    If you are looking for a truly unique way to spend an evening, this Dinner & Show Riverboat Cruise is truly a night to remember. Whether you are a local or a visitor, this cruise has the perfect mix of scenery, local history, and live entertainment.

    Your evening will begin with an approximately 1-hour cruise down the New River, known as the "Venice of America." Along the way, your captain will teach you about the rich cultural history of the area while you observe from the open-air decks of the riverboat. Visit the on-board bar and enjoy a cocktail as you take in views of Millionaire's Row.

    Before you know it, the boat will be docking at the private tropical island where you will have an opportunity to explore and enjoy the lush foliage and exotic creatures. Next, you'll be seated to dinner where you will enjoy a family-style BBQ feast while enjoying the sounds of a live piano player. This delicious meal is all-you-can-eat, so don't hold back! Coffee and tea are included, but additional beverages are available for purchase.

    After dinner, you and your group will make your way over to the open-air theater and find your seat under the stars! The vaudeville-style variety show will last approximately 1 hour and is laugh-out-loud funny! You will be having so much fun, you won't want this night to end!

    After the show, it will be time to make your way back to the boat and cruise back to the dock under the stars. In all, the experience will last about 4 hours and will be an evening you will never forget!

    This was a fabulous tour. Cruise was awesome! Food was great. All you can eat. Shrimp, bbq chicken, ribs, coleslaw, beans, home fries and rolls. They bring you to private island which is very tropical. They seat 300 people all at the same time. Incredible service! Highly Recommend. Alligators, monkeys, birds in cages.

    Thanks for writing in. Can't beat a great night of entertainment and great food. Love to hear it!  Best, ​Brooke
    Great
    Best place and crew ever!!! The food is delicious, the music and the show are great. I enjoyed so much the tour!! My only advice, the picture they take when you are boarding, they say it is included, but it is not; at the end you have to pay 20$ if you want it. But I loved the pic so I bought it. Very nice and lovely tour!!!

    We went on the jungle queen a couple of years ago for a day cruise and it was good. This cruise was awesome the island had been done over and the food was great. Would go again worth the money.

    Hey Deborah, Thanks for writing in about your experience! How nice to now have experienced both their day cruise and evening dinner cruise. Sounds like a great time!  Let us know when you're ready to get back out on the water. Have a great day!  Best, Brooke
    The experience from the booking process to the boat ride, food, and entertainment was awesome! Everyone was very friendly, and the captain did an excellent job making the boat ride memorable. My family and I really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you Cloud 9 Living.
    There were good and not so good things about the experience. There was no record of my booking when we arrived, but the lady at the ticket counter was able to retrieve the information. The trip down was informative and interesting, and the food was generous and fairly tasty. It was raining, so the entertainment was held indoors, and was not very good. The narrator on the trip down was quite entertaining and reasonably informative. Overall this was a pleasant experience, but not particularly memorable.
    Chelsea from Cloud 9 was extremely helpful to book date and adding additional couple fir us. She also mad sure I received confirmation from.venue.We had a very enjoyable evening!
