About River Rose Cruises
Come and enjoy a relaxing cruise on the beautiful River Rose, which departs from the waterfront in Newburgh, NY. The River Rose is an authentic 100 foot Mississippi River paddle wheeler. It served as a casino boat in New Orleans prior to coming up to Newburgh and can accommodate 150 passengers plus crew. The boat has a full bar, a climate-controlled main deck and an upper observation deck to kick back, have a drink and enjoy the weather. Captain John and his lively crew offer cruises for every occasion with narrated Sightseeing cruises. Enjoy a day or evening cruise along the scenic Hudson River with friends and family on one of our many public cruises. We feature Sunday Brunches, Dinner Cruises and Dance Party cruises, as well as Special Cruises throughout our season. Or book the River Rose for Weddings, Parties, Fundraisers, Church Events, School Proms, Corporate Meetings and more. Whatever the occasion, make it special aboard the River Rose. On the River Rose we just have one goal in mind: Make every cruise our passengers attend the cruise of a lifetime! The River Rose received First Place in the 2013 Times Herald Record Peoples' Choice Awards. Visit our website for schedules, pricing and to book a tour.

It was beautiful weather and even though the colors had not really changed yet, it was still enjoyable for my visiting family and me. The one disappointment was that we turned and headed back before seeing the Bear Mt Bridge. I have done this trip several times and my family

The River Rose is a charming, Mississippi-style paddlewheel boat. Friendly and helpful crew, enthusiastic about the Hudson River and its history, including towns between Newburgh and West Point. Take your binoculars for even more impressive sights. There are bars on both

Captain John was so welcoming when we boarded the "River Rose." His narration was very informative about the surrounding landmarks, the Hudson River, and his personal story of how he bought the paddle boat and got it from down South to New York. Our guests who were visiting us
