About this activity
After pickup from your Nashville hotel, board the General Jackson Showboat, one of the largest paddle-wheel boats in the country, and travel down the Cumberland River. This grand vessel was designed to recreate the showboats that plied the waters of American rivers in the 19th century.

Admire views of the Nashville landscape as you relax on the indoor or outdoor decks. In the beautiful Victorian theater on board, you’ll feast on a traditional Southern meal. For sample lunch and dinner menus, see the Itinerary section below.

You’ll then be treated to live entertainment! On the lunch cruise, enjoy a comedy production full of classic Southern humor. On the dinner cruise, enjoy a live orchestra accompanied by a dynamic cast of dancers in elaborate costumes.

After your cruise, you'll be taken back to your hotel.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the showboat lunch tour! We were in Nashville to celebrate the USS Hubbard Naval Reunion with our Dad. The food was very good and our server was terrific. The show was quite enjoyable, with some updated music.The bus service to and from our hotel was terrific!

I believe they should have asked for your age and sat u according to people your age. I was so but I sat with 3 other couple. One couple didn’t even look or speak directly to me. Not very nice.

We took the dinner cruise and it was absolutley amazing. We will do it again next time we visit. Everything about the cruise was amazing. Our bus ride however was the worst ever. Our driver was horrible. Liked to brag about his 20 yrs of experience, but he almost side swiped a semi on our way back and it took three hours to get back to our motel because there was a concert downtown which he should have been aware of and we were stuck in tafficfor forever. I would highly reccomend taking an uber and skipping the bus service which was part of our package.

The showboat was beautiful and the people who work there are very helpful.. The buffet was delicious and the entertainment is very professional. They are very good at what they do. They even supply the wheelchairs for the disabled and help them on board .We went on our 25th. anniversary and they took professional pictures of us in front of the showboat. What a beautiful memory we will have for the rest of our lives... Thank you all, very much.

I am both disabled and gluten free and the boat catered for both. Wheelchair access is easy and by ramp or lift to everything except the shop where there is a very small bump, so I avoided there. Food could be easily altered for gluten free especially as main is a buffet. Meal served prior to show and was held in same area. Show was excellent going through a variety of artists and different country styles

The pre dinner show was great as was the main event. The food was tasty but they ran out of rare and medium rare meat so my husband missed out, as he went to get a drink for me and by the time he was done, the meat was all gone! The service was ok but solicited tips before we had a chance to tip which I tend to resent.

Thoroughly enjoyed our trip on the General Jackson. Great music and great food. Only problem was that it wasn’t long since we had breakfast and food was served as soon as you went on board, so recommend you don’t have breakfast or have a very light breakfast if you are going on the noon sailing. It is self service, you can help yourself and it was excellent.

Absolutely fabulous trip, with excellent food and entertainment. Not to be missed! We were looked after as soon as we walked towards the boat, shown to our tables and offered the facilities. The Entertainment both below deck and above was superb, with top class musicians and singers. One of the highlights of our trip to Nashville.

The food was average. When I book it was my understanding there would be ham on the buffet, but no. I was not a fan of any of the meats. The baked beans were great and the apple cobbler was very good. The entertainment was extremely good.

This dinner cruise left and returned on time. The food and beverages were delicious. The dinner show was quite entertaining. Since we did the dinner cruise we couldn't see as much of the scenery as we would have liked due to darkness. The dinner was delicious and the staff was quite courteous and prompt. Overall it was avery enjoyable evening.

Wonderful show and great service. Just the right length of time with enough free time to explore. The food was very good, and we had interesting conversation with our table mates.

The show was foot stumping and the food was great. If you leave hungry, it's your own fault. But be prepared for it to be hot and humid in July.

Food was hot and very good, especially the pulled pork. We were too far away for them to pick us up at hotel, there should be a discount for that.
