Twilight Riverboat Cruises are having a big spring cruise sale to celebrate the start of the 2014 "Cruise through the Heartland" season. Said to be the most elegant riverboat to be launched in the last 100 years, the Twilight is fast and quiet as she slips through the water. Departures and returns of the 1 and 2-day cruises are from Front Street Pier in LeClaire, Iowa. The destination is Port of Dubuque, Iowa. ( )

There are three decks with comfortable dining salons and sundecks with lounge chairs to sightsee or snooze in the sun. It was designed and built by Captain Dennis Trone, and is a replica of the lavish Victorian steamboats of a century ago. Her unique rounded stern and ornate architectural detailing are reminders of those classic riverboats Mark Twain called "Floating Palaces".

Overnight Accommodations are at the Grand Harbor Resort. Ideally situated in the Port of Dubuque, Iowa, and featuring a winning combination of service, amenities, and entertainment, the Grand Harbor Resort & Waterpark is the Midwest’s premier destination for meetings, group events, and family vacations. The hotel offers magnificent views of historic downtown Dubuque, city bluffs and spectacular views of the sparkling Mississippi River just steps outside the door. (

A special treat, while cruising the Twilight Riverboat, are eagle sightings. They provide a comprehensive map of eagle nests on the Mississippi River--which are visible only from the riverside.
