Great way to spend the evening. They did a great job setting up the food and the DJ. THE cruise was great and very relaxing. The food was very good. The fact that the DJ interacted with the people on board and played all kinds of music, really made for a good trip.

Franklin Lock Cruise. We have done this cruise a few times over the years, went again yesterday. It was the best ever! All crew members very attentive and professional. Everything about the trip was well organized, food was pretty good too. Each time we've gone the entertainment was different but yesterday was the best with Jerry Burton performing. Highly recommend this cruise.

Good time with neighborhood friends. Had a river cruise with a 100 neighbors and it was a great time. Food was very good, and the DJ was excellent. He not only played a variety of music he sang. He has a great voice. With the night time cruise you couldn’t see much but a good time was had by all

Wonderful way to spend Thanksgiving. Excellent food, turkey, dressing, salad, green beans, corn etc. But especially the beef tips. Staff was very courteous and friendly. DJ was fantastic - made it a fun and enjoyable trip despite the overcast sky
