While visiting *Branson recently we had the opportunity to board the Showboat Branson Belle for “America’s Most Entertaining Dinner Cruise.” Our experience included exceptional food and the show, CELEBRATE! which featured a dynamic performers with an energetic range of talent in two hours of comedy, magic, music, and dance. The Belle set sail on beautiful Table Rock Lake in Branson, Missouri where we enjoyed premium seating and service that included a delicious 3-course meal freshly prepared in the ship’s galley. The Showboat Branson Belle, known as the “Queen of the Ozarks” is themed after the historic showboats of the 1800s. The atmosphere of the Belle exudes the nostalgia and romance of days gone by when the steamboat was the way to travel the mighty Mississipi. Daytime cruisers will enjoy views of gorgeous Table Rock Lake from three decks. We recommend going to the top deck to get the best vantage point to enjoy panoramic views of the Ozark Mountains and Table Rock Lake. With a capacity of 700 passengers, the top deck was less crowded than some of the lower decks.Most of our two-hour cruise was occupied by entertainment on stage, where the four-man dance troupe, Rhythm – The Fastest Feet West of the Mississippi stole the show with their energetic performance. Accompanied by a live band the lovely Cassandrè Faimon-Haygood joined The ShowMen to present old and new musical favorites before wrapping up the family-friendly show with patriotic verve. The highlight of the entire evening was host, Christopher James, who kept the show hopping with comedy gold and some magic too.The Showboat Branson Belle provides a fabulous evening (or afternoon) of food and entertainment along with the ride of a lifetime that offers views that everyone should experience from the deck of a showboat at least once in their life. Don’t miss the boat!
