It was disappointing. We did this cruise 2 yrs ago, had a blast. This time there were A LOT of kids running around. No dance music just a guy playing a guitar. Dining area was so hot. Staff was very nice. Food was ok, little cold. We will not be doing the cruise again.

We had a great time on the dinner cruise. The boat was nice, the food was good, the drinks were good, and the entertainment was good. The three hour cruise allows ample time to eat and drink, and then to dance on the dance floor. We will book another cruise sometime in the future.

Atmosphere was ok, the food needs improvement and better quality for the price Rigatoni, salad,and chocolate store bought cake. High price beer and mixed drinks $7.00 and up. Took 40 minutes to dock and tie down. Need men docking the boat not the waitress!!! Great singer!! for the entertainment and the ride was very nice and relaxing 😊

Having taken several dinner cruises in other places we did not expect a lot, however, the food was surprisingly good. Before dinner the entertainment was not much to listen to, but after dinner I guess everyone loosened up as well as the entertainment and played requested music and there was some dancing. We met several couples and enjoyed visiting. We really enjoyed ourselves. The only unpleasant surprise was when we called for our reservation. There is an additional charge for tax (never had to pay that on a Groupon before) and for the tip. It was just unexpected, but we always pay a good gratuity anywhere so that was alright. We would do it again just for something different to do.

From Our Editors

Floating across the surface of Lake Conroe, the Southern Empress might as well be drifting back in time. The ship perfectly resembles a nineteenth-century sternwheeler riverboat, with two 18-foot paddles churning the water behind it. Inside the three sprawling decks, chandeliers gleam against embossed tin ceilings, and accents of brass and velour flaunt the same Victorian style as the floral carpets.

The boat does boast some modern amenities, however—two of its decks are climate-controlled, which means that its signature cruises can run year-round instead of stopping during iceberg-mating season. They can also head outside to the split-level third deck, which affords the best view of the lake and surrounding forest. Hosts for special engagements, such as weddings or corporate parties, can even reserve this scenery for themselves during private charters.
