We took the new Margaritas on The Mississippi cruise they offer this summer on Wednesdays and Thursdays. 2 margaritas (we had a choice of lemon or strawberry) and the taco bar came with our trip, as well as complimentary nachos and salsa to munch on while waiting for the taco bar to open (when the cruise starts).
It was a pleasant ride up and down the river all the way to Fort Snelling, but there was no narration during the ride, so you'll have to follow the scenery on your own. I'm told the narration comes with the other tours. There were very few passengers, I'm guessing we were less than 50, so we felt as if we had the cruise to ourselves. We stayed on the upstairs deck most of the time, which was open-air and very pleasant. A great way to take in nature around the river and enjoy the cold air.
Taco bar ingredients were full and the margaritas tasted great too. Staff attendants are young and personable. Go with good company on this trip. Make time too to walk around the park around the Padleford Landing and even walk across the bridge to the other side of the river. Great for photo ops and bonding time.
