Admiral’s Dinner 21+

On the Belle of Louisville

About this Cruise

To celebrate the milestone 110th anniversary of Louisville’s legendary lady, The Belle of Louisville, we’ve reimagined the Captain’s Dinner for an even more intimate and exclusive experience.


Your evening starts with tours by Master Captain Mark Doty and crew of areas on the boat that are typically off-limits, including the Pilot House. The evening includes a dockside buffet dinner, your choice of wine, and live entertainment. After dinner, you may retire to the upper deck for a gorgeous sunset view or hit the dance floor as the band transitions from mellow dining music to livelier sets just right for dancing.


After your dockside dinner and VIP tour from 6 to 7:00 p.m., you’ll leave real life behind on the shore and depart on a beautiful escape from reality aboard a Sunset Cruise from 7 to 9 p.m.

Your Admiral’s Dinner ticket includes a dockside buffet-style meal, one bottle of wine per couple, a behind-the-scenes tour and two-hour Sunset Cruise.
