“A Wonderful Thanksgiving Spent Aboard the Arkansas Queen!”

Arkansas Queen Riverboat Day Cruise
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 November 2012

Our family tremendously enjoyed a Thanksgiving cruise down the Arkansas river, aboard the Arkansas Queen. Their staff members were very friendly and helpful. They provided an assortment of traditional Thanksgiving food, which were all delicious. The turkey was our favorite! We were still talking about it a week later.

The children and adults both took part in dancing to the live music after lunch. Our favorite part of the cruise was enjoying the fall foilage, along the banks of the river. We found many opportunities to take photos with the river and foilage in the background. We will remember for years to come this unique way that we shared Thanksgiving!

We went on the lunch cruise, and had a very enjoyable time! The staff and crew were very friendly and helpful. Lunch was simple but yummy (two kinds of barbecue, potato salad, coleslaw, giant oatmeal raisin cookie, iced tea and water). The tour lasts for about 90 minutes, during which you are paddled up and down a stretch of the Arkansas River. Have a meal, enjoy the sights, chat with the other passengers, and absorb the experience!

I just went on an evening cruise on this boat. Here in the heart of America, where fresh vegetables can be purchased right cross the river at the farmers market, here in the heart of the growing season, the Arkansas Queen "chef" opens cans of corn and green beans and calls it dinner. I call it garbage. Tacky decorations, long lines for drinks and long delays in serving - They shoved our group of 100 into one tight space with another group while leaving the whole upper deck empty to minimize their efforts while squeezing us in like sardines. The music wasn't exactly great either. It is a beautiful cruise though, on the Arkansas River. I am glad the boat is there but the ownership is bad. The staff couldn't have been nicer and none of this is their fault.

Enjoyed the Arkansas Queen on a beautiful night! Very pleasant to sit outside and enjoy the evening. Bar was well equipped and staff helpful. Dinner was standard buffet fare - good have been better!

The food was great and so was the scenery, and there was plenty for the kids to do, they even played bingo and won captain hats.
