The Showboat Branson Belle is the most entertaining way to spend time on the lake!  Sporting the nostalgic appearance of a yesteryear river boat, much like the kind that were once plentiful along the Mississippi, this 1890’s style paddle wheeler is a majestic site on beautiful Table Rock Lake.  Guests aboard the Showboat enjoy an incredible show, a delicious three-course meal, prepared right there in the ship’s galley and served in the ship’s three-story atrium, and time to take in the stunning views from its four grand wrap-around decks.  There’s no other Branson experience quite like it!  Depending on the time of year and time of day you cruise, the Showboat offers a sensational show.  

COUNTRY ON THE LAKE:  The newest live production offered on the Showboat is the amazing Country on the Lake!  With an incredible cast of up-and-coming country stars, each boasting an impressive list of talents, this country rockin’ good time concert features songs heard on today’s country radio, as well as chart-topping classic rock hits.  This exciting show also pays tribute to country greats who made their first big splash in the 90’s - artists like Faith Hill and Garth Brooks, among others.  And the entertainment doesn’t end with this big stage performance; you’ll move up to the top deck of the boat, sit back in a comfy Adirondack deck chair, and experience a laid-back acoustic set, complete with cold beverages and those right-on-the-lake views that can’t be beat!

CELEBRATE:  The Showboat Branson Belle brings back the popular show, Celebrate!  It features Rhythm, the four-man dance troupe known as the ‘fastest feet west of the Mississippi,’ and Cassandre′ Faimon-Haygood, one of Branson’s premiere vocalists, and the powerhouse vocals of The ShowMen.  The show is blessed with a phenomenal live band, The Rockin’ Dockers, and Celebrate is hosted by comedian-magician extraordinaire, Christopher James.  The show’s name couldn’t be more apt, it truly ‘Celebrates’ the joy of live entertainment!  

SOUTHERN GOSPEL MUSIC:  From August 27 through September 3, good ole' southern gospel takes over the Showboat Branson Belle with an amazing lineup of well-known and loved gospel entertainers!  Scheduled to perform are:  BrIan Free & Assurance - August 27, Tribute Quartet - August 28, Wilburn and Wilburn - August 29, Gordon Mote - August 30, Karen Peck and New River - August 31, The Bowling Family - September 1, Gold City - September 1, and The Taylors - September 3.  

CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS:  On select dates, the Celebrate Christmas show features your favorite traditional holiday songs and more contemporary numbers, delivered with delightful dancing and a dash of humor!  There’s no better way to wrap a holiday bow around the whole family!  You’ll enjoy live entertainment that includes four-man dance troupe, Rhythm, the lovely voice of Cassandre Faimon-Haygood, The ShowMen with their powerful vocals, host Christopher James, the master of ceremonies, magic, and comedy...yep, he’s all that and more!

"Great way to celebrate my birthday!"

Rating of 5 stars  Reviewed September 13, 2017
We wound up with front row seats and enjoyed close up entertainment. The waiters & staff were very friendly. The food was very good and the service was quick. The performers were very talented and seemed to really enjoy what they do. When our waiter found out it was my birthday, he brought me a special dessert that made me feel special.

"Very Lovely Event"

Rating of 4 stars  Reviewed September 12, 2017
My wife and I took the Sunday luncheon cruise, Gospel On The Lake, and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was good and our waitress very attentive. The entertainment was good and we loved the casual intermission and mingling with everyone. The music was not loud, and pipped outside so we could enjoy it either way. We got some sun and it was a great first day in Branson.

Boat ride and food was great. Show was extremely loud and underwhelming. The trip on the lake was picturesque. Very friendly staff was quite helpful. The show isn't really aimed at the audience in attendance. It is modern country. So loud one couldn't understand the words.

"Outstanding in every way!"

Rating of 5 stars  Reviewed July 13, 2017
The entire experience was awesome. The emcee and all the performers were first class with and outstanding band that played during dinner. We attended the 4:00pm show which allowed ample time to have dinner, walk around on the upper deck and 3rd level outside. Food was excellent and just the right amount. Be careful not to lose your after dinner coffee....they give a last call for coffee and if you leave your seat for a moment, it will be gone. Our server, Crystal, started out fantastic until we asked where our coffee went. She was adamant it was last call and took offense to us asking for it back. She pushed our cups/saucers at us in a manner that caused my wife's to spill. Sorry for the inconvenience we caused you! Our specific server aside, this is a MUST SEE. Also worth the upgrade to Lieutenant's seating.

"Outstanding Experience"

Rating of 5 stars  Reviewed June 20, 2017
For us this experience was excellent in every way. The weather was beautiful. The MC was terrific in general but also with his clean humor and 'magic.' The singing and dancing was well done. The food was simple enough but really fantastic (we enjoyed quality food and don't need an excess of amount or variety). We have heartily recommended this sow to others.

"Best Cruise On The Lake"

Rating of 5 stars  Reviewed June 4, 2017
This is the second time in Branson and the second time on this cruise as the only change we did s we were on the dinner sailing. It is a truly great experience from the fantastic meal to the on board show. Did I say the scenic view is a bonus! I would recommend the captains table which gives you more room and service for a small upgrade fee. You will not be disappointed!!

Show was ok, but food was some of the worst we have ever eaten and this was supposed to be the 'best' menu. The ribeye steak was all bone, fat, without any actual meat. We brought it home and even our cats wouldn't eat it. We told the wait staff and nobody tried to replace it with anything else, etc so we had to eat elsewhere after getting off the cruise. It was a too bad, too sad attitude. I would not recommend it.

We had an awesome time on the Showboat Branson Belle. The entertainment was great and the meal was fantastic! We were able to cruise around on the lake even though the weather was rainy and misty. We really enjoyed the magic, comedy, singers and dancers. We would do this cruise again!

"Good & Bad"

Rating of 3 stars  Reviewed January 4, 2017
We had a group of 6 adults for our daughters 18th Birthday on 12-30-16 and enjoyed the show a lot. The cloggers were by far the best!! Only disappointing thing was we paid for a dinner cruise and because of weather the captain did not take the boat out of dock at all and we felt very disappointed when it was suppose to be a dinner cruise. We understand weather and safety is an issue but also felt they could of compensated us somehow to make our expensive experience a better one for the Birthday girl. Over all food and entertainment was enjoyable!!

We went on the lunch cruise and the entire trip was wonderful, including the weather. Great day, despite my girlfriend having a slight accident while on the boat. Nothing serious though. She was anxious to take this showboat cruise and I'm glad that it did not disappoint her.

Over the past 40 years I have been to Branson 7 times and the Showboat Branson Belle 3 times. We are planning on going back in June and the Belle is on the agenda. Basically you are going to have a good meal along with 3 shows of some kind. Weather it be jugglers, comics, a dog act, singing, acrobats, etc. There is also time to take in the beauty of the lake up close.

The Branson Belle dinner cruise was the last show we saw while in Branson last week (May 10, 2013) and what a show it was. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again and enjoy the meal and the entertainers. Christopher James definitely started off with a bang. Then when Janice Martin and The Showmen came on, I couldn't believe how absolutely great they all were. They were all 5 Star!!! You can't go wrong with the 4 p.m. show. Fantastic.

When I called, Derrick answered my call and proceeded to tell me a bit of what they could do to help my wife, son, and me on a short vacation in Branson, also mentioning a company that could assist in getting out of an unwanted time share. As time share owners in Florida, Derrick was able to find us three exceptional shows at greatly reduced prices. When we attended the shows, the seating at each one was excellent and we were blessed and thrilled with their uniqueness and quality.
