The crew was fantastic; food was good; drinks were delicious; scenery was beautiful. I very much recommend taking a Blue Moon cruise. My family and I went on one this past June. I've been meaning to write this review since then and the experience was memorable enough to finally follow through. Thank you, Blue Moon Cruises, for a great time.

Went here the first night of our honeymoon...we loved it. My husband enjoyed listening to the captain speak about the Tennessee River, he was like a walking and talking encyclopedia. The food was nice. We lucked up and went when there were only two other groups of people on the tour. We enjoyed it and will return! Also, the crew... More

The cruise was a wonderful experience. Both fun and interesting. The crew was friendly and the captain was very knowledgeable of the history and geography of the river. The BBQ buffet was tasty. The craft was immaculate, offered seating inside and on the upper deck. I have lived in this area all my life so I am very familiar with... More

My best friend and her husband recommended the river cruise in Chattanooga and we made it a point to try it. The crew at Blue Moon were big fun and very friendly. The cruise is very relaxing and we will be back in the fall to do it again.

Easy to relax on this boat with comfy chairs and tables around the decks not too close together. The full bar and roomy bathrooms were a bonus as well. Our staff was super personable and provided fun and interesting information throughout the cruise. I'm going back to see the Fall colors with my parents in 2 months....can't wait! Thanks Blue...

I have to say that I love going on a boat ride. So this was right up my alley. We took the 4pm cruise which was nice because the breeze from the river cut the heat of the day. My husband, daughter and I were the only ones on the top deck. Everyone else was down below in the air... More

My wife and I had a great time. The weather was perfect and the crew was wonderful. They even let me steer the ship for a few moments - lots of fun. The bar service was fast and the BBQ buffet was very tasty. We would definitely do this again.

I took my 18 yr. old grandson on this tour 7/26/14. This was not a good choice for either of us. The boat moves very very slowly down the TN river. There is not much to see on this ride. There were cement/gravel companies, a few houses, an egret nest without the bird present. The TV's on board were not... More

Took my girlfriend out for our 2 year anniversary for something different than just dinner and a movie. She absolutely loved it! Dinner wasn't really anything special but sitting on the top deck was romantic as there wasn't many people so we had the whole deck to ourselves as the sun began to set. A little pricey but it was...
