Took the Valentines dinner cruise and had a great time. I would definitely recommend the evening cruise because of the lighted bridges and the reflection of the city lights on the river. The buffet dinner was good with typical buffet offerings.

Is this cruise handicap accessible for wheelchairs?

Response from F B | Reviewed this property |
I'd say so, yes. I remember the gangplank to be wide enough for a wheelchair. It was quite sturdy, no describable difference between dock & boat. There is plenty of space in the main cabin/dinning area to maneuver. There... More
