I thought we all had a very good time. Teenagers took lots and lots of photos. This was really exciting cruise for them. They enjoyed hot dog and snacks on the boat. My husband and I thought it was a great value for the outing.

The ship left on time. The day happened to be sunny and beautiful; we were lucky I guess. Narration was audible and interesting without being too much. Get on board as soon as you can and get a seat on the starboard side.

The cruise would have been enjoyable if they hadn't packed as many people on the vessel. The exterior seating and bar arrangements were inadequate. Many people had to stand or sit in the poorly ventilated, enclosed area downstairs. However, if you can find a vantage...More

It's an interesting cruise, provides a different prospective on both Windsor and Detroit. Thought the narrative could be better, perhaps delve deeper into the history of both cities and the river. However, we enjoyed it very much. Tip, if you want a good seat on...More

We decided to take this 2-hr. cruise since we most likely wouldn't have time to visit all the places along the river during our stay. The cruise took us along the Detroit river along the Riverfront path and back up the other side along the...More

Since your River Cruise Line caters to various events including Weddings, I wonder about the size of your restroom facilities. Are the bathrooms airplane size or the size of a department store washroom?

I do think I read that you can book the boat for special occasions, but it would be best to call them directly.
