Do you ever wish you could just sail away and leave your worries behind for a little while? Maybe take in the glorious beauty of nature, enjoy some great music or light-hearted entertainment and savor a delicious meal?
For over 20 years the Showboat Branson Belle has been cruising gorgeous Table Rock Lake and giving guests a chance to leave their cares at the dock for 2 relaxing hours of adventure and entertainment. As we embark on a brand-new season of cruises, there are even more reasons to choose the Showboat for your perfect lake experience.
The Showboat Branson Belle will launch its first cruises of the 2017 season in less than one month, and there are some exciting new features that will be debuting to make this one-of-a-kind experience more enjoyable than ever.
Beginning March 4, Celebrate returns to the Showboat Branson Belle stage with its unique blend of smooth harmonies, powerful vocals, high-speed footwork, live musicians and hilarious comedy magic. The stellar Celebrate cast will showcase their outstanding talent with new song selections that are sure to have you singing along, new choreography and new costumes, providing a fresh experience for returning guests.
This season Celebrate also features its own exclusive menu which includes honey citrus chicken and slow-cooked pot roast, garlic mashed potatoes and buttered sugar snap peas with glazed carrots. The meal is accompanied by a mixed garden salad, a freshly baked roll and Silver Dollar City’s apple cinnamon ice cream pie for dessert.
If you’re looking for a customized experience, then look no further than the new Captain’s Club. Captain’s Club guests will enjoy the best seats in the house, located in the first three rows of the balcony. An outstanding view of the stage isn’t the only benefit to cruising in the Captain’s Club -guests also receive priority boarding as well as the opportunity to choose from a selection of premium menu entrees and desserts.
Starting May 27, embark on an all-new live music and lunch adventure with Country On The Lake at noon aboard the Showboat. Multi-talented up-and-coming country singers and musicians have been tapped to provide a concert-style stage show featuring your favorite country music from the 90s to today. These are the songs that the whole family loves to sing along to, including smash hits from the likes of Garth Brooks and Faith Hill. Plus, look for some fun classic rock anthems as well.
Country On The Lake has its own delicious new menu that pairs perfectly with the relaxed country atmosphere of the new show. These noon cruises will feature slow-smoked pulled pork and tender barbecue chicken along with loaded mashed potatoes and roasted corn with sweet peppers, accompanied by a mixed garden salad and freshly baked roll. Silver Dollar City’s apple cinnamon ice cream pie provides a delicious finale to the feast.
In addition to new live music, new menu options and new premium experiences, the Showboat itself will boast fresh updates for the 2017 season. Look for elegantly simple and clean décor; natural light and continual lake views; and more space per table for a truly comfortable cruise experience.
One of the most enticing features of a cruise aboard the Showboat Branson Belle is the opportunity to spend time on beautiful Table Rock Lake. Four grand decks afford guests plenty of room to stroll along and enjoy the scenery. This season the lake experience is featured more prominently than ever before with an extended intermission between the meal service and the start of the show, leaving plenty of time for guests to relax and enjoy their time outside at a more leisurely pace.
Enhancements to the top deck this season, including live music, mean that the time between meal and show isn’t just an intermission, but an open-air extension of the entertainment experience. In addition, scores of comfy Adirondack-style chairs have been added to provide a kicked-back atmosphere for guests to take in gorgeous views of the Ozarks while enjoying the music with a refreshing drink.
If you’ve never experienced the Showboat Branson Belle, take some time away from the hustle and bustle and treat yourself to an unforgettable journey. The Showboat is perfect for families, for couples, for friends and for group gatherings as well. If you’re a returning visitor, we welcome you back and hope you enjoy all of the new experiences in store for 2017.
