My mom and I did the fireworks cruise. It departed at 8:30pm and was over around 10:30pm. We sat on the top deck. It was great. I don't think it is appropriate for kids or at least not the top level. The dancing was pretty R rated and people were really intoxicated. We had a great time and haven't laughed... More

This was our first experience on the Harriott River Cruise and will be our last. We signed up for an educational cruise that was supposed to be for homeschooling families only. Unfortunately, the other group out of Jasper canceled. The cruise people were nice enough to let us keep our reservation even though we were about 20 people short of... More

My lady friend and I spent the evening of February 14, 2016 on the Harriet II Riverboat. Our night starting good, until we receive our meal.The surf and turf meal was unsatisfactory. The meal was super cold and the sirloin steak was tough as black licorice. The server we had was very inattentive during the course of the evening. The... More

We took a group from work here for our Christmas party. The boat itself is in pretty good shape. I love the overall look. The food was okay but the service was good. It was also super hot in there with the heat on! Had to walk out on deck in the cold to try and stay even! The best... More

I was really looking forward to riding the Harriott II Riverboat ( It is Harriott, not Harriett) and enjoying lunch. We were served a boxed lunch that included a turkey wrap, bag of chips, apple wedges, and a small serving of pasta salad. We were also provided our choice of tea, lemonade, or coffee. The servers worked quickly to distribute... More

The dinner cruise leaves after sunset so there is no view at all except for one spot where there is a neon sign that says "Get sauced" Someone there set off a firework as the boat passed. The food while plentiful was poor quality. The drinks were ok. The musician saved the experience. He was talented and engaging.

The name of the boat is the HARRIOTT, not the HARRIET, which is probably why I could not find it listed after searching, which was odd since this is such a big attraction here in Montgomery. Hopefully, this will be updated/corrected on the listing. Tried to report it but having technical problem. Anyway...... I enjoyed myself immensely aboard the HARRIOTT... More

If you are looking for a different night out this can be a fun relaxing dinner cruise. More upbeat party ship, or watch fireworks away from crowds. The price of things for sale is not ridiculous. You sorta just do a figure 8 on the river though so to some can be seen as dull. I recommend at least going... More
