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.
