This was my first steamboat ride and I loved it. You can buy snacks and drinks on the boat though wait lines may be lengthy. Get on early to ensure you get some great seats. Went with a group and we were able to explore and catch some live music.

We are so glad you joined us. In the busy season we try to make the snacks and drinks move fast - its important to us to please our guests and give them a little time to lay back and enjoy the river. Please come back and see us.

Imagine Mark Twain gathering his thoughts in his venture of writing one of his many literary masterpieces. He seeks the quiet serenity of the Mississippi River on the tranquil ride of the classic nostalgic steamboat. Depending on his preferential seating, you could imagine him

Miriam - we loved your note on the salad dressing! If you want the recipe just let us know at guestexperiences@glnosc.com. Their are many styles of Jazz. Our bands play anywhere from traditional (sometimes called dixieland) to more updated pieces and they do try to please one and all.
