“A wonderful night on the river! We went on the cruise for my Dad's 50th birthday and Grandmother's 90th. We could not have asked for a better night. The staff were helpful and courteous, the food was good and the views from the river were wonderful!”

A special night out

“An easy way to enjoy Christmas! No one had to slave for days cooking in the December heat. It was lovely rolling along the river with the nice breeze and changing view of the River City. Buffet food was tasty, varied and the desserts were particularly yummy!"
