Murder Mystery Dinner 21+

On the Belle of Louisville

About this Cruise

Was it the Deckhand? The Purser? The Musician? The Rich Passenger? Come aboard for a delightfully dramatic whodunit journey on the historic Belle of Louisville, the prefect immersive setting for mystery and intrigue. While cruising the Ohio River, enjoy dinner and an interactive murder mystery show exclusive to the Belle.

About the Show: “Murder and the Belle of Idlewild!”

The year is 1943 and the Idlewild (the original name for the Belle of Louisville), is serving as a USO party vessel along the Mississippi River. The main attraction is Ruby Belle Castle – a wild, flirtatious cabaret singer who has garnered a lot of enemies. Of course, someone wants to silence Ruby, and Detective Philip Merlot happens to be on hand to solve the murder.
