This 2 days trip on the Twilight was one of the most relaxing short vacations I have ever had. I would go again in a heartbeat! The entertainment is fun, the calliopy echoing off the rocks near Dubuque sooo neat, and the food prepared on-board is amazing!

Thank you to everyone on the Twilight Riverboat for a wonderful Mississippi experience! From the gracious hospitality of your staff and crew, to the talent of your kitchen staff and the bartender – not to mention the beauty of the Twilight boat; it just couldn’t be beat!
Susan Beckman

If you want to cruise on the Mississippi, I highly recommend the Twilight. They feed you all day with a wonderful breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus snacks, entertainment and Captain’s commentary . It is truly interesting to learn about this great river. The Captain and Crew are friendly, helpful, and super fun!  ~ Carol B (St. Louis)
