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!

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)

Hey folks!
So, we've had a bit of confusion lately about where we are located. Many people see our advertisements for Mississippi River Cruises and think we are in the south. As much as we'd love to see that part of the river ourselves, we are actually located in Iowa and our tours run on the Mississippi River.
This map shows you the three places that our cruises stop at. I hope this helps and we will be sure to make it clearer on our marketing tools in the future.
See you on the river!
