    Fantastic entertainment on stage and outside on top deck! . Staff was excellent and very attentive, food was delicious and lots of it, very tasty and a nice selection of Southern cuisine. We met so many wonderful and interesting people from all over the world on this cruise and made some great memories! Enjoyed everything about this cruise and to the courteous shuttle drivers to and from our hotels. Thank you for a great experience!

    The food and performers were at. The cruise itself was a 1. There's just nothing to see along the river.

    The General Jackson Lunch Cruise was very good I would recommend this cruise to everyone that visit Nashville.

    Food was delicious, views were fabulous and entertainment was excellent. Staff were very friendly.
    Alcoholic beverages were very pricey.
    Alcoholic beverage should be included in the price of ticket.

    Way too many people hurdled in the main floor. It would be disastrous should something happen.
    Food was so, so. Entertainment was great, especially David and Bob.

    Very efficient boarding procedure, and the actual river boat was spectacular. The show... a mixture of R and B, Country and Western and 'Rockabilly' was pure Nashville sound... Really good. The food service was efficient, and the food OK... so overall a really worthwhile thing too do in Nashville.

    Luncheon cruise is not worth the money.
    Drinks on the boat are very expensive. Buffet lunch was cold! Show was just OK.
    No dancing just singers.Overall it was dissapointing.

    This is the first dinner cruise that I have had to cue up for my meal and I have been on a lot. The food was disgusting. The starter was a pile of salad leaves,The beef and the pork was both raw and a slither of cheesecake for dessert. On a positive note the after show was very good.
