This is a great little paddle boat on the Susquehanna. It is fun for a couple, a family or a group. They have special events, like wing night or wine tasting and it is also available for rent; think bridal shower, wedding, birthday or anniversary. It does not travel that far up the river but is is a nice slow,... More

Just going on the Pride of the Susquehanna and traveling down the river is a unique experience; adding a wonderfully catered meal, and a campy/fun mystery theater show only adds to a memorable evening. Put it on your 2016 calendar!

I went on this cruise with about six friends. We included dinner afterwards and overall, it was a very nice outing. Can be a bit chilly as the weather gets colder. I rode on top and could look back/down on the paddle wheel. That was a bit nostalgic - kinda harkening back to some old steamboat trip (well, what I... More

We took the dinner cruise while staying in the area. We were there over the Labor Day weekend and they had fireworks after the cruise. The dinner was very good. We were seated with two other couples. It is a small ship and the dining room is very cozy. We were seated with two other couples and had a very... More

The river trip was not great. The view of Harrisburg was good along with the bridges. The river is not navigable for any great distance. The boat is nice, crew friendly and food good. Great setting for a group dinner. We had an HOA get together.

Surprised my Wife with this Dinner Cruise for our 12th Anniversary on Labor Day Weekend. There were Fireworks on the River because of the Holiday which was an Anniversary Bonus LOL. Unfortunately My wife didn't do well and we had to disboard early because she was nauseus. But it was the thought that counts LOL

I went with my husband, my cousin, and her husband. It was like being in an old time movie. Sinatra was playing, we're rolling down the river, everyone's eating crabs and having a blast. I felt like I was in Monte Carlo or something. It was so much fun and the crabs were delicious! When we docked, no one realized... More

This boat ride was a waste of money. You travel really really slowly for about a 1/2 mile, turn around, and then come back. You really see nothing that you can't see just standing on the dock. The upstairs was crowded so we ended up downstairs. Really boring.
