The cruise was smooth and the narration was good, but difficult to hear in all parts of the ship. Perhaps you need more speakers.

If the temperature hadn't have been over 100 degrees, it would have been perfect! But my family and I did t enjoy the short trip - it was worth $10 - not much more as it was too short and too hot.

Sad to say, we did not get to have the cruise. There was other events that were going on in Old Sac, the Rivercats were playing and evidently other things. There was no parking available within a walkable distance, so we lost our chance to use...continued

Disappointing. Boat did not have air conditioning and sound quality for tour was poor. River was nice and had some interesting views. Staff was friendly.

Easy to find the ticket booth , where we exchanged our Goldstar ticket for our official hornblower tickets. Great narrative trip, and we were able to see things you don't see from the road. Nice leisurely trip down the Delta. Definitely worth...continued

The river cruise itself was a very nice way to spend a relaxing hour. However, the boarding process was inexcusable. We purchased our goldstar tickets, received confirmation, downloaded the goldstar app, and printed our tickets and confirmation -...

I really enjoyed this outing. The weather was perfect! We boarded and went straight to the snack bar. Decent selections of offerings; hot dogs, chips, nuts, beer, wine, sodas, coffee, hot chocolate. We took a spot on the second level front...continued

The cruise was fun. The narator had a lot of info I was not aware of, even though we have lived in the area many years.

Fun short cruise on the river. Being a resident of Sacramento most of my life I thought it'd be fun to be tourists for the day. Actually learned some stuff about the river and Old Sac that I didn't know. Had I not gotten comp tickets I think I...continued

This was such a wonderful cruise. We enjoyed every minute of it. We would reccommend this tour for everyone. We went out to dinner afterwards and walked through Old Town. It was a great day.

This was a great way to experience the river in Sacramento, see the city from the river, and get a brief history of things on the river. It was a comfortable ride both inside the lower or upper floors at tables and chairs or standing outside.

Reasonably priced cocktails and hot dogs plus informative history of Sacramento along the river... And you get to see Sacramento from a different perspective. Certainly could not complain about the low cruise price through Goldstar.

We were lucky to have gone on a day when it was not HOT and the boat was not crowded. We very much enjoyed the cruise, the historical narrative, and the delicious cocktails that were available on board.
