Dear Brian and Staff,

Thank you again for your amazing service while we were on the American Lady!  It was above and beyond my expectations!  Everyone was full by the time we left!  They said the food was great!  The ride was amazing and I'm glad we went with you for our small wedding  Mike was great as well!  He kept it short and sweet like we wanted!  Your crew was great at asking if we needed anything.  Thank you for an amazing day!

Forever and always,

Dear Friends at American Lady Cruises,

Thank you for donating 5 boarding passes for the Lunch Cruise.  Our friend had a wonderful time with staff and family.  She was able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and a memorable day.  Organizations like yours are a big help to a non-profit and we thank you for your continued support!

I can not express how much I appreciate your generosity and support.  Thank you for allowing us to meet a goal for a wonderful lady with a terminal illness!  A great time was had by all!

Brian, thanks so much to you and your staff for such an amazing afternoon and evening on Saturday for my husband's 80th birthday celebration!!  The food was great and your staff was so accommodating to all of us.  All of my family was so impressed with everything!  The kids really enjoyed "driving" the boat!!  Some of us will definitely be back for another fun time on the Mississippi and American Lady.  Best wishes for a great summer!!

Yesterday my husband and I took your brunch cruise-what a beautiful day, and it was a pleasure to try your American Lady Cruise boat.

Besides the beautiful weather and wonderful boat was the pleasantry and kindness of your personnel...from the welcome when entering the boat to leaving the boat.  Then to my amazement, as I was in the parking lot walking to my car, one of your wonderful personnel stopped me to return my jacket I had accidentally left on the boat.  Her graciousness and that extra measure of kindness will always be remembered, and I will surely speak well of you all!  Thank your staff for making a beautiful day even extra special!

Thank you!

Thank you for the great cruise!  It was a nice fundraiser that we hope to continue in the future.  I also want to thank the staff for the wonderful job that they did with the children on board.  They truly enjoyed the tour and sitting up with the Captain.  I look forward to future cruises.

We, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post #9663, would like to extend our sincere appreciation for your generous support of our country's veterans and the men and women who are currently fighting the War on Terrorism to preserve the freedom we so dearly cherish.  It is people like you and your crew that help make this country the greatest nation in the world.

On behalf of our entire Post, we would also like to thank you for including two of our members in the group of veterans that were hosted by the American Lady for a Lunch Cruise.  According to their report on the event, they thoroughly enjoyed the cruise.  You have an outstanding crew and the food was excellent.  Thanks again for your support of our veterans.  God Bless America.

Our first trip to Dubuque, Iowa provided a day that we'll always remember.  There's no question that the best way to see this charming town is aboard the American Lady.  The cruise was very pleasant, from the kind and helpful staff to the beautiful scenery along the Mississippi River.  We felt free to roam around the entire boat and even visit the Captain!  We really feel that a visit to Dubuque would not be complete without a ride down the Mississippi aboard the American Lady.  We look forward to returning!

Thank you so much for an unforgettable evening.  The food was great, the service A+.  I could have just sat on the yacht forever-it was overwhelming!

One Saturday morning, my boyfriend and I went on a 4 hour canoe trip on the Upper Iowa River.  Afterwards, we headed for Dubuque, arriving in time to board the American Lady for the Happy Hour Cruise.  It was an hour and a half of cruising the Mississippi while consuming all the pizza and beer we wanted.  What fun!  The ship is beautiful and luxurious!  I really can't imagine a more enjoyable way to take in the beauty of the Mississippi!  It's probably a good thing that the other passengers didn't know that Captain Mike, who encourages patrons to come visit him in the wheelhouse, actually let me steer the yacht for a while and blow the horn!
