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 musical and comedy acts.

Your Cumberland River cruise ends with a hotel drop-off at your Nashville hotel.
