We were picked and given a few facts about Tennessee by the bus driver. Excellent. The cruise was great I enjoyed the show and everyone was so friendly. The only draw back was the dinner salad had romaine lettuce and dressing was limited. Everything else was great. Also some of us had problems breathing with long walk on the ramp.

We were not sure what to expect but of everything I did in Nashville this was the one event that delivered. I give this activity at 10 out of 10. The boat is beautiful, the staff was courteous and helpful, The food was absolutely delicious and the entertainment was amazing. I’m not sure how they could’ve made it much better than they did. I would go back and do it again the next time I’m in town. If you get the opportunity to experience this don’t hesitate. A personal shout out to that female fiddle player. She was absolutely amazing.

The show and dinner was excellent. Went with my husband, his brother and wife. Everyone thought it was great. Boat, food and entertainment. Our server, even though had quite a few tables was always available and we never had to wait for drinks or look for her. Would and have told others about the experience.
