Disappointing weather, but that did not affect our experience (other than my leather purse being saturated from being on the floor). We have been on a number of city cruises before and enjoyed them. This staff was rather unwelcoming. Food was very disappointing - mostly...More

Enjoyable cruise with good food. Milwaukee's river front and lake front are growing and changing all the time. A very nice way to spend an evening. Go with a group so you know the people you are seated with.

Went on this boat tour while in Milwaukee. Was nice and relaxing. Learned some of the history of Milwaukee. Boat had drinks available. Out in the lake you get a great view of the city. Love doing activities like this to learn a little history.

The cruise itself is nice, but the promise of "Price includes unlimited Milwaukee microbrew" as stated on their website is simply not true. You're also in a boat that's 90% covered with very little outdoor space, so you're basically in a mobile bar. They start...More
