Belle of the Cincinnati, the flagship of BB Riverboats, arrives at the Henderson Riverfront this Wednesday, October 19, offering locals an exclusive opportunity to board, tour, and dine on this luxury riverboat.
Henderson is no stranger to welcoming big name riverboats such as the Delta Queen, Queen of the Mississippi, and the American Queen, but spectators traditionally are not allowed to board the riverboats because they arrive full of passengers. BB Riverboats representative Nancy Willhoite ensures, “For this specific tour, the Belle of the Cincinnati will arrive empty so that we can welcome many Henderson passengers.”
If you would like to walk aboard the Belle of Cincinnati, guided family oriented sightseeing cruise tickets are available for adults and kids. There will be two boarding times that locals can hop on board the boat, 11:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. They will also be offering lunch and dinner cruises during these times. A dining cruise ticket purchase includes a two-hour cruise up and down the Ohio River, entertainment, complete with buffet water, iced-tea, coffee and dessert. Passengers will have access to the cash bar during lunch and dinner. Just remember you must call in advance to purchase either a sightseeing or dining cruise (call 800-261-8586 or visit www.bbriverboats.com to make reservations, see below for pricing details).
Among the boat’s fine amenities are lavish Victorian décor, climate controlled decks, full bar, elevator access (three levels are wheelchair accessible), and an open air upper deck make this antique riverboat a prime opportunity to share a romantic riverboat dining experience. It makes a great venue for a couple’s night out, or even for hosting large corporate or private events.
