Dinner cruise and current condition of Missouri River

My husband and I will be taking a weekend vacation to Omaha on May 20. We were thinking about going on the dinner cruise that is in the Missouri river. Has anyone taken this dinner cruise? It’s operated by River city star. Also is the Missouri River overflowing in Omaha? I have been watching the news and there seems to be some issues with the river due to the recent rain.

Thank you,

Adrienne

No flooding here thankfully. The river level is up but not near flood stage.

I have not been on that boat, but I had friends that had a wedding reception on it so I really cant comment on that.

With all of the snowpack and rain runoff, they expect the Missouri River to be at a high level several more months.

June 6 > the Missouri River is rising and there are problems all along its length with sandbagging operations in low lying areas. If you have any plans on or near the Missouri river for the next few weeks best to call ahead and confirm that they are still available.

The riverboat casinos on the Iowa side across from Omaha have not been impacted a lot yet but again - you may want to call ahead if your plans involve them in the near future.

They expect Hamburg, IA to be flooded until December which means everything else along the Missouri River will also be flooded.

I have been on this river cruise and in my opinion the food was mediocre. The boat itself is quaint but for the price I would not choose to do it again.

The river boat dinner cruise is suspended due to flooding. The coast guard has banned all river travel.
