The Riverboat Cruise In North Carolina You Never Knew Existed

When one thinks riverboat cruise, you might think the mighty and majestic old-fashioned riverboats more acquainted for historic downtown Wilmington or gliding on the Neuse River beside New Bern. Surprisingly enough, the Catawba Queen doesn’t need coastal vibes – or even a river, for that matter. She rides along Lake Norman giving passengers an incredible back in time experience.

Like many North Carolinians, I really had no idea this unique gem existed in North Carolina and also the fact it was available for so many different types of cruises! Have you ridden on Lady of the Lake or Catawba Queen? What was your experience?
