Branson Belle History

Before the turn of the century, before the invention of the motion picture, before the invention of the television, many people found their entertainment aboard the many showboats that paddled across America's waterways. Folks in rural towns that were near a river eagerly awaited the moment when the showboat would arrive. Each person looked forward to the sites and sounds aboard a ship that would not be seen anywhere else.

The Showboat Branson Belle continues the tradition with top flight family-oriented entertainment. It is the largest paddle wheel steamboat in the United States on a landlocked lake. The Showboat looks as historically accurate as possible so as to create the illusion that you have stepped back in time. At 265-foot long, it is larger than the 1880's showboats that once plied North American rivers.

Branson's White River Landing

Before entering the steamship, visit the treasure-filled shops of scenic White River Landing. Explore McAdoo's Boatworks for treasures or step inside Layton Mercantile for the finest selection of ladies' goods. Once you have done your shopping, it's time to come aboard!

From the moment you first step onto the dock at White River Landing, you feel as if you have stepped back into the Victorian age.

Branson Belle Dinner Shows

Diners take their seats at tables accommodating two, four, or six in the Showboat's 650-seat dinner theater.

husband and wife dance team of Elena and Vadim Serykh and the famous ventriloquist Todd Oliver and his talking dog, Irving. The evening cruise also includes the 'Steppin' Out' Orchestra, which will help you to travel back in time with their classic music of the depression years, World War II, and the 1950s.

Branson Belle Luch Shows

On the lunch cruise, Cirque Fantastique, a whimsical troupe of acrobats, stilt walkers, and comics, stages a theatrical circus show that soars from juggling and unicycle stunts to high flying trapeze acts near the third story decorative ceiling.

Branson Belle Sightseeing

In addition to the top-quality entertainment onstage, Showboat Branson Belle gives guests a chance to tour the Showboat's four decks as it cruises scenic Table Rock Lake, noted for its 800 miles of pristine shoreline surrounded by wooded hills. The Showboat Captain is also at your disposal to provide his unique insight on the Showboat experience.

Don't miss out on this wonderful opportunity to witness history first hand. The 2 hour cruises run from April ' December. Lunch and dinner shows are available for purchase.

Just as the century-old 'floating palaces' brought big city entertainment to isolated communities, the Showboat Branson Belle will steam across your heart as it steams across Table Rock Lake

Showboat Branson Belle Lunch & Dinner Cruises
My family and i had a wonderful time on the branson belle boat. The meal was wonderful and to know that you had other meal options for my daughter that has celiac diease and she was able to be apart of this was a comfort to me, thank you. We also enjoyed the extra concert afterwards under the gazebo as we were walking back to the car. That evening was the rolf family. It was nice to see their warm smiles and we were even able to chat with them after wards. It was a treat all the way around. Thank you so much, keep up the good work. Thank you and god bless!

Showboat Branson Belle Lunch & Dinner Cruises
Me and my husband were visiting my mother-in-law in missouri and decided to take our two kids (ages 9 and 15) and go hop on the branson belle because we thought it would be a fun family event!! Some relatives of mine had told me about it and how they had a blast and we thought we would try it out!!! The food was very delicious. Actually, one of the best meals i've ever had in my life. I especially enjoyed the dessert!! The service was great, and the show was pretty good as well. My kids especially loved the talking dogs act as did my husband and i. I would definitely recommend the branson belle to anyone looking for good food, good service, and most importantly a great time!!!!
