The Showboat Branson Belle, Branson, Missouri, cruises on March 7 to start the 2019 season, featuring specialty cruises and events, plus fireworks on select days. All cruises offer a unique experience aboard the 700-passenger, historically-inspired paddle-wheeler, with multi-level decks for viewing scenic Table Rock Lake in Branson, Missouri. New for 2019, fireworks cap the evening cruises during spring break on March 15–16 and 22–23.
Inside, in a dining theatre that spans three stories, the ship’s performers deliver on the promise of “most entertaining” with new songs, dances and comedy in a variety show featured on noon and dinner cruises. Music genres include classic favourites like Elvis hits, ‘70s and ‘80s classic rock from artists such as the Eagles, Journey and Fleetwood Mac, and movie soundtrack hits from Grease, Footloose, and even Star Wars. The show also features the Deckhands dancers, award-winning comedy and magic, and a live band.
The Showboat Branson Belle is a unique attraction that in itself is a one-of-a-kind experience with three navigable upper decks, 360º lake views from the top deck, a fully-functioning pilot-house guests can visit, a six-foot wooden vintage captain’s wheel, and atrium-style dining theatre serving up dining options before the show starts.
A fireworks finale on the lake also caps the evening cruises on June 30, July 4, each Sunday in July, and August 4 and 11. Seasonal specialty cruises include the kids-themed Princess & Pirate Cruises on select Sunday mornings in June, July and August and Santa’s Pancakes & PJs cruises on select weekends in November and December. Southern Gospel Music Cruises featuring top artists are offered at noon August 25 – September 1.
