Purchased tickets through tripster. It made things so easy. Just went to office with e-tickets and was immediately handed my tickets for show. Couldn't have had better seats. Right up front close to stage. Would highly recommend using tripster. Definitely will use again. Thoroughly enjoyed the show and food.

"The hight of our anniversary"
August 2019
We were celebrating our 48th anniversary and wanted something off the strip; the Showboat was a perfect choice. The staff was very friendly and attentive, the MC was fun and engaging, and the entertainers were very professional. We hardly recognized when we left the dock or returned, so the seamanship of the crew was spot on. We always felt safe and secure. It was a great pleasure to experience such a magnificent event from being welcomed onboard to meeting the captain as we disembarked. Well done, everyone!

"Fun night on Table Rock Lake"
July 2019
We were aboard the 8pm cruise on Table Rock Lake. We weren't sure what to expect but it was very well organized. There was time to walk around the ship, have supper with entertainment, stretch our legs again and watch the show. There was enough time to explore the vessel and after supper, there was even entertainment on deck. The ship itself was quite cold (in July) so I suggest you bring a sweater. The service was good; our server was very nice and accommodating.

"The shortest cruise that never happened"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed November 13, 2019 NEW
Went on the cruise for the Pancakes and PJs tour with Santa Claus. Was told to be there by 8:30 am, the cruise would start at 9:30 and would end at 12:00. We got there on time as scheduled got on board around 8:30 and the kids started their activities. At 9:30 when they started serving the breakfast (which was fastfood pancakes and sausage) the captain informed us that due to weather conditions we would not be leaving dock. I was fine with this because I figured the show would keep us entertained for the duration of our stay. To my surprise the show was done and over with in an hour at which time we disembarked. I'm not terribly upset as I am more confused. The original cruise was suppose to be an two and a half hours but we only got an hour so did they cut the duration of the show down or was it only an hour? I can't imagine it only being an hour if we were suppose to be out on the lake that long. I was also surprised that we weren't offered any kind of compensation for what we didn't get. I had been on the cruise before and it was fine, this one didn't sit well with me.

The Branson Belle provides a great experience. The food was excellent, the view was beautiful, and the entertainment was, well, entertaining. I would suggest upgrading, so one can choose the food one wants. However, the general meal still looked very good.

We went here as arranged by our tour bus. They greeted us immediately given our table placement numbers and were told how to embark the boat.Pictures were taken and we boarded. We were greeted and immediately served coffee, water, tea. You can also order alcohol or soft drinks. Our server was Myrna and she served our whole group effectively and was very pleasant. Meal consisted of chicken, roast beef, garlic potatoes and beans. Dessert was Strawberry ice cream cheese cake. Meal was tasty. Entertainment was excellent and they involved the audience. They incorporated a Christmas theme for part of the show. Our group was very impressed with the whole evening and had all positive reviews.

I was there with a bus group for an evening show. There is a security check of purses before boarding. I was in awe of the size of the showroom! It was huge! They seated us at our table & you have your own server in your row that take care of all your food needs with a smile & so friendly. Food was delicious. Show was amazing from the emcee magician to the dancers & band. I've not laughed so hard in a long time & loved all the music & dance styles. Singers were amazing. It was a part Christmas show & really want to come back for the regular show another day. Never really felt the ship move but after dinner we went outside to take a peak in the frigid air & we were moving! I never felt any movement the whole time. Amazing. I've been coming to Branson for 20 yrs & sorry I have missed coming here all this time.
