Good To Know

from Ashley, one of our Branson Travel Experts
  • Show is held sail rain or shine.
  • Don't miss the boat! Boarding begins 1 hour prior to cruise time.
  • There is time to stroll on the deck and experience the beauty of Table Rock Lake.
  • It can get a bit chilly on-board the Showboat, so a light jacket is a good idea.
  • Bring your camera.
  • It offers four grand decks and recently remodeled decor for an unforgettable cruise experience.
  • We have arranged tables and seating so that guests can remove their face coverings while they eat. But we ask that they wear them at all other times.
  • Prior to entry, guests (and employees) will have a contactless temperature screening.

The food was good, dessert was ok and so was the show. Disappointing that we didn't go out of the port. It was our Anniversay and on my husband's bucket list. We left early.

"BAD"
July 2021
Out of the last twenty three years my wife and I have celebrated our wedding anniversary (this year 53 years) on the captain's row of the Showboat Belle Cruise, we had missed the last three years due to one thing or another. This year we had made reservations on July the 6th 2021. We were met at the entrance by a uniform person telling us what to expect and that we were to wear a mask from that point on until we were seated inside the theater, then before entering we were scan for weapons.
\tThe food had been great up until this time, the menu started off with a piece of lettuce (not even cut up) with a couple of pieces of green pepper, two slices of cucumber, two small slices of tomato, and salad dressing that didn't have much taste. The steak was fairly good, the desert was great, but no coffee to finish with.
\tWe did not enjoy the show itself as we had in the past.
\t With the money that we were out for tickets and compared to the past visits we expected a much better experience
\tRating the hold thing we would give a rating of 2 out of 5.

"Absolutely wonderful!"
June 2021
There were four of us in our group, and we had VIP seats. The food choices we’re great and the show was absolutely one of the best I Attended all week In Branson Missouri. The quality of the singers and dancers in the show was very professional. Boarding procedures were orderly And unhurried. I would definitely attend the show again anytime I am in Branson.

"Good time"
June 2021
Unfortunately the evening of our cruise the weather got so severe that it was unsafe to cruise so the boat stayed at the dock. We were able to have our dinner and enjoy the show though which was nice. The food was really tasty. While I enjoyed the show it did not appeal as much to my younger grandchildren who were pre teen and young teen. They liked the boat but probably would have chosen some other activity. The host was a not great but the show was good. They had great songs. Bit much variety though. I had been on this years ago and to my recall there was more variety to the show which made it more appealing to all ages. So, it’s a good show but I probably won’t do it again.

Tip: Bring an umbrella as there is a walk down to the dock and you can potentially be drenched by the time you get there if it’s raining!
