About Memphis Riverboats
Authentic American Riverboat Cruises on the Mississippi River. Take a Paddlewheeler a few miles up and down the greatest river in the U.S.A., The “Mighty” Mississippi. Our Memphis sightseeing cruises are a great way to see and learn a bit of Mississippi River history while visiting Memphis, Tennessee.

Special cruises are also offered as well, such as a romantic Valentine’s Day cruise, a beautiful sunset cruise on the Saturday before Memorial Day, and an exciting fireworks cruise on the 4th of July.

We did the dinner and music cruise (2 hours). The staff was very engaging and fun, the food was terrific and the live music was great. There were a lot people on the dance floor! You can go on the upper deck to see the lights of downtown Memphis and the light show on the Big River Bridge. Drinks were priced just like places on Beale St ($7-$12 each). Because of the live band, there wasn't a tour guide explaining the sights so if that's what you're looking for then a daytime cruise would be better. This cruise is about the food, music and dancing. Again, the staff was AWESOME!

We took the sight seeing cruise on Sunday and it was very nice. Weather was perfect and the tour guide was great. I just knew he was reading from a script during our tour, but he wasn't. He knew all this by heart. It was great getting a history lesson while on the tour. Getting out of the parking lot worried me a little bit, but we had no problem. Of we visit the area again I will schedule a dinner cruise for sure.

Parking tried to mess with my wardrobe! The cobblestone is great for weather, but not for heels; but you will manage, lol. It was a nice environment. The band was great! They do need more than 1 bartender, but the drinks were great as well (& you get to keep your souvenir cup). Although it’s kid friendly, I brought my children(17,8,6);and they were bored with the vibe and the music. More for a date night. Food was ok. Staff was great!!!!!
