I think going and partying on the Gateway Clipper is really fun but the food is not that good and the drinks are expensive.  I have not been to the Captain’s Dinner & Dance cruise so I can’t say anything specifically about that one but I have been one it for other dance event and had a blast!

@Lee_Ann:what about just booking a room/table at a a resteraunt like buca in st. square and then riding the trolley up to Mt. Washington? I’m not sure how many ppl you will be having but i think that’s a fun atmosphere and Mt. Washington is a good way to showcase Pittsburgh.

I’ve been on the Capt. Dinner/Dance cruise, although it’s been a long time, and it’s a really wonderful and memorable thing, especially if you’ve never been on the Clipper and have a good weather night.  If it’s for your families to meet, who cares if it’s a little mellow and catering to an older crowd?  The tour is really the main event anyway.  

If you want better food, you can always do a Clipper tour and then take an incline up to Mt. Washington for dinner as others have suggested.  

A friend of mine rented a whole boat from the Clipper fleet for her reception.  Everyone loved it.

Not sure about those events in particular, but my Fiance proposed to me on the Gateway Clipper’s boat deck when we went to the Valentine’s Day dinner cruise. It was awesome and we really enjoyed the food/coffee and dancing. Best night of our lives. Also, it wasn’t just an old crowd. It was very mixed actually. There were definitely more young couples than we were expecting.
