DETROIT -- Me and my husband had a wonderful experience on the Detroit Princess Cruise. Built in 1992 and operating as a casino on the Mississippi River, it made its journey through the Gulf of Mexico, around Key West, up the Atlantic coast into the St. Lawrence Seaway and down to its new home in downtown Detroit. Docked at the waterfront behind Cobo Arena, this cruise offers various cruise options to suit your taste.

The schedule offers lunch, dinner and moonlight cruises. They have a murder mystery dinner, Motown dinner cruises, a Margaritaville Sunset Cruise with Jimmy Buffet songs and for their lunch cruises, they have Dixieland Jazz as their entertainment.

We went on the Sunday afternoon Motown dinner cruise. Everyone started boarding at 2:15 p.m. There are four decks total with the second deck being the dinner buffet. This deck seats 450 guests. There was a cash bar and a musical revue of Motown hits performed by the Prolifics.

We check out every deck. The third deck had chairs and tables everywhere for viewing the beautiful Detroit and Windsor skylines. The fourth deck was the Captain's deck. You can see his instrumentation and captain's wheel as he guided us up the Detroit River past Belle Isle and back.

The dinner buffet was fabulous. The meal started with a salad, potato salad, noodle salad, cole slaw and rolls. As you worked your way down the buffet line, there was chicken piccata, crab-stuffed salmon, cheese tortellini, wild rice, fresh vegetables, vegetarian lasagna, garlic herbed mashed potatoes and a chef carving prime rib of beef. Coffee, iced tea and water was also provided. Dessert consisted of brownies and cookies. Everything tasted wonderful.

The entertainment was fantastic. The Prolifics sounded just like the real Motown artists and their lime-green suits matched accordingly. There is a huge dance floor with beautiful chandeliers overhead.

We had the best time and would do it again in a heartbeat. I would recommend this cruise highly. The boat is heated and air conditioned for year round operation.

The Detroit Princess is also available for any occasion such as family reunions, weddings, birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, retirement parties, proms and even Christmas parties. They can accommodate up to 1500 people. I am looking forward to my next cruise.

OVERALL RATING: A+
