Nice old style boat ride out and around Muskegon Lake (you do not go out into Lake Michigan) and the music for dancing is a nice touch. Very relaxing with GREAT sunset pictures. The food was not very good for the price of tickets and the drinks you buy are very watered down with lots of ice.

We were in town for 5 days and the boat didn't sail due to lack of reservations. By late June you would think they'd be busy. After 3 phone calls for reservations not returned, we headed to the dock and there was no one there at the ticket booth. Don't know how they can sell tickets when no one is... More

What can I say? We chose this for a friend's bachelorette party and I wish we hadn't. When I called to make the reservations I was told there was going to be a DJ and dinner would be chicken. There was NO DJ, just CDS to chose from on our own. The dinner was frozen breaded chicken cutlets from meijer,... More

My family takes the Port City Princess cruise every summer that we spend in lower Michigan. It's a gorgeous trip out onto the water and a great way to spend an afternoon or evening, sailing along the Muskegon shoreline and out onto Lake Michigan (conditions allowing). The boat plays music and serves food & drinks (both alcoholic and non-), and... More

Our first booking was cancelled the day of our planned outing - we had almost left the house when we got the call - we had been the only 3 people to book - it seems like we could have gotten a little more forewarning since we were the only 3...Then the following month when we did go, the boat...

Had not been on the ship in years but decided to take another trip. The staff is nice, the vessel is clean, sturdy and easy to find and board. The trip went as planned and the water was rather smooth so there was no wave motion to speak of. The food served was OK, plenty of places to sit and... More

I dont consider myself a big fan of boats and being on the water but I had never been in Michigan before and it seemed the thing to do.

We took a ride on this vessel for its evening cruise out into Lake Michigan. The narration of our trip was quite informative. Don't go for the food on the boat, just enjoy the ride and the sights. The vistas from the boat were what you might expect - coastline; but then out on Lake Michigan the waves got fairly... More
