Our tour on Twilight was superb.  On a scale 1 to 10, we give it an 11 or 12.  We were treated royally, The captain’s comments were interesting and informative.  The staff members were excellent, the food beautifully prepared and served. The visit in Dubuque was enlightening as well as fun, and the accommodations in the hotel were fantastic. We could not have hoped for a better anniversary experience.  Keep up your great work. – Bob and Esther Jones

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)
