We spent an enjoyable couple of hours on the Celebration Belle for a narrated lunch tour. Everything went smoothly; embarkation, buffet lunch, narrated sightseeing, and debarkation. There is plenty of parking right on the Moline riverfront. Lunch was a satisfying selection of turkey, pasta, salads, vegetables and dessert. The highlight for me was sitting outside on the top deck while the captain pointed out the local sights and told a bit of the history about Arsenal Island, the lock and dam, swing bridge, and the relation between the first bridge over the Mississippi and the railroads, steamships, and the 16th president of the United States.
I am a local, but anyone traveling on I-80 with a few hours to spare could take a cruise. The boat docks just upstream from I-74. Exit through the gift shop.
