Dining Cruises

Brunch, lunch, supper and more! With both casual to upscale meal offerings to choose from, our Dining Cruises have something for everyone’s taste buds. While aboard the historic Belle of Louisville or the charming Mary M. Miller, guests will be treated to a dining experience with live entertainment! Pair this with the stunning sight of the Louisville skyline and there’s no place better to be.

Bubbly Brunch

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!

Captain’s Dinner

Indulge in a truly special evening aboard the historic Belle of Louisville for our Captain’s Dinner! Start your evening aboard Louisville’s Legendary Lady with a dockside meal, including your choice of red or white wine, while listening to music from Derby City Dandies. After dinner, take a self-guided tour of this regal vessel, where you will have access to areas that are off-limits during normal cruises (including the Pilot House, with the best view of the river anywhere!), as well as meet the Belle of Louisville’s Master Captain Mark Doty and crew.

Features Narration
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!

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?

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.

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.

What Our
Guests Say

We could talk for hours about what it’s like to spend a day on the river, but instead we thought we’d share what others are saying about the Louisville Lady.

Went on the Mary M. Miller Saturday night for a dinner cruise with my beautiful wife. Was a blast and had a great time! Great steamboat history on board, great food and atmosphere! Friendly helpful staff and can’t wait to go on another one soon! Belle of Louisville next!

Nick Hart

We had a great time on the boat enjoying the upper deck and the river views. Clean boat. Good food. The tour trip up river and back was just the right length of time. The crew were very nice and helpful. I would go on this again when I visit Louisville again.

Geoffrey Bretches

We really enjoyed our cruise. Everything was perfect. The DJ was comical and played the perfect music for our tour. He described some of the areas and we learned a lot about history. We left at 7 right before sunset and came back with the bridges lit up. Perfect for photos!

Trip Advisor

The Belle of Louisville is a must, no matter if you live in Louisville or just visiting. Even though us Louisvillians are not blessed with being near a beach, at least we have some cool boat rides and we can enjoy ourselves on over the Ohio River. This is one of those things in Louisville that you need to do at least once. It's always a great time!
