water they'd probably be fine. In genera, not too thrilling but a nice way to relax with friends or family and spend time on the water.

“Fun excursion boat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Great excursion boat making leisurely cruises up and down the Susquehanna. Only downside: get in line early for the very-limited outdoor seating.
