Good To Know

from Ashley, one of our Branson Travel Experts
  • Showboat sets sail rain or shine
  • There is time to stroll on the deck and experience the beauty of Table Rock Lake.
  • Enjoy food freshly made at Silver Dollar City 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.

"Great Show Great Service!"
November, 2016
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.

We had the opportunity to ride the Belle not knowing what all was going to take place on board. Once aboard, we got fed a fabulous meal. I have to say that the entertainment was awesome!!! Christopher James kept everybody laughing throughout the entire show. The singers and dancers were great!! The show ended with a fabulous magic trick. The entire show kept the attention of my two children and the ending magic trick left them asking how it was done. I would highly recommend this to anyone of any age. Don't forget to walk all around the boat!!

We paid $378 plus tax for 6 tickets in the lieutenants row. If you decide to go I feel these were excellent seats. The entertainment was okay.. talented performers but cheesy and if you're under 40 you will not recognize most of the songs leaving our two teenagers pretty bored. The food left a lot to be desired. While the roast and potatoes were edible the chicken and vegetables were cold and rubbery. The roll was more like a large crouton, very dry, very hard. They don't serve soda unless you buy an extra $10 cup with unlimited refills which they refilled all of once. When my asked for a refill she was told to wait until he served the food. Also, once the food is served they stop refilling drinks all together. There is a 45 min break and then another hour show all without a drink. Not even our water. Don't go if there is any sort of weather. It was sprinkling outside with wind gusts of 14 mph and they would not leave the dock. So for over $400 we didn't even get to cruise. I wish they would have told us before we boarded and offered a refund or at very least tickets for a different time. The girls did get to go up to the captains area which was about the only part they enjoyed. We love SDC we buy season passes every year and always enjoy ourselves so we were surprised to see how run down rhey have allowed this ship to become. Bathrooms are filthy, ceiling tiles are falling and stained. Railings are chipped, rusted, and loose inside and out. For the price SDC could manage a fresh coat of paint at least.
