Overview
This Nashville lunch or dinner cruise combines live entertainment, a 3-course Southern-style meal, and beautiful views of the Cumberland River for a reasonable price, so you can get more sightseeing and entertainment for less. Plus, this Nashville cruise on one of the country’s largest paddle-wheel boats includes hotel pickup and drop-off, making it even more appealing for travelers.
Highlights
  • Ride one of the largest paddle-wheel boats in the US for this river cruise
  • Take in Nashville's Cumberland River scenery from an indoor or outdoor deck
  • Watch a show with live comedy and music in the boat’s Victorian theater
  • Choose from a 3-course Southern-style lunch or dinner
What to Expect
Your Nashville cruise starts with hotel pickup. From there, your driver takes you to meet your crew for the day or evening. Once you get to the Cumberland River and board the General Jackson Showboat, enjoy views of the river from either the indoor or outdoor deck. There's plenty of space on this ship to wander around before your meal is served.   This historically recreated paddle boat also features a Victorian theater where you can head to eat your Southern, 3-course meal (see Itinerary section for a sample menu). While you eat, enjoy a live show with music and comedy acts. The dinner show includes a live orchestra and talented dancers.  Your Cumberland River cruise ends with a hotel drop-off at your Nashville hotel.

Purchased tickets for 8 for planned trip to Nashville in June 2020. Unfortunately, we had to cancel because of change to travel plans. Customer service was excellent and refund was processed same day. Hope to reschedule trip and will definitely be re-booking.

Things went great. We really had a great time at the event and it was epic. Loved the music and band. I would definitely go again. Did take awhile to get our drinks we offered but that was probably because everyone wanted to get tipsy before the event started. The tour guide

This was a wonderful time and the country music show was fabulous - especially the fiddlers and their rendition of Devil Went Down to Georgia. The food was great, and it was fun seeing all the sights along the river in Nashville .

The Elvis show at Christmas is great. Only one night but worth it. Each year, the dinner has been slightly different. This year, they decided to do buffet style. We were at the Captain's tables and while these tables were supposed to go first, the food tables were at the far end

We’re glad that you enjoyed the tour and the show, but we wished you had a better overall experience. We wanted to let you know, however, that we did not run a shuttle to the General Jackson Showboat on this date.
