The view of the city and the river from the deck of the Detroit Princess Riverboat is beautiful and breathtaking. During the 2.5 hour trip, you can relax, eat, listen to live music and enjoy the view. What’s best that you are not obliged to buy a meal to take part on the cruise, however there are appetizers and food served at lunch and dinner and if you’re hungry you can eat. The staff is courteous, and helpful, the whole atmosphere of the deck is warm and engaging.

Detroit River is one of the busiest waterways of North America and you can really experience this if you take part on a cruise where just looking of the window or from the upper deck you can see fishing boats, pleasure boats and other trade boats going on their own routes, providing sometimes a busy traffic sight.

Address:
20 Atwater St, Detroit, MI 48226, USA

Price:
Prices vary on cruise choices.

How to get there:
The Princess Riverboat sails from the Civic Center in downtown Detroit, adjacent to Hart Plaza and Cobo Hall.
