On the General Jackson Dinner Cruise and Show in Nashville, you'll have an unforgettable time aboard the historic 300-foot-long General Jackson Showboat.

You'll cruise the Cumberland River and enjoy a seated dinner and stage show aboard the largest showboat in the world. The General Jackson Dinner Cruise is one of the most popular activities in Nashville. Many visitors attend the Grand Ole Opry and take the General Jackson Dinner Cruise.

Whether you're looking for romance, dancing, or just an evening of festive musical entertainment, evening cruises on the General Jackson Showboat offer something for everyone. Styled in the grand tradition of the paddlewheel riverboats that cruised the great Southern waterways in the 1800s, the General Jackson was named after the first steamboat to operate on the Cumberland River in 1817. Today, it's just as active as its predecessor.
