This was a favorite adventure for us. We cruised through the locks and received a very informative lesson on the history of The Ohio lock sysytem. The cruise was affordable and well executed.

The cruise was good a little boring at times. Was not impressed with the food. Didnt care to much for the DJ that was controlling the music.

Thank you for cruising with us. The Belle is the oldest Authentic Mississippi style Steamboat in operation. We also think she is the best. She will be celebrating her 104th birthday this year.
