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!
