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!

This is one of the funnest trips we have ever taken. I hope to do it again this year!

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!
