Just returned from taking a group on this paddle wheeler 100 miles down the Mississippi River from Dubuque, IA to Moline, IL. It was beastly hot but we had a terrific day of watching the shoreline go past, eating delicious meals, enjoying the entertainment and just visiting with the passengers on board. Would be a fantastic autumn trip! I have... More

I was a little unsure about the cruise at first,but as the afternoon went on I was glad we we went. The food was really good. It was set up bufet style. The drink servers were quite friendly. The only draw back was your drinks you pay for seperately from the price of your ticket. The excursion was rather siren... More

We did the lunch cruise. A wonderful hour and a half up and down the Mississippi on a paddle steamer with lunch and commentary from the captain. Great day,we were lucky with the weather. You get an allocated seat for the lunch, then go out onto the top decks to watch the river go by. Interesting commentary from the captain... More

Relaxing 4 hour cruise on the Celebration Belle Paddle wheel boat. Fun way to spend an day with friends. Enjoyed the "oldies" music with a very talented husband wife duo. An abundance of food served, morning sticky rolls and lunch buffet with alcoholic beverages optional. Upper level deck for enjoying the scenic river corridor and sunshine. Nice variety of activities... More

I have been here a handful of times, but this recent trip was the first time in several years. I went on the standard cruise that includes no meals, or entertainment. The people I had with me who were from out of town seemed to really enjoy the trip, and it was a beautiful day with great weather. I was... More

Great value for a 3 hour cruse with good food. Enjoyed the early evening out on the mighty Mississippi River enjoying the sights and sounds. Also includes very good food and entertainment.

Although we have visited the Quad Cities area several times in the past, for various reasons, we had never taken advantage of the river cruises. On this trip, we finally did so and it was worth the wait. The boat itself is clean and well maintained. And, from being welcomed aboard by the captain, to our final debarkation, we couldn't...

I have done this boat and tour many times over the years and have ALWAYS enjoyed the experience. Its really not to much more than eating out at fancy dinner would cost. BUT with a nice view and boat trip as entertainment. Sometimes they have had a "1 man band" or 2-3 piece, other times a magician, if its REALLY... More
