    Not worth the money

    When you think Steamboat, you think charm. This vessel has none of that. The cruise part consists looking only out the left side of the boat amidst a cacophony of metal chairs being dragged across the metal decks. The cruise was overpacked and bar service strained. The optional dinner part meant you had to line up well in advance of the seating and seating was crowed and loud. The lights flicker on and off in the dining room, which made the old boat seem that much sketchier. The food was fine, and the staff did a good job cycling people through the buffet line but for the price, you can find a better meal almost anywhere. If you are traveling with some one with special physical challenges this is not the place for them. The boat felt like it was listing to the right.

    It appears you joined us on a very busy day. There is a lot going on when you have visitors on steamboat. All services are available for guest with mobility issues including restrooms, food and beverage all on the main deck of the boat where you board. With notice when making a reservation we can also make sure that the seating area for you accommodates wheelchairs etc.

    Wonderful cruise, jazz band and dinner

    My mom and I enjoyed this boat ride. We chose the evening dinner cruise and were treated to a lovely sunset. The jazz band was excellent. We had the second seating for the dinner buffet. Food was excellent and they managed the line well, calling up sections at a time to get the food so no one waited on line too long. They also had a tossed salad on the table to enjoy while we were waiting. My mom was celebrating her birthday and she received a card at the table as well as a pink ribbon which covered the tablecloth, a very nice touch and she appreciated it. This activity is well worth your time and the dinner was excellent.
