About this Cruise
Be prepared to come face-to-face with ghosts and apparitions—real and imagined—when you step aboard the 108-year-old haunted steamer Belle of Louisville. Seeing becomes believing as you are led through ghost tours on the Belle’s main deck, where a full body apparition was once reported in the Boiler Room. While real ghosts aren’t something to sneeze at, you will get the chance to create your own “Pepper’s Ghost” illusion and capture your ghostly image on camera. The ghostly frights don’t end there, as guests are invited explore the Captain’s Quarters, the normally off-limits cabin where legend states Captain Ben Winters died from a heart attack… and continues to haunt the vessel to this day.
Spend the remainder of your spooky evening getting your tarot cards read (to make sure you’re not next!), competing in a costume contest and enjoying a cash bar and concessions— After all, interacting with spirits requires are lot of energy!
