Jubilee Queen Cruise Lines' fleet of two-tiered river showboats slice through waves on tours that supplement scenic views with gourmet fare, a full bar, and live DJ sets. Running between 2.5 and 4 hours (along with time for boarding and disembarking), cruises depart from Toronto Music Gardens and point their prows toward the canals and waterways of the Toronto Islands. On board, Jubilee Queen Cruise Lines' executive chef whips up buffets and multi-course meals. During weekend dinner cruises, the Ports of Call Buffet weighs down plates with a medley of dishes including penne pasta marinara and rosemary roasted chicken. Aquaphiles can also opt for themed sojourns such as the Oktoberfest Cruise, during which guests enjoy a reprieve from high-maintenance jack-o'-lanterns as they dive into a feast of wiener schnitzel and beer-braised bratwurst.
After bolstering bellies at the dinner table, guests can ogle the city's skyline from the deck as the sun slam-dunks the horizon, or, on chilly nights, retreat to the heated cabins and warm tongues with toasty libations from the full bar. Meanwhile, a dance floor and live DJ keep feet pounding and submarine captains up past their bedtime.

Lovingly recreated to emulate the riverboats that paddled along Lake Ontario in years past, Jubilee Queen's eponymous ship first wet its hull in 1986. More than two decades' worth of rays have since bathed the sweeping sun deck, which sits above a dining room lined with linen-covered tables. In the galley, the Queen's chefs whip up dishes suitable for any event, from full-course meals to buffets peppered with international cuisine, all of which are prepared fresh in a fully equipped kitchen onboard. In the cabin, a fully stocked bar keep guests' sea legs limber as they dance to the tunes of a live DJ amid views of the Toronto skyline and the distant shadow of the lighthouse haunted by the spirits of burnt-out bulbs.
