The employees are extremely rude. The boats smelled terrible. They keep adding new fees to your package. Doubt the validity of those that gave them high scores. They are also extremely culturally insensitive. Save your money.

Took the riverboat over to Paul Brown Stadium the staff was very pleasant and polite. Communication on the boat regarding safety was A+. Cost was affordable. I would highly recommend this transportation vessel to attend and Red's or Bengals game.

We went on a cruise for the WEBN Fireworks on Labor Day. Tickets were NOT cheap and for my family to go, we shelled out close to $600 for 6 of us. That kind of money should get you something a bit more than the experience we had. The food was worse than the worst wedding food I've ever had.... More

We rented this boat for my sister's bachelorette party and were very disappointed. The boat was dirty, the food was bad, and to top it all off they wouldn't give me my deposit back. I had to file a complaint with the BBB in order to get it back. It's a shame, it could be a really nice service but... More

32 members of our family took a morning cruise with Queen City Riverboats in early April. When planning the cruise, I found the staff to be very professional. The three member crew was very kind and helpful. We enjoyed the snack bar and both levels of the very clean and well-maintained boat. The captain was full of information on Cincinnati's... More

We recently went on a dinner cruise for a wedding rehersal dinner on a Friday night from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Right from the moment we walked on the boat we were very disappointed. The boat was very old, creaky, lopsided, SMELLY, and dirty. There were spiders everywhere. The carpeting was stained and smelled VERY bad. The two barmaids... More
