Itinerary

Meet about 30 to 60 minutes before your cruise time to exchange your voucher at the Savannah Riverboat Ticket Office at 9 East River Street.

There are multiple cruise options on the Savannah River Queen available. Depending on your choice, you will embark on a lunch cruise, brunch cruise, dinner cruise, sunset cruise, sightseeing cruise, party cruise, or gospel cruise.

Once boarded, choose your seat, either heading indoors to the climate-controlled dining and observation deck, or outdoors to the upper deck for sunbathing. On most tours, you’ll hear city history and fun facts about Savannah as you float and take in the sights, although a few tours do not include narration.

Iced tea, lemonade, soft drinks, or coffee are included with all dining cruises, and some cruises feature live entertainment. All cruises include an open bar.

Your boat returns to the original departure point at the end of your cruise.

Lunch on the River Good

If you've dined on a riverboat before, you know what this is. Lunch was pretty good, fried chicken very good. Narration was well done. Overall, an afternoon well spent.

"Underwelmed"

What a disappointment, make believe paddle steamer, really? Took us on an uninteresting tour of the local industry on the banks of the river, not much more we can say. The lunch "buffet" was unremarkable. This is not what we looked forward to.

We prepaid for our tickets but we still had to stop at the office for boarding passes. It's right across from the boat. No problem.
