"Great Show Great Service!"
November, 2016 NEW
We were on the Showboat Branson Belle 11/25/2016 seated in row P table 2 our server was Mikayla and she did an outstanding job for us . Her service was exceptional and the information she gave us about our time on the boat was very helpful. She made our visit one that we will long remember. The show was outstanding and I can't remember the last time we laughed so hard! It was a most enjoyable experience and we will be back again next time we are in Branson.
Tip: Get your tickets early for the best seating choices.

"Fun on the Showboar Branson Belle"
August, 2016
The musical selections and the talent was tremendous. It overly compensated for the iceberg (no nutritional value) should have been romaine salad!
Tip: Get ready to relax and enjoy!

"Seeing the Branson Belle through Reserve Branson"
July, 2016
We went to the 8:00 pm Branson Belle Showboat on Tuesday July 5th. I figured that since we got our tickets just a couple weeks before our trip that the seats would be in the nose bleed section or way up somewhere. When we exchange our e-tickets for the genuine tickets the Ticket Agent said that these were very good seats. I was actually going to upgrade to attempt to get better seats. I am very glad I didn't. Our seats were on the aisle and the 4th row from the front of the stage. I was flabbergasted. We could see every performer with out an issue. I even posted to my Facebook account about the Great Seats we got through Reserve Branson.
Tip: One Paddle Boat looks and operates like any other Paddle Boat. We have been on the Spirit of Peoria many times so it was quick to tour. The Stage and performances were Great. I am thinking about going back for their Christmas Program.

The Showboat is authentic and has its own story. The food was better than I expected (my expectations were low due to someone else's review). We were about to pay the upgrade for the food, but for eight people that would have been over $100. I'm glad we didn't pay the extra because the roast beef and chicken were both very flavorful, moist and enjoyable. That usually isn't the case when serving so many banquet style meals at once. The two side were delicious too. The salad comes with a standard dressing; tasting like a sweet onion type dressing. Not my favorite, but it was good. The ice cream pie was also good, just not my favorite flavor. Lack of choice is probably the greatest downside since there is no choice under the general menu. (Hence the reason for upgrading to another price level.) The show was average, but entertaining enough nonetheless. The magician/comedian involves audience members, which is probably what makes his jokes funny. The wait staff is pleasant and pretty attentive. (You will be reminded to tip them. You have to use your judgement how much of the ticket price you're tipping on for the meal since the boat ticket is for the ride, show, and meal.) Still, all in all, it's a nice outing. I took some time to explore the boat a little before the departure. Meals are served promptly and the the boat departs from the dock while the guests are eating. By then, this being November, it's too dark and chilly to enjoy the view from the outside of the boat anyway. Try it at least once for the experience. Now I've checked it off my list of things to do.

This was our first trip to Branson and we had a fantastic time! The icing on the cake was our lunch cruise on the Showboat Branson Belle! Wow!!!! Of all the shows we have seen, in Branson and otherwise, this is at the TOP of our list! Christopher James is an incredibly professional and entertaining MC, comic and magician! Cassandre is lovely, with a beautiful voice! The Show men had the most gorgeous harmonies and very energetic numbers! Rhythm offered incredible tap dancing! There was something for everyone in The Christmas Extravaganza. The food and service were top notch! My favorite part of it all was the salute to troops and veterans. Go!!!! You will not regret it!

. My Mom & Dad and I go to Branson once a year. The Branson Belle. I have rode on this Paddle boat at least 6 times, and each time it is absolutely top notch in everything! My most recent experience was November 14, 2016 . We took the 12:00 lunch cruise this time. We had Beef Roast with gravy and baked Chicken, home style mashed Potatoes, steamed Carrots and snap Peas Delicious! During Lunch we were very entertained by Christopher James and his comical musical companions!
