"Interesting show"
Reviewed July, 2015 NEW
Really, the dinner was good, the entertainment was okay and the ride was almost non-existent. The reason I say this, the dinner was average for dinner excursions - nothing was outstanding, but it tasted good. The entertainment was okay, as in they had pretty good dancers, the female singer was a bit off pitch - but was better as a comedian, and the speaker was okay. The actual ride was in a darkened room by closing all the drapes over the windows. I suppose this was to lessen the distraction of the sights outside the room. I would have preferred the opportunity to see the countryside while being entertained. I believe I would have enjoyed the views.
Tip: It is good family entertainment with a christian ending.

This was our first experience with the Showboat Branson Belle. We were fortunate enough to get to enjoy the USA show before it's send off at the end of the season. It was a great mix of magic, comedy, illusion, acrobatics and of course, music! We were seated in the front row and the entertainers interacted with our family. It was so much fun! To say the least, the entertainment was superb! The food was delicious and filling! It was so neat to walk about the boat and enjoy the breathtaking scenery of Table Rock Lake!

Our 7 and 3 year old daughters were so impressed by the showboat. We are very blessed in that we have experienced many things in their young lives. With that said, it can be hard to impress them. As soon as the girls walked on the boat they were in so excited....pretty sure they felt a little "royal". The entire show and dinner were enjoyable. We will likely do this again.

This is one show you don't want to miss in Branson. The stars at night on top of the showboat were amazing away from the lights of town out on the lake. Entertainment was the best show we saw in two trips to Branson. The meal was good and the musicians were truly professional. Laughed the whole time. Don't miss this show.
Tip: take a jacket along, depending on the weather it could be cool out on top of the Showboat while looking at the stars

Our first time to do a showboat and we were totally awed! The cruise was on the waters of Table Rock Lake and even tho it was hot outside, it was cool and great inside the boat. The Emcee, Aaron Radatz was great and very entertaining. Do NOT know how he did those magic tricks, but, guess we were not supposed to know. Our waitress was great! We had great seats - right in front. Janice Martin was fantastic! Jason Yeager - beautiful voice! Phil Hughes was very funny and "The Castaways" and the music they provided during the trip - fantastic! The food - salad, hot buttered dinner roll, the tender beef roast, honey-dijon glazed chicken, sugar snap peas with julienne carrots and a lemon-berry torte drizzled in carmel, ice tea - absolutely delicious! This is something I would come back to do every time! A very must when visiting Branson!

The Showboat Branson Belle was absolutely wonderful! We truly enjoyed every minute, from the moment we boarded the ship until we docked. It was a very beautiful, and entertaining cruise. We were welcomed aboard by a very friendly staff, and seated very quickly. The shows were great! There was something for everyone in the entertainment and great fun! The dinner was also very good, with nice portions and the food very tasty! We were allowed time in between shows to walk around the deck and enjoy the beauty outside of the cruise. As we were strolling the deck, we were invited into the Captain's deck and had nice conversation with him and a great photo op! The Branson Belle is truly a gem and we plan to make this an annual event!
