Enjoy one hour cruises with commentary on river history, legends, and sights. This cruise features an open snack bar with sandwiches and beverages. There are also dinner cruises and Saturday Night Jazz Cruises.
Took the afternoon cruise on a chilly fall afternoon, and loved the scenery with all of the fall colors. Stayed up front for the first half (believe it when the captain says to cover your ears when they sound the horn for departure!!). Captain Terry keeps the passengers entertained with tales of the history of the river and the Hannibal area, many of them even true!! For the last half of the cruise, we retreated into the interior decks for the warmth and the comfortable tables and view. There is a bar on the lower deck, beer, wine, coffee, hot chocolate and popcorn were the hits on our cruise. Very reasonable prices compared to what I've come to expect in the DFW area.
We had a great time and hope to go again the next time we're back in the Hannibal area.
We visited this past summer 2007.
It was a super trip and we enjoyed the steamboat ride and one of the favorite things we did. It was absolutely spendid. We took our 3 grandchildren and they had a great time
We enjoyed this trip alot. It was fun getting aboard the boat and going on the river. You have alot of great picture to take ahead of you. We loved the pics the staff took of us before we got on board. Very nice ride and we will be going back for their 1 hour ride. Families would enjoy the ride.
My husband and I went to Hannibal for a weekend getaway. The riverboat cruise (afternoon) was one of the highlights of our trip. All the crew were wonderful and the captain very knowledgeable and funny. We sat all the way up top in the front. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We now wish we had taken the evening cruise.
Took the dinner cruise. Nice boat and views. Band was far to loud for small area and ambiance. Food was less than OK.
For a combined price of $40 for the two of us, the food was sub-par. Didn't know dinner was a buffet, or that it was one trip only. Only got salad to start, went back to get meal and was told it was a one-pass buffet. But they did let me go through because they remembered I only got salad.
There were leftovers but nobody was allowed to go back through. Beef and chicken were very dry, beef was tough as well. Dinner rolls appeared to be rationed because they actually had a person in the serving line placing one roll on a plate. Also, coffee was available (not at the buffet table) which we didn't know until after the dinner. When asked what you want to drink - water and tea are the only options. Soda drinks are available at the bar for $1.50 for 8 oz cup and 25 cents for refills.
Save your money and take the cruise but eat somewhere else.
it was very peacefull and the sceanery wow much better than the arch riverboat in st louis my mom is in a wheel chair and we got to sit outside on this cruise where we didnt in st louis the staff was very nice
In response to the person who complained about the diesel fumes--I work on another riverboat and there is NO way to get rid of or mask the diesel smell. My bet advice is to move somewhere else--like the front of the boat. The back of most riverboats is noisy because usually that is where the engines and generators are.
Please, just enjoy the scenery.
