It seemed to be just an average showboat, meaning it just did not get me excited. The food was chicken patties or pulled pork, some vegetables, and a starch, only one choice for dessert, so you were stuck just eating that. The music show they...More

There you are, floating down the Cumberland River on a paddle-wheeler. An excellent 6 course dinner, followed by the "Nashville Nights"., a one hour show with a lot of people who can spell "Country Music". Just outstanding and a lot of fun.

Went on there with parents and grandmother. Father threw up the food. They use too much salt. The music was alright. I ate better at Taco Bell.

Well worth going. The show was songs from Tennesee and later the two guys sang their own songs upstairs in the bar. The boat paddles up river and back. I loved it. The food (lunch) was just mediocre and cold.

We are interested in the lunch cruise. We are vegetarian. Are there other options besides meat on the buffet?

Sorry we went on the dinner cruise in May and it was not a buffet. The night cruise was beautiful because you see the city lights at night!

If we just purchase the Outer Deck tickets that do not include dinner, will we have any other food options? We don't think we'll be hungry for a full dinner, but might want something with our cocktails. Thanks!
