This was the best by far. We were seated at table #2 which was right by the corner of the stage. We got to see the entire show without anyone being in front of us and it was great. The entertainment was great and the dinner was fantastic. This was a special trip for my nephew who has been in a wheel chair since birth. He is now 42 years old and this was his first visit to tennessee. I wanted to do something special for him while we were there since his parents gave him the trip as a christmas present. I could not have asked for a better time nor could he. It was a surprise up until 10 minutes before we pulled into the parking lot. He had no clue what we were doing. So from the mongeau and labare family, thank you for making that day special for him.

The general jackson cruise at christmas has been a family tradition for the last several years. We are hoping to be there again this year. I love to see the glow on my daughter's face when we board the boat. We have never left the boat without the christmas love and full bellies from the show. The food is always wonderful and my two grandsons are always ready to eat. Would recommend this experience to all and hope that it will become your family tradition.

The entire staff was very friendly & professional. The food, especially the prime rib, was very good. The service was fast & everything ran as smooth as possible. When the show started after dinner it was non-stop entertainment. Show included singing, dancing and numerous costume changes. The show was outstanding all of the performers are very talented. A must see in nashville.
