Henrietta has left Wilmington

Newspaper reports Henrietta was sold and is going to a new berth elsewhere. It was a nice attraction when it was here.

An iconic piece of the Wilmington Riverfront for many years the Henrietta is no longer here, sold to a company in Florida. Sad to see her go.

Dine to some lovely Murder mystery group or acoustic music and slowly glide down the Cape Fear River in this lovely old time replica of a boat from years gone by! it's really a lovely trip and the food was quiet nice!

What a fun way to spend an evening. Enjoying a cruise up and down the Cape Fear while enjoying a murder mystery dinner theater group. The food was good, the company of other cruisers was great and the entertainment was excellent. The waterfront along Wilmington Harbor and downtown Wilmington are must do's for both locals and visitors. We love it!!

We had a great time on board and learned so much about the Wilmington area. The folks were friendly and funny. It was very enjoyable.

We are sad to see the landmark Henrietta go but gone she is. The owner promises to replace Henrietta with a smaller river boat. Stay tuned. Henrietta left in April 2016.

The cruise was nice, the dinner was decent, but the mystery show was horrible. Just go for the cruise or a dinner cruise - skip the corny mystery show.
