A little trouble printing tickets/ it would be nice if it could be emailed to company and they just look up. But all said it was a wonderful time. Nice lunch and very glad trip was two hours long!!!

Take sun screen. Also the meal was good, but the dessert was a thumbs down. For the price even with groupon, they could have made a pan of brownies and it would have been much better. Whatever it was was really gross:(

My only complaint was the drink I purchased at the bar. (Brandy & Water) The brandy was terrible. (rot gut) I don't know if it was some super cheap stuff or very-very old but I wouldn't have drank another one if they paid me to. Other than that the boat ride was very enjoyable

We had a great time seeing the Fall tree colors and learning a bit about the river history.

The onboard lunch was outstanding and very reasonable. The person narrating was a little overboard (pun not intended). Spoke too fast and in a very dramatic fashion. Was annoying.

From Our Editors

Decorative smokestacks stretch toward the sky as Victorian red and gold decor surrounds passengers nibbling brunch in a dining salon. This scene unfolds aboard the Spirit of Dubuque, an authentic-looking paddleboat that pays homage to the century-old steamboats of the Mississippi River. Dubuque River Rides' signature vessel, it has played host to thousands of cruises filled with entertainment, meals, and improvised renditions of "Old Man River" since being christened by Iowa governor Robert Ray in 1977. Elsewhere on the river, a more modern boat cuts across the water, casting a sleek outline against the sky. The 80-foot yacht, affectionately called Miss Dubuque, sets an intimate stage for events that range from weddings to Huckleberry Finn's notorious dinner parties.

Both boats call the northern expanse of the Mississippi River their home, sharing the area with wildlife such as turtles and bald eagles. The sightseeing vessels also pass by river barges and historic structures such as the Chicago Central Pacific Railroad Bridge, which was built after the president invented Lincoln Logs in 1868. After boats return to the docks, their passengers can head over to the floating barge that houses the Ice Harbor Restaurant.
