    The cruise was fun and an interesting and pleasurable way to spend an evening. The food was good, although this was a business thing with a buffet. The stage show was lacking though.

    Seems like a really touristy thing but the views from the river were nice.

    Fun cruise up and down the Tennessee River. Gospel music show on Sundays. I heard the food is pretty good. They have unlimited mimosa & bloody Mary packet :-)

    The food is great! Make sure you get in early... Seats up top are limited.

    Gorgeous view of downtown if you do a night cruise! The food and show were nice also.

    A total tourist trap! I suppose if I were white trash, really old, or a country bumpkin I could have enjoyed it!

    Do the $6 tour. You get on early and get your picture taken in the actual Captain's hat!

    A Nashville icon with highly professional production/live entertainment and fun cruise on Cumberland. Best time to go is at night and head out on deck to watch Nashville skyline and neon in cool breez
