Murder Mystery Dinner Cruise
Come aboard for a spooky and memorable journey on the historic Belle of Louisville—the perfect immersive setting for mystery and intrigue! While cruising the Ohio River, enjoy a gourmet meal and live murder mystery show that you can only see onboard the Belle. Can you figure out who the killer is? Is it the Deckhand? The Purser? The Musician? The Rich Passenger?
Eat, Drink & Discover!
The name says it all! While aboard the world’s oldest-operating Mississippi River-style steamboat, guests will enjoy exciting programming, including music, interactive activities and content from community partners. Each cruise has a new and exciting theme, ranging from history and science to music or culture! Those with “Eat and Drink” tickets will also be invited to visit food and drink stations while exploring the historic vessel.
Steamboat Supper Cruise
Come aboard for a hearty and delicious meal while you enjoy the sights and sounds of the river as we show you the town from an all-new perspective—out on the water. Grab a cocktail from our full bar, then sit back, relax and enjoy your meal. This is a two-hour excursion.
Picnic Lunch Cruise
Who likes picnics? Who likes riverboats? We think these two things go together like peas and carrots, so we’re hosting a picnic out on the river! Join us for a fun, informal excursion including activities for the kids and delicious food. Take your pre-selected boxed lunch and find your favorite seat. Then, sit back and relax! This is a two-hour excursion.
McAlpine Locks Lunch Cruise
This one-of-a-kind, highly requested river cruise aboard the Mary M. Miller riverboat is unlike any other experience we offer, allowing guests the first-hand experience of passing through the McAlpine Locks. Built in the 1920s, the McAlpine Locks are the only way to safely navigate past the Falls of the Ohio, the only obstruction along the Ohio River… which spans 981 miles throughout six states!
Bring your family and friends together aboard the historic Belle of Louisville for our exciting, once-a-month event—Bubbly Brunch! Grab a complimentary Mimosa or Bloody Mary and enjoy a delicious southern-style meal with live music while taking a relaxing ride down the river—the perfect way to end the weekend. After your meal, feel free to explore the 108-year-old steamboat, including her historic engine room, with VIP access to the Pilot House!
Indulge in a truly special evening aboard the historic Belle of Louisville for our Captain’s Dinner!
