Unless you travel by riverboat regularly you may never experience this type of adventure. The mystic of the paddle boat and the good spirit and customer service attitude of the staff made the dinner excursion an enjoyable experience for the eight of us. It would be nice if the trinket boutique was open for purchases after the cruise ended - as it was not we were not able to purchase any momentos to remind us of the great adventure and entertainment.
