Good To Know

from Ashley, one of our Branson Travel Experts
  • Food is served while you enjoy the show.
  • It can get a bit chilly on-board the Showboat so a light jacket is a good idea.
  • Bring your camera.
  • Showboat sets sail rain or shine
  • There is time to stroll on the deck and experience the beauty of Table Rock Lake.

The musical selections and the talent was tremendous. It overly compensated for the iceberg (no nutritional value) should have been romaine salad!

"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.

"Save your $ and pass on this"
July, 2016
Reservations were in the Paddlewheel Room. The server was very good and the food was better than last year, but not great. Mediocre. Rhythm and the 9 minute medley was the best part of the show, the rest was fair. Actually somewhat boring. My daughter enjoyed the Disney Princess medley- me, not so much. The girl who was dealing with the pictures the boat sells was a story in itself. I didn't realize the picture was copyrighted and I took a picture of it. She rudely informed me the picture was copyright and demanded I delete the picture, which I did. And the next one, as she stood there monitoring my phone. The picture warden! But it was such a petty thing to be so crabby about and create a hostile environment for a top paying guest and family. ($75 each) I was like "Are you KIDDING ME?" Apparently she doesn't realize there is a deleted picture folder that store deleted photos for 40 days? A few other staff we interacted with were also cranky - bad day, maybe? After this experience, we won't be paying money for this again. Better shows in Branson to spend our hard earned money on who have pleasant staff. I can get crabby people at work and at home and a blah meal. Who needs it on vacation? Not me! Gave The Branson Belle two tries. That's enough for me. I'm being gracious giving it 3 stars

Be sure and get there early. We were 45 minutes early and a long line had already started forming. I suggest going while you can still see outside because the scenery is breathtaking. They give you an option to take a picture and purchasing it. I believe that should be a part of the package instead of having to purchase it separately.

"Very Nice Experience"
June, 2016
Our time on the Branson Belle was very enjoyable. We really liked being able to look out over Table Rock Lake from the bow of the boat. The show was very entertaining, Janet Martin is an amazing multi-talented performer as are the rest of the cast.
The lunch was very good with only one complaint. Having 2 entrees seems a little too much but I'm sure those with large appetites were very pleased. Over all a good time for the whole family.

"Lovely Boat-Updated Show"
June, 2016
The Branson Belle is always a joy to ride around Table Rock Lake. The meals for kids needs some heavy duty updating so they will eat it. My 12yr old grandson had to eat the same meal as the adults because they did not cook enough for the kids. Needless to say it did not get eaten and at $50 a ticket I felt this was a waste of money. They do have some different entertainment this year but it was not very good. I quit watching the show and stayed on the top deck to watch the lake. Was a little disappointed to see that they cruise one small circle and then dock to the boat. You don't see this when you are inside watching the show so I never noticed this before. I have taken this show many times but will not take it again.

Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and the show on the Branson Belle. We took the cruise and night and were a little disappointed with the lack of lighting around the lake. The show was fantastic and the meal was definitely a step above dinner/ theater meals. Would recommend taking the cruise during the daylight hours next time.
Tip: The daytime cruise would offer more views than the evening cruise.

October, 2015
The magician/comedian was excellent as were most of the singers, although the female lead when we were there could have been better. The songs they chose were wonderful, but mostly only sang parts of the songs. Our four kids enjoyed walking around the boat more than the entertainment, which was probably better for adults. I would highly recommend for an older crowd.

"Interesting show"
July, 2015
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!

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

We have done most of the Branson, SDC attractions many times, somehow we never get sick of the showboat cruises. Entertainment is fabulous, the soloist isn't our favorite but the dance groups, band, singing groups and most of all the showboat servers are phenomenal as is the food (you will not leave hungry) We had Joshua as our server the last several times and he is amazing, such a caring personality, made our daughter feel extremely special! It is so nice to have such a family based place to make memories!

We knew they had redone the show this year and we hoped that it would be as good as last year and it was even better than we hoped. Definitely make this dinner show a must do!! The food was excellent and the wait staff are very attentive!

The main show was the highlight of this trip! It was musical in nature and the artist (singers) were wonderful. The meal was ok. Nothing special. Our time available to be outside was very limited and I would have appreciated more time on the outside decks. But we were able to visit with the captain in the wheelhouse and that was awesome!

Good food, and the entertainments was great. The experience was well organized, and our server was really good to us. Getting to go to the Wheel house was a fun experience.

Boarding was not very organized. Had just one security person checking purses for weapons, etc. Very crowded seating and we couldn't see the show very well due to our location. Food was mediocre and were told to consume it as soon as we received each course because it would be collected quickly. Be sure to take some cash with you to tip the servers. Only a 15 minute intermission to use restrooms and tour the boat. Show had a variety of acts and the performers were talented and seemed to give it their all.
