At the Showboat Branson Belle, we firmly believe that life is better on a boat any time of the year. When you think of Christmas, the lake might not be the first thing that comes to mind, but aboard the Showboat Branson Belle the spirit of the holiday season comes alive with cruises celebrating this most wonderful time of year!
Decked out for Christmas, the Showboat’s ambience of casual elegance is warmer and more inviting than ever. You can explore the boat’s four grand decks for stunning views of Table Rock Lake, or stay cozy inside and enjoy the breathtaking vistas from within the atrium.
Each special Christmas cruise features a delicious meal, freshly prepared in the ship’s galley, along with top-notch family-friendly entertainment, making a Showboat Branson Belle cruise a complete holiday entertainment experience.
Attention Christmas music lovers: this musical variety show is packed with Christmas cheer as talented vocalists, backed by a live band, light up the stage with your favorite holiday tunes, from classic to contemporary! Celebrate Christmas features the angelic vocals of singer Cassandrè Faimon-Haygood and the richly-textured harmonies of five-member male vocal group The ShowMen, delivering renditions of some of the greatest Christmas songs of all time.
But that’s not all – you won’t believe your eyes, or ears, when four-man dance troupe Rhythm takes to the stage with precision footwork faster than Santa’s sleigh. Plus, Celebrate Christmas is hosted by Christopher James, whose non-stop humor and impressive illusions provide the perfect finishing touch to this magical lineup.
What could be more fun for kids (and adults for that matter) than to head out of the house in their favorite Christmas jammies for a delicious breakfast and chance to meet Santa himself? Santa’s Pancakes & Pjs Cruises are an unforgettable way to make Christmas memories for your kiddos. In addition to a hearty breakfast, they’ll enjoy special interactive Christmas activity stations and a festive stage show featuring music, dance and comedy.
This whimsical holiday experience culminates with a visit and photo with Santa back on the dock.
Speaking of the dock, the Showboat’s home at White River Landing is another important part of the Christmas experience. Stroll the beautifully decorated grounds and take in the scenery while you enjoy a gourmet coffee, hot chocolate or hot apple cider. For a decadent seasonal snack, stop by the firepit for a freshly-toasted marshmallow s’more. Then explore Layton’s Mercantile and McAdoo’s Boatworks for unique gifts for everyone on your list.
